St Joseph County Conservation Club

Fortress will be offering our standard 20-Hour Level I Handgun Course w/night shoot at the St Joseph County Conservation & Sportsman’s Club, July 31st-August 1st, 2021.

This class will run simultaneously with our Women’s Level I Course at the same facility, allowing couples and families to train the same weekend while offering a choice of pace, instructor, and environment.

Ages 18, and up.

500-rounds of pistol ammunition required. (We understand the ammunition availability issues and have reduced our round count by 100 this year. But, no matter what, we still have to shoot to learn these skills. If you’re serious, you’ll be able to locate ammunition. We’d suggest a good place to start is Super Vel. They are producing training ammo in 9mm, 45ACP, and .223 – If you join their email list they will alert you when it is about to be released for sale.)

Cost is $385 (Includes $10 range fee.)

Question: What sets you class apart from the others?

Answer: We immerse you in information and techniques that actually apply to your life. We give you what you need and nothing you don’t! You learn how to live with your gun, in every sense of the word. From loading, unloading, and chamber check, to carry methods and using public restrooms while armed. We teach you not only how to win the fight, but how to avoid it in the first place. We take you from the moment you holster your gun at the start of your day, to interacting with police and the legal aftermath of a lethal force encounter.
