We take the fundamentals and apply them to an operational environment.
This is an intense 2 or 3 day class that takes you up a notch to efficient weapon transitions, moving, positional platforms, shooting around obstacles at varied heights and angles, and working with partners and groups, using both pistol and rifle platforms.
Day 1 and 2 concentrate on transitions, both weapon and hand/shoulder, shooting around obstacles, moving, multi-position platforms, distance engagements, along with an optional low/no light weapon use. The 3rd day will concentrate on working in pairs and groups as a cohesive team, and engaging threats while working in close proximity with team members.
In this class, it is imperative that you not only know your chosen rifle and pistol, but you know how to run them efficiently, as we will not be working on manipulation drills. We will focus on street-useful training and drills that will require a higher standard of accuracy, handling and much more physical ability.
This course will not only improve your physical skills, but your mental learning skills as well. The student will have the opportunity to work the skills and drills many times in order to achieve a solid foundation. This class will push you to succeed and learn what you need through experiential learning.
We do not believe in advanced firearm/shooting skills, just skills not yet learned.

Muzzle Brakes : Due to the possible long term residual effects of their use, from not only the decibel level, but also from the concussion which can lead to possible damage of the inner ear containing an organ which produces nerve impulses in response to sound vibrations, we are no longer allowing them on the range.
If your brake has the same output as a standard A2, you will be allowed to use it. If not, please exchange or remove your brake prior to arriving at our facility, I have standard flash hiders to use at no cost to you. Contact me ahead of time.
