Learning Firearms Vehicle Handgun Tactics, Baxter, MN
August 18, 2018 @ 09:00 - August 19, 2018 @ 18:00 CDT$400
Learning Firearms is offering a 2 Day course in vehicle handgun tactics. This course is geared for citizen everyday carry, police officer duty, VIP protection or any other activity where security in or around a vehicle is necessary. Robberies and assaults around vehicles are common worldwide, and this course offers fundamental tactics that every shooter needs to defend themselves from an attack in their vehicle. Students will learn to utilize their handguns from both inside and outside of vehicles, and learn appropriate ways to fight around vehicles as safely and effectively as possible. Students are encouraged to use their carry or duty firearms, and to carry those firearms in class in the manner that they would in the real world; i.e. from concealment or from a duty holster.
This is an open enrollment course. Students must have a basic level of firearms training and knowledge relating to safe handling and operation of their firearm, as well as basic marksmanship fundamentals. For students who have never taken formal firearms training, we highly encourage taking our Fundamental Handgun and Moving Handgun courses prior to taking this course, though they are not mandatory.
Course qualifies for 16hrs of MN POST credits.
– Semi-automatic pistol or revolver from a quality manufacturer. Minimum recommended caliber is 9mm for pistol and .38Spl for revolver, though other carry calibers like .380ACP may be used if the gun is reliable.
– 600rds pistol ammunition (minimum). FMJ/Ball ammo is acceptable. Duty/carry ammunition is not required, but those who bring it will be afforded the opportunity to test it through vehicle barriers like windshields or doors.
– At least three magazines for pistols. If you use a single-stack pistol or revolver, you can use three magazines or speed loaders, but 5-6 are recommended to reduce your downtime reloading magazines/speed loaders.
– A quality holster consistent with how you carry your pistol in everyday life. Cheap generic nylon holsters and any holster using a retention release button actuated by the index finger are not recommended.
– Magazine pouches are highly recommended, but students are recommended to carry their mags how they would in their everyday life.
– Eye and Ear protection. Electronic ear protection is highly recommended
– Sun screen or UPF rated clothing
– Weather appropriate clothing (we shoot rain or shine)
