Foundation Handgun

Class Cost

$200
Includes:
  • Full Day Class Tuition
  • Range Fee

Class Flow: MODERATE (students can expect full day of shooting and weapon manipulation from a static line)

Foundation Handgun is designed to stress the importance of proper weapon manipulation and shooting techniques. The goal of this MDFI Foundation class is to build a strong and efficient foundation regarding the proper use and manipulation of the Handgun as a defensive tool. Without a strong foundation, any additional training is wasted time. This class will prepare students for our "Advanced" level classes and is a mandatory prerequisite to move on with the MDFI curriculum.

This class is for students who understand the fundamentals of marksmanship, live by the four-life safety rules of firearms handling, and are looking to learn to use the handgun as a defensive tool.

Law Enforcement: This course is MCOLES certified through MDFI and counts toward training credit.

Even though this was a foundation class, I felt challenged a little. I walked away from class feeling I could have done this or that better or I need to work on a procedure I learned in class ...so I know I was challenged. I constantly heard the teachers working the student line assisting, reassuring, and positively affirming good techniques. When students got a little distressed, the teachers recognized it and worked to get the student back into a learning zone.

I plan to return for another class this year.
