Additional Notes

*** Please note the following critical information regarding Protective Pistol Skills (PPS):
PPS (Module II) is an advanced program, it is NOT a “how to shoot course.” All students must have a solid base of combative level handgun skills upon arrival.

These skills include but are not limited to:
1. Presenting the firearm safely from concealment
2. Engage multiple areas on the body to include headshots from intermediate distances
3. Accurately shoot one-handed
4. Operate on a fluid/dynamic range
5. Safely operate in close proximity to others

Those who arrive without the requisite skill level run a high risk of removal from training for cause and a higher level of failing to pass the live fire skills test. Pace of the program will be subjective, based upon PFC protocols and group aptitude. Students must maintain a safe pace with their peers.
It is critical that students bring ALL items of prescribed equipment to the program. This includes concealment holster (trigger finger actuated/SERPAs are forbidden), concealment garment(s), support equipment, quality ammunition, etc.

Numerous students in the past have found themselves in the unenviable position of prematurely registering for PPS when they truly need a foundational course in progressive handgun. PFC retains final judgment on ALL training and safety matters.
