This course is designed for the Advanced shooter and prior to registering for this course the student must have taken and passed Tactical Pistol II within one year of registering for this course.


In order to be accepted in this course the student is required to display a level of proficiency with their pistol by passing a qualification test. Students that pass the qualification test can continue on with the course and a certificate of training is awarded to those students who complete and pass the course.  If a student does not pass the qualification test they can either (a) complete the day of training but no certificate of training will be issued; or, (b) they can elect not to continue with the training and receive a 50% refund of the course fee.


Tactical Pistol III consists of nine hours of training on an outdoor range. Each student must have a Concealed weapons permit or have applied for one. Class size is kept small (12) to permit individual instruction.  Students must provide their own handgun, revolver or semi-automatic pistol, holster, three speed loaders or speed strips or three pistol magazines, eye and ear protection and 500 rounds of ammunition.
