Force on Force

Short of getting into an actual gun fight, our Force on Force courses are the next best thing. These courses are designed to get your heart pumping and equip you with the knowledge to properly plan for, avoid, and respond to potential threats. Other hands-on courses like this include our Shoot Don’t Shoot (SDS) Simulator Training which is the next step after square range marksmanship such as the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course.

Ultimate Training Munitions (UTM)Our Force-on-Force courses use the Ultimate Training Munitions (UTM) firearms conversion kits and Non Lethal Training Ammunition (NLTA). This 720 degrees, Reality-Based-Training (RBT) is designed by reverse engineering video footage from actual dynamic-critical-incidents caught on body and dash cams as well as surveillance and cell phone video. We take the skills we want our students to learn, so they can prevail, and plug them, one-by-one, into the UTM training model though skills practice, force-on-target, force-on-role-player, and force-on-force. Finally, a culmination of all the skills learned will be tested in a scenario.

Home Handgun

You will be taught the proper mindset, planning, attitude, and situational awareness for your every-day-life and in an effort to speed up your response time so you can ultimately survive a deadly encounter. Civilians must understand the duty to preserve life and make reasonable attempts to solve “problems” without using Deadly Physical Force (DPF). In some instances, we may be forced to move into the unknown or toward a potential threat in order to secure or defend our loved ones. In situations like this, understanding proper movement techniques, use of light, cover and concealment, and marksmanship skills can keep our families and ourselves SAFE when things go awry.
