Basic Pratical Handgun Skills
November 26 - Range 82 Midland, VA
Once you have attended Handgun Orientation (Handgun 101) and know how to safely handle your pistol or revolver, it's time to learn how to shoot it. Utilizing the SIG Principles of Handgun Training, we take you through the efficient use of a handgun. Working from the holster, performing reloads, clearing stoppages, and correctly manipulating a trigger to maximize accuracy are all thoroughly taught in a relaxed hands-on environment. Whether learning for self-defense, sport or competition, or if you just need a quick "tune-up", this 1 day course is for you.
New - Bullets and Bandages
Will you know how to react after gunfire? In critical injury situations, most don't know what they don't know until it's too late. This 3-day course focuses on basic, lifesaving emergency medical skills blended with weapons manipulation in live-fire, high risk scenarios. Students are expected to utilize their equipment and knowledge while under stress to "save" critically injured team members in real-life scenarios. This course is suitable for armed professionals and responsible citizens.

Personal Protection Workshop with Steve Tarani
Greater than ninety-eight percent of all personal protection issues can be mitigated and in most cases completely resolved proactively by utilizing real-world professional protection skills. Most threat engagements can be easily handled long before they escalate to a physical altercation. This one-day indoor workshop provides the unique opportunity to gain these critical skills.
Don't bet your life on training that's 'good enough', come to SIG SAUER Academy and get the best.
A brief lapse of attention can alter the course of your life or someone else's life in an instant. That's why it's imperative that we carry a first-aid kit anytime we are out on the shooting range.
Here are a few helpful tips on how to set yourself up for success.
1) Obtain the training necessary to successfully deploy and utilize the med kit on both yourself and someone else. Know your kit and how to use it before you NEED to!
2) Get a med kit that is simple to use in a stressful situation, yet yields maximum benefit. It needs to be lightweight, compact, durable and easily accessed.
3) Keep a tourniquet (preferably two) readily available and ensure that you and your shooting partners know how to use them.
4) Practice, practice, practice! Deploy the tourniquet with both dominant and non-dominant hands and apply it to yourself and others. Want to learn more? Contact us and get the information on our "Bullets and Bandages" course.
