Indoor Defensive Pistol Class

Indoor Defensive Pistol Class

This Indoor Class Will be held in our McHenry classroom & range. The 8-hour class will begin with 4 hours of classroom time and proceed into the range for another 4 hours of range time. The goal of Condition Yellow Academy’s Indoor Defensive Pistol Course is to provide the student with training in a private range to put defensive pistol skills into action. The range is designed to allow students freedom of movement and the opportunity to learn different shooting positions as well as to acquire advanced pistol handling skills necessary to improve their chances of winning in a gun fight. This course puts the student on a range that allows a very high level of realism and stress to be added to the training.
