California Training Expedition
(cont)

This unique, custom-tailored course offers firearms training by some of the most highly respected instructors in the industry. Bridging the gap between one of the best-known first-generation combat shooters and leading instructors of the next generation, this course aims to show that the more things change, the more they stay the same…

This “advanced” course assumes the student is capable of performing all the basic gunhandling, marksmanship, and tactics drills taught in rigorous shotgun and pistol courses On Demand, including shooting on the move, weapon retention shooting, a weak-hand drawstroke, and weapon transitions with two pistols.

After a brief review, this course continues with exploring one’s close-range weapon potential in an enclosed environment such as a car or home. Emphasis will be placed on close-range tactics with both the shotgun and handgun (close-range shooting, increased speed, takeaways, weapon retention, one-handed manipulation and operation, back-up weapon transition) Stakeout Setup and Staging, alternative aiming methods, handgun ergonomics, impaired vision drills, and downed/injured defender survival will be explored. Vehicular shooting, moving target systems (Enhanced Mirage, Chargers, Laterals), and dim-light/nighttime shooting will continue to challenge the student. Beginning with Col. Cooper’s Color Codes, the course will emphasize problem solving with situational assessment, verbal skills, and de-escalation techniques that may warrant a no-shoot situation. This will culminate in a series of training scenarios with Airsoft weaponry, potentially force-on-force, or non-firing verbal de-escalation.

Prerequisites: Training from specific recognized instructors (or approved equivalent) in Shotgun and Handgun are ABSOLUTE prerequisites for this course.

Bonus Presentations:

John Jardine
· Chief Engineer and Designer of the Valtro 1998A1 .45 ACP Pistol
· Custom Gunsmith/Gunbuilder
Mr. Jardine will discuss the ramifications of common gunsmithing repairs/customizations, good and bad, on handguns and tactical long guns. His experience in both the manufacturing and customizing of firearms are invaluable for the serious gunfighter who must have a gun that will go “bang” everytime.

Tommy Gong
· Certified Instructor under Ted Wong in Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do
· Student of the late Sonny Umpad, Visayan Style Philippine Martial Arts
· Student of Small Arms Training
Mr. Gong is one of the least-known “martial artists” in the world, and he likes to stay “low-key.” He will hopefully be able to show you how to use your knife without stabbing or cutting yourself! No prerequisite required…

Point Shooting Progressions - May 12-13, 2007 - Boulder City Nevada
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

May 12-13, 2007
Point Shooting Progressions
Boulder City, NV

Force on force training has proven beyond any argument that the traditional shooting range methods are simply not suitable for reactive gunfighting. In this course, Suarez International Specialist Instructor Roger Phillips will teach you the "Fight Continuum". Roger has studied extensively with Suarez International. He has also researched virtually every threat focused shooting system for many years. This course distills it all into one well thought out and extremely applicable system that dovetails neatly into the regular Close Range Gunfighting matrix, presenting the full aspect of the integration of sighted and unsighted fire at CQB distances.



Duration: 2 days 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Ammunition: Approximately 1500 rounds (Minimum)
Requirements: Pistol, Carry Holster, 3 Magazines and Magazine Pouch, Range Safety Gear
Instructor: Roger Phillips
Location: Boulder Rifle & Pistol Club, Boulder City NV. http://www.brpc1.org/

$350.00 ENROLL HERE http://www.suarezinternationalstore.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=313

Point Shooting Progressions Course Overview

The “Fight Continuum” React as you need to react, see what you need to see, and move as you need to move.

This course comes directly out of my experience in Gabe’s “Interactive Gun Fighting” course. Immediately after the course I went out looking to train with the very best point shooters in the country. This course is a direct link to my findings while training with Gabe, 7677, and Matt Temkin. This course is designed to make a shooter the very best that they can be in regards to point shooting with dynamic movement. It is designed to make the shooter more well rounded and completely versatile inside what is now being called “The Fight Continuum.” After this course you will be able to use your hand/eye coordination to make combat accurate hit from any angle, from any position, throughout your one and two handed draw stroke, with whatever movement is necessary. This course is designed to fill in the gaps in prior sighted fire training so that the shooter can seamlessly integrate sighted and unsighted fire into one “simply shooting” concept.

This course is now two weeks away (see annoucement post above.) I spent the day working on target stands.

For the guys coming out, I wanted to let you know that if you want to get some work in with your back up guns. This will be an excellent opportunity for that.

Point shooting is all about the urgency of the shot and dynamic movement.....the perfect context for work with your back up gun.
******************************************************
Everybody needs an excuse to go to Vegas and here it is.

I have come up with a few hotel options depending on what the students want to get out of the trip to Vegas. You can stay in Boulder City, which is a quite small town five mile outside of the Vegas Valley. There is no gaming in Boulder City and the hotels are a little more "quaint."

Right in between Boulder City and Vegas we have Railroad Pass. This is where many of Gabes students stayed during CRG and CRGII. Decent rooms, casino, and resturants at a decent price. It is pretty isolated though. Approx. 8 miles from the range
http://www.railroadpass.com/

For something a little more we have The "Fiesta." This is a "locals" casino in Henderson. Much nicer rooms, casino, and restuarants. Walmart ammo supply a couple of miles away. Approx. 13 miles from the range.
http://henderson.fiestacasino.com/te....aspx?p=8&d=32

If anyone needs to entice the significant other with a really nice casino we also have Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa. Aprox. 15 miles from the range. http://www.greenvalleyranchresort.com/

(please see the course announcement for more details).

Folks,

We are hosting the above two courses with with Pat Goodale / P.F.T (www.pgpft.com) at Anvil Rock (Alderson, WV). This first course is the Glock Operator's and it is a 2 day class to be held on a Sat & Sun (June 16 - 17). The 2nd course is the M&P Operator's and this one will held on a Thur & Fri (Aug 23 & 24). Both are very much Handgun I heavy with more advance material including moving targets and scenarios. The course also includes the tactical use and maintenance of the Glock / M&P pistol by the certified armorers on-site.

Info on PFT's Handgun I per say can be found at : http://www.pgpft.com/handgun.htm

This course if is perfect for Glock and M&P owners who are novices and also those who are looking to better improve their handgunning skills. This class is what I took to prep myself for IDPA and such and it helped tremendously. The difference was night and day, before and after. This class is also perfect for the LE individual who could use the extra regimen.

Pat is one of those few that have plenty to share and pass on to his students from his many years as a Specs Ops and Intel officer with the USMC, where he also taught Weapons & Tactics. Pat has also done much for the LE community where he resides as a LEO and is a very well regarded LE instructor. He comes highly recommended and you can find more information from previous postings:

http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=677169 (http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=672919)

http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=677169 (http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=689640)

Pat's classes are $150 a day for a total of $300 for the 2 days. Equipment recommendations can also be found on the link given above. The facility recently received a face-lift with some additions including that of a Pro Shop, Templar Ridge. The folks at TR can accommodate any ammo needs for the class and one can also pre-order any ammo requirements direct from their web site (www.templarridge.com (http://www.templarridge.com) , which is still partially under construction - follow the Ammo Link). TR can also prep any accessory requirements including holsters, mag pouches, sights (Warren Tactical), ears, eyes, etc.

For accommodations, may I suggest the Brier Inn (http://www.brierinn.com) which is located in Lewisburg (http://www.lewisburg-wv.com), a small and beautiful historic town with a host of excellent restaurants and shops. For the most part of it, attendees usually find themselves having dinner together after Day 1, and that kinda makes it easier on the need to find a place.

Anyone interested can contact Pat directly at 540.559.4151 or training@pgpft.com or you can always email me.

Thanks a mil.

Every year since my retirement from law enforcement, I have sought out and trained with some of the best known firearms instructors* in the country.

This year, with the price of gasoline presently $3.299 per gallon here, I'm going to have to stay closer to home (Central Kentucky).

Anyone know of any defensive handgun &/or urban rifle (carbine) courses being taught this summer or fall within a hundred miles or so of Lexington, KY? I've reviewed those listed above already and find nothing that fits the bill. PM me if you prefer.

* Don't want to name drop but you should easily recognize most of them.

September 29th & 30th, 2007 (Class size is limited!)

We have just added an Advanced Pistol Fighting Course in Wisconsin.
www.right2defend.com/sched.htm

Our advanced pistol fighting class will teach you things necessary to survive real world situations. In the live fire exercises you will engage multiple moving targets in various life threatening situations in a 360 degree world. You will learn when and when not to draw your gun. Furthermore, you will also learn to utilize distractions while moving and drawing your gun. Expert marksmanship is NOT what is going to win the fight in most situations! Your mindset and tactics play a larger role in your survival than your marksmanship. You WILL experience stress similar to that of a real confrontation because you need to know how you are going to perform under stress.

This is a two day course. However, because of a large number of requests, we decided to offer you the option of coming one or both days. Keep in mind that some things in day two are based upon things discussed and executed in day one. However, some training is better than no training!!!

Please visit our website for more information regarding this course. www.right2defend.com/itccourse.htm And don’t forget that we offer a 100% money back guarantee. Click here (http://www.right2defend.com/cancel.htm) to view the conditions of the MBG.

