Start Point

Your start point will be posted to this page and emailed to you at least one week before the event date.

Counter Ambush Response is a dynamic course that combines vehicles and handguns. Our Cadre will review basic firearms handling, safety, and vehicle considerations prior to scenario-based training. All scenarios revolve around shooting from inside, outside, or around vehicles. Driver/passenger reaction drills, fighting from inside/outside the vehicle, and countering street-side threats (carjacking) are a few of the scenario-based drills you will perform during this course. You will engage multiple threats and manipulate your weapon while effectively getting shots on target.

Participants who complete this course with Cadre Machine will be eligible for a non-resident concealed weapons permit. These permits are valid for a term of 7 years in 36 states.

Counter Ambush Response is an advanced pistol combat course and not recommended for beginners. We recommend the Active Shooter Intervention - Pistol course prior to Counter Ambush Response if you are a beginner.

Due to the space and safety requirements needed to conduct these events the ranges may be up to a two hour drive from the city listed. Please keep this in mind when making lodging arrangements.

The duration of this course runs 5-7 hours.

All GORUCK Firearms Courses and Events utilize scenario based training which is incorporated into dry practice prior to any live fire. All participants will practice target identification and discrimination, movement, weapons manipulation, and other dynamic drills with the cadre and others. These drills will be facilitated with inert weapons enabling a safe and realistic training environment. Both pistols and rifles will be rendered inert with barrel/chamber blocking plugs. Further, each student must fully participate in dry practice prior to commencing live fire.

Additional Information

  • Firearms Training utilizes semiautomatic pistols, however, we offer custom classes on any and all small arms. Full-Frame pistols are recommended. Sub-Compact pistols are not recommended.
  • We offer Glock 19 (9x19mm) pistols for use upon request in advance. To request use of one of these pistols follow the directions in your "Event Confirmation" email.
  • SERPA-style holsters not authorized. Due to the nature of the training offered and the repetitive drawing and holstering of firearms, SERPA style holsters are not authorized for GORUCK Firearms training courses. If you do not have an alternative holster available, one may be provided with advanced notice.
  • Keep firearms in vehicles. Please take care that when arriving to training sites, participants are not to remove from their vehicles or otherwise handle firearms until instructed to do so by the event cadre. In an effort to enforce good firearms safety and best practices, we would ask that firearms remain in vehicles until specifically told to bring them out.
  • At this time we are unable to transport weapons in to New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and California. If your event is in either of these states you will need to provide your own weapon. The single exception is Lake Tahoe, CA because the range used is on the Nevada side of the border.
  • Shooters who display weapons proficiency will by challenged by the Cadre to increase their skill level by various methods. This will not have an impact on the overall conduct of the class.
  • Active-Shooter Intervention - Pistol (ASI) or similar basic pistol course is a prerequisite for this course. This course is not meant for beginners.
