Picking up where Level I leaves off, Level II builds upon the basics with specific attention paid towards operating our pistols under more adverse situations.

One-handed shooting is stressed, as well as transitioning to secondary/back-up guns.

We attempt to provide a Fortress staff member for every 2-3 students to provide the most personal instruction experience possible. If requested, a female instructor will be available to assist any female students.

  • Equipment required: Functional handgun, .380 caliber or larger. At least 3 magazines or speedloaders per gun. Proper holsters and magazine or speedloader carriers.
