Allegiance Defense Solutions EDC (Every Day Carry) Pistol Course is a two-day course that was developed through lessons-learned over years of covert and low-profile law enforcement training and experience. The curriculum is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to carry, conceal, produce, and utilize a pistol from concealment safely/effectively irrespective of your background or profession.

Topics covered will range and progress from use of force considerations to firearms selection, setup, gear selection, carry considerations, pistol manipulations, fundamentals of pistol marksmanship, multiple round engagements, multiple target engagements, positional shooting, movement, proxemics considerations, as well as emergency medical management.

*Note: Allegiance Defense Solutions Low-Light EDC Pistol Course incorporates much of the principles and practices taught and drilled in the EDC Pistol Course curriculum, yet with a primary emphasis of focus on doing so in diminished lighting conditions. Due to variations in time regarding the sunsetting across the nation in different seasons, most Low-Light EDC Pistol Courses are taught as an “add-on” feature to the regular EDC Pistol Course and are taught in conjunction with / shortly after day-one of EDC Pistol. If you elect to add-on this course offering, ensure to bring an additional 200 rounds appropriate caliber ammo.
