This one day course is designed to develop the skills of those who wish to learn how to use a pistol as a primary firearm in a tactical environment.

Pistol shooting is an art on its own. It takes time and effort to be able to engage targets out to 50M using the correct techniques with both your strong and weak arm. One handed pistol work while protecting your principle, will be essential and has to be practiced. You will practice these skills and this will reduce your reaction time, allow you to shoot faster with a higher degree of accuracy and increase your confidence with your weapon.

All live firing in the UK is carried out under UK Firearms regulations. STS can arrange to take clients to Europe for a number of days. The participants will have sole occupancy of a range to undertake this course with an array of pistols and a dedicated instructor accompanying you for the whole duration on request.
