First Steps + Defensive Handgun ™
This First Steps+ Defensive Handgun™ course was created in response to the need for a firearm training program for both men and women who are new purchasers and shooters, as well as those wishing to upgrade their knowledge and confidence levels for concealed carry, and home defense. This DFI Course extends far beyond the standard First Steps course. Our course includes firearms and self defense, the use of deadly force, concealed carry, firearms and the law, dealing wth law enforcement in the aftermath of an encounter, interstate reciprocity, encounter dynamics, and much more. This is the course that everyone who owns, or is about to purchase a handgun for self defense should take. Firearm ownership is not required.
