IMPORTANT: Training Program Information
At Marc-On Shooting, we offer an Intermediate Pistol Level-2 course. This class is taught by highly qualified instructors that have had years of training and are proficient in the instruction and handling of handguns in defensive situations.
This course advances the knowledge of students by building on the information each student obtained from the Basic Pistol Course- Level 1 and the Step clinics. This course incorporates the education needed to properly achieve specific actions and results with a handgun, such as: firing from a covered area, successful holster draws, engaging multiple targets, and much more.
This course requires a strong-side (right side holster for right-handed shooters) OWB (out of the waistband) holster, magazine pouch, and 100-200 rounds of brass-cased ammunition (available at the range for purchase). Bring your own firearm and magazines to this course or you can rent one of ours, we have numerous to choose from. The rental cost will be approximately $30 for the firearm.
This course is to advance the knowledge and abilities of each shooter with their personal firearm and will require repetitive actions in and out of the holster, as well as firing at specified targets. It would be encouraged for each shooter to have in their possession a firearm they are comfortable operating, to build up proficiency and experience with the same firearm they intend to carry or practice with. We are always available for firearm consultation and recommendations, to guide you in the proper direction that benefits you the most. Class sizes are limited to 5 so sign up early! Walk-in seats not guaranteed.
