3T’s 2-Day Pistol Gunfighter course is not about shooting – it’s about learning how to fight for your life with a pistol. Whether law enforcement, military, or armed civilian, our Pistol course will enhance your skills when utilizing the pistol in a deadly force encounter.
2-Day Pistol Gunfighter is a 20-hour, 2-day course that strongly focuses upon perfecting the fundamentals of pistol marksmanship and perfecting weapon manipulations. Students will continually be pushed to be as fast as possible while always maintaining a 100% accuracy standard.
While we would prefer that everyone use a pistol during this class, revolvers are certainly permitted without issue. Regardless of the handgun you bring to the class, we’ll teach you how to better fight with it.
