First Responder Pistol - June 29 & 30. 2019

By Hardwired Tactical Shooting - Darryl Bolke and Wayne Dobbs

Class Description:

This is our signature class. It is designed to provide first responders and well-trained citizens with the tools necessary to prevail in all aspects of a lethal force encounter. This class will be run with a 360-degree hot range mentality, and safety is paramount. A majority of the course will focus on surgical shooting within the critical two-second window. We will cover the entire Combat Triad of Mindset, Marksmanship and Gun Handling as equal parts. Threat evaluation skills, problem solving and critical thinking will also be heavily emphasized.

This course requires a reliable service type pistol (revolvers can be used, but the class is paced for semi-automatic pistols) with a minimum of 500 rounds of reliable ammunition, at least three magazines with pouches and a high quality outside the waistband holster that is made for the handgun used specifically and allows for holstering with one hand. No SERPA's unless agency issued and mandated. We recommend that students have had some sort of prior basic firearms training prior to this class. Eye and Ear Protection are also required and we recommend electronic hearing protection. Please dress according to weather conditions and bring plenty of hydration and snacks and lunch. Also, please wear clothing that is acceptable for range use that will protect from spent brass being allowed to enter the top and protective footwear.
