Duration: 8 Hours

There are no upcoming classes scheduled for this course. target icon


This course focuses on the reality of limited maneuver space in regard to any vehicle engagement.  The Shooter Student is given an unabridged look into why relying on your vehicle for “cover” can turn the odds against you.  Mindset is redirected from a false sense of complacency, to the aggressive posture of survivability.  The use of case studies reinforces topics discussed.  Core skills are developed in the maneuver, positioning, protective posture, and pistol employment in the confinement area in and around your vehicle.

While this is not a “Tactics” driven class, there will be a heavy critique of techniques shown to increase confidence, knowledge base, and fine tune processing ability.  Even though we are shooting non lethal ammo, there will still be a safety/medical brief.
