ScotShot LLC - ScotShot Handgun I - IV ©.

ScotShot Handgun I - IV is a modularized Handgun course designed to take the student from novice to accomplished.

ScotShot Handgun-IV is an Advanced Level course, focused on the safe use of a holster. It is a 7 hr course that has 3 hrs of classroom time and 3 hrs of range time, with an hour for lunch, discussion and range safety briefing. The purpose of Handgun-IV is to extend Handgun-III, and introduce basic, safe and reliable techniques for the safe use of a holster.

This class is suitable for enthusiastic and fluent handgun shooters who own their own firearm, are experienced and comfortable with "running" their handgun, and who want to advance their handgun ability towards a concealed-carry mindset.

In the classroom, we review the core firearms safety rules, and review material from Handgun-III. We review the fundamentals of shooting a handgun, the concepts of concealment and cover, moving while shooting and prioritizing multiple threats. We discuss the "defensive mindset" and how it applies in a violent encounter. We discuss the pros and cons of different hoster types, and different types of carry firearms. We consider where one might carry a concealed firearm, on or off one's body. We study the basic method of drawing a firearm from a hoster and the importance of safe-practice for reholstering. We study this method to address targets that are to the front, left, right and behind. On the range, we introduce and practice these concepts and then use them in the context of concealment, cover and multiple threats. We conclude the range exercises with a study of "shoot/no-shoot" scenarios, and shooting the standard FBI qualification.

Students should bring their own NJ-legal semi-automatic handgun, two magazines and 250 rounds of store-bought, factory-loaded ammunition. Hand-loaded ammunition is specifically prohibited. Preferably you will have taken ScotShot Handgun-II, Handgun-III ©, NRA Basic Pistol, NRA PersonalProtection Inside the Home, or some other intermediate handgun class. You should be fluent and familiar with running your handgun and with loading it and keeping it functioning as required. A magazine-holder will be an additional optional advantage. We expect that you will already have your preferred eye-protection and ear-protection. You should also bring a willingness to learn, a desire to succeed and an open mind. This is not a class for the brand-new shooter or complete novice, it is advanced level and requires strong existing skillsets to gain most benefit. It can be taken by adults and suitably experienced older children.

We provide all training materials, including non-functioning, training ammunition for the classroom. We provide classroom and range facilities, including targets. We also provide coffee, water and assorted snacks, however, you should bring a light lunch. At the end of the course, we issue a Certificate of Training to those who meet the necessary standard of safe attitude and safe gun handling. This can serve as "Proof of Training" for the popular Florida Concealed Weapons Permit application. Most of all, you'll take away some strong ideas for training to improve your shooting in terms of ability and versatility, and a safe working knowledge of how to use a holster with your handgun.

Thank you for choosing ScotShot for your firearms training - see you on the range!
