Pistol Operations 1 [POPS-1] is our flagship class, and we believe it is the most comprehensive two day pistol class in the industry. Designed for the LEO, military, and law abiding citizen that carries a pistol on a daily basis, you won't simply learn the fundamentals of shooting a pistol, you'll learn how to fight with a pistol. This class focuses on proper fundamentals and weapons handling that are optimized for stress, along with a heavy emphasis on developing the fighting mindset, tactics, and skills to survive a lethal force confrontation. Because the pistol is so widely carried professionally and for personal protection, this class includes our core curriculum, ie lectures on survival principles, martial gun manipulation, mindset, and many other valuable topics. Our core curriculum is not covered in our other classes, but these must have principles carry over to our other classes. With that said, when considering training with Forever Armed, Pistol Operations 1 is highly recommended as the first class to take.

Note: This class does require a minimum of 2 students to be registered for the class. Upon 1 week prior to the class start date, if we don't have a minimum of 2 students registered, you will be notified that the class has been cancelled and your registration fee will be refunded, or if you choose, it can be applied toward a different class. Please plan your traveling arrangements around this policy.
