Defensive Revolver

22aprAll DayDefensive Revolver(All Day: thursday) InstructorTom Givens

Event Details

Some people simply prefer a wheelgun. For others the revolver may be mandated by job requirements. If you train others, you need to know how to run a revolver, so you can teach the skills to others. For all these reasons, we offer a one day course in the proper use of the double-action revolver, an art that is rapidly being lost.

This is not a class for the raw beginner. Students should have some prior formal handgun training, so that we can concentrate on the tactical and technical differences in the manual of arms of the revolver. We will cover:

Types and characteristics of the common revolvers

Nomenclature and operation

Loading/Unloading/Reloading Techniques

Efficient shooting techniques

Accessories, including loading devices like speedloaders, speed strips, etc

Specialized holsters (we will have multiple examples to examine)

Students will need about 250-300 rounds of practice type ammunition and a belt holster. Ideally, the student will bring a service revolver, such as a 3” or 4” barrel medium frame revolver and a compact, 2” barrel concealment revolver. We will have some spares on hand, as well.

As in many pursuits, there are some things that you need to know and that will make the use of your revolver much easier and more efficient/effective. That is the purpose of this course.
