Zeigler Defense Systems
This course is Step 2 of 3 in our foundational handgun series. We strongly recommend Handgun 101 or equivalent before you attend Handgun 102. The student MUST know and be able to demonstrate how to safely load, fire, and unload a handgun as well as have demonstrated competence in working from a holster and performing reloads.
Students failing to meet and maintain our safety requirements and/or who cannot meet and immediately demonstrate the minimum skills required for the specific class may be removed from training. Please ensure you have read through the class description and fully understand our prerequisites before registering.
How Do I know When I’m Ready?
If you have not trained with me I recommend starting in an Handgun 101 class or contact me with previous, vetted training history. After taking Handgun 101 talk to me directly to see if it’s time to move on.
If you positively absolutely must be in an advanced course without taking Handgun 101course first, understand that you will not be coddled or tolerated if you are deemed dangerous to yourself or others. Fact, I will not slow down our instruction or hold back those who worked to earn their place in class because you can’t keep up. You will be asked to leave and give the option to be recycled in an Handgun 101 Course.
