We are offering a special class at our range on the Tuscarora Mountain in Thompsontown, PA!
Our range is in woods at the base of a mountain, 2.5 miles off the nearest paved road!
This curriculum will work you through close quarter engagement out to 200 yards using your carbine rifle and pistol. Much of the lesson plan will be based on military pre-deployment training. We will work on mid-level and higher end skills and tactics. We emphasize teamwork & communication while advancing on targets out to 200 yards. Moving while shooting and stationary cover fire is a large part of the class. We perform lots of transitioning drills from primary to secondary firearms with movement. Room clearing and team work, communication, complex problem solving and stress will all be covered. Get ready to flick your switch from defensive to offensive and learn how to win the fight! 6 hour course. $295. Only 12 slots being offered! $140 deposit required to hold your seat.
