Low Light Handgun Course in Eugene Oregon

Course Location


Tactical Handgun 1 (TH1) is the flagship firearms course at Defensive Firearms Instruction. During the 8-hour course our goal is to provide students with the tools and mindset necessary to properly defend one’s self and their loved ones. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran, you will get something out of this class. Along with top quality instruction, you will have the opportunity to practice drills in a safe and friendly atmosphere that you aren’t able to do at most public ranges. We gear our drills towards not only making you more comfortable with firing and manipulating your firearm, but towards preparing you for a defensive encounter.

We begin the day by going over the mindset and philosophies of use regarding the carrying, use and ownership of a firearm. We then begin the dry fire segment of the class. This will include going over proper handling of the firearm, drawing and holstering, loading/unloading, and malfunction clearing. After getting these fundamentals down we move into the live fire section of the class. This portion begins with an accuracy assessment where you will get direct guidance and feedback tailored specifically to your needs from our competent instruction staff.

During the rest of the live fire portion we go over single-handed firing, shooting from behind cover, shooting from kneeling and prone positions, close contact drills, and multi-target acquisition drills. The culmination of the course is the Oregon DPSST PQC-1 Handgun Qualification Course. This will allow you to quantify your skills and compare with what is required of your local law enforcement. By quantifying your abilities, it will allow you to set a bar for achieving and surpassing your goals.

Be Prepared In Advance With LegalShield

Are you are a private citizen carrying a weapon for personal defense? Are you a private security professional working your job?

You should, too! It is imperative for individuals who carry firearms for personal defense to have legal backing. Even in the most clear-cut self-defense situations, if you end up in a defensive situation there is an incredibly high likelihood that attorneys are going to have to get involved. If you do not have legal backing set up in advance, it could cost tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars to obtain legal defense. Our recommendation is to have LegalShield, which provides legal defense for any situation, to include defensive situations, for a low monthly fee.

Did you know that every member of our Defensive Firearms Instruction team personally carries LegalShield?

We recommend getting the base plan plus the gun owner supplement which totals $37.90 per month. Individuals who get this coverage can also add dependents and spouses to the plan and they get the same coverage for no additional cost. For independent contractors or company owners, you can get a business plan to provide coverage for your companies which starts out at $39.00 per month.
