I'd like to know if anyone offers live-fire holster draw training. A lot of ranges don't let you draw from a holster, and I was curious if anyone offers training of this sort.

Where are you located?

I think Excel has some holster skills classes in the Chicago area

You can get it at Maxons too. Just ask to take the Holster Skills classes offered on their list of courses.

Where do you live?

I know the three big ranges by me, NW of Chicago in Mchenry (2nd Amendment Sports), Crystal Lake (On Target), and West Dundee (Gatt Guns) all offer holster classes, defensive pistol, etc.

I second InterestedBystander's (post # 3 above) recommendation of the Excel Training Group if you're in the Chicago area.  Bill and TD are great instructors.  Bill is a member here as well (cherryriver).

QCI Firearms Training is offering NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home on May 20th and 21st. This class includes about 10-12 hours of range time, and almost all shots fired start with a holstered handgun. You can read the course description at the link above. 

 

You should be aware that Personal Protection In the Home is a prerequisite, and is being offered Saturday, April 29th. 

 

The classroom is just two minutes from the I-74 bridge from Moline, IL in Bettendorf, IA. The range is TBD.

 

PPOH is an excellent pistol class and will give you an opportunity to draw and fire from a concealed holster a few hundred times over the course of both days, as well as learn other skills every person with a CCL should know. You can probably find PPOH offered elsewhere in the state if you are not close to the Quad Cities.

I don't understand exactly what you're asking. But I'll take a guess and offer a little more information.

 

Personal Protection IN the Home is required before you can attend Personal Protection OUTSIDE the home. 

 

NRA Basic Pistol will satisfy the prerequisites for Personal Protection IN the home. However, instructors are allowed to accept other similar training and experience in lieu of NRA Basic Pistol before admitting a student to PPIH, including a pre-course evaluation exercise. Darin, the lead instructor for our upcoming PPIH/PPOH courses prefers students have NRA Basic Pistol certificates before taking these advanced courses because everyone starts on the same page and we don't have to spend time bringing any one up to speed.

 

If you have any more questions along these lines, you can contact Darin through his email: daring@qcifirearmstraining.com

 

So, it goes NRA Basic Pistol --> Personal Protection IN the Home --> Personal Protection OUTSIDE the Home (Basic and Advanced).

 

I hope his answers your question.
