Close Quarters Handgun, Racine County Line Rifle Club, Aug 29th, 2015

Chuck Haggard with Agile Training and Consulting will be providing a Close Quarters Deployment of Handguns class at the Racine County Line Rifle Club (RCLRC), Racine, WI, on Aug 29th, 2015


This class will cover;

  • Issues with defensive use and deployment of handguns at close and very close ranges
  • Considerations in drawing a handgun at contact and near contact ranges, entangled in-fight weapons access issues, and drawing/firing from non-standard positions
  • Close quarters shooting,
  • Weapon retention and disarming/deflection,
  • Working around bystanders or family members in close quarters and the “down-range” problem,
  • Wound ballistics and “Tactical Anatomy”,
  • Malfunction clearances with one and two hands,.


Student requirements:

A reliable/serviceable handgun; service-sized pistols or revolvers  in .38/9mm/.40S&W/.45ACP, etc., is preferred.  However, smaller concealed carry or back-up guns may be brought to class and their use discussed and worked on.

A quality strong side or appendix carry outside or inside the waistband holster from which the shooter can safely draw and re-holster with one hand.  Soft clip-on or nylon type holsters, or holsters that collapse and disallow reholstering with one hand, or shoulder holsters, are unsuitable for this type of training.
A minimum of 3oo rounds is needed for this class
I can provide dummy ammunition in 9mm, .40S&W and .45ACP for use in some of the drills we will be conducting.  If you have dummy ammunition that you prefer to use, or you are using something besides one of those three calibers, please feel free to bring that with you.

Eye and hearing protection; active type shooting muffs are suggested.

Ball cap or other hat/cap with a bill.

I will be providing dummy handguns for some of the training in this class.  I have several Glock 17/22 sized dummy guns and other types of handguns.  However, if a student has a dummy gun of their own that they use for training then feel free to bring that to class.  When e-mailing me for registration please advise what handgun you will be using for this class so I can try to arrange a specific dummy gun to fit your holster.
Class size is limited to a maximum of 12.  Cost is $125/person.  There is an additional $25 range fee for non-RCLRC members.  50% deposit required.  Cancellations within 14 days may forfeit deposit.  Paypal/Money Order/Personal Check accepted.
