This course starts with the trainee with their firearm in its holster, and goes from there. Proper technique in drawing from the holster is a major focus. Once safe in this action, the trainee will incorporate the follow-up actions of establishing a proper grip, sight picture and alignment, and trigger control.  Once able to apply these fundamentals, further training aspects include multiple real-world factors including common malfunction drills, multiple target zones, multiple targets, and more.
