R4 Tactical Handgun III and Tactical Carbine I- Idaho Falls CANCELLED

Course Number: R4259

Course Description:   Tactical Handgun III and Tactical Carbine I- Idaho Falls                                                             CANCELLED effective 03/16/20

DAY ONE

This eight hour course focuses on medium and long range self defense handgun skills. At medium distances of 10-20 yards, students are taught to focus on the threat with both eyes open while bringing the weapon slide into their peripheral view, centering the weapon on the threat. At longer ranges (20-100 yards), students are taught to line up the front and rear weapon sights and when combined with proper trigger control (trigger weld) fire accurately at specific threats. Long distance prone shooting with a handgun is taught utilizing positions which minimize neck strain for accurate long distance shooting.

SKILLS TAUGHT IN THIS COURSE:

  • Range and Handgun Safety Principles
  •  Determining Dominant or Master Eye
  •  Multiple Threat Shooting
  •  Mid Range Self Defense Shooting Skills
  •  Threat Assessment and Situational Awareness
  •  Front and Rear Sight Alignment with both eyes open
  •  Long Distance Prone Shooting with the Handgun

DAY TWO

This eight hour course is the equivalent of the Instinctive (CQB) Handgun – 1 Course where we teach the basics of Instinctive shooting with a carbine.

The same training philosophy is used of focusing your eye on the threat while holding the carbine in the low ready position. On command, the student raises the carbine to their natural shooting position (weapon stock firmly planted into the shoulder with normal cheek weld), then fires the carbine with both eyes open and focused on the threat, not on the weapon sights. With proper eye focus and trigger control the student can shoot very accurately at close ranges of 25 yards or less with a carbine.
This course teaches students to fire rapidly, obtaining multiple hits into the center body mass of a threat.

Skills Taught in this course include:

  • Basic Carbine Skills
  • Range and Weapon safety
  • Instinctive Shooting techniques
  • Trigger control
  • Loading the Carbine
  • Advancing and retreating from the threat (target) while shooting
  • Multiple target acquisition

Dates: June 5-6, 2020

Times: 0800-1700

Credit Hours: 16

Location: Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office Training Annex, 577 D St., Idaho Falls, ID 83402

Cost: $350.00
