Two Pillars Training – John Hearne – Cognitive Pistol 2 day

October 7, 2023 @ 09:00 - October 8, 2023 @ 17:30

This course takes the concept of thinking with the pistol and takes it to the next level.The course will feature a series of drills of increasing complexity that will make the shooter think while running the pistol. The goal is to place the shooter under as much “cognitive load” as they can stand. A major teaching tool in this process is the use of tactical anatomy.

Tactical anatomy teaches the shooter how to place the most effective fight stopping hits under the reality of three-dimensional targets. The class will feature anatomically correct, three-dimensional targets that must be engaged correctly and under realistic time limits.

The two-day version of this class features new drills and emphasizes traditional square range drills that force the shooter to think with the pistol in the hand. This class will include the use of three-dimensional shooting scenarios with moving and stationary targets to replicate complex, real-world problems.

Round Count: Minimal round count is ~500 rounds. Some portions of the course allow for extra shooting based on the student’s interest, ability, and ammunition availability. Up to 550 rounds could be fired in the course but are not required.

Pre-Requisites: Students need to already be competent and safe gun handlers. They must be able to load/unload, present/reholster safely, perform reloads, reduce malfunctions, etc.

While anyone capable of safely running their handgun will benefit from the class, the most benefit will be achieved by those who can already shoot well. Since accurate shooting will be emphasized – the ability to place 5 rounds in a 5” circle from five yards in less than five seconds from concealment is the recommended standard.

Tuition includes all range fees.
