In this course, we study the distances in which gunfights actually occur, to include the psychological and physiological affects on those involved. With HANDS ON COACHING, you will train in context, and learn how to apply the correct skills under very high stress. You will learn realistic armed response to life threatening incidents, to include Counter Ambush and Active Shooter Response. This class has been described by past attendees as "unorthodox, and realistic". If you wish to learn real world skills, this is the class for you.
For this class, the student will need:
- semi-auto pistol in a 'service' caliber (9mm or better), 3 magazines
- sturdy waist holster
- two magazine pouches
- 400 rounds of ammunition
All shooting in this course is from concealment (uniformed LE exception). A proper holster for these classes should be of rigid construction, so that when the pistol is removed from the holster, the holster doesn't collapse. The holster should hold the pistol securely, to include covering the trigger guard.
Student's who attend Openrange's Advanced Handgun class prior to this class will receive a 15% discount on this class, plus member price off of a case of ammunition.
To learn more on holsters prior to class, please see an Openrange Instructor, and/or attend our Art of Concealment class.
Pre-Requisite: Openrange Intermediate class or equivalent training or experience - must be vetted by Instructor.
