Applied Pistolcraft

Lee Weems combines two decades of experience and training as a peace officer with education from many of the most renowned names in the personal safety training industry into this learning experience.  The class begins with his “Standing Your Ground” presentation on the dynamics of deadly force encounters and then moves to the range for a shooting experience that actively incorporates the four lifestyle rules for possessing a firearm including shoot/no-shoot decision making, changing your angle to get a safer shot, divided attention drills, and priority of fire considerations.

The class will conclude with the FBI Pistol Qualification Course.  Students will receive a letter of documentation.

The After Action Project featured a review of Lee’s training, and he is a frequent guest co-host on Civilian Carry Radio where he has also been interviewed as a special guest.

Students will need to bring the following:

  • All personal safety equipment (eye/ear protection, brimmed hat, etc)
  • A quality firearm with a minimum 6-shot capacity
  • Minimum of three magazines of 10-round capacity or more; a minimum of five magazines if less than 10-round capacity.  Revolver shooters will need at least five loaders.
  • A holster that will not collapse when the pistol is drawn and that does not have a retention device that requires the use of the trigger finger to actuate (such as the Serpa).  AIWB is good to go, but no crossdraw or shoulder rigs.
  • Concealment garment
  • Personal comfort items (drinks, food, chairs, etc)
  • 800 rounds of ammunition
