We are not a “shooting” school or academy. What we offer is not for those interested in endless discussions about shooting stances, aimed versus point shooting, caliber wars, or other trivialities.
We do not promote the conventional training approach that has become prominent within the last decade. Teaching civilians to “operate” as some uber-tactical spec-war commando without a support crew of other well-trained, well-equipped operators within a realm that is vastly different from the battlefield of a war.
The reality of a lonely civilian caught up in the hell of armed combat does not have much in common with military engagements. Some may say that shooting bad guys is all the same, but it is not. Besides the obvious differences and dilemmas in the moral, legal, and psychological contexts; the most glaring difference is the dynamic of the action itself.
With numerous factors requiring a higher level of mobility in all dimensions, a higher level of responsibility for the surroundings and bystanders, and without a team of operators as support, the combat zone for a civilian is unique.
Civilians rarely possess body armor, NVGs, or other related equipment. In most cases altercations outside of war take place within distances of twenty feet or less from the assailant… or multiple assailants.
