Tactical Handgun

Push your handgun to the limit in this fast paced advanced course – Learn to fight from cover, stress shooting, failure drills, confined space tactics, shoot and reload on the move, and more! 

Paladin Level 2 Course & CCW Required


Paladin Response’s Tactical Handgun course includes 6 hours of live-fire training focused on shooting and reloading on the move, drawing while moving off the X, the intricacies of fighting from cover, stress shooting where we elevate the heart rate to induce fatigue, hostage rescue scenario shots where we fully explore height over bore, and finally confined space tactics utilizing unorthodox gun presentations. 

This course is a great building block for anyone active military, law enforcement, or overseas private security specialists operating in urban areas looking to sharpen their skillset.  

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.
