QPro Defense’s Competition Pistol Class will cover topics such as handgun red dot considerations, configurations, employment, and concepts; reducing split times, driving the gun from target to target, recoil management, barricades, gear, stage analysis, and USPSA & IDPA classifiers. This class will take your handgun skills to the next level whether you are already competing, military, LEO, or just interested in improving your handgun skills for self-defense. You will need 750 rounds of factory new handgun ammunition, a reliable handgun, all the support gear, and you must either be an established QPro client, possess a Concealed Handgun License or submit to a current background check.

This is NOT a beginners class.
