Texas Tactical Training Institute is proud to host GCS Training Group on May 18th&19th, 2019 for their Contact Threat Mitigation/Fighting Pistol Course
This unique course will combine elements of GCS Training Group’s Contact Threat Mitigation Course as well as their Fighting Pistol Course.
Though it’s important to practice at farther distances, FBI statistics show most gunfights occur at much closer distances. Approximately 90% of gunfights occur within 15 feet and approximately 40% of those were in contact at just 3 feet. This course focuses on quickly clearing your holster and effectively delivering combat effective hits using alternate sighting methods and getting off the line of attack at these close distances.
In addition to Contact Threat Mitigation, Day 2 of this course will cover “Fighting Pistol”. This course will push the student in problem-solving with their handgun. It brings home the importance of one-handed pistol manipulation utilizing strong side and support side while engaging single and multiple targets. The student will leave the course with an understanding of gear placement and what works in unconventional shooting situations. Also, on Day 2 students will be exposed to various Force on Force training scenarios to practice and apply the tactics and techniques learned over the last two days in a more dynamic setting.
