WEAPONS TRAINING COURSES

  • The course is designed to effectively and efficiently return an acceptable level of proficiency to shooters whose skills have atrophied. The pace is fast and the level of instruction intense. A review of proper mindset and use of force sets the tone.
  • Weapon presentation, manipulation, malfunction drills, and a qualification completes the day of training.
  • Students must have well-developed weapons handling skills and be able to consistently demonstrate adequate marksmanship skills as a pre-requisite for this course.
  • This course is designed to develop the skills necessary to carry and effectively employ a concealed handgun in a hostile operational environment. It covers the full training spectrum from basic marksmanship and weapons manipulation through advanced shooting skills including barricade shooting, low-light shooting and weak-hand shooting and manipulation.
  • We include information on the physiological and psychological effects of startle, fear and imminent danger, equipment considerations, ‘profiling’, application of the force continuum and address what ramifications the loss of jurisdiction, authority and control has on the shooter’s decision-making process.
  • This course focuses on techniques required for personal protection during violent confrontations. It combines elements from our Sudden Violence and Defensive Handgun courses that enable students to successfully contend with multiple attacker situations, at close and varying ranges in the most likely of tactical situations.
  • Students utilize “personal weapons” (i.e., elbows, knees, hands) in order to create space and effectively exercise weapons retention techniques. The uses of less lethal “bridge” weapons, drawn under duress, with transitions to live firearms are exercised while students are exposed to direct attacks.
  • The course also explores alternative methods of weapons carry and concealment. Students are prepared for realistic confrontations with escalating levels of violence that span the use of force continuum.
  • This course is designed to develop fundamental marksmanship skills as well as tactical skills. The course covers the spectrum from basic marksmanship and weapons manipulation through advanced shooting to include barricade and vehicle shooting.
  • We include information on the physiological and psychological effects of startle, fear and imminent danger.
  • This course is designed to develop the skills necessary to carry and effectively employ a handgun & assault rifle in a hostile operational environment.

  • We include information on the physiological and psychological effects of startle, fear and imminent danger. We also cover application of the force continuum and address what ramifications the loss of jurisdiction, authority and control has on the shooter’s decision-making process.
