Advanced Handgun Skills, Baton Rouge

Last call!

Advanced Handgun Skills, 3 Day Format, Sept 10-12 2010, Friday through Sunday. Conducted at the LSU Police Range, St. Gabriel, Louisiana, near Baton Rouge. Class runs 9am-6pm all three days. Students will need about 1,500 rounds of ammunition.

This is NOT a beginner’s class. Students should have prior training in Rangemaster’s Combative Pistol 1, Gunsite 250, Thunder Ranch Defensive Handgun 1, Tactical Response Fighting Pistol, or equivalent. An IDPA Sharpshooter would be OK. The emphasis is on fast, reliable hits with a handgun under stressful conditions. We will also do some classroom work on how these skills come into play in defensive shootings, looking at some real world applications.

Lunch will be provided on site, to minimize lost training time. Tuition is $500. Call Lynn at Rangemaster, 901-370-5600 to register. Your primary instructor will be Tom Givens, assisted by other Rangemaster staff.

Executive Protection in Irvine, CA and Front Sight

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.

SPAZllc.com free special training event; Fri 11/12/2010....

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.

First Ever! NOVESKE 3-Gun Class - Gainsville,TX

NOVESKE SHOOTING TEAM
2 Day - 3 GUN CLASS
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.

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.

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.
