Basic Handgun Marksmanship | Houston

Basic Handgun Marksmanship | Houston Keeping up with current trends and new training, we consider ourselves well-versed in firearms. We also believe in order to be a good instructor you must first be a good student; therefore, we have read many articles in handgun magazines as well as LE magazines, and have taken training from a lot of different instructors some with names you would instantly know and some you would not (some good instructors and some not so good). But we have always learned something from each and every one of them.

As we have progressed after the incidents of 9/11, we believe the average citizen has become more aware of the need to be able to defend themselves. A handgun is the tool most often utilized. However please note it is our firm belief that the handgun is not a “man stopper”. It is simply a tool; a tool to fight your way back to the shotgun or long rifle you should have had if you knew you were going to be in a fight.

We should also note that we firmly believe in 3 principals of handgun training: mindset, tactics and training; and that when training, there is a big difference between qualification or “target” accuracy and combat accuracy. We remember our military training that when training for the fight, keep in mind paper targets often do not move and do not shoot back. So having said all of that, where does one start with their handgun training? At Invicta Tactics Training Academy, we feel the fundamentals are the foundation of your training. Without a good foundation nothing else will work. It’s the idea that you have to crawl before you walk and walk before you run.
