I'll be presenting DHS-1 at the Warrior Forge Range in Culpeper, VA 30-31 Aug. Cost is $250, and you'll need at least 800 rounds for the weekend.

Course Purpose: The purpose of DHS-1 is to gain an understanding of the defensive shooting environment, develop situational awareness knowledge, hone the fighting mindset, learn weapon manipulation techniques and acquire practical shooting skills.

Course Prerequisites: This class is NOT structured for novices. An NRA course, military experience or some other form of formal instruction is a prerequisite. Must be 21 years old to attend, and complete a training registration and hold harmless form.

This course DOES satisfy the Virginia Concealed Pistol Permit requirements. Maximum of 15 students.

Equipment Requirements: A center fire handgun, 800 rounds of ammunition, wrap-around eye protection, ear protection, a baseball style hat, a concealment garment, 3 spare magazines (the more the better!), a magazine pouch and a QUALITY strong side holster.*
