The purpose of 2-Gun Tactical is skills development, not competition. The focus of 2-Gun Tactical will be the introduction, development, and practice of rifle and pistol skills that would be applicable in self-defense situations.
Each event wil start with a discussion of the skills and techniques that will be explored that day, followed by dry fire and individual skills based breakdown sessions. Each event will culminate with the application of the days work being applied to potential real-world scenarios.
Participants in 2-Gun tactical events must successfully complete an introductory course that will ensure that the participants have the background, vocabulary, and pre-requisite skills to safely engage in the more advanced topics that will be introduced as the program evolves. The 2-Gun Tactical Introductory course will only be offered every-other month during the shooting season.
