About this event

Date & Time

The deception firearms training course is meant to pick up where your last firearms training event left off. Participants will be introduced to more advanced skill sets and fine tune older ones. This course is for the advanced participants who would like to continue their training and make combat proficiency a lifestyle through continual education, enrichment, and skill development.

Please note that you must be a Deception Patch holder to register for this course.


In order to qualify for the Deception Patch participants must have completed all of the following at least once:

  • Tough Event
  • Light Event
  • Active Shooter Intervention- Pistol
  • Counter Terror Rifle
  • Counter Ambush Response
  • Night Fire

If you have met the requirements for the Deception patch, please bring the patches from the list above to your next event with Cadre Machine and he will provide you with your Deception patch.

GORUCK Shooter is a test of true grit and skill that will pair the GORUCK Tough rucking strength and stamina with firearms marksmanship and tactical acuity. You will be put against your peers from the GRT community, firearms community, and professionals alike in a test of both physical and mental fortitude. Anybody can be fast and accurate with enough time spent on the flat range. Most can put in the time and gain the endurance necessary to ruck long and fast; but few can combine the two under pressure. GORUCK Shooter is the ultimate opportunity to test yourself against your fellow badasses.

The GORUCK Shooter course will have two separate events: Pistol and Rifle. Each participant will have the opportunity to participate in both events.

Start times will be staggered in waves. You will ruck a 5k (in under 45 min.) for the pistol portion and a 10k (in under 90 min.) for the rifle portion. Weapons will be staged at the start/end point of the route, which will be at the shooting bay where you will shoot immediately after the ruck. All courses of fire will be walked through and you will be provided ample time for gear preparation and ammo management prior to commencement. Cadre will enforce strict safety protocols paramount in all GORUCK firearms training events. Those who score over a 70% average and make the ruck time drills for both events will be awarded the GORUCK shooter patch. Those who do not pass can come back and try again at a later stage. This is an individual event.
