Fun With Shockey At DARC Part 3

Once the class is done, it’s time for cleanup and it’s not a light clean up. We fired somewhere in the ballpark of 70,000 simuntion rounds during the week, both officers and OpFor, and yes ass hat, 70k not 6k, it wasn’t a typo. Being familiar with Force on Force orderings and usage, I can confidently say that is more rounds used than all of the Houston Area uses COMBINED in one year for standard training.

I’m going to share my experience while at DARC and also try to explain why you shouldn’t want to go to this course, but rather NEED to go to this course if you do professional level shit for a living. I will say, this course is more geared to the LE SWAT Officer, but regular street level non-tactical knuckle draggers could benefit greatly from this course.
