Basic Home Defense, Force-on-Force Saturday, Sept, 2nd, 2023
Basic Home Defense Force on Force Saturday June 10th. Office opens for sign-in 0830 Class begins: 9:00AM Class ends: 3:00PM.
Objective Statement: To provide the student with knowledge and training experience that will prepare them to effectively plan, prepare, and execute actions in defense of life within the home. The course is moderately physical and will require students to stand, crouch, walk, and run. This course is structured to be an introduction to Force-on-Force training centered on the practicalities and logistics of defensive firearm use in the home. The course will provide students with information on subjects such as logistical preparation of the home, fields of fire, selection of defensible space, effective communication with other home occupants/responding law enforcement, and threat assessment/identification/response. Students will employ this information in walk-through as well as live action (Airsoft) formats. Emphasis will be placed on effective decision making under pressure and the ability to articulate the rationale for a decision. While the course will employ handgun simulators (airsoft and blue guns) the material is mostly applicable to long gun use as well. Please note that ALL firing will be done in the shoot house using airsoft firearm simulators and the student does NOT need to bring his or her sidearm to participate.

Scenario Based Skills & Drills
• Sturdy, closed toe, footwear appropriate for the season and for aggressive movement.
• Long pants and long sleeve shirt/jacket appropriate for the season and of sturdy material construction. Airsoft pellets are intended to hurt and thus we don’t suggest wearing thin, flexible, materials such as compression shirts or yoga pants as an outer layer.
• Paper and writing instrument for note taking. Tablets are acceptable but there is no electrical service in the shoot house.
• Water, sports drinks, snacks as required by student dietary needs. There will NOT be a lunch break.
• A handheld flashlight with spare batteries. No, you do NOT need to go buy a fancy “tactical” light. We suggest bringing what you have at home ALREADY to learn its abilities/limitations.
• Protective mask appropriate for paintball/airsoft. Staff retains the right to compel use of company provided PPE. Masks are available on location, use included with course fee.
• Gloves to protect hands during Force-on-Force exercises.
