    Intuitive Defensive Shooting – Handgun
    This course is not designed to make you the best shooter you can be on the range, rather its goal is to help you quickly develop fundamental skills that you can apply in a worst case scenario defensive shooting situation.
    IDS is based on years of constantly evolving information about how the body works and what really happens during Dynamic Critical Incidents and has been heavily influenced by the diverse group of instructors that are certified to teach it and the thousands of students who have been through courses all around the world. The program features a variety of specialty drills and training methods that the student will be able to utilize in
    their own practice after the course in order to continue to develop their abilities. This course is two full days of training, teaching, and practice. You are encouraged to bring a notebook and a pen. The course will cover the following topics:
    • Fundamentals of Defensive Shooting & Intuitive Skill Development
    • Combat Accuracy
    • High Compressed Ready position
    • Lateral Motion – Net Survival Positive
    • Presentation from the Holster (Reactive Vs Proactive)
    • Assessment – Physical & Cognitive Skill
    • The Balance of Speed & Precision
    • Critical Incident Reload
    • Volume of Fire
    • Realistic Training for Multiple Target Engagement
    • Understanding the Body’s Natural Reactions during a Dynamic Critical Incident.

    2021 is the year to get to work.  We have a new administration and while they agree with us on a majority of topics, many are still opposed to the average person owning firearms.  This means it is time for us to get to work talking to our legislators and let them know that the important issue at hand is addressing the root causes of violence, rather than limiting sportspersons and other responsible gun owners. Please join us on Zoom with a panel consisting of our National Spokesperson, Lara Smith, and various other members who are actively working to inform their representatives about the LGC and our mission.  Questions will be answered live. See you there!

    See Lara's blog post about this topic:  https://theliberalgunclub.com/and-now-to-work/

    With the influx of new gun owners in 2020, we decided it is time to return to basics.  On YouTube we have a successful series of videos called "Make it Safe" in which we show you how to make various guns safe to handle, for non-gun owners and gun owners alike.  This week, Scott will show us live, how to make a variety of guns safe for handling and storage.  Please join us for this very important topic!  Whether you are a new gun owner, or a life long gun enthusiast, this topic is an important one to consider, and you might learn a few tricks that you can pass on to other.  Questions will be answered live. See you there!
