Is this what should be fine if target shooting?
Qualification is done at several distances, but I think the longest is 45’ and everything else is closer.
from a draw?
standing facing away and you have to do shimmy shimmy coco-pop 1st or?
(okies, sorry, that first one wasn’t fair… disregarding that…)
Hey @GlockGuy welcome to the land of the posters. Nice to see a long term lurker decide the water’s fine and come join the pool party!
@Chris4, waiting for @dawn to chime in on if we can post the details… it’s not listed on class description sites so I am not sure if its ok to publish it… I haven’t asked but @Dawn can let us know if it is.
Definitely following because I’ll be going through the instructor training as well in Feb. I’m loving the community so far and totally love the USCCA facility. I hope everyone has a great and safe holiday!!!
Hey everyone! As far as the qualification goes I would practice stance, sight picture, and maintaining a good trigger press at various but reasonable shooting distances.
Thank you for the info! Very much appreciated!
And tighten up your gun handling. Safety is A Thing.
I don’t think we publish the actual qualifications. 6" group at 45’ should be just fine. And what @James said.
@Zee depending on what type of qualification the target size and group varies.
I personally practice on 4 inch group at 25 yards (75 feet) 1 shot per 1.5- 2 seconds with full size Beretta 92FS.
I believe it’s safer to gain the distance advantage over the bad guys (Usually Sloppy) and hostage situations.
Especially in public places like malls or restaurants.
However 6" group at 45’ it’s just awesome.
Thank you all for adding to this thread.
I do know what I went through for qualification but let me say this, I print my targets off the internet on 8.5 X 11 paper ( 1 target per paper, not grouped together for one target) and use them for practice out to 25 yards on my own range. That way I can place my groups close to the center. If you can do that then you will not have any problem with qualification.
I took the course in Fall and it’s multiple distances and not draw from holster. (NRA CCW is the course if you want holster work).
It’s not a hard shoot. It should be a no brainer with no practice needed for anyone who instructs.
IMHO, USCCA needs a course with holster work, or if they have it, my apologies for my ignorance.
Si vis pacem, para bellum
We do have one, @Aaron25! Check out the Defensive Shooting Fundamentals class - you’ll LOVE it! Presentation from a holster, rapid fire, balance of speed and precision and so much more in this awesome class!

Thank you, Dawn. Another question–do you have any team training available for security teams at church? Or can you point me in the right direction?
Thank you in advance!
and one more thing–how can I add my USCCA instructor badge?
Not necessarily for the team, but we do have some suggestions. Here are some threads that might help, @Aaron25
I’ll get your badge for you
I was a little pissed at myself. I scored 90% on my Concealed carry Instructor qual.
hey @Dawn I’m not sure you got the DSF1 instructor badge setup for me, but also I recently got certified as a CCHDF Instructor as well.
(Real name: Thomas Kral if you need to verify).
Congratulations, @AlphaKoncepts! You should be set with both badges (and others) now.
