Pistolcraft: Austere Conditions (3 Days)

$ 900.00

Starting in 2023, Pistolcraft: Austere Conditions will begin a three-day set of modules with  some of the most realistic training you can get.  After you complete this class, your mental conditioning for defending yourself and your loved ones will be one step ahead when the time comes.  If you have not been in a physical fight before this class, you will by the end of this class.  The only pre-requisite for this class is an ego-free attitude.  

We recommend that you take this class with everyday carry in mind.  This means a concealable holster (appendix or hip) if concealed carry is your primary role or open carry on duty belt/holster if LE or military.
