Phoenix Firearms Training

The Pinnacle of Defensive Firearms Training in Arizona

Advanced Pistol Handling


 The Advanced Pistol Handling course is designed to expand the circumstances and conditions under which a student can apply the skills developed in the Combat Focus Shooting course. This course will cover:

Non-Diagnostic Linear Malfunction Drills
One handed & Weak Handed Reloads
One Handed & Weak Handed Malfunction Drills
Presentation from the holster in 360 degrees
Unorthodox Shooting Positions (grounded, seated)
Shooting Around Cover
Unreasonable Distance Shooting
Volume of Fire
The Balance of Speed & Precision

The APH Course is designed as a companion course for students who have completed fundamental defensive shooting training in the CFS Program and want to expand their skill sets and increase competency. At the end of the course, the student will have been exposed to (and practiced) shooting positions from all plausible angles while standing, seated, kneeling, prone or supine as well as properly shooting around cover in order to maximize its protective value. Students will also train one handed firearm handling, reloading and malfunction clearing. Unlike the CFS Program, in APH students will be forced to deal with a variety of malfunctions in a way that is congruent with the conditions of an dynamic critical incident.


The APH course is an intense physically and mentally challenging course that will take any students confidence and ability to defend themselves with a gun to a higher level.

Students will fire between 400-500 rounds.  This is a one day class.  Please Note: In order to register for this course, a student must have completed a CFS course that offers at least one day of CFS instruction.  If you would like to take this course immediately and have not taken a one or two day CFS course we can create a custom package for you.