It is very important that you receive realistic and practical training. Of course, you do need the basics before you move on to realism. The truth of the matter is that a large number of people don’t progress past the fundamentals (standing still, two handed shooting stance, one target, etc). A lot of people don’t spend time drawing and shooting while moving. If you do not train on drawing and shooting while you are moving, and at moving targets, then you are not training realistically for a life threatening situation. Quite honestly, if you do not train realistically then you do not have the skills necessary to survive a confrontation.

Point Shooting Progressions Course Overview

The “Fight Continuum” React as you need to react, see what you need to see, and move as you need to move.

This course comes directly out of my experience in Gabe’s “Interactive Gun Fighting” course. Immediately after the course I went out looking to train with the very best point shooters in the country. This course is a direct link to my findings while training with Gabe, 7677, and Matt Temkin. This course is designed to make a shooter the very best that they can be in regards to point shooting with dynamic movement. It is designed to make the shooter more well rounded and completely versatile inside what is now being called “The Fight Continuum.” After this course you will be able to use your hand/eye coordination to make combat accurate hit from any angle, from any position, throughout your one and two handed draw stroke, with whatever movement is necessary. This course is designed to fill in the gaps in prior sighted fire training so that the shooter can seamlessly integrate sighted and unsighted fire into one “simply shooting” concept.

Here is a recent offering:


The Boone County Indiana Sheriff Department is proud to again host Bill Jeans and Morrigan Consulting for a three (3) day course: Advanced Defensive Pistol October 12-14, 2007.

This intense course will supplement the student’s existing handgun training with advanced gunfighting skills based on the Modern Technique of the Pistol and real-world experience. Course material includes practical marksmanship, gun-handling, continuity of fire, malfunction clearance, shooting with movement, mental conditioning for combat, use of cover, wounded drills, one hand manipulation, ground-fighting, weapon retention and more. It incorporates full-contact defensive tactics with live-fire shooting. This is NOT a basic course, and is physically challenging. It is NOT competition oriented. Attendance is dependent on prior completion of Morrigan’s Defensive Pistol class or an acceptable defensive pistol course from a competent training provider. Check with Morrigan Consulting or local sponsor if you are not sure.

See attachment for further details.

We are offering our home defense course in Richmond, IN and Columbus, Ohio.

Most people have a false sense of security when it comes to personal safety and home safety. One reason that a lot of people don’t have a home invasion plan because they don’t think that “it will happen to them”. If you don't have a plan or execute that plan ON A REGULAR BASIS WITH THOSE YOU LOVE, then HOW do you expect to execute that plan when your lives may be in danger?

Now, whether or not guns are present in your home doesn’t mean there are not other tools available in the home to defend yourself with. Most of the information is valid whether or not you have a gun or guns in your residence. One of the most important things you can learn how to deter burglars from choosing your home.

Our Home Defense Course is designed to deal with three situations that you are likely to encounter.
1. The first one is that you are awakened in the middle of the night due to some sort of odd noise.
2. Secondly, you come home and find your home broken into.
3. Lastly, you enter your home unaware there is an intruder.

Home Defense Course Curriculum.

• Four layers of home defense.
• Discuss the three types of burglars.
• Communication: with loved ones and intruders
• Light intimidation (including the use of handheld tactical lights)
• Setting up your home for tactical advantages (including furniture, mirrors, etc.)
• Items needed in a safe room and how to position your loved ones in the safe room to reduce the likelihood of them being in the line of fire.
• Communication: with loved ones and intruders
• How to effectively search your home with a handgun, shotgun, or carbine.
• What you need to take with you when searching your home.
• Moving quietly throughout your dwelling.
• The role of the “significant” other in a home defense plan.
• Audio and visual target indicators
• Gun retention techniques for handgun, shotgun, and carbine.
• And much more…

We have had people email and ask if the course is going to be conducted in a dwelling and the answer is yes! Most of the class is hands on.

Please visit our website for more information and course dates. (www.right2defend.com)

We accept Visa, MC, or Discover and you can pre-register online.

Exciting Class Announcment

On April 12-13, 2008 (Saturday-Sunday) Rangemaster will host a unique training opportunity in Memphis for those serious about personal security. Southnarc, Ed Lovette, and Tom Givens will each teach segments involving their personal specialties, and students will rotate among these trainers, getting an incredible amount of information and skill in one weekend.
Southnarc served in the US Army Rangers before entering law enforcement. He is currently the commander of an inter-agency drug enforcement task force and a SWAT Team leader on the Gulf Coast. For a number of years he did undercover drug work, resulting in a number of serious physical assaults on him. These assaults included “rip-off” robberies, much like the robberies private citizens fall victim to every day. Southnarc is one of the most analytical trainers I have ever met, and as a result of these incidents he made a thorough study of such things as Pre-Assault Indicators, Weapon Access During an In-Progress Fight, Empty Hands Skills to escape from a grappling attack or multiple assailants, and more. He will be teaching these skills in two phases. “Managing Unknown Contacts” deals with the critical pre-fight processes involved in observing and assessing potential attackers; positioning to shift the advantage to you; verbal interaction; and decision making skills. These “pre-fight” activities often actually determine the outcome of the real fight, when it comes. More importantly, they often deter an assailant from carrying out a planned attack, as he realizes you are a harder target. The next phase will be Practical Unarmed Combat, which deals with proven, simple realistic techniques which can be learned and maintained without a lifetime in the martial arts. Southnarc’s skills are simple and straight-forward and work well.
Ed Lovette worked as a police officer for a number of years, including a period as a firearms instructor at the New Mexico State Police academy. He then joined the CIA as a paramilitary officer,retiring from that position recently after serving in hot spots all over the world. In the CIA, Ed often had to move through areas of great danger while keeping a very low profile. He developed two things in that arena- one, the ability to observe his surroundings and look for things that might tip him to coming troubles, and second, a fondness for a deeply concealed small frame revolver, often called a “snubby”. Ed will teach the observational and mental skills needed to spot threats ranging from stalkers to robbers and carjackers, based on his vast experience in counter-surveillance and stealth. He will also teach live-fire skills with the snubby revolver. Ed literally wrote the book on this subject. The Snubby Revolver, The ECQ, Backup, and Concealed Carry Standard, from Paladin Press is recognized as the authoritative text on the subject.
Tom Givens, chief instructor at Rangemaster, spent 25 years in law enforcement and specialized security work before becoming a full time trainer in 1996. Since then, Tom has trained thousands of students in armed self defense, and every year several Rangemaster students successfully defend themselves against armed attackers. Tom is an FBI and NRA certified law enforcement firearms instructor, a champion competitor in both IDPA and IPSC competition, a nationally recognized court expert on firearms training, and the author of several books, including Fighting Smarter. Tom will focus on handgun skills designed to work well under stress. Training will include effective gunhandling and marksmanship techniques, stress inoculation, fast but precise shooting skills in both daylight and low light conditions, and mental conditioning. Regardless of skill level, your shooting will improve as a result of this course.
Students will need a sidearm, quality holster and belt, at least three magazines for the primary gun, and 600 rounds of ammunition for the primary gun. A snubby or other backup gun is recommended, along with 250 rounds of ammo for it, and a suitable carry method. You will also need a good flashlight, like a Surefire 6P, 6Z, 8X or similar and street clothes, including a concealment garment. You will also need work-out clothes, soft shoes, a cup and a mouthpiece. We will supply workbooks and guns that fire marking cartridges. A detailed equipment list will be sent out prior to class. Ammo is available here or bring your own.
The cost of this course is $499.00. This is quite a bargain considering you’re getting three courses, from three well respected trainers, in one location. There are several hotels within blocks of Rangemaster, ranging from basic Extended Stay or Holiday Inn to a very nice Marriott. Call 901-370-5600 to register. Class size is limited.

For southern types who aren't checking www.louisianaselfdefense.com daily for updates

I just sent out the word about the class -

The email message -

May 8-10, 2008, *the* Louis Awerbuck will be teaching Tactical Shotgun here in Baton Rouge. This is a tremendous opportunity to train with one of the best instructors in the world, using the weapon that is considered his specialty. The flyer attached provides more info.

This class is open to anyone who is a law abiding citizen or law enforcement.

WE NEED TO GET A COUPLE MORE DEPOSITS BEFORE MARCH 15TH!!!!!

I've heard a couple consistent comments about this class, so let me address them -

1. "I'm interested, but don't have a shotgun, or don't have an appropriate shotgun."

No biggie - I can lend you a gun if you need one, but your gun may be more appropriate than you think. Awerbuck suggests the humble Remmy 870 for the class, but any mainstream shotgun will do, pump or auto.

2. "I want to take a training class, but I'm not interested in the shotgun specifically."

If you haven't trained before, or haven't take a class with long guns - 80% of the material is the same as far as the tactics. The class will specifically address what the shotgun can and can't do as opposed to a rifle. This material translates well.

MORE IMPORTANTLY, this is an opportunity to work with one of the best instructors in the world on your mindset. By all accounts and endorsements, Awerbucks lecture alone is worth the cost of admission. This guy is one of the top in the world, hands down.

I can't stress enough that if we don't fill these classes, instructors like this will not come to the area.

XXXXX of the XXXXX and I go through a lot of effort as volunteers to put these classes together. This is *world class* training in our backyard - no need for airfare, hotels, rentals, meals out... all you need is a couple hundred bucks of ammo and you are good to go.

PLEASE take advantage of this training opportunity so that we can continue to bring in other trainers! We're hoping to get Tiger Mckee back this fall for a carbine class...

