Hillside Private Property


The Defensive Handgun II class often meets the requirements for obtaining a Carry Concealed Weapons CCW permit in many CA jurisdictions, as well as in number of other states. Through a combination of classroom and range training over two days, we will cover the knowledge and skills required to carry a firearm for personal protection outside the home.

Day 1 (8-Hours Classroom):

*Learn ethical responsibility, defensive mindset/awareness, and how to avoid, respond to and control an encounter.
*Discuss legal considerations including proportionate use of force, CCW insurance, and the aftermath of a shooting.
*Prepare a plan including firearm/holster selection, and good habits such as scanning and assessing the environment.

Day 2 (8-Hours Range):

*Improve draw, accuracy, speed shooting, and target acquisition skills (including point shooting).
*Move to, use, and shoot from behind cover.
*Practice response drills (left, right, rear), and retention shots.

The Defensive Handgun series is designed to take students from static line shooting into applying their skills in a real world environment.  Through the supervision of our instructors, you will learn how to fight back with a firearm while under stress.


Ability to safely manipulate a handgun under stress.
Ability to consistently shoot a 8″ group at 10 yards with one shot every 2 seconds.
Ability to safely and healthfully navigate a live fire course under stress.
