St Joseph County Conservation Club

Fortress is offering our only 2023 Level II Handgun in the Midwest, October 21/22, in Sturgis, Michigan.

This is the class that puts students and their equipment to the test. You will run one-handed shooting, re-loading, and stoppage reduction drills, both strong side and support side.  Use of cover is heavily emphasized. Shooting while injured, dealing with bystanders, transition to secondary pistols, and an extremely challenging night shoot are all part of the fun!


   Yes – you’ll even shoot your pistol using your pinky to run the trigger.


Ages 18, and up.

Cost $425 per student.