Thanks,

Paul

PS - I'd appreciate any feedback from anyone who would take the class, absolutely committing, if it were a handgun format instead of shotgun.


More detail on the class -


Tactical Shotgun Class

Taught by Louis Awerbuck

May 8-10, 2007 Baton Rouge, LA

The course also covers ammunition selection, loading and unloading, reloading and ammunition selection while involved in a shooting scenario, shooting from several ready positions and various tactical body positions, dim-light and flashlight shooting, shooting on the move, moving targets, multiple targets and weapon retention.

We are pleased to announce that we are opening a training facility in Dayton, OH. The facility is not a shooting range. It is an indoor facility in which we can teach year round. Our Home Defense course (www.right2defend.com/hd.htm) is growing on a regular basis. So much that we are going to hold at least one class a month, and as it continues to grow (which we know it will) we will offer more classes. The training facility will have a mock house (1,200 -1,500 sq ft.) with movable walls in it in order to change floor plans, as well as to provide space for other training that we provide.

Force on Force training (www.right2defend.com/itccourse.htm) is another item that we are going to be offering out of this facility. We feel that Force on Force training is extremely important in truly preparing oneself to handle a life threatening situation with confidence and maximizing their chances of survival. Please visit our website for Force on Force course descriptions (www.right2defend.com/itccourse.htm). We have made this training very affordable compared to most others who offer this type of training! As you would expect, our training is nothing short of high caliber!!!

Those of you who are within about an hour or so drive from Dayton, we have made attending training opportunities on a regular basis easy and affordable! For those of you who are not within an hour or so drive, we encourage you to make the drive to come and train with us. We promise you that it will be worth the drive!

The first course will be taught out of the facility on May 11th, 2008. Our Home Defense course (www.right2defend.com/hd.htm) is the course that is going to be taught at least once a month. Force on Force courses (www.right2defend.com/itccourse.htm) will begin in June, 2008. In the near future we will be offering these courses more often as well.

We have chosen to teach the Home Defense and Force on Force training at this facility because these are courses are a MUST for anyone who is serious about protecting them selves and those you love!!! Other courses that we are going to be offering at this facility are gun retention, blade craft, hand-to-hand, and expandable baton. Basically anything that we offer that is not live fire.

Innovative Tactical Concepts is not just a “gun focused” school. We are a TRUE FIGHTING SCHOOL and this is what makes our training unique.

Depending upon the response we get, we may offer courses during the week for those who cannot make it on the weekends. So, please be sure to check our training schedule on a regular basis or inquire if you have three or more people who want to take a course during the week.

Not only do we provide some of the most realistic and practical training available, we develop relationships with our students. We don’t just take your money and forget about you until we have another class coming up and hit you with emails. Our students spend good money to come and train with us, and we make every effort possible to maintain contact with them and hold them accountable to developing a home defense plan, and training on a regular basis with their newly found skill set from whatever course it was they took. We care about your life and we want you to continue to train on your own, and some people need a little encouragement.

With that in mind, when you come to train with us, bring someone you know. There are two reasons for this. The first one is because at least you will know someone there and you will be more likely to attend a course. Secondly, once you leave, you will have someone to train with and help motivate you to keep training.

As always, train hard, train often, and train REALISTICALLY!!! And we are doing what we can to provide you with realistic and practical training at and affordable price, the rest is up to you.

Class Description:
Aim Fast, Hit Fast is intended to pick up where most marksmanship training ends. All shooting involves a balance between accuracy and speed. Time allows us to concentrate on proper sight alignment and a slow, deliberate trigger pull for maximum precision. Therefore, the faster we are forced to shoot, the less accurate we expect to be. Away from the practice range, a shooter does not get to choose how much time he will get to break a shot … shooting becomes reactive and all timeframes are determined by the situation rather than comfort or habit.

The goal of this class is twofold. First, we will come to understand the critical balance between accuracy and speed for each individual shooter. Second, we will improve each shooter’s ability to deliver accurate, rapid fire in shorter timeframes to maximize his effectiveness shooting a pistol under stress. Skills to be covered include marksmanship, presentation from the holster, reloads, multiple targets, and shooting on the move.

Dates: August 9-10, 2008
Cost: $265* (* $100 discount for first two certified EMTs who sign-up)

ShivWorks will be offering their excellent PUC and ECQC 1&2 class on October 3, 4, 5 in Houston. This is probably the only time this year these classes will be offered in Texas.


The PUC class will be Friday evening and the ECQC class will be Sat. and Sunday.

Here are the class descriptions

PUC class.

The ShivWorks Practical Unarmed Combat core concepts module is a 4
hour fundamental block of instruction that introduces the student to the
parameters and context of criminal assault. The student will learn how criminals
actually assault citizens in the real world and will initially focus on strategies and
tactics for challenging and preempting the potential assailant. The instruction will
then shift to immediate action procedures for spontaneous assault and how to
regain initiative with non-stylized basic tools.




ECQC 1-2 class.

The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I & II (ECQC 1&2) course is a 20 hour block of instruction which focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to
building functional, combative handgun skills at zero to five feet. The course is
designed to instill core concepts of seamless integration and provide the platform
for aggressive problem solving during a life or death struggle. A heavy emphasis
is placed upon commonality of body mechanics between skill sub-sets, which
means that all combative software is reinforcing. Once the student’s skill sets are
initially ingrained, the participant will be stress inoculated with force on force drills
utilizing man-marking cartridges and protective equipment.




Students can take one or both classes. There is no previous martial arts experience required to attend the PUC class. The ECQC class is not recommended for beginning shooters.

The PUC class is a 4 hour module and the ECQC 1-2 is a 20 hour course. The PUC course is $100 and the ECQC course is $400.
Students need to mail a %50 deposit to secure a slot.

The class size is limited to ensure a quality learning experience.



People can contact me( Glockfan AT comcast DOT net) for additional questions or to reserve a slot in the class.

Regards,
Ferrell

RIFLE CLINICS THAT CELEBRATE THE CONSTITUTION
September 13th and 14th, 2008
Learn to shoot or improve your shooting skills.
Any rifle will work, but semi-autos are easier to master.

The Constitution was signed on September 17th, 1781 by the delegates to the Constitutional Convention. This document, along with the Bill of Rights, contains the rules and regulations for our Republic. There are many people that believe this is the most important document in Human history.

However, we (the American public) have allowed the anniversary of this important date to be forgotten. This date should be celebrated with as much, or more gusto, than July 4th.

With these thoughts in mind, the Revolutionary War Veterans Association are putting on a number of RIFLE CLINICS around the nation. But that’s not the best part; women, children and young adults under 20 attend FREE of RWVA fees (some ranges charge a nominal daily fee).

These clinics will be held in Puryear, TN - Raton, NM - Piru, CA - Three Forks, MT - Davilla, TX - Long Lake, WI - New Breman, NY.

The bad news is: THERE ARE LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE at these events.
REGISTER NOW.

COMBAT FOCUS SHOOTING
With ROB PINCUS

December 8th & 9th 2008

Prerequisite: Basic Pistol Course
Class Size: 15 Students Max
Instructors: Rob Pincus & Adjunct Staff Instructors

Combat Focus is an intuitive shooting program that is based on the study of empirical evidence from real violent encounters and builds on the body's natural reaction to an attack. At the ranges that gun fights typically occur, Combat Focus is the most effective way to engage your threat with a handgun. This two day course empowers students by encouraging them to embrace their bodies natural reaction to a lethal threat and work with it to neutralize that threat as efficiently and effectively as possible. The Combat Focus Technique is not hip-shooting, in fact, the only significant difference between using this technique and sighted fire is the focus of your attention at the moment the trigger breaks.

You are much more likely to be caught off-guard by an aggressive attacker in close quarters and low-light than you are to be confronted by a truly lethal threat in broad daylight standing 30 yards away in front of a dirt berm.

This course is features a significant amount time discussing what happens during dynamic encounters and dissecting each shooters performance.

Ammunition Requirements: 1,500 rounds (minimum) of factory loaded ammunition.
Perroni’s Tactical Training Academy will not be selling ammunition at this course.

Gear List: Pistol, hip holster, three magazines, magazine holders, sturdy belt, wraparound eye protection, ear protection, Baseball type cap.

Course Cost: $400.00


The Classroom portion of the class will be held @ PTTA Classroom 1380 Central Park Blvd Suite 208 Fredericksburg, Va. 22401. 9:00am The Range portion will be held at The PTTA Range in Stafford. For more information or to register for this course contact Tom Perroni:

I have a few more things in the works and I will get them on the schedule as soon as I nail them down.

Everyone keeps asking me about an advanced PSP course or a PSP2. Guys.....the advanced course is already there.....it's called "PSP Fighting at Night!" The original PSP course is one of the most advanced handgun course that I have ever heard of. "PSP Fighting at Night" takes it to an entirely different level.

If you are serious.....get serious and take it into the night.

For those that may be considering training with me, but are not sure of it yet, here is the link to my first book. It will be available on December 20.

http://www.shivworks.com

February 27, 28, March 1, 2009 in Phoenix, AZ

The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I & II (ECQC 1&2) course is a 20 hour
block of instruction which focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to
building functional, combative handgun skills at zero to five feet. The course is
designed to instill core concepts of seamless integration and provide the platform
for aggressive problem solving during a life or death struggle. A heavy emphasis
is placed upon commonality of body mechanics between skill sub-sets, which
means that all combative software is reinforcing. Once the student’s skill sets are
initially ingrained, the participant will be stress inoculated with force on force drills
utilizing man-marking cartridges and protective equipment.

