CLOSE QUARTERS BATTLE PISTOL
The CQB Pistol course provides a dynamic
and proactive training regimen for officers who wish to push their handgun
skills beyond the basic or intermediate levels. Given the current environment in
which most officers operate, being able to respond effectively to “active
shooters” requires higher levels of proficiency with service handguns.
While this course will begin by reviewing
fundamental skills, it will quickly progress to highly advanced levels whereby
tactical movement, assessment and hostile target engagement are made in a quick
and decisive fashion, in both individual and team contexts.
Curriculum will include;
low pressure format to encourage student experimentation and facilitate
learning new techniques.
Decisive engagement of
anatomically correct targets, with disciplined and effective shot placement.
Situational ready positions.
