I would look for NRA instructors that are certified to teach advanced pistol skills.  NRA Defensive Pistol is a great one day class designed for CC holders.  It is all holster work with little classroom and a lot of range  time.  A CC license is all that is required to take Defensive Pistol.  For those holding the NRA Basic Pistol Rating, the NRA Personal Protection in the Home followed by NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home courses are also excellent advanced courses.

Take a look at Trigger Farms.

​I have attended their class and it is by far the best in the area. 


Thank you

USCCA Defensive Shooting Fundamentals is the type of course you're looking for. You'll learn to holster draw and fire multiple rounds, the balance of speed shooting and precision shooting, proper shot placement, shooting on the move and so much more. The best part is you'll be experiencing these skills you may need to save your life in a fun and challenging way.
