    This is a  Level II Class offered to qualified adults age 18 & older who aspire to learn proven methods and techniques of self defense with a center-fire handgun. 
 These concepts would be utilized in defending your self against deadly force attack within your home, place of business, or (if you are licensed for concealed carry) 
 out in the public arena.   The procedures taught require a serious and dedicated resolve to learn the lessons, practice the techniques, and consider the results of 
 repelling a deadly assault.  By the end of class each student will have participated in practice drills exercising the skills taught and providing useful ways to enhance their 
 ability.   Those students can then utilize their future range time for valuable practice.   A minimum level of competence (safe and accurate operation) is required to be 
 included in this class.   That means completion of a ProTEQ Level I Class or successful demonstration on the Range in front of a ProTEQ Master Instructor.   We prefer 
 that all students in this class have at least "applied" for a handgun carry permit within their Resident State.   This defensive pistol class is limited to a small number of
 students on a first come first serve basis.   You must preregister and pay in advance to be included.   This 4 hour class costs $100.00 per student.   Students will be 
 required to supply their own handgun and 200 rounds of ammunition.   Minimum caliber should be 9MM.   Revolvers are strongly discouraged for this class unless 
 the shooter can demonstrate (in advance) sufficient hand size and strength to withstand the stress of firing several hundred revolver rounds in a short time period.  
 A strong side, fixed shape, belt holster is required.  A top quality fixed shaped IWB holster (Example - Crossbreed) will be accepted if it allows easy one handed re-holstering.    No cross draw, small of the back, shoulder, ankle, or SOFT sided IWB (inside the waistband) holsters are allowed because of safety concerns.
