Tactical Movements & Close Quarter Shooting                     

Pistol-II(A): CQT - Close Quarter Technique & Tactical Movements is the first of TAC-1's Intermediate tactical handgun module.  This 8 hour class focuses on developing precise gun-handling/manipulation skills, extensive one-handed marksmanship, malfunction clearing and survival techniques and various movements will be covered.

This class also will evaluate the precise bio-mechanics needed to shoot accurately on the move. Ideally a shooter should shoot from the most stable position available. The standing position allows a shooter to be mobile, however, in a deadly force situation the targets will likely be moving, and so will the shooter. Unless adversaries are toe to toe, stationary gunfights are rare. The techniques in this lesson plan will allow a shooter to be mobile and effectively hit the target.

The concept of dominating the weapon, threat, and all visual areas will be emphasized throughout the class.  Students will develop reflexive skills that will enable them to quickly and efficiently engage threats while performing multiple complex tasks.
