Protective Shooting Dynamics

For the Executive Protection Professional

Course Overview:

The Protective Shooting Dynamics course for the Executive Protection Professional will consist of managing unknown contacts, effectively shooting one handed, and defending against physical assault. It will consist of 16 hours of training divided into two days.  During the training both appendix and strong-side hip carry of a pistol will be covered.

Students will focus heavily on one-handed pistol access while managing physical confrontation, requiring semi-aerobic activity and a competitive mindset.  Shot timers will not be used. All shooting will take place within 25 yards.  Scenario role play and physical contact with fellow students will validate all techniques learned in class.


Each morning will consist of live-fire training on the range with at least 400 single-hand draws and re-holstering from concealment.  Live-fire training will focus on the 10 Fundamentals of Concealed Carry using a 4-count draw stroke.  Shooting drills will be performed from irregular positions in and around urban areas, as well as in situations where the student is accompanied by third parties. 
After lunch, class will transition to Managing Unknown Contacts, then vertical Greco style grappling.  Each Afternoon will end by using everything learned in Force-on-Force scenario training.  The Force-on-Force equipment used in class is designed to protect the students while allowing them to experience realistic defensive situations safely.
