Urban Pistol Skill

Instructor:  Steve Moses

You will register for this course on the Palisade Training Group website, but some classes are scheduled at the Armed Texans Training Facility east of Mineola.

This class is expressly designed to better prepare students to deal with potential or actual physical contact with persons whose intentions may range from suspect to overtly lethal in transitional areas such as parking lots, sidewalks, parking garages, and the exteriors of malls, large shopping areas and the like, where Violent Crime Actors tend to ply their trade.  Violent criminal assaults, whether armed or unarmed, tend to take place at extremely close range, and typically involve the use of ruse or ambush by the attackers in order to close distances and carry out an assault.  The nature of these attacks often leaves the intended victim with very little time to process information, and even less time to respond appropriately.

The Objectives of the instruction is to better educate the student on how to deal with these situations by learning additional skills designed:

  • to avoid contact,

  • deter contact,

  • disengage from contact,

  • when no other options remain, to more effectively respond to a deadly force threat by virtue of a reliable presentation of a handgun from a holster concealed under a real-world garment,

  • enhance ability to handle and manipulate a handgun in a high stress situation,

  • achieve better hits at a higher rate of speed.

This is not a high round shooting class, but a fighting class designed for lawfully carrying men and women who, as a last resort, wish to defend themselves and their loved ones more effectively with the handgun they have on their person.
