Unfortunately, as of July 2021, Lumpkin County has shut down the "live fire" portion of The Complete Combatant. Never fear, we have moved these live fire classes to Georgia Mountain Shooting Association. Same great instruction, just a different location.
There will be a $20-$25 range fee per person, per day, that will be collected by the range that hosts us. This is common practice so bring cash!
All NON live fire classes will still be held at our range here in Dahlonega, GA.
Inclement Weather: If the weather or driving conditions pose a threat to our students or our coaches then we will postpone class. If not, the class will go forth as scheduled rain or shine.
Cancellation Policy: If The Complete Combatant does not meet the required number of students within 7 days prior to class or we have to cancel for any reason then a FULL refund will be given to you or you may opt to attend a future class.
If you have to cancel for any reason up to 30 days prior to class then a FULL refund will be given to you. Anything UNDER 30 days then NO REFUND will be given but you are invited to attend another class that The Complete Combatant offers within 6 months of the original class date. Please make note: if you have cancelled class twice then you will not be allowed to reschedule class a third time while "riding on" the original payment. You are most welcome on our range but you would need to register again at the regular class fee.
EXCEPTION TO THE RULE ABOVE: If we have a SOLD OUT class, I will stop marketing and close down registration for that specific class since it is full. If you cancel anytime AFTER I have done this (no matter the "timeline") then you will NOT receive a refund because I have closed down all avenues of marketing. You are most welcome on our range but you would need to register again at the regular class fee.
REMINDER: Brian Hill offers 1 hour - 4 hour Private Lessons.
Pistol Essentials is The Complete Combatant's 1 day "basic pistol class". Both IRON sights and RED DOT sights are welcome in this class! FUNDAMENTALS are the key to everything! Pistol Essentials is designed to introduce you to defensive shooting and help improve your skills. In this class you will learn the importance of stance, grip, sights, follow through and trigger through dry practice and live fire. We will introduce "presenting from a holster" and practice drawing during dry fire/ live fire. We will cover shooting from common positions seen in defensive shooting with a higher level of accuracy. Pistol Essentials will teach you how to practice, how to measure your skill and how to TEST yourself.
The ability to present your firearm and make accurate hits sooner is the focus for this 1 day class. The fundamentals of grip, trigger, sights, and follow through will be explored in a series diagnostic drills focused around the process of drawing the firearm efficiently. These drills will help create essential skills and solid fundamentals for the continued improvement of your shooting competency.
Pistol Essentials is an introduction to modern coaching methodology, application and structure of deliberate practice, and the use of diagnostic fundamentals.
Below are just samples of what this class can offer in addition to the FUNDAMENTALS. Please make note that each class has its "own personality" so drills will vary.
