This course is not for Beginners and requires students to draw and shoot accurately from a holster.


Level 3 Pistol was designed for students who carry a firearm for work, personal protection, competition, or those who want to take their firearms training to a higher level. This course will help fine tune your marksmanship, but focuses heavily on intermediate mechanics, manipulations, and Close Quarter Battle (CQB) fundamentals.


Those interested in taking this course must be intimately familiar with the fundamentals of shooting (Grip, Sight Picture/Sight Alignment, Proper Trigger Press & Control).

Do I need to own a gun to attend this class?

Nope! We provide a simulated firearm for you to use during the virtual courses, but you should have a solid understanding of intermediate shooting concepts. 

Do I need to take Level 1 or 2 Pistol before attending this course?

Nope! We do expect that you've had some form of training before attending this course, but if you are able to safely draw from the holster and have a solid understanding of marksmanship, feel free to sign-up!

We aren't shooting real firearms, so is this training truly useful?

Dry fire and simulation training should only be used to supplement live-fire training - NOT REPLACE IT; However, there are an exceptional amount of benefits to doing both. The experience you get from courses in the Virtual Range will directly translate to live-fire training. We encourage you to train and try both.

How do I sign-up for this course?

First, check our calendar to see if we have a course planned that fits your schedule. If not, feel free to contact us to get something scheduled. 

Where are Virtual Range courses held?

Our primary virtual range is located at Xiphos Corporation headquarters in Rancho Cordova, CA.
