Nebraska Shooters


We are proud to host John Farnam with Defense Training Institute at Nebraska Shooters for a Defensive Handgun Course.

The DTI Defensive Handgun Course is designed to prepare the responsible, adult gun owner to handle, maintain, safely store, and use their firearm safely, responsibly, correctly, and effectively, so that they are able to successfully handle nearly any personal protection situation.
An increasing number of people are seeking to improve their defensive shooting skills and expand their knowledge about the use of firearms for personal protection.
Here in the United States, many states are currently expanding access to concealed carry permits. DTI classes offer permit holders and those who are considering applying for a permit an opportunity to learn how to properly and safely carry a concealed handgun and to understand the laws regarding the use of lethal force for personal protection.
The course will consist of classroom lecture/demonstration and live-fire exercises on the range.
Classroom instruction includes:

  • Situation Awareness
  • Threat Evaluation
  • The Force Continuum
  • Courtroom Savvy
  • The Physio/Psychological Aspects of Lethal Encounters
  • Live-fire exercises on the range include:
  • Threat evaluation
  • Risk identification and reduction
  • Lethal threat containment and management
  • Precision shooting
  • Discretionary shooting
  • Low-light shooting (with and without a flashlight)
  • Cover and movement
  • Performing under stress

Tactical training is conducted in a realistic manner, stressing correct use of cover, movement, challenges, and other important individual tactics. In addition, students will practice close and extremely close encounters and weapon control.

The classroom and range are located about 20 minutes south of Lincoln and we have RV parking available.  We will also have rooms in the bunkhouse available on site.

Class size is limited to 12 so don't miss this chance to learn from one of the legends in defensive handgun training.
