May 11, 2013 - Tactical Pistol I

Tactical Pistol I (TPI) is 3T’s 1 day tactical pistol course and is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of fighting for their life with a pistol.  Whether you are law enforcement, military, or armed civilian, TPI will strengthen your understanding of utilizing a pistol in a lethal force encounter.  Students can wear a police type duty belt and holster or plainclothes / concealed carry attire for this course. 

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 shoot it better and increase your handgun skills.

TPI is a 10 hour course that concludes with a low light exercise.  If your pistol has a rail for a weapon mounted light, we very, very strongly recommend you have a weapon mounted white light.  Weapon mounted light and hand held light techniques will be taught during TPI.

  5. A duty holster if law enforcement / military, or a good, quality kydex (plastic) holster if attending in plainclothes / civilian attire.  Leather and nylon holsters are not permitted.  All holsters will be worn on the shooters strong side hip - no exceptions.
