As you well know carrying a concealed weapon is a very serious business and there is no room for mistakes. How proficient should you be when carrying a weapon? That will depend upon how much you would like to decrease your liabilities if you happen to miss your target.
There is currently no way to evaluate your shooting abilities after you receive your CCW permit. No one to hold you accountable until after an incident occurs When firing your weapon under stress your proficiency and skills will be diminished. You alone are responsible for developing these skills and abilities to effectively and efficiently eliminating the threat under stress. The less time you practice, the greater your liabilities will become.
We developed the CCW Pistol Qualification Course with the purpose of allowing the CCW permit holder to test and evaluate their abilities under stress. The shooter will set their own goals where the time constraints are concerned. Speed will increase as proficiency and accuracy increases.
The CCW Pistol Qualification Course is a 50 round course which will challenge the CCW permit holder. The course is developed around self defense and close encounters. The weapon is drawn from a concealed holster where they will normally carry their weapon (no pocket carries). The shooter will fire single handed (each hand), will conduct magazine changes and engage multiple close range targets. In addition to the B-27 silhouette targets, metal plate pie plate targets have been incorporated. There is also a Car Jacking scenario firing from the inside of a vehicle at targets outside the windows to simulate a car jacking. Targets are scored where impacts on the B-27 target are within the eight, nine and ten rings.
The shooter will set his/her own goals on how proficient he/she wants to become. The Course of Fire can be viewed by going to the "Administrative / Forms" tab and click on the button for the "CCW Pistol Qual. COF".
