The JTF@BFG’s Pistol Skills and Techniques class is a 10 hour block focused on the Combat Quadrangle of Mindset, Manipulations, Marksmanship, and Tactics. This class will breach the first three as they pertain to the fighting pistol when employed as a secondary weapon system. Mindset, Manipulations and Marksmanship will be brought to the forefront as key components in a manner that common flat range style training historically lacks. This course starts from the point of view that your “big gun” has failed you and it’s time to pull the ripcord on that reserve parachute you (should) have on your hip and save yourself or others. Rifle transitions to pistol, as well as feeding and fixing the pistol, and of course applied combat marksmanship are focus points of this course.
