- Step II - Defensive Pistol
March 20, 2022
8:00 am - 1:00 pm
The STEP II- NFI DEFENSIVE PISTOL COURSE is designed for students who desire to continue their training and employ the personal protection handgun from an outside/inside the waistband hip holster. The drills are a natural progression from what was learned in the NFI Basic CCW Course. The 5 hour course is designed to be safe yet challenging, focusing specifically on drawing your firearm from a hip holster both effectively and efficiently.
**This class can be used for a CCW Renewal if you stay after the Step II class and take 2 hours of law. If you are using this for a CCW Renewal, purchase the CCW Renewal ticket when registering**