Topics covered include:

Block One
• Diagnostics
• Introduction to the components of the Combative Drawstroke
• Building the pectoral index in live-fire
• Firing throughout the horizontal line of presentation
• Off-hand fending positions
• Default position
• Basic empty hand blows
• Theory of in-fight weapon access
• Grounded basics

Block Two
• Challenging the potential attacker
• Preemptive weapon access
• Muzzle aversion within draw-stroke
• Negotiating the F.U.T.
• ECQ Handgun retention in holster
• ECQ handgun retention out of holster
• Handgun recovery
• Handgun striking

Equipment Required
Holster
Pistol
Two magazines
Eye & ear protection
Heavy sweatshirt or soft body armor
Mouthpiece and cup
500 rounds of ammunition

Registration

Please sign-up via phone 602-625-2523 or email at Cecil.Burch@gmail.com

Course cost is $400 (payable by credit card or cash)

This class is not recommended for beginning shooters. Students should be relatively fit as this is a contact class. Most of the latter half of each day will be spent utilizing man marking cartridges and FIST helmets, to allow the students to gain confidence in applying their newly acquired skills against moving aggressive opponents.

Why wait for weeks to be crowded into a room with 60 strangers for four hrs. to get your CWP. You can have an NRA Certified firearms instructor, giving you your own private and personal CWP class for the same price you will pay at the gun store. I have been training shooters for over 25 years and have been shooting for over 35 years.

I also give private shooting lessons and first time gun owner consultations. Call us before you buy, we don't sell guns but we can help you pick the right firearm for your situation.

Due to the economy and the price of ammo, the PSP round count "minimum" can be adjusted to the individuals situation, preference, and goal. The more that I teach this course, the better I am getting at bringing the students skill to a very high level, with less and less ammo. What started as a 1800 round course, has comfortable changed to a 1500 round, and is now completely doable at a 1200 round course. This stream lining of the curriculuum leads me to believe that students will soon be able to shoot the PSP with 1000 rounds.

As I said, this is all up to you. You can shoot 1000 rounds or 1800 rounds. The students that shoots a higher round count will probably walk away with a more solid skill set. But if ammo expense is holding you back from taking the PSP, I am here to tell you that I can teach you what you need to know with 1000 rounds.

IMHO the physical skill sets (ie:shooting) are very important. But it is the intertwining of the physical skill sets with the mental aspect of the fight that is the true value of the course. This is what the course is all about. Once you own the concepts of what I teach, the actual "up keep" training expense to keep it ingrained is very inexpensive. This up keep can be done with .22 conversion kits and airsoft guns. As long as you understand the "grip continuum" and the effects of the convulsive grip on recoil control, you only need to shoot full powered live fire periodically.

Do not let the initial ammo expense keep you from learning the things that you need to know. Look at the big picture....the long run in ammo savings.

Threat Focused Pistol Quick Kill with Brownie

Introduction to drawing and shooting while moving out of the kill zone from 0-10 feet by 7677. Several important core concepts/components will be extensively covered under the guidance of all three instructors which will allow the student the best chance to successfully negotiate the time/distance problems faced on the streets.

Extreme Close Quarters hand to hand [ H2H ] skills which lead to integrating the pistol into the fight by all three instructors. This portion will also cover training in various physical skills for the gun disarm and gun traps by all three instructors.

Close Quarters H2H Defensive skills against a knife. This will be a round-table hands on segment where the students will have an opportunity to move among all of the instructors who will cover the best unarmed defensive edged weapons skills from different systems.

Force on Force with Airsofts utilizing the previously covered training from "in your face" out to 21 feet.

Since Matt, 7677 and I held the "Sightless in Tucson" event in October of 2005, we have all received constant requests to come together again for a H2H combatives class that would integrate the pistol skills and defensive edged weapons training into the mix. Here the chance to get hard core established real world skills from three instructors who are individually recognized for their various talents.

This course allows the student to learn effective close quarters street skills integrating the handgun and knife into the mix to survive an encounter in a two day package that's not only affordable but brings the talents of three instructors into one location.

Suggested Lodging

The range owner highly recommends the Super 8, Comfort Inn, or Brighton Inn (http://maps.yahoo.com/#mvt=m&lat=39.9723&lon=-104.818169&zoom=15&tt=motels&tp=1&q1=S.%25204th%2520Ave%2520at%2520E.%2520Bromley%2520Ln%252C%2520Brighton%252C%2520CO) in Brighton, CO that are closest to the range.

living outside the State of Utah, who would like the benefit of traveling outside NY
State with a concealed firearm in up to 33 states. While a NY State permit is NOT
required to take this course, the Utah permit is NOT VALID within NY State, and
therefore cannot be used to purchase, possess, transport, handle, carry or use a
firearm in NY State. Many NY State permit holders have a Utah multi-state
permit. When traveling out of state, check the current version of laws applying to
concealed carry. An unfortunate "brush with the law" outside NY State can affect
your status as a NY State permit holder. Act prudently and plan your trip out of
state with directions for travel -- and directions for legal concealed carry! Well
over 200 permits have been issued to New Yorkers through our courses. Permits
generally arrive at your door 60 to 70 business days after your paperwork is
received in Utah.

Check out http://www.bci.utah.gov for complete details on the Utah permit

The class focuses on seven key areas, taught in two sections:
Section I - handgun safety, operation, shooting fundamentals, safe handling.
Section II - Select sections of Utah Criminal & Traffic Code & US Federal
Firearms Regulations (Title 18, Chapter 44)

The following quick web link will give you all the details on the permit and its
acceptance across the USA: http://www.bci.utah.gov

PUC class.

The ShivWorks Practical Unarmed Combat core concepts module is a 4
hour fundamental block of instruction that introduces the student to the
parameters and context of criminal assault. The student will learn how criminals
actually assault citizens in the real world and will initially focus on strategies and
tactics for challenging and preempting the potential assailant. The instruction will
then shift to immediate action procedures for spontaneous assault and how to
regain initiative with non-stylized basic tools.



ECQC 1-2 class.
The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I & II (ECQC 1&2) course is a
20 hour block of instruction which focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to
building functional, combative handgun skills at zero to five feet. The course is
designed to instill core concepts of seamless integration and provide the platform
for aggressive problem solving during a life or death struggle. A heavy emphasis
is placed upon commonality of body mechanics between skill sub-sets, which
means that all combative software is reinforcing. Once the student’s skill sets are
initially ingrained, the participant will be stress inoculated with force on force drills
utilizing man-marking cartridges and protective equipment.

The class size is limited to ensure a quality learning experience.

The question is are you willing to bet your life and your family’s lives on what you THINK you know about protecting your home? For more info go to: http://www.OhioShootingSports.com

Home invasions are on the rise in the United States. Truth of the matter is that over two million homes are broken into EVERY YEAR! The reality of it is that in a ten year period you have a one-in-five chance of your home being invaded. In a twenty year period, you pretty much have a 50/50 chance of your home being broken into. Statistically speaking the most dangerous place for you to be is in your home!

OSS feels that it is extremely important for people to learn how to properly setup their home and how to protect those you love.

We will provide you guidelines for developing a home invasion plan as well as how to enhance your current plan. As with anything else, Home Defense BEGINS AND ENDS WITH MINDSET!

Most people have a false sense of security when it comes to personal safety and home safety. One reason that a lot of people don’t have a home invasion plan because they don’t think that “it will happen to them”. If you don't have a plan or execute that plan ON A REGULAR BASIS WITH THOSE YOU LOVE, then HOW do you expect to execute that plan when your lives may be in danger?

Now, whether or not guns are present in your home doesn’t mean there are not other tools available in the home to defend yourself with. Most of the information is valid whether or not you have a gun or guns in your residence. One of the most important things you can learn how to deter burglars from choosing your home.

Our Home Defense Course is designed to deal with three situations that you are likely to encounter.
1. The first one is that you are awakened in the middle of the night due to some sort of odd noise.
2. Secondly, you come home and find your home broken into.
3. Lastly, you enter your home unaware there is an intruder.

Home Defense Course Curriculum:

• Four layers of home defense.
• Discuss the three types of burglars.
• Communication: with loved ones and intruders
• Light intimidation (including the use of handheld tactical lights)
• Setting up your home for tactical advantages (including furniture, mirrors, etc.)
• Items needed in a safe room and how to position your loved ones in the safe room to reduce the likelihood of them being in the line of fire.
• How to effectively search your home with a handgun, shotgun, or carbine.
• What you need to take with you when searching your home.
• How to move quietly throughout your dwelling.
• The role of the “significant” other in a home defense plan.
• Audio and visual target indicators
• Gun retention techniques for handgun, shotgun, and carbine.
• And much more…The Group Home Defense Course is an 8 hour course.

The question is are you willing to bet your life and your family’s lives on what you THINK you know about protecting your home? Even if you learn just a couple of things that you didn’t know, it was well worth the price of the course which is a mere $110.00.

