The Tuesday Evening Online Seminar is a three-hour interactive presentation where we review the top lessons learned after watching and breaking down thousands of defensive scenarios.
The Day 1 of Evidence Based Pistol class, on Saturday, focuses on working on the skills needed to address the lessons learned in the ONLINE Seminar. This is an 8-hour live fire class. Please use the gear you carry daily. The round count for this class is 250 to 400 rounds as we have some open practice time where you may practice additional shots as time permits.
The Evidence Based Pistol 2.0 class, on Sunday morning, builds on day one and adds in more advanced pistol skills such as decision making, movement and additional skills. It is a requirement that students take the day one class to qualify for this additional training. The round count for this class is 200 to 300 rounds as we have some open practice time where you may practice additional shots as time permits.
The Church Safety Live Fire class will be held Sunday afternoon from 1:00-5:00pm. In this class time we work on skills need to meet different types of deadly threat situations that you are most likely to face and how that is wildly different from a regular CCW scenario. We will also spend time on the Gear and Skills required, stress testing what you know and use while finding out if it is suitable for the task and the Critical skills unique to church and large crowd situations. For this class, please plan to use the gun you carry (or plan to carry) on Sundays.
Please note unsafe holsters (including the popular Serpa holster) are not allowed on the line in either class. If you have questions about your holster or gun, please contact the host. You will need at least two magazines, along with eye and ear protection. We encourage you to dress as closely to how you carry as possible, with the understanding that you are going to be on the range training all day. You need to be safe and comfortable. Make sure you have a brimmed hat and clothing that will adequately keep hot brass away from your skin.
You will also need plans to keep yourself properly hydrated. If we are outdoors, dress accordingly and consider layers and rain gear. Bring sunscreen, bug spray, and a camp chair for break times.
It is always good to consider the various tools and items you need to keep your gun running, batteries for electronic hearing protection, etc.
There is a $15.00 range fee, each day, for the live fire classes that must be paid prior to class start, please bring cash as this is paid directly to the range.
UPON ARRIVAL CHECK IN WITH STAFF. While you are welcome to load mags to your heart’s content before class begins, DO NOT UNCASE OR UNHOLSTER GUNS PRIOR TO CLASS UNLESS SPECIFICALLY ASKED TO DO SO BY STAFF. NO GUNS SHOULD BE TOUCHED EVER BEHIND THE FIRING LINE.
