The APH Course is designed as a companion course for students who have completed fundamental defensive shooting training in the IDS Program and want to expand their skill sets and increase competency. At the end of the course, the student will have been exposed to (and practiced) shooting positions from all plausible angles while standing, seated, kneeling, prone or supine as well as properly shooting around cover in order to maximize its protective value. Students will also train one handed firearm handling, reloading and malfunction clearing. Unlike the Intuitive Defensive® Shooting Fundamentals Course, in Advanced Pistol Handling students will be forced to deal with a variety of malfunctions in a way that is congruent with the conditions of an dynamic critical incident.
The APH course is an intense physically and mentally challenging course that will take any students confidence and ability to defend themselves with a gun to a higher level.
What do I need to bring?
- Defensive Pistol
- Backup gun (optional)
- 3 double stack or 5 single stack magazines
- Strong side hip or appendix holster w/belt (quality kydex, or a similar type where the top of the holster remains open - in waistband is acceptable.)
- Students will fire between 500-600 rounds of ammunition per day.
- Eye and ear protection
- Weather appropriate clothing
- Gear that can withstand rigorous use. We will be spending a lot of time coming out of, and going back to, the holster.
(We can provide ammunition through our FFL with some notice at fair market value.)