A large number of people carry knives on a daily basis. This course is designed to learn the basics of how to use your knife in a life threatening situation. Since knives are legal most everywhere this course is a must for those who carry a knife on a daily basis. http://www.OhioShootingSports.com

Fighting someone who has a knife is a very dangerous thing to do. Your opponent does not have to be skilled with a knife in order to inflict serious injury upon you. Contrary to popular belief, you are more likely to die from a cut or a stab than from being shot. Many people believe that if you cut or stab someone “in the right spot” they will die instantly. Truth of the matter is that they may have up to 90 seconds to injure or kill you although their wound may be fatal. Are you willing to bet your life on what you think you know about how to use a knife in a fight? This course is a must for anyone who carries a knife for self-defense purposes.

We will cover stance, cutting patterns, blocks and deflections including empty hand defense. You will have the opportunity to spar with others in order to practice your skills.

This course is a one day course and costs $125 Course length is 8 hrs.

Course Curriculum.
• Mindset
• Discussion regarding the elements of the fight.
• Understanding the limitations of the knife in a fight.
• Understanding how most life threatening situations really take place.
• How to properly deploy your tool into the fight.
• Fighting postures
• Proper grips
• Targeting
• Distancing
• Timing
• Angling
• How to deal with multiple attackers with knives or guns.
• And much more…http://www.OhioShootingSports.com

Most people cannot carry a gun legally everywhere they go. Therefore, it is important that you know how to defend yourself unarmed because odds are you may very well find yourself without a firearm when you are confronted by one or more assailants.

Fights almost never take place how most people think they do. That is, a fight is never fair and you will probably find yourself reacting to the situation very quickly as opposed to being able to think things through. Unlike most martial arts systems which rely on speed, power, and stamina, we will teach you how to defend yourself using natural body dynamics using the least amount of effort possible with maximum results.

As we get older our bodies do not move the same, and quite honestly some of us get out of shape. So, what are our options for defending ourselves? Well, that is exactly what this course is about. Participants are not required to be “physically fit” although it is an advantage.

In addition, a fight is not a toe-to-toe event. It is unlikely that you will be able to pull off some fancy technique that you may have learned in some martial arts system. Ideally you want to end the fight as quickly as possible. Our unarmed combatives course is designed to accomplish that goal. However, it is important that you have good fundamental skills to build upon.

We will teach you body dynamics that you can potentially knock someone back several feet and end the fight literally with one blow! In other words, all of the “flashy” things you may have learned in a martial arts system probably doesn’t work in the real deal. If you don’t have any martial arts background… GREAT! We will train you from the ground up - literally.

Course Curriculum.
• Mindset
• Understanding the elements of a fight
• Rituals of attack
• How fights really take place.
• Fighting postures
• Distancing (close, medium, and long)
• Timing (relative to distancing)
• Angling (Directions of movement)
• Punching and kicking effectively. No fancy kicks here!
• Elbow strikes
• Balance points and how to break someone’s balance
• Falling to the ground safely and getting back up.
• And much more… http://www.OhioShootingSports.com

I'll be hosting Todd Louis Green at the OKC gun club on May 1-2,2010.
The class will be Aim Fast Hit Fast.
You can contact me at my Email, spencerkeepers@yahoo.com .
This is going to one fun class!!


Class Announcement

Cost: $375
Non-refundable deposit of
$200 due by 1-Apr-10
Instructor: Todd Louis Green
Location: Oklahoma City, OK
Range: Oklahoma City Gun Club
Range fee: $25 for non club members

Class size: maximum 12

Class Description: Aim Fast, Hit Fast is intended to pick up where most marksmanship
training ends. All shooting involves a balance between accuracy and speed. Off the
practice range, a shooter does not get to choose how much time he will get to break a shot
… shooting becomes reactive and speed is determined by the situation rather than comfort
or habit. The goal of this class is twofold. First, to understand the critical balance
between accuracy and speed for each individual shooter. Second, to improve each
shooter’s ability to deliver accurate, rapid fire in shorter timeframes to maximize his
effectiveness shooting a pistol under stress. Skills to be covered include marksmanship,
presentation from the holster, reloads, multiple targets, and shooting on the move.
Prerequisites: This is a fast-paced class suited to shooters who have already achieved
proficiency with a handgun. At a minimum, prospective students should be capable of
performing the following drill(s) on demand:

• Fire and hit a 3×5 card at 5 yards on demand (both double and single action as
appropriate)
• Draw, fire 1 round, reload, fire 2 rounds (3 hits on 8” circle) at 7 yards in eight seconds

Individuals who cannot meet these requirements at the beginning of class will not be able to
keep up with the fast and demanding pace of instruction.
Equipment Needed:
• Reliable semiauto handgun
• Duty, range, or concealment holster with suitable gunbelt
• Enough magazines, pouches, etc., to carry a minimum of 50 rounds to the firing line
• Minimum 1,000 rounds of ammunition (1,200+ recommended; bring more, shoot more)
• Wrap-around eye protection; ear protection; brimmed hat
Instructor: Todd Louis Green has worked in the firearms industry since 1998, including
instructing for the NRA Range, Beretta, and SIG-Sauer. He has over 1,000 hours of firearms
and combatives training from such prestigious trainers as Ken Hackathorn, Ernest Langdon,
Larry Vickers, SIG Academy, and Blackwater. A 3-time “Advanced” rated shooter at Rogers
Shooting School, Todd is also a graduate of the NRA Tactical Pistol Instructor Development
program and a 3 division Master-ranked IDPA competitor. Todd is a certified SIGARMS,
Beretta, and Glock armorer; certified Simunition force-on-force instructor; and certified
Emergency First Responder. He is also a long time member of IALEFI, IDPA, and USPSA.

Upfront disclaimer, I don't work for CSAT, nor is CSAT teaching this class. I simply passed their tactical pistol instructors course in October, so I'm offering this as a CSAT certified instructor.

There was a thread kicking around on pistol courses over on AR15 a few days ago and I chimed in. There were some posts and PMs expressing interest in me teaching the course that I learned at CSAT in October. I'm thinking probably in either the Mar-May time frame. This will be held in the north Denver area, approximately 160th and I-25.

Some of this is to test out new equipment (video) and a couple of other things, so the cost will be minimal, (under 100.00, mostly to cover targets, materials, etc). You'll have to have modern, functional equipment and a fair amount of ammo (700 - 1000 rds). An important part is that unlike previous range sessions, this will have to be 2 consecutive weekend days, so if you can't commit to that, please don't speak up.

Approximate gear list will be:

- Pistol with 3 magazines (5 or more suggested)
- Belt with holster and magazine pouches (quality Kydex such as CompTac, Raven Concealment, Bladetech suggested)
- Weapon cleaning kit (cleaning rod, bore brushes, patches, rags, cleaning & lubricating oil, toothbrush)
- Hat, Rain or inclement weather gear
- Wraparound Eye and ELECTRONIC Ear protection (electronic ear pro is under 50.00 now)
- Water / Snacks (we’ll take an hour lunch break around noon, but we do NOT LEAVE THE RANGE)
- Sun Screen (non-greasy or water resistant recommended)

I suggest that you wear comfortable shoes, and clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.

Here is a list of folks currently signed up. Due to range size and limited personnel resources, we're limited to ten folks per class. The first class is full, but I'm building a standby list and we're already discussing a second class. Please let me know if you're interested andif so, send me an email so that I can put you on the distro list.

Hey everyone,

I'm currently a student at UCLA's business school and I'm doing some research for an idea in competitive shooting training. It’s a new technology developed in cooperation with the Marines near San Diego to train recruits and accelerate their marksmanship skills. It monitors EEG, EKG and breathing rates to help a user identify the optimal moment to take their shot.

Proven successful in research, the Marines have recently implemented it into Private level and upward training. We think it has potential in competitive shooting and law enforcement training. What we need is a little market research to gauge interest.

So we developed a short questionnaire (that does not require nor collect personal information) but will tell us a little bit about what the average shooters are interested in. It takes less than 5 minutes and has pictures of the product. I appreciate anyone who can take a moment to answer it.

The link:

As a side note, this is a legitimate request for an education based research project. If you are not interested, please disregard. But thanks in advance to anyone who can contribute.

Bill Jeans (Morrigan Consulting; www.morr-con.com )will be teaching a battle rifle class near Boise May 21-23, 2010. The class will be held in Emmett, Idaho, about 30 miles from Boise. Please contact me for further information: benglandcom.2 AT gmail.com

This intense course will supplement the student’s existing self-defense capabilities with the ability to strike a solid decisive blow at distance through use of the full-caliber battle rifle. The carbine, shotgun and pistol all have their place, but the full power rifle is the Queen of Battle. Course includes practical marksmanship, ballistics, gunhandling, continuity of fire, malfunction clearance, mental conditioning for combat, and more. Suitable rifles in this category include but are not limited to the M-1 Garand, M1A, FN FAL, HK 91, etc. Iron or optic sights are acceptable. Bolt action rifles are permitted, but not recommended. This is not a competition oriented course but is focused primarily on the use of the semi-automatic .30 caliber battle rifle for defensive purposes and is equally suited to law enforcement and private citizens. Most of the training will be at distances of 0-100 yards, but firing will extend out to 300 yards if rifles and sights permit. Carbine-class rifles (AR-15, 5.56 NATO, 7.62x39) are welcome, but call if in doubt. Pistol transitions will be employed.

Course fee is $500. Ammunition requirements is 400 rounds rifle, 50 rounds pistol MINIMUM.

