Advanced Firearms Skills

Download Training Announcement

This training is conducted for anyone who ALREADY holds a conceal carry permit from any state. This hands-on workshop will require active participation in all group exercises and activities through guided discovery, building sub-skills and developing core skills to increase performance during all stages of handgun protection inside and out of the holster. This hands-on workshop will address several topics that are never covered in any basic or advanced conceal carry handgun training or certification.

This Advanced Firearms Workshop was developed to ensure anyone who is in possession of a conceal carry permit is trained and certified as a “Responsible Firearms Owner”, (RFO), to safely handle and operate the firearm they are carrying.  This course is designed to enhance the basics of marksmanship not covered when receiving a conceal carry permit.  This is NOT A Marksmanship COURSE. 

We understand environments, settings and situations change and in these changes, decisions need to be made that could save your life. Dynamic movement while drawing is a critical part of survival in any firearm encounter and we will address strong and support hand positioning when operating a firearm with one hand, single palm contact, 1-hand grip, unorthodox stances, vision impairment exercises, trigger discipline, clearing clothing and drawing options, threat assessments and engagement strategies.

To include, but not limited to, preparing for court articulation strategies when explaining the application of using deadly force, and immediate self-aid for treating gunshots wounds. This course was developed by field proven tactics and is designed to save your life!

Hosted at the Genesis Group Training Center in Wauwatosa, where we will address firearm handling tactics for loading and unloading, clearing malfunctions, drawing skills to increase accuracy for first round on target and engagement strategies for single and multiple threats. How to beat the draw and manipulate your firearm-trigger-sights in close and confined spaces. You will be taught drawing exercises, hand/eye coordination drills and addressing the obligation of being a responsible firearm owner and how to incorporate all of this in live fire exercises.


Clothing suitable for firearms training, carried firearm (No rifles or shotguns) with 200 rounds of ammunition, safety gear consisting of ear and eye protection, closed toe footwear (no sandals allowed), baseball cap, firearm with a minimum of 3 magazines and if using a revolver 3 speed loaders or speed strips, body armor will be provided.

Change of clothes and knee/elbow pads recommended
