Our Level 2 Defensive Handgun Course (L2DH) is for people who have already had our Level 1 Defensive Handgun (L1DH) course.
It is designed for citizen warriors who want to increase their skill level and become more comfortable with concealed carry.
L2DH begins with a brief refresher on the Universal Rules and safe gun handling. We then build off the knowledge from the L1DH class and talk about what one might expect during the weeks and months after a lethal encounter.
Knowing what kind of threat you might be facing is critical. This course includes block of instruction on recognizing what kind of threat you might be facing and how those threats might be best handled.
As we emphasized in our L1DH, White Horse Nation, LLC sincerely believes that teaching people how to avoid a gunfight is every bit as important as preparing them how to win a gun fight that they cannot avoid. We’ll discuss ways to avoid conflict and introduce students to conflict de-escalation skills that may prevent a life changing lethal encounter.
During the course of fire shooters will learn and practice drawing their gun from concealed carry, reloading and malfunction drills with both the strong and support hands and close quarters, one handed shooting.
Most shootings occur in low light environments. To prepare our students for the reality of a lethal encounter, the L2DH course of fire includes instruction and live fire in low light conditions. CLASS PARTICIPANTS WILL NEED TO BRING A SMALL TACTICAL FLASHLIGHT FOR THIS PART OF THE CLASS.
Police departments make officers qualify with their handgun because they know that officers involved in shootings will be questioned regarding their proficiency. It’s no different for civilians. For that reason, we wrap up the L2DH course of fire with a police style qualification course that will be scored. Please note that this qualification course challenging and it is expected that not everyone will obtain a passing score. If time allows, shooters may be given one additional attempt to qualify.