Bill Jeans is a Marine Corps Vietnam veteran, long-term law-enforcement officer, and SWAT operator. He has been a firearms instructor since 1980 and is a former Rangemaster at Gunsite, besides teaching at Thunder Ranch.

Internet forums are a hard platform to get a point across as people have no feel for the intensity, the training or the combat mindset involved with Israeli Combat Training.

I invite and challenge anyone who has an interest in taking what they know about tactical shooting and combat mindset to a level that will allow them to push through the extreme psycological and physical stress of an attack. I train you to attack your attackers at every opportunity and to never give up.

Israeli Combat Training is not focused only on making sure you survive a fight.

Our focus is to train you to the point where when everyone else is running away from the active shooter attack, you are running towards the attack in order to prevent further killing of innocents. Not Rambo training...not hero training. Combat Training based on Israeli counter terror techniques.

If this is a level of mental and physical training you are searching for, please contact me for additional details.

Money tight? Don't pay me. If you like the training session, we can work out payment details for months to come. I do not care about immediate payment and I trust in your honesty.

This is my passion and this is what I do best.

I spent the better part of my adult life in Israel working with the security establishment (IDF infantry and Israeli Border Police.) That alone does not mean I am worth a damn but that is my experience.

Again, I challenge you to test me and I expect you to train hard and fight for your life.

Come and visit my website. Ask questions.

Louis Awerbuck of Yavapai Firearms Academy, Ltd. (“YFA”) will hold his Tactical Handgun-Stage II class at the Anvil Rock tactical range near Lewisburg, WV, June 4-6, 2010, (FRI.-SAT.-SUN.). The class is not a basic course and requires his tactical Stage I handgun course or the equivalent as a prerequisite. There are numerous other courses from several good instructors that can satisfy the requirement. The YFA website is www.yfainc.com for more information on Awerbuck, his training philosophy, course description, often imitated moving target systems and more.

All Awerbuck courses are defensive fighting with a firearm instruction, not solely shooting oriented. Tactical Stage II handgun uses a relatively high round count in YFA classes, and it encompasses practical marksmanship, gun-handling and tactical thinking. This is an opportunity to refresh your skill set for CCW carry, improve rusty skills from prior training and going beyond the basic level in tactical training within the Awerbuck training philosophy and technique.

The class costs $550 per space with an application and deposit of $325 received six weeks before course start. The ammunition guidelines are 800 rounds for the primary handgun and 150 for your back up handgun. Depending on the individual participant, some may expend a total of 800 rounds with primary and back up; others may shoot more or less. The range is an excellent facility for this kind of training and charges a daily range fee of $25.

Class sign up is through the class coordinator who can be reached at fogie71@msn.com or go to the website schedule section for more information at http://www.yfainc.com/schedule.html . Awerbuck is excellent at diagnosing and remedying shooters’ problems in equipment and/or technique.
For those interested in the tactical Handgun-Stage I, the prerequisite for any more advanced classes, there will be a tactical Stage I handgun at this same facility September 10-12, 2010.

Tactical Treatment of Gunshot Wounds

Our course is based upon Tactical Medicine principles, but while TacMed is designed for military/police tactical entry team members with specialized medical training, our course is for non-medical personnel who may become involved as primary responders to treat and stabilize victims of gunshot wounds. Originally designed primarily for firearm instructors, home owners/defenders and street police officers, we have also given this course to Federal and Local Law Enforcement Emergency Response Teams and as a Train-the-Trainer program for elements of the United States Marine Corps.

This is a shooting course combined with what you need to do immediately afterward to increase the survivability of gunshot wound victims, including yourself. Important topics include the Effects of Bullets on Human Tissue, Where to Shoot and How to Place Bullets with Surgical Precision. Following Threat Elimination, we teach How to Identify the three, major, life-threatening Injuries and How to Control Hemorrhage which is the major cause of preventable death from gunshot wounds. Accessing Emergency Medical Services and Maintaining an Emergency GSW Response Kit is also covered.

We think Tactical Treatment of Gunshot Wounds is an important skill that should be part of every shooter's armament.

Course curriculum is developed by Doc Gunn aka Anthony M. Barrera, M.D.

Instructor for this class is John S Farnam.

Guys & Gals,

Over the last year or so, we have been continually asked by students to hold a simple one day class that would encompass the use of shotgun / pistol or carbine (AR/ AK/ SKS ETC) / pistol techniques.

In other words “help me use these weapons TOGETHER in a realistic environment. Show me how they can (or can not) be used in real life scenarios”.

Scenarios discussed the most are working with these types of weapons in or around both buildings and vehicles, multiple target engagement, moving whilst shooting, moving though a home / building, penetration issues (show me what does and does not happen with various ammo), reloading and transitioning from one gun to the other etc.

So……..after much deliberation in creating “another class outline” and in response to these requests, we have decided to schedule 2 classes......specifically to address the above questions in one days training.

Both are 1 full day, on range classes held in Okeechobee County Florida.
Both will be held at OK Shooting Sports with Kill house & Vehicles.
Both classes will involve transitioning from long gun to handgun
Both classes will be limited to 15 student’s maximum.
Both classes will have a 5 - 1 Student to instructor ratio.

Please understand that by attending these classes, it will not make you an instant ninja nor will you be an "expert" in the tactical use of these weapons systems. What it will give you is the firsthand basic knowledge and understanding needed to then build on and train with to increase your skill sets.

Tactical Shotgun / Pistol Day Class: Full Day / $200
Date: Friday March 19th 2010
This course reviews both the positive and negative points of using shotguns for practical real applications.
Ammunition Required: 150 – 200 rounds of birdshot (7 – 8 shot), 25 rounds of buckshot and 25 rounds of shotgun slugs plus 200 pistol rounds minimum.
Prerequisites: Students must have basic firearms ability and knowledge.
Additional Equipment: Sling, Strong side holster, mag carriers, and shell carriers. Baseball cap and sun screen (sun protection), food and drinks, elbow and knee Pads, along with clothing that will allow for work on the ground (no open top shoes or v neck tops).

Carbine / Pistol Day: Full Day / $200
Friday April 2nd 2010
This all day course covers firearm specific anomalies, carry options and accessories, using cover, standing, kneeling and prone positions, shooting on the move, transitioning from carbine to pistol and pistol to rifle, shooting from cover, and reloading techniques including speed loads and tactical reloads.
Ammunition Required: 500 rounds rifle plus 200 rounds pistol minimum
Prerequisites: Students must have basic firearms ability and knowledge.
Additional Equipment: Sling, Strong side holster, and magazine carriers. Baseball cap and sun screen (sun protection), food and drinks, along with clothing that will allow for work on the ground (no open top shoes or v neck tops).

You can book online via our website or get more info by contacting me directly on 1 954 298 9103 www.floridafirearmstraining.com

Well, its finally here. Again, we'll be meeting at the Home Depot at
168th and Washington (basically I-25 and Highway 7) between 7:30 and

Again, here's the approximate gear list:

I’m looking for some other people to take a class from David Acosta, a world respected executive protection specialist/operative. He has an introductory class (20 hours from 6pm to ~10pm Mon-Fri) he’s willing to run in the Irvine area.

It’s packed with great info including the basics of surveillance, counter surveillance, tracking, CQB, etc. I was able to sit in on one class; the info was great but we had a lot of fun, too (real James Bond type stuff that promote a definite skill set in personal protection). The intro class gets you set for the full academy training (~160hrs for full EP certification where you can start booking jobs).

Anyone who signs up with me I’ll also take to Front Sight for their 4-Day Defensive Handgun course for free near Las Vegas.

I saw a www.Craigslist.org listing for a free training class for members of the security/corrections/private investigations(EP/close protection specialist) industry. SPAZ LLC is a firearms/security training complex in the SW/FT Myers area of Florida.
The class runs from 800am-1200pm and all related material(training weapons, protective gear, training rounds, etc) are all free, ;).
Fri, 11/12/2010 is the only day listed by SPAZ LLC for this free training event.
If you work as a armed professional(LE, armed security, corrections, etc) and want to take a free training class using simulated paintball type rounds(Simmunitions) then you may want to look into it.

NOTE; Im not a manager, owner or employee of SPAZ LLC and I have not taken any classes there. This post is for information only and any details are subject to change. See www.SPAZllc.com for class details.

Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I and II (ECQC I-II)
The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I & II (ECQC 1&2) course is a 20 hour
block of instruction which focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to
building functional, combative handgun skills at zero to five feet. The course is
designed to instill core concepts of seamless integration and provide the platform
for aggressive problem solving during a life or death struggle. A heavy emphasis
is placed upon commonality of body mechanics between skill sub-sets, which
means that all combative software is reinforcing. Once the student’s skill sets are
initially ingrained, the participant will be stress inoculated with force on force drills
utilizing man-marking cartridges and protective equipment.


Topics covered include:

Block One

• Diagnostics
• Introduction to the components of the Combative Drawstroke
• Building the pectoral index in live-fire
• Firing throughout the horizontal line of presentation
• Off-hand fending positions
• Default position
• Basic empty hand blows
• Theory of in-fight weapon access
• Grounded basics

Block Two

• Challenging the potential attacker
• Preemptive weapon access
• Muzzle aversion within draw-stroke
• Negotiating the F.U.T.
• ECQ Handgun retention in holster
• ECQ handgun retention out of holster
• Handgun recovery
• Handgun striking


Equipment required
Holster, pistol, two magazines, eye & ear protection, heavy sweatshirt or soft
body armor, mouthpiece and cup, 500 rounds of ammo.
Course cost is $400. This class is not recommended for beginning
shooters and prior documented training or instructor approval is required.
Students should be relatively fit as this is a contact class. Most of the latter half
of each day will be spent utilizing man marking cartridges and FIST
helmets, to allow the students to gain confidence in applying their newly acquired
skills against moving aggressive opponents.

