Are you an experienced shooter looking for more in-depth defensive training? Well good news, the first session of the NRA Outdoors Defensive Handgun Academy is this weekend! This two day course provides responsible gun owning citizens with an affordable, life changing defensive handgun experience. 

The course will take place at Peacemaker National Training Center in Gerradstown, West Virginia and will be taught by NRA hand selected law enforcement, competition and/or Peacemaker instructors.

During the course, you'll learn timeless "Defensive Mindset and Defensive Technique" skills essential for avoiding and or prevailing in defensive situations. You will improve your outlook on preparation, awareness, and after incident skills. Additionally, you'll gain proper and relevant handgun techniques surrounding safe drawing/re-holstering, concealed carry draw, grip, stance, sight use, trigger control skills, reloading, and malfunction clearing under stress.

But what is especially unique about this course, is the ability to test your skills with a variety of handguns! That’s right, firearms and test ammunition will be provided (but bring more if you want to try them all!) Check out what guns will be available:
