Beyond Concealed Carry

Course Schedule

This is a course designed for you! This is an intermediate course designed for concealed carry.  This course will get you shooting and moving faster then you ever thought.  It starts at the beginning and by the end of the day you’ll be running and gunning like a pro.  Our course gets you shooting fast and then moving fast.  It is designed around the concept of a typical concealed carry self defense gun use.  But we will also work on some out of the ordinary situations.

Course Description:

We’ll start with drawing from concealment and then work on weapons manipulation. You’ll learn the best way to clear a malfunction and get your gun back in the fight.  Then from their we’ll start shooting fast and up close.

We’ll spend lunch on the, eating together and enjoying a couple lectures on mind set and the legal use of force.

After lunch you’ll learn how to move and shoot.  You’ll earn how to walk and then run while shooting, making hits and keeping from getting hit.  You’ll learn the effective use of cover and a couple other things as the day goes on.

You will shoot a minimum of 300 rounds.  Bring extra and you may get to shoot a lot more.  Most of the drills are set up to allow you to pick how many rounds you would like to shoot.

When you sign up, Please Read Below:

What You’ll need:

-A serviceable handgun in caliber .380, or larger. 9mm or larger, is actually recommended.
-A Proper belt worn holster for your specific make/model of pistol, Those manufactured by Concealment Solutions, Comp-Tac, Bladetech, White Dog Holsters and Dale Fricke are highly recommended. NO BLACKHAWK SERPA holsters. You’ll also need a belt worn carrier for your spare magazine or speedloader.
-Long pants or shorts with belt loops. (Jeans, or 511-type BDU’s are acceptable.)
-A sturdy belt (leather or a nylon pistol belt) which can hold the weight of your holstered pistol and spare magazine. Flimsy, woven or fabric dress belts will not work.
-Sturdy footwear – hiking boots, etc… No open toed footwear will be allowed.
-We recommend as much bare skin as possible be covered up, so long sleeves are recommended, but not required.
-A cover garment like a light shirt, vest or jacket. We draw from concealment in this class.
-Eye and ear protection, as well as a BASEBALL CAP or HAT WITH A BRIM.
-300 rounds of FACTORY ammunition. We do not allow home reloads in our courses. Freedom Munitions ammo is OK. We suggest you take all the small boxes of ammunition, open them, and dump the ammo loose into one big box. This saves time and keeps the trash down on the range.
-At least 3 spare magazines, or 3 speedloaders if you’re using a revolver.
-Back-up guns are recommended, but not required.

-Whatever medications, liquids, food stuffs, band aids, sun screen, etc., you’ll need for the day.
-Note taking material. Pen, paper…

-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, 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 behind the firing line!

We look forward to training with you and also having a lot of fun!

“There was a mixture of sound safety and defensive procedures, self defense discussions, and excellent safe live fire drills…I pushed my speed far past what I thought I could do…I would recommend the class to anyone.”


“…in general, I think this was a really fun, fast moving course, with useful specific techniques that I can now practice at home and a confidence builder on my skills as a shooter.”


“… I didn’t think I could shoot that fast and still be hitting the COM (center of mass)”


“If you get a chance to train with Bob and Ben take it!”


“This was a great course taught by great instructors… this is a course that I would take again..”


“This was a great course worth every dollar and every round! Not to mention, it was a whole lot of fun with a great group of people.”

      Harry, Thanks so much for the comment!! I don’t understand why PayPal doesn’t work for my website sometimes. I just replaced the code and it is working again. You can sign up here on the site or I will send you an email with an invoice attached so you can just click through in the next couple minutes. Thanks again for the comment. I had no idea the thing wasn’t working.

    Bob and Ben you guys are awesome! I attended your class in San Antonio for Beyond Concealed Carry (3-16-13) and had a great time. I came away with so much new and useful information. It was great being exposed to new skills and practicing things we can’t practice at a typical gun range. Shooting while moving, reloading while moving, and the ever so important drawing from concealment. The class was well worth the money and then some. I really appreciate you both being patient, humble, and down to earth. I highly recommend this class to anyone who’s looking for more than just standing in front of a non-moving target. It really is the next step after CHL. Keep up the good work.

    Bob and Ben do a fantastic job of bringing everyone along in the training progression; moving in the beginning from establishing strict safety practices, covering the basics, and then moving into the skills needed by the concealed carry citizen like double taps, hammer pairs, the Mozambique, moving laterally, and shooting from behind cover. Bob and Ben compliment each others styles and bring good instructional techniques and personal backgrounds that enable everyone from the novice to the experienced shooter learn needed skills from the class. They also make the class a lot of fun. I couldn’t have asked for a better pair of instructors and training and it would have been worth it at twice the price. I can’t wait to take another class with them. Thanks again guys for the great time we had and the skills I learned (and the ones I found out that I need to seriously improve on!).