MARCH 5th - 6th
WHERE: Red River West
15 Minutes Outside
Gainesville, Texas
COST: $400
50% Deposit Required Details upon registration
The Noveske Shooting Team 3 Gun Training class is unlike any other program currently taught. This course was developed entirely by Jansen Jones and Rob Romero as an interactive class to improve a shooters match performance and enhance their match finishes at multi gun as well as rifle and shotgun matches. The class was founded on the concept that it would be a class we would want to take ourselves. Through the use of our unique micro block curriculum and instant video feedback, students will see improvement before the end of the first day.
We expect each participant to treat the class like a match; the class will be broken down into mini stages, micro blocks of instruction focusing on key 3 gun concepts (shotgun reloading, barricade/port shooting, stage breakdown etc.), a man versus man shoot off session and even an actual prize table thanks to our sponsors Noveske Rifleworks, Schmidt- Bender, TroyInd, Nighthawk Custom, and more! Your paying for a class that costs as much as a major match and our goal is to provide the student with as much of a match experience as possible all while improving your 3 gun game. This class is for the intermediate level student and will offer a focused instruction on skills, strategies, and stages of 3 Gun Competition. Immediate action drills, unconventional shooting techniques and barricades are all discussed in depth. Steel, paper, flippers, texas stars and plates are all engaged at contact distance out to 100 yards.
Noveske rifles will be provided should a student need one. Shotguns can be provided if enough notice is given.

Louis Awerbuck will have 3 courses for 2011 near Lewisburg, WV:

Tactical Handgun-Stage I on June 3-5, 2011 (Fri.-Sat.-Sun.), this is YFA’s basic course for the handgun. There is no prerequisite for taking this class and the ammunition requirement is 500 rounds. Part of the instruction is with a back up gun, so bring one if you wish—not required but recommended. Because of the long period of daylight, there will be no night shoot for this course.

Tactical Shotgun-Stage I on September 5-7, 2011 (Mon.-Tues.-Wed.), Louis is well known for his shotgun class, and this is the basic for the fighting shotgun. There is no prerequisite for the class. There will be a night shoot; therefore, a light is required. Ammunition requirement is 400 birdshot, 50 buckshot and 70 slugs. For those with prior handgun training, bring 50 rounds with the handgun for transition drills (shotgun to pistol).

Handgun HITT Lowlight/Night on September 9-11, 2011 (Fri.-Sat.-Sun.), this is a special class designed to cover specific topics (HITT stands for high intensity tactics & training) and requires Tactical Handgun-Stage I, or equivalent, as a prerequisite. The first two days of instruction will begin in the afternoon because the emphasis will be on low light and night shooting which comprises a high percentage of shooting confrontations. After a review and refresher of the basic handgun skills, the effort will be drill and scenario driven to include a live fire session in the shoot house (room clearing) and, time-permitting, car and sitting at a table/desk (active shooter type) experiences. Obviously not all scenarios and drills can be or will be at night, but the night sessions will provide a solid skill set for engagement after dark in any scenario. The agenda will require relatively significant instruction (talk) time and above average downtime so patience and attention will be required. The ammunition requirement is 550 rounds with a back gun if you have prior instruction transitioning to back up guns.

You can find more course descriptions at http://www.yfainc.com/courses.html .

Costs

The course fee will be $550 with a deposit of $350 (balance of $200 due on the first day of training) received at least 45 days before the class start-payable to YFA. The facility charges a range fee of $25 per day or $75 for the 3-day course payable to Anvil Rock LLC. Personal checks are accepted along with cash but NO credit cards.

Ammunition as required per the course requested. 350 rounds minimum for Handgun I, and 450-500 rounds for Handgun II/III is the recommendation.

Spare magazines (2, at least)

Spare ammunition pouches, carrier, or magazine holster

Method of carrying and concealing the handgun (i.e.- suitable belt and belt holster, jacket, vest, etc. Shoulder holsters generally not acceptable- you "sweep" others when drawing the firearm)

Ear and eye protection

Clothing suitable for the weather ("There is no bad weather, just bad clothing!" -Pat Goodale)

Cap with a brim

Rugged shoes or boots

Lunch and drinks

Optional comfort items (rain gear, camera, sunscreen, knee/elbow pads, etc.)

Quality (SureFire-type) flashlight (if required by the course)

*Note: Defensive Handgun Courses may be taken individually on different dates, or as a two or three day course. Admission to Defensive Handgun II and III require successful completion of the appropriate previous level of instruction or an equivalent course taken elsewhere. Students must demonstrate the skills appropriate for the level of the course being taken.

I'm looking forward to running and gunning at the Tactical Handgun Workshop with the guys from Tactical U (http://www.tacticalu.com/index.php) this weekend. This will be my 3rd course with this team of highly professional instructors and I can't recommend them enough. The Advanced Urban Assault Rifle Workshop was extremely worthwhile. All dynamic, hands-on, practical and realistic training. I've seen everyone from novice to professionals come out and train with these guys and everyone has been very impressed.

Some spots may still be available for the upcoming courses. Come check it out at Pop's Gun Club (http://www.popsrange.com/pdf/Pops-TacU-POPS-Flyer.pdf) Sunday.

========================================================

Although we have the RIGHT to Keep and Bear Arms, many state governments have turned this right into a privilege, and some states withhold this “privilege”. A rational course of action is to obtain the gun licenses that will legally enable you to carry in as many states as possible. Practically speaking, this is up to 35 states.

Let us help you acquire the most useful Multi-State Concealed Firearms Permits in the United States - the closest thing to a National License To Carry Firearms. Our 31-State Non-Resident Carry Permit Class provides a "one-stop shop" for law-abiding gun owners to do all the paperwork needed to apply for both the Florida and Virginia Non-Resident CCW permits.

FLORIDA NON-RESIDENT MULTI-STATE CCW PERMIT
The Florida Permit is now valid for 7 years! The Virginia Permit is valid for 5 years. And the Florida Non-Resident CCW permit is recognized by 31 STATES:
Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wyoming

VIRGINIA NON-RESIDENT MULTI-STATE CCW PERMIT
The Virginia Non-Resident CCW permit is recognized by 22 STATES:
Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia

The value of obtaining the Virginia CCW Permit in addition to Florida’s is that it serves as a back-up given that state attorney generals’ inter-state reciprocity agreements change unpredictably. When you acquire the Virginia permit, you are covered should certain states drop out of their agreements with Florida and vice versa.

ONE STOP SHOP:
We supply all the necessary services in one place, for your convenience, so that you do not have to run around: application packets, assistance in completing all forms, notary, required passport photos, fingerprinting, and the required handgun safety and concealed carry class which includes a live fire range qualification. After class completion, you’ll receive a Certificate of Training which you must include in your application packets.

NEW: At each class location, we now also offer a separate class for the valuable UTAH NON-RESIDENT 29 State Carry Permit. You can take this class in addition to the Florida and Virginia Carry Permit Class. The additional fee for the Utah class is $150. payable in cash at the class.

35 STATES:
With the Florida, Virginia AND Utah non-resident gun licenses, you are good to carry in 33 states. Add New Hampshire and Maine, which can be done by mail order, AND you are up to 35 states.

Our program is intended to assist honest gun owners in exercising their Second Amendment rights, by making Florida and Virginia Non-Resident Multi-State Carry Permits obtainable by all qualified law abiding citizens, including New Jersey, New York, Maryland and Delaware residents. Even residents of "gun friendly" states such as PA who hold their own state's license to carry firearms, can benefit from the expanded coverage afforded by the Florida and Virginia carry permits.

How To Calculate Your Class Fee:

* If you want to apply for BOTH the Florida and Virginia Non-Resident Carry Permits AND you need the Basic Handgun Safety Class, your fee is: $150 (Recommended).
* If you want to apply for BOTH the Florida and Virginia Non-Resident Carry Permits but you do NOT need the Basic Handgun Safety Class, your paperwork only fee is: $100.
* If you want to apply for ONLY the Florida Non-Resident Carry Permit AND you need the Basic Handgun Safety Class, your fee is: $100.
* If you want to apply for ONLY the Virginia Non-Resident Carry Permit AND you need the Basic Handgun Safety Class, your fee is: $100.
* If you want to apply for ONLY the Florida Non-Resident Carry Permit and you do NOT need the Basic Handgun Safety Class, your paperwork only fee is: $50.
* If you want to apply for ONLY the Virginia Carry Permit and you do NOT need the Basic Handgun Safety Class, your paper work only fee is: $50.

PLEASE NOTE:
If you are Retired OR Active Duty Law Enforcement, OR Honorably Discharged OR Active Duty Military, you do not need to take the Basic Handgun Safety Class. In place of a Certificate of Training from us, you will need to include in your application packets: a photocopy of your military honorable discharge papers, OR a photocopy of your DD-214, or a copy of your Military I.D., OR a certificate of completion of any firearms course offered by an NRA Certified or Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor. The instructor's name, training classification, and NRA number must be legible. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BRING THESE PAPERS WITH YOU TO CLASS.

