The Smith & Wesson Academy is very excited about this new course. This is not the same old pistol course altered to try and work with back up guns from a concealed position. This course was built from the ankle up to support the trainers and the officers in the use of the backup gun. Back up guns can be anything from a firearm carried in a pocket holster, ankle holster, belly band, vest, and/or any other non-belt holster carry method. We will cover unconventional carry and proper techniques to support deep cover, undercover operations and personnel in plain clothes for duty requirements. We will cover both overt and covert draws from the holster, i.e. Ankle, Pocket, or Vest. Some of the objectives of this course are to: train from concealment; train proper reloading techniques and procedures; recognize the effective range of your gun; utilize cover and concealment with your backup gun; and much more.
Students are encouraged to bring their own issued firearm, back up gun, and duty gear. Please come to this class wearing the clothes you would wear while carrying your back up gun to compliment real world duties.
Ammunition is included in the tuition fee.
Course Length: 3 days – Approximate class time 8:00AM – 4:30 PM
