This 8 hour Live Fire course, Brilliant Handgun 1, is a practical skills building course designed for the novice personal defense shooter who has limited practical experience with a semi-automatic pistol, or revolver, but that is committed to significant improvement. This course focuses on the fundamentals of shooting and defending safely, weapons handling, and establishes the foundations for our Tier 1 Citizen & Dynamic Protector Marksmanship and Active Threat Mitigation training core. The student will learn techniques and acquire skills that will build the speed and accuracy required for the effective defense of the home, as well the urban, and the private unsecured institutional, target-rich, & scarcely-defended soft tactical environments.
As the focus is on establishing brilliant fundamental handgun skills, Brilliant Handgun 1 is taught at a much slower pace than our Dynamic Handgun 2 course, so if you're new-ish to firearms training, then this is your class. In it we lay the foundation of the Dauntless Mindset approach to defensive shooting and treat mitigation. This Dauntless philosophy of Boldness, Bravery, Confidence, Skillfulness, & FEARLESSNESS in the Face of Grave Danger or Treacherous Obstacles,™ is at the core of everything we do and how we train. Specifically, the gun is just a tool, your mind is the weapon; and the Exceptionally Skilled Deployment of that tool can be your salvation.
This class is about your preparation to save life and efficiently mitigate active lethal threats, and not to score points in a competition, or put holes in a paper target at close distance on the static lane in an indoor range. Thus, to ensure that you develop solid fundamentals, the speed and intensity of the class will be adjusted to the average experience level of the participants.
After a refresher consisting of approximately 1 hour of Classroom Instruction on firearm safety, firearm operation, range safety, and the cognitive aspects of marksmanship, the class will transition to the live range where the range portion of the course will begin with an initial skills evaluation, then continuing for 7 hours of Brilliance in the Basics® instruction, consisting of progressively challenging training drills that involve a variety of shooting positions, distances, and situational nuance.
Participating in marksmanship and training drills from distances out to 25 yards (75 feet), malfunction drills, multiple targets, target transitions, and shooting from retention, you will learn to protect the gun in, and deploy it from, the holster, and you will quickly gain experience, confidence and competence with the pistol, increasing your skill level significantly.
We will end the day's training with a final evaluation to let you know what improvement you have made.
