Reality Based Tactical Handgun Courses

Whether you carry a handgun or keep one at home for personal protection, one of the most ignored and neglected responsibilities of owning a firearm is LEARNING HOW TO USE IT. We offer two individual and separate ‘Reality Based’ Handgun Courses; Tactical Handgun and Fighting Handgun.  (Go to Fighting Handgun) Tactical Handgun.  This is a basic one day, 6 hour course of instruction that introduces students to the basics of movement, barricades, structural searching, securing and the stresses of using a firearm under pressure. Students will learn first how to tactically and effectively move about inside a building as they search out, assess and if needed, engage targets. Not all targets will be threats so students will have to assess each target before they make the decision to engage it.   RAP4 Glock 19 training handguns are used during this course. These training firearms feel and act like the real ones and they can not fire real bullets so training is safe. Instead, they fire  .43 caliber rubber balls at 250 - 300 feet per second.  Similar to simunitions but uses hard rubber balls. there are no real guns used during this training. First part of this course students will search out and actually engage cardboard shoot/no-shoot targets. After a certain level of proficiency has been obtained, the cardboard targets are replaced by actual students. Now students have to search out other students during scenarios that will vary including; home invasions, hostage taking, knife attacks as well as robberies which may or may not result in possible assaults. If needed, students will engage other students in an actual gunfight using our rap4 handguns (as real as it gets without being in an actual gun battle. We call this ‘Force on Force/Reality Based Training. All students must wear protective equipment including face masks, gloves, hoodie or coat and role plays with other students as they act out realistic, possible life threatening scenarios Depending on the students, the last hour of the day is spent in low and no light conditions.  Federal statistics tell us that over 80 percent of shooting occur in low light or no light conditions.  However, with this being fact, it is amazing how many people do not and have never practiced shooting in the dark. Many of these same people watch too much TV and believe that shooting in the dark is easy and that practicing shooting in the dark is the same as shooting with the lights on.    They can not be more wrong, especially when there is someone hiding in the dark and wants to hurt you or worse, KILL YOU. Students will learn to search and secure a structure with little, if any light.  This becomes a real challenge as students realize that the dark is not their friend and that their  mega million candlepower flash light that is suppose to blind the bad guy long enough so they can accurately place a shot is an extremely dangerous piece of equipment as it tells the bad guy exactly where they are. This is a hard and aggressive course and will get your body pumped. Like with all of our courses, students must be in good physical condition. It’s hard to get more realistic training than this course without actually being in a real gun fight. You will learn to respect the dark and take nothing in the dark for granted.  *You must have a current FOID CARD  to take this course!! $100 NO AMMUNITION OR EQUIPMENT TO BUY Limited to Four Students **Private courses can be scheduled.
