Class Description

The goal is to pick up where Fundamentals of Applied Pistols Skills (FAPS) leaves off, and give attendees the technical ability to solve virtually any civilian defensive handgun problem they encounter from 3 yards to 25 yards.
Areas of emphasis include: Increasing draw speed from concealment, improving practical precision and speed, managing reloads and malfunctions, one-handed shooting, use of cover and concealment, and use of alternate firing positions.

Cancelation Policy

The only way we can know that a class is full is when the specified number of students have registered and paid their tuition fees. Once a class is full, we have to turn away others who would like to attend. If you cancel too close to class, or fail to show up for class, you keep someone else from attending and would cost us a student. Please be sure you can attend a class before signing up for it. We believe this policy is fair to you, to other students, and to us. In order to minimize this, we have strict policies on pre-payment and cancellation.

To secure a slot in a course full payment is required (unless otherwise specified). If a deposit is made, the balance will be due 30 days before the course starts. Cancellations by a student inside the thirty day window will be non-refundable but creditable to another Citizens Defense Research class anywhere the student wishes to train, within 18 months of the cancellation. Cancellations by students the week of the course will be non-refundable and will receive no credit. Cancellations by Citizens Defense Research will be fully refunded within 14 calendar days.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
