This Zombie themed course is a combination of our Mid Range Engagement course with our CQB course. The goal of this course is to show different techniques to deal with threats in close proximity (Zombie Themed). This course also covers how to clear structures using tactically sound methods and egage threat out to 600 yards.

This is a Halloween-themed event; one of the best holidays of the year. Feel free to wear a costume, if you want to, throughout the course!