The fees for our services do not include the $117. fee (certified check or money order) that the State of the Florida charges for the seven-year Concealed Carry Weapons/Handgun License, or the $100. fee (certified check or money order) that Virginia charges for their five-year carry license. DO NOT BRING THESE FEES TO THE CLASS.

We have offered this class to thousands of students in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Rhode Island since 2008. Come take a class with us and see why Proactive Shooters is the leader in Utah permit training in the area.

This class is classroom lecture only and there is no shooting requirement or range time required to obtain this permit. The only way to apply for the Utah permit is by taking this class, taught by a Utah certified instructor. Utah does not accept any other form of training towards applying for the permit.

The cost of the class is $85.00. A student manual will be provided. Proactive Shooters will also supply the necessary fingerprint card (prints may be obtained locally by the student elsewhere after the class - most law enforcement agencies offer this service for $5-10).

You must register to reserve a seat in this class. Registration can be conducted online by visiting our website link -

http://proactiveshooters.com/register-utah-concealed-firearm-permit-class-chantilly-va/

When you complete this online registration form, click "SUBMIT". You will then be redirected to a payment screen where you may pay with a credit/debit card. Credit card payments are processed through Paypal. You may use your Paypal account or simply choose the option to make a one time credit card payment without signing into Paypal.

Practical Firearms Training (PFT) 3-Day Precision Rifle – September 23-25, 2011 – Billings, MT

Instructor: Pat Goodale
Class Dates: September 23-25, 2011
Location: Billings, MT

Pat Goodale, the owner and chief instructor of PFT, is a professional firearms instructor and consultant with more than 35 years of experience.

http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa164/tacman71/Course%20Announcement%20Photos/triad-transparent-large.png

Pat served for 22 years in the U.S. Marine Corps as an Intelligence and Special Operations Officer, and as a Weapons and Tactics Instructor. Since leaving the Marine Corps, Pat has worked extensively in the tactical training, security and personal protection fields for a number of international companies. His experience as an instructor covers the entire spectrum of modern small arms.

Pat Goodale 3-Day Precision Rifle – September 23-25, 2011 – Billings, MT

If you have been looking for a "real world" precision rifle course, this is it. While we all like to ding steel or shoot sub-minute groups at a 1000 yards while laying on our bellies and waiting for the perfect conditions both physically and environmentally, Pat makes it very clear that this is not the norm and a that most schools of thought are misled on this. Position shooting is critical and while prone shooting is the industry standard it is not the real world standard. Operationally the shot will be made on “Target Time” not shooter time. This class is not categorized as a “sniper” school and Pat does an excellent job at keeping a clear picture drawn for all the shooters in the class as to what the real world engagements are most likely to be for the military, police and civilian shooters.

During this course you will gain a thorough exposure to precision rifle use, including the following topics:

Fundamentals of safety
Manipulation
Rifle theory

I will be hosting Todd Green at the South River Gun Club Mar 31-Apr 1 for his Aim Fast Hit Fast Class

The cost total with range fees will be $450.00 non refundable deposit of $200.00

Instructor: Todd Louis Green
Location: Covington, GA
Facility: South River Gun Club
Class size: maximum 12



Class Description: Aim Fast, Hit Fast is intended to pick up where most marksmanship training ends. All shooting involves a balance between accuracy and speed. Away from the practice range, a shooter does not get to choose how much time he will get to break a shot … shooting becomes reactive and all timeframes are determined by the situation rather than comfort or habit. The goal of this class is twofold. First, we will come to understand the critical balance between accuracy and speed for each individual shooter. Second, we will improve each shooter’s ability to deliver accurate, rapid fire in shorter timeframes to maximize his effectiveness shooting a pistol under stress. Skills to be covered include marksmanship, presentation from the holster, reloads, multiple targets, and shooting on the move.

Prerequisites: This is a fast-paced class suited to shooters who have already achieved proficiency with a handgun. At a minimum, prospective students should be capable of performing the following drill(s) on demand:

• Fire and hit a 3×5 card at 5 yards on demand (both double and single action as appropriate)
• Draw, fire 1 round, reload, fire 2 rounds (3 hits on 8″ circle) at 7 yards in eight seconds

Individuals who cannot meet these requirements at the beginning of class will not be able to keep up with the fast and demanding pace of instruction.

Equipment Needed:
• Reliable semiauto handgun
• Duty, range, or concealment holster with suitable gunbelt
• Enough magazines, pouches, etc., to carry a minimum of 50 rounds to the firing line
• Minimum 1,000 rounds of ammunition (1,200+ recommended; bring more, shoot more)
• Wrap-around eye protection; ear protection; brimmed hat

Instructor: Todd Louis Green has worked in the firearms industry since 1998, including instructing for the NRA Range, Beretta, and SIG-Sauer. He has over 1,000 hours of firearms and combatives training from such prestigious trainers as Ken Hackathorn, Ernest Langdon, Larry Vickers, SIG Academy, and Blackwater. A 3-time “Advanced” rated shooter at Rogers Shooting School, Todd is also a graduate of the NRA Tactical Pistol Instructor Development program and a 3 division Master-ranked IDPA competitor. Todd is a certified SIGARMS, Beretta, and Glock armorer; certified Simunition force-on-force instructor; and certified Emergency First Responder. He is also a long time member of IALEFI, IDPA, and USPSA.

At some time or another, you have probably visualized how you will respond in a self defense situation. If you are like most gun owners, you see yourself “rising to the occasion” and performing flawlessly. Flawless draw. Flawless sight alignment. Flawless trigger control.

However, this is not realistic. Threats never happen when or how you think they will. You will be frightened. You will experience tunnel vision. Your fine motor control will vanish and your brain will turn to mush. All that will remain is instinctive muscle memory.

In other words, you won’t “rise” to the occasion. You will “sink” to the level of your training. If you only take a gun class now and then, you won’t have much muscle memory when you need it most.

That’s why ITC has started setting up monthly training groups in Indiana and Ohio. By attending a regular monthly class, you can learn good techniques and practice them repeatedly. So, when the time comes, your muscle memory will take over and you will have the ability to defend yourself properly.

Attending a monthly group can give you training similar to what we provide in our regular courses, but in a less intense and more frequent format. Each group session includes information and training in at least two topics, such as unarmed self defense, defensive knife, gun retention, gun disarms, etc.

Group training sessions are friendly, informal, and fun. You can come or go whenever you like. We don’t teach anything fancy, so you are welcome regardless of your age, skill level, or physical condition.

However, because our instructors must travel for these sessions, we require that on average a minimum of 20 people per session.

Cost is just $50 per month per person in advance or $75 the week of the session.

This is a head’s up for the Awerbuck YFA 2012 shooting courses near Lewisburg, WV, at the Anvil Rock range.

YFA Tactical Handgun-Stage II will be offered on June 1-3, 2012 (FRI-SAT-SUN). The class is a follow on from the level I (Stage I Handgun) that is a prerequisite (or the equivalent) for taking Stage II. It begins with a full review and warm up of the Stage I course skills on the morning of Day 1, then progresses to more complex and demanding drills. See http://yfainc.com/courses.html#handgun2 . This encompasses a lot of shooting (800 rounds) for an Awerbuck course and provides an extensive preparation for defensive fighting and concealed carry. There will be NO NIGHT SHOOT in this course.

YFA Tactical Rifle/Carbine will be offered on September 7-9, 2012 (FRI-SAT-SUN). This will be a full tutorial of the essentials for fighting rifle/carbine with handgun transitions (assuming you have taken a basic/Stage I handgun course). Most folks shoot the class with an AR-15/M-4 variant, AK-47 variant, Ruger Mini 14 etc.; however, bolt actions, lever actions and various .30 caliber semi-autos are used and appropriate as well. This is not a precision rifle class. See http://yfainc.com/courses.html#tacticalrifle . There will be a basic low-light/night instruction on the evening of Saturday, 8 September. An attached sling is mandatory for long gun in this course. Ammunition requirement is 600 rounds for the rifle and 100 rounds for the handgun transitions.

If you are interested, please go to the YFA Schedule page on the website, http://yfainc.com/schedule.html , look to the class co-ordinator on the right for Lewisburg, WV and contact him for details and course sign up.

Massad Ayoob will conduct his two-day MAG-20 course at Rangemaster in Memphis on July 14-15, 2012. This is a twenty-hour classroom course, from 8am-6pm both days in our modern air conditioned classroom. This is the same class as the legal portion of the old LFI-I course. The sub-title of the MAG-20 course is “Rules of Engagement for the Armed Citizen” and it is an immersion level course in the legal issues involved before, during, and after a violent confrontation. This class is suitable for anyone who carries a gun for self defense. Cost is $400.00. Call 901-370-5600 to register.

The following day, Monday, July 16, Tom Givens will offer an optional third day, all spent on the firing range. “Advanced Pistol Skills” is an intensive course designed to polish and hone your defensive shooting skills. Topics covered include rapid presentation from concealed carry; gunhandling techniques designed to work under stress; accurate fire at high speed; malfunction remedies; and more. You will fire 500 rounds during an exciting and challenging day of course work. Our range is air conditioned, so the July heat is moot. Cost is $200.00. You may take this course along with Ayoob’s class, or as a stand-alone class. This is not a beginner’s class.
