Tactical Sidearm Home Defense:


Will be available to everyone who has a current State concealed firearms license or shows proof of certification issued by the NRA on safety and sidearm shooting. Tactical level one’s primary objective is to increase knowledge and skills on safety, trigger control / reset, instinctual body alignment targeting”, and misfire reaction; with emphasis on home invasion defense scenarios and general personal/ family defense tactics inside and outside of the home. The program deals with live 300 rounds on the range and a single magazine holding 15 pellets in the house utilizing an air-soft.


Below is a photo showing the Glock air-soft blowback with a Glock 19 9mm. The air-soft looks, feels and operates just like the

Glock 19.



A single magazine with full capacity is used for training in the shoot house because during an invasion, people grab their sidearm without grabbing additional magazines. This is based on a person feeling violated with safety concerns for their loved one including themselves.
