Defensive Shooting I

Defensive Shooting I


Responding to an emergency with a firearm is entirely different than shooting at the range. The body doesn't act the same way and the firearm is seldom used the same way. The time to learn this fact is long before the situation arises. In other words owning a gun is not enough to ensure a favorable outcome should you be face to face with a threat.

This course has been developed with the help of Marine Corps Combat Veterans Sean Krecko and Matthew Parente who will be conducting it almost in its entirety. Matt and Sean will be taking the lead and sharing techniques that they have personally fielded in operation Iraqi freedom in the same respectful environment that you have associated with Renaissance Firearms Instruction.

Learn the basics of defensive shooting regardless of the firearm that you have available, as well as how they apply to modern practical shooting competitions such as USPSA , IDPA and 3-Gun.Each drill can be performed with rifle, pistol or shotgun. Students can bring any style firearm to the course as each firearm style will be covered for each drill. This course will extensively cover fast paced shooting as well as efficient reloading in 100% practical lesson. You will  perform drills that will test your reaction time, how your body reacts to stress, how your marksmanship is affected by different scenarios and much more....in other words bring lots of ammo!

This course will also satisfy the Florida State AND Arizona State Concealed Carry Permit Proficiency Requirement if completed with a handgun.

Bringing your own firearm is recommended, however one can be made available to you with ammo, free of charge. Pistol permit holders will be issued a Walther Arms pistol, Non permit holders will be issues a .22lr rifle
