Take the FBI Handgun Qualification Challenge

The FBI handgun qualification is a well known standard demonstration of handgun proficiency. This longstanding course of fire was updated in 2019 and includes some new challenges which will push yours skills!

The 50-round course of fire covers distances from 3 to 25 yards and includes single hand shooting, off hand shooting, holster work, standing and kneeling positions.

There are two levels of qualifications: 80/100 for standard qualification and 90/100 for instructor level.

The 10 strings of fire offer some very challenging time limits. Lets see if you have what it takes to measure up against America's G-Men.

How FASTER Challenges Work:

Each month we will issue a new challenge to help you practice self defense skills. Just for TRYING the challenge you will receive a custom FASTER Challenge patch to commemorate your effort and support.

The patch is a standard embroidered Velcro-backed 2″ x 3″ patch suitable for putting on hats, jackets, book-bags, range bags, and anywhere else Velcro will stick.

So get out, take the challenge, support FASTER, and have some fun!

1) Go to FASTERSavesLives.org and scroll to the bottom of the page where you will see the heading “Upcoming FASTER Training.” Click that link to begin registration for each challenge.

2) You will see a link that lets you download the course of fire.

3) The "Join the Challenge Now" button is where you actually sign up for the challenge. The cost monthly will be $20 for the challenge patch and for the official targets if you need them. Join the challenge now, because once the month is over, if you still want to take the challenge you can, but the price goes up on the first of the following month.

4) Go to the range or an appropriate space of land, use top-notch gun safety, and take the challenge! Make sure you learn and have fun while you do it! There is no required score. And it's on the honor system.

5) Please take pics and tag us on our social media accounts and help us spread the word and fund the mission of FASTER Saves Lives! #FASTERChallenge

7) Sign up for the next challenge. We plan on offering a different challenge each month.
