The Black Badge is a two day in-depth training course in the safe competitive shooting techniques required not only to compete at IPSC events but to deliver the confidence and expertise to use handguns in the safest possible manner.

It is a mandatory course required to shoot IPSC matches in Canada. IPSC is a dynamic shooting sport where the principles of Accuracy, Speed, and Power are balanced in a unique scoring system. It requires competitors to shoot fast and accurately, often shooting on the move and developing techniques and styles to shave off fractions of a second between shots, during reloads and drawing from the holster.

Basic equipment requirements: Pistol (minimum 9mm caliber), 3 magazines, 2 magazine pouches and a holster which must cover the trigger when the gun is holstered, a belt to mount the equipment on and 500 rounds of ammunition.

For further details and information, please contact Nick at

Fees for this course are collected by the instructor. Cost of the course is $205.
