We strongly recommend that you shoot at least approximately 300 rounds from your carry gun.

Taught by a paramedic with 14 yrs experience, and a responder to the Columbine High School Incident, this module will cover:
    • Introduction
    • Why is immediate care important
    • Combat wounding
    • How we die from wounds in combat and the order that we want to address wounds
    • Tourniquet and use of them (we will be using the C-A-T tourniquet)
    • Improvising a tourniquet (e.g. with a triangular bandage)
    • Direct pressure and wound management
    • Breathing

Suggested Lodging
  1. The range owner highly recommends the Super 8, Comfort Inn, or Brighton Inn in Brighton, CO that are closest to the range. He says they are very new, offering clean, spacious rooms.
  2. If you were to fly into Denver Int'l Airport, here is a map showing lodging near DIA (I'd tend to avoid the motels adjacent to I-70 and Pena Blvd.)
  3. Motels at E. 120th Ave at I-25 in Thornton, CO would be closer to downtown Denver, and also have a wider selection of restaurants and things to do Saturday night.
