Butler Tech has retained three well known and experienced firearms and tactical trainers to provide a 20 hour class to enhance your ability to defend yourself. Students will learn the skills to defend themselves at the critical distances where most engagements occur. In addition to learning how to defend themselves, students will learn different shooting positions as well as how to retain their weapon should an assailant grab their firearm. This course does involve physical exertion, stress induced shooting, critical thinking, and split-second decision making.
Butler Tech offers a complete training environment with classrooms, an indoor climate controlled 25 yard, 20 lanes shooting range and the ability to train in hallways and stairwells.
20 hours | Mon-Fri | 6 pm – 10 pm
Upcoming Class: TBD
