Dominion's Monday night Defensive Pistol sounds like a great introduction to more formal training:
Keep in mind that Dominion also hosts the Monday evening practical shooting event. They drop the individual bay trays and everything takes place inside the wide-open bay.
Movement, draw & shoot on the move, shooting from positions other than standing square to the target.
You just have to find the way to be there a bit before 7 PM, and be willing to drop anything that might resemble pride as you learn that "slow is smooth and smnooth is fast."
Defensive pistol is quite simply the use of practical equipment to resolve self-defense simulations. Individuals partaking in Defensive Pistol scenarios are required to utilize practical handguns, holsters, and personal defense ammunition. No "Competitive only" equipment is allowed! The ability of the individual and not the equipment is the premise behind this style of shooting.
To promote safe and proficient use of firearms and related equipment for self-defense use.
To provide the individuals with practical and realistic courses of fire.
To offer the individual an opportunity to develop their concentration and shooting skills with the support of like-minded shooters.
Standard stock service pistols, If you would not carry it to defend yourself you can't use it in defensive pistol.
It must be concealable, suitable for continuous wear and worn in the correct manner.
