Handgun Application for Self-Defense – Ladies Only

June 6th, 2014 | No Comments | Posted in Events

June 7, 2014, El Centro – 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Border Tactical – 925 North Imperial Avenue

Course Objectives: In this class we will cover the proper use of a handgun in a self-defense situation.  We will cover threat incapacitation tactics and techniques to give the student a tactical advantage, even against an armed attacker.  Finally we will cover shooting in low-light and no-light.  The last thing you want to do is hear a bump in the night and then accidently shoot the cat!


Equipment: If you have a handgun, bring it!  If you have a holster for it, bring that too.  If you don’t, come anyway.  We will have handguns for you to use.  All students must bring a sturdy leather or nylon belt.  (No studs, bling or other embellishments on your belt please, we are going to put a holster on it!)  All students will need 100 rounds of ammunition.  (Typically two boxes.)  If you are bringing your own gun, you know what kind of ammo to bring.  If you are using one of ours, we will have the appropriate ammo available for purchase at the range. If you have a small flashlight, (one that fits comfortably in one hand), bring that too.

Dress in comfortable athletic type clothing.  Jeans and t-shirts are fine.  Tennis shoes work best because the floor tends to be slippery.

Cost:  The cost is $40.00 per person.  Cash or checks only please.  Checks should be made out to Bill Smerdon.

For more information or to confirm your spot – email me at or call or text Bill at (760) 554-2333.  If you need me to supply a gun or are looking for ammo please email as soon as possible so I can get you set up.
