MN shooters Carbine training in north central MN

Attached you will find a training announcement on a rifle course that Dave and I are hosting through Timm Training and Consulting. Dave and I are both LE officers in the Brainerd Lakes area. We both have extensive backgrounds in firearms training, not only in law enforcement but also in the military (Mike) and competition shooting (Dave). We have conducted other courses in the past but this will be our first two day rifle course. We kept the price low as we know budgets are tight. This is ideal training for the patrol officer and departmental firearms instructor as well as quailified civilians.

The course will be held in the Breezy Point/Pequot Lakes(North central MN) area on June 29th and 30th 2013. Cost is $200. This course is POST approved for 16 credit hours. Class size is limited to 18 students.

Below are some areas of training we will be covering:

-Safe handling of a firearm and the rules of firearms safety
-Carbine Prep and Maintenance
-First and second line gear
-Carbine and gear configuration
-Ballistics and practical application in tactical/practical environments
-Fundamentals of Marksmanship
-Numerous practical shooting drills to develop fundamentals
-Drills to build and reinforce loading, operation, and effective
accurate delivery of rounds
-Ammunition management, and loading techniques and types
-Compression of fundamentals to build speed
-Malfunctions and clearing techniques
-Optic malfunctions and use of back up sights
-Movement, shooting on the move
-Shooting moving and reactionary targets
-Cover and Concealment
-Handgun transition, weapon selection

Carbine, Shotgun, & Pistol Training Courses - Brainerd Area
by Dave-HuldraArms on Wed May 15, 2013 12:06 am

Hi Everyone,

We are excited to have a great offering of training this year with multi-day courses in carbine, shotgun and pistol. We are also bringing back some training friends, top tier national trainers Louis Awerbuck ad Jeff Gonzales.

Here is our primary class training announcements for 2013, all classes are in the Brainerd Area. For more information please visit our webpage, linked below.

Tactical Shotgun 1 with Louis Awerbuck, August 3-4 $540
Louie is back and is bringing some shotgun skills with him. For those that have trained with Louie before you know what a great experience it is. As with the Stage I Handgun, this course is designed to create reflexive gunhandling, competent marksmanship and tactical thinking. In addition it places strong emphasis on learning what the shotgun will, and most particularly WILL NOT, do. The importance of patterning the shotgun properly is discussed at length. 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 (dependent on time of sundown and range restrictions), shooting on the move, moving targets, multiple targets and weapon retention.

Combative Pistol 2 with Jeff Gonzales, August 23-25, $625, plus local range fee
Jeff of Trident Concepts is also back to train with us this year, except this time we are offering a handgun course with Jeff.
The Combative Pistol, Level Two (CP2) is an intermediate 3-day course focused on hammering out the rough edges to the modern gunfighter. It will instruct the pistol’s core fighting skills by using full range sessions and high repetitions to continue forging correct technique. The course will progress to more challenging drills that will increase the student’s shooting speed and combat marksmanship. Graded evolutions throughout the course provide instant feedback to the student on skill development, technique deficiencies and overall ability. The linear progressive training exercises refines the combative fundamentals in order to progress to more advanced courses.

For more information, and to register, please don't hesitate to contact us or visit our webpage. Fast links to the above courses is available on the main page on the announcement tab on the right.

As many of you know, Mills Indoor Shooting & Archery is open and a phenomenal firearms range and retail shop. More training opportunities through the range, smaller one day classes, will be announced soon.

Thanks everyone and we look forward to training with you!

Dave & Mike
