VoM Close Concealment Pistol will bring you the outstanding combo of the Violence of Mind Counter Ambush and Criminal Mindset work with the practical skills and techniques of concealment pistol with Varg. This course is designed for everyone regardless of experience level, to build a solid foundation for a strong fighting mindset, a core understanding of who you may fight, and the practical skill sets to win fights against professional bad guys.

The Violence of Mind approach to concealment pistol for defensive work will cover both the mindset of concealment work and the practical shooting skills needed for that mission. Learn why concealment encompasses not just hiding a pistol, but the effective concealment of intentions, capabilities and tools as a whole, and why this is critical not only for you but more importantly for your enemy. The range work from this course will be from concealment and will be held to a high accuracy standard.

Multiple qualifications will be shot and scored. The shooter will leave this course with a new perspective on concealment and will have no illusions about their own capabilities. An emphasis on how to train yourself going forward will be covered, as well as an introduction into the importance of fitness, combatives and footwork. This is a practical gunfighting class.

1 Day, 8AM to 6PM (1 hour lunch)
$150 per student (plus $25 range fee payable to the range)

Requirements:
Open Enrollment for Active duty or current concealed carry license
Suitable duty grade pistol, belt and concealment holster (dress for daily life)

(note: if you require 1000 round noise making classes to be happy, this is not the course for you. The course curriculum will be scaled to the class level to convey concepts and skills of successfully fighting in lethal force.)
