ScotShot LLC - USCCA Basic Defensive Pistol.
This is a USCCA accredited and certificated course.

This course is designed to introduce new and beginner shooters to handguns as defensive tools. It is suitable for those new to handguns, or to experienced handgun owners who wish to develop their handgun skills in a defensive direction. It covers semi-automatic pistols and modern revolvers. It may be taken by children aged at least 12 years.

The course begins with a safety review, and a description of handgun actions and functions. It continues with a brief review of ammunition function and selection. We next consider defensive shooting fundamentals, including defensive accuracy, how to hold the firearm, how to present the firearm and key elements to build consistent shooting, such as aiming and trigger control.

We continue with classroom practical exercises in firearm handling, including loading, presentation, stance and aiming. We then extend these to the firing range where you will fire a selection of semi-automatic pistols and revolvers. If you bring your own firearms, we will work with those, too.

We return to the classroom and review our range work, then explore various options for skill development such as dry-firing and range drills. We also address accessories including holsters, flashlights and lasers, and end with a discussion of safe storage options. The class will conclude with a review and question/answer session, with suggestions for future development.

This is a beginner-level course, designed specifically for people who may never have handled a firearm before. It can be taken by adults and supervised older children (age 12 or over). You should bring note-taking material, and a light lunch. Most importantly, you should bring a positive, safety-orientated attitude, and a willingness to learn about handguns as defensive tools. We encourage you to bring your own handguns, as well as 50 rounds of store-bought, factory-loaded, ammunition.

We provide all training materials, the detailed USCCA "Basic Pistol Fundamentals" manual, classroom and firing range facilities, and coffee and snacks. You will take away a great experience, and a clear understanding of how to begin shooting handguns from a defensive point of view. You'll understand how to begin developing those skills, too. A USCCA certificate of completion is issued.
