Course equipment list - to be provided by the student:
- Quality defensive pistol– suitable for self-defense and/or concealed carry. You will be firing approximately 300 rounds of ammunition during this class, so small framed or ultra-lightweight firearms are not a good choice for this class. If you have any questions, please contact us before the course. It is also a good idea to bring a spare gun, if you have one, in case your primary gun breaks.
- A quality retention style holster – You need a strong-side, belt or inside the waistband holster. For safety reasons, cross draw holsters, fanny packs, shoulder holsters, and generic-fitted nylon holsters are not good for this course. For safety reasons, Serpa-style holsters are highly discouraged. Again, if you have questions, please contact us.
- A minimum of 3 magazines or speed loaders for your handgun.
- A magazine pouch/ holder for at least 2 of your spare magazines or speed loaders.
- A sturdy belt, to support the holster, handgun, magazine pouch, and spare magazines.
- Hearing and ear protection.
- Billed cap or other brimmed headwear.
- Minimum of 300 rounds of decent quality, reliable ammunition. Range ammunition (FMJ, etc.) is fine.
- Jacket or vest to be used for drawing from concealment
- Clothing suitable for the weather and the range. If necessary, we will finish our range work in whatever conditions exist at class time, live-fire exercises will run rain or shine.
- Note taking materials. You will need to take LOTS of notes. We will explain why during class. If you wish to use a laptop computer, that is OK. No audio/video recording is allowed.
- Food for meals each day.
Please note: the above list is just the essentials. You may bring additional items (such as range bags, extra magazines, additional ammunition, etc.), if you choose.
