Tighten your belt, eat your Wheaties and bring your homework (provided) and you might want to even pack a lunch. This new course for 2014 is not for the faint of heart. It is designed as a rapid immersion course for the novice shooter or hunter who wants to drastically increase their shooting skillset. We provide the expertise, equipment, ammunition and firearms, so all you have to do is show up and learn.
We will start with pistol and even if you are minimally experienced, we will give you the tools and drills to be able to shoot at speed, on the move, from retention and from the holster. Next, we will move on to the carbine where you will learn how to operate, deploy and hit a variety of targets from a variety of positions. The shotgun will be third where this high horsepower tool will help stretch your limitations with aerials, slugs, and shooting on the move. Last, we will move on to the bolt rifle where we will cover sight-in, wind, ballistics, positions and leads. Tactical, practical and hunting applications can all be addressed. Each student will shoot approximately 800 rounds in the course!
This course is designed for 2 people* (and only in Colorado on a Friday) and while it can be taken by just one person, it is best in pairs. For each weapon type, you will be shooting a minimum of 3 firearms and there are some choices that we will make together based on your goals (Defense, Competition, Hunting, LE). You will need appropriate eye and ear protection, healthy snacks, water, sunscreen, long pants, boots and a sturdy belt. An uncluttered mind is also essential.
There is about 4-5 hours of pre-class homework that should be completed no more than 7 days prior to class. The homework module, as well as the course workbook will be provided within 10 days of the scheduled range day. This course does satisfy the Colorado CCW requirements and a certificate is provided.
*Taking this with a spouse is fine. We will keep you both so busy you won't have the time nor desire to critique your spouses shooting. :)
