My Customized NM CCW Qualification Course of Fire

Demonstration of the Course of Fire for My Class

Note: This is a video of the specific course of fire that I use to determine your competency with using a firearm and engaging a target.

 

There is no NM DPS requirement other than simply shooting 15 rounds at the 3-yard line and 10 rounds at the 7-yard line.

 

However, I believe competency is demonstrated via other aspects of a possible use of deadly force engagement such as reloading, shooting with one hand, and shooting from kneeling.

 

Those other aspects are not required...but, are highly recommended. This video illustrates and incorporates those recommendations.

 

Section 10.8.2.15, B of the Final Rules states, "...An applicant or licensee shall demonstrate competency in the safe use of each category and caliber of handgun for which he or she seeks certification by firing the handgun with live ammunition at a target no larger than 12 inches wide and 18 inches high. An applicant or licensee shall fire 15 rounds from three yards and 10 rounds from seven yards."

 

"...An applicant or licensee shall score 4 points for each shot that hits within the scoring line and zero points for each shot that hits outside the scoring line. An applicant must obtain a score of 72% (7 off/18 on) to pass the competency demonstration."

 

  • All firing is two-handed unless otherwise stated 

  • Shooters must reload when empty

  • Scan for threats after engaging and after reloading

    • ​Finger ON trigger, ready to fire if needed

  • Come to the low ready position after scanning for threats
