Beyond Concealed Carry – Running the Gun is a 4-hour class all about running the gun better. You will be shooting fast, faster, and faster. This class is all about making the gun run. From drawing from the holster to shots faster, you’ll do it better and faster during this class. You’ll also learn how to keep the gun running, malfunctions and reloads.
This course will get you shooting faster then you ever thought. It starts at the draw and then have you shooting fast with a bunch of pro tips to get you going faster.
This is a 4 hour course you can take in an afternoon for some who carries a concealed handgun, learn how to shoot better, or just improve shooting skills. We start with the basics of handgun safety and marksmanship and quickly progress to some basic shooting. Then we speed it up to shoot faster and faster. You’ll get plenty of practice shooting fast and then lots of practice keeping the gun running with reloads and malfunction drills. Bring a quality handgun, holster, belt and magazine pouches and at least 3 magazines for your pistol. Revolvers and .22 caliber pistols are welcome. We suggest you bring what you carry.
The class starts with an in-depth safety brief. Then we will work on presenting the gun to a threat in the best way for concealed carry. The next couple hours will be gun handling skills. You will learn how to reload and clear malfunctions in depth. From there you will be responsible for operating your gun; that means clearing your own malfunctions and reloading your gun on the range. We run a hot range, just like the real world.
From there you learn how to shoot fast, just like in the real world. You will learn to make hits very fast at real-world distances and different techniques to win the fight. You will also learn what executable marksmanship is during a fight, and why some of the things you have learned are probably wrong.
Shooting fast is what we all want to do. You will work through it again and again shooting between 200 to 300 rounds.
This is an intermediate course and qualifies you to get into any advanced courses Modern Self Protection Teaches.

You’ll come away with a new understanding of your skills, more confidence then ever before, and some great new friends.
In this course you’ll learn:
- Firearms Safety in the Real World
- How to Draw a Gun to Defend Yourself
- How to Reload and Run Your Gun during a Fight
- How to Clear Malfunctions without Looking or Thinking
- To Shoot Faster then Before
- Combat Marksman Ship
- And more!
We cram a lot into four hours!
– This class is for you! We start with safety and how to draw the gun. You will get a good understanding on one of the most important skills to learn (the draw). Then we move into how to reload the gun and clear malfunctions under stress. You’ll learn to shoot fast and hit targets. This is one of the first steps to really learning how to fight with a gun. A square range trying to teach yourself just isn’t going to be able to teach you the things you’ll learn in this fun 4-hour class.
– This class is for you! Most will be a review: Safety, Drawing, Reloads, and Malfunction Drills are all something we could always work on. Then you’ll be able to shoot as fast as you can, run the gun as fast as possible, and be encouraged to go faster with tips on how to do it. This 4-hour class will help you clean up your shooting and be more aggressive in competitions and in self defense situations.
What you’ll need to bring for the Class:
- A Serviceable Handgun (We recommend a 9mm or larger but a .380 or .22 will work. Bring what you normally carry)
- An extra gun (if you have one in case your primary breaks: If something breaks we can either fix it or loan you a replacement to finish the course)
- A Proper Belt worn Holster for your specific make/model of pistol. Manufactures like Concealment Solutions, Comp-Tac, Blade Tech, Dale Fricke, Safariland, or 19 Charlie Tactical. NO Blackhawk Serpa Holsters allowed.
- A Belt-Worn ammo pouch from the above makers is also suggested (again start with what you normally wear).
- Long Pants or Shorts with belt loops (jeans, or 511-type tactical pants are suggested)
- A Sturdy belt designed to carry a gun.
- Sturdy Footwear, Hiking Boots, Athletic Shoes, etc… No open-toed anything. You will be on your feet moving all day over dirt and uneven terrain. Please wear shoes you will be able to move around in all day.
- Long Sleeve or sports shirts are recommended. No deep V-Necks or large open necks. Brass flies around and is hot. If it goes down your shirt it will hurt. Athletic clothing please.
- Over shirts or vests for concealed carry are recommended (something you would wear on the street) but not necessary.
- Eye and Ear Protection and a Baseball cap or hat with a brim are required at all times. We recommend eye and ear protection designed for shooting. They can be found at any shooting store at minimal cost. If you can afford the electronic ear muffs (like these Howard Leight Impact Sports Electronic Muffs will make the day more enjoyable)
- 350 Rounds of Factory Ammo (NO RELOADS!) Most drills you will be able to shoot as much as you want. You can order ammo by the case cheaply here from my affiliate. Leave the ammo in it’s original boxes and just bring it all in a bag or ammo can. Keep the original boxes so if there is a problem with the ammo we can figure out where it came from and sort it form other stuff.
- At least 3 Magazines for your weapon, or 4 speed loaders. We recommend you bring a couple more if you have them, but they are not required.
- Bring back up guns and gear of you have them. Not required but you would be surprised how often things break.
- Whatever medications, liquids, foods, band aids, sun screen, etc… you will need for the day. Most locations are remote and there is no place to get extra stuff.
- Not taking gear, pen and paper or electronic tablet or phone in case you want to write stuff down.
- You will also need a box, gun case or container of some sort to transport your gun(s) from the car to the firing line. If you carry your gun on your person, no problem, leave it holstered. We do all gun handling on the firing line together, NOT in the parking lot. You’ll have opportunity to swap out carry ammunition. What we don’t want are ANY guns to be out of containers or holsters anywhere but the firing line!
- Don’t bother loading your magazines up before class. The first couple drills you will only need a limited number of rounds and you will have plenty of time to load your magazines during the day.
- Food and Water for the day. There isn’t time to go get something and you won’t want to waste the class time to do so. We eat on the range to maximize the training time.
