This one day introductory course is a perfect complement to the Tactical Shotgun Course or women’s self defense course or the advanced concealed carry courses and is the basis for our Friday Night Fights and Gunfighter Match series. This course covers the basic fundamentals of Close Quarters Battle in a lone- shooter multiple threat scenario and requires that the student to have already attended a weapons course prior to this or be registered in the Gunfighter or Friday Night Fights series. Class sizes are small so that the maximum time is available to each student for hands on instruction and application drills. This course starts in the classroom and covers basic principles and fundamentals of the gunfight in the home and the application of weapons for defense of the home and then moves to the shoot house for practical hands on training with demonstrations of what effects weapons have in the structures in the home and what is truly cover or just concealment. This course requires the student to engage targets in close proximity, and requires shooting while moving so come prepared for a significant change in the way you have trained before. This course is limited to five students only. This course involves force on force use for training so come prepared to engage others; we will provide all force on force safety gear, training weapons and UTM ammo.
