Defensive Shooting Fundamentals – Level 1

September 25, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


If you find yourself in a situation where you must defend yourself or your loved ones, be prepared and ready to act. Master the skills needed to prepare and prevail even under the most dangerous of circumstances using intuitive defensive shooting.

In this course, you’ll build the lifesaving foundation skills and thought-processes that you’ll need to understand and apply intuitive defensive shooting and deadly force decision-making. You’ll also begin to train your mind and body to react instinctively, harnessing your natural reactions to respond quickly, decisively, and effectively to a potential threat.

Developed by renowned instructor, author and consultant Rob Pincus of I.C.E. Training, this comprehensive USCCA course provides the opportunity to train in an efficient, realistic, and practical manner for a dynamic critical incident.


After registering for the course with us, you must call the USCCA at 1-877-577-4800 and purchase the Defensive Shooting Fundamentals Student e-learning module for this course. It also includes a book for the course. The cost is $30 on top of the course fee. The e-learning MUST be purchased and completed prior to the course date. You will not be able to attend the course if the e-learning is not completed. It will take several hours of online work to complete the e-learning, so be prepared to have it completed in advance. The information is outstanding but do not wait until the day before. We will check in with you 1 week prior to class to make sure it is completed.


What is required:

This class is an all-day range course with live fire. It is meant to push and develop skills that are fundamental to intuitive defensive shooting within the context of a defensive shooting scenario. It is challenging but accepts all skill levels. In addition to the e-learning requirement above, the following will be required for this course.

  • Semi-automatic handgun that you carry or plan on carrying. If you use a revolver, please contact us before registering so we can understand your skill level with a revolver. Single-action revolvers are not permitted.
  • 400 rounds of ammunition
  • At least 3 magazines
  • Hard holster for your firearm. This can be kydex, or other hard plastic. A rigid leather holster is also acceptable. Nylon or other soft holsters are not permitted. Outside the waistband is preferred for this class but appendix and other inside the waistband holsters are acceptable. We will make some adjustments to an IWB holster for the class. You will be drawing from a holster, so it must be a holster that allows for this. Drop-leg holsters are not recommended unless that is how you always carry your firearm.
  • Mag holder that holds 2 magazines on your waistband.
  • Rigid belt
  • Eye protection
  • Ear protection – we require electronic ear protection at our range. If you do not have any you can purchase at our store or rent from us for $3.
  • Closed-toe shoes
  • Notebook and pen/pencil
