Handgun Proficiency 2

Put techniques learned in Handgun Proficiency 1 to the test and assemble the final pieces of your shooters foundation with this comprehensive handgun course!  

Paladin Level 2 Course – HP1 Completion Required


Paladin Response’s Handgun Proficiency 2 course includes 6 hours of live-fire training focused on sharpening your core fundamental marksmanship skills while preparing your for more advanced curriculums in the future like Defensive Handgun and Tactical Handgun where your foundational skills need to be at a “muscle response” level in order to ensure safety and maximum learning potential. 

In this course we will be covering in depth draw stroke, alternate presentations of the gun, one armed shooting, malfunction drills, and much much more! After this course you will be ready to move and shoot because at Paladin we don’t train Willow trees.  

This course is not based on any NRA or USCCA curriculums. You are getting the secret sauce from years of experience operationally training military and private military security specialists working in combat zones including a comprehensive breakdown of the evolutions of grip and stance over the past couple of decades of all disciplines involving shooting from competition to war fighting. We are also constantly researching and evolving our curriculums to reflect the latest training.
