PRE-REQUISITES:

Although not required, we highly recommend taking our YSINTG! (You Suck! It’s Not the Gun!®) course PRIOR to this classs. All students should be able to shoot the YSINTG target at 10 yards, zero time limit, firing 10 rounds, with the goal of keeping all rounds in the center of the black dot. To make sure students get the most out of time training with MDFI, students that cannot keep all 10 rounds on the target at the prescribed distance should take YSINTG! first.

Valid CPL or Law Enforcement Credentials (if you do not have either, email us for instructions).

Must have working operational knowledge of the firearm you bring to class (i.e know how to load/unload safely).

MUST KNOW, UNDERSTAND AND APPLY THE FOUR LIFE RULES OF RESPONSIBLE FIREARMS HANDLING AT ALL TIMES. See video below.

MDFI students receive 5% off at Fenix Ammo.
Promo code in email confirmation after registration.

DESCRIPTION:

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 rules of responsible firearms handling, and are looking to learn to use the handgun as a defensive tool.

TOPICS COVERED:

  • In-depth Firearms Responsibility (safety) and Medical Briefing
  • Inspection and Inventory
  • Concealment Issues
  • Carry/Draw Techniques
  • Shooting Techniques
  • The Threat Engagement Process
  • Handgun Manipulation
  • Ammunition Management
  • Stoppage/Malfunction Issues
  • MDFI Foundation Handgun Qualifier

STUDENT REQUIREMENTS:

REQUIRED:

  • Handgun – we highly recommend you train with your carry handgun.
  • 250 – 400 Rounds of Ammunition
  • 3 Magazines – you may want more if you magazine capacity is 10 or less.
  • Quality Holster & Belt – Handgun holsters MUST meet the criteria as outlined in the MDFI gear policies and MUST be used IN CONJUNCTION WITH A BELT (see policies). Failure to bring proper gear to class will result in the student not being able to train with their firearm and forfeit tuition.
  • A way to carry extra magazines (pants pocket is fine, or magazine carrier)
  • Eye + Ear Protection
  • You must bring your CPL (or LE credentials) to class.

This was my first time taking a class without Trek as one of the instructors and i was so impressed by the cadre immediately. They pushed my accuracy standard up and made you feel as if you were having private instruction with 19 of your best friends by the end. You won't be disappointed!

Foundation Handgun should be a required course for anyone looking to become a responsible armed citizen. This course builds off of YSINTG and really helped me become confident with my firearm. We were given plenty of opportunities to fine-tune our skills throughout the various workshops. Tim, Grant, and Thomas were very accommodating to the students, focused strongly on safety as usual, and made the class a very fun and fulfilling experience. This will likely become a repeatable course for me in the future. A fantastic course for those that want to knock the rust off as well. Great class. Can't recommend this course and MDFI enough.

I was very impressed and satisfied with the safety aspect of this course and it’s instructors. Safety was a top priority. The curriculum was very useful and I learned even more skills that I can add to my so called “tool kit”.

 by Donnie on Class: Foundation Handgun

Great class for those who have taken their CPL but never pressure tested the equipment they carry. Lots of information is transferred in a short time but in a way that makes it easy to absorb.

 by Scott on Class: Foundation Handgun

The class was awesome! The information is great and practical. I am more confident in my ability after this class. The staff is caring and spends the time you need individually to make sure you get the most out of the class. I would recommend this to both novice and experienced shooter a like.
