Point shooting is sometime referred to as unsighted intuitive or threat focused shooting. Simply stated it is combat accurate shooting without the use of the pistol sights. It is not "spray and pray" shooting.
Point shooting techniques are effective at distances between zero to 21 feet. These shooting techniques can deliver combat effective shots using one-hand or two-hand grips.
Point shooting techniques work when employing dynamic movement. They also are effective in no/light or low/light situations.
Point Shooting Courses
Introduction to Handguns
The Introduction to Handguns course is designed to meet the needs of a person who has never handled or shot a handgun or who has little experience in handgun and wants to know how to safely handle a handgun. This class meets the training requirements needed to submit an application for a Florida Resident or Non-Resident Concealed Weapon or Firearm License. The course will include a lesson on the selection of a handgun that fits your needs and requirements. Handguns are available and a person who does not already own one should defer that decision until they have taken this class.
The basic course is 4-5 hours in length and requires the student to shoot a minimum of 100 rounds of ammunition or a maximum of 150 rounds of ammunition.
Cost is $50 plus $27 for a copy of Florida Firearms Law, Use and Ownership. This purchase is waived if the participant already owns a copy of Release 7. There is a gun cleaning fee of $10 if the student does not own their own handgun.
This course consists of the following:
- Introduction to Florida or Georgia Statutes
- Introduction to Basic Firearms Safety

To complete this course you will have to demonstrate that you know how to load, fire, and unload your pistol with a reasonable degree of skill. We expect you to hit your target. Don't worry though. We will work with you to achieve the level of skill needed to receive our training certificate.
