Counter Active Shooter (Pistol- Day) is a unique course for shooters of all skill levels who want scenario-based training. Our Cadre will begin by reinforcing the fundamentals of safely operating a semi-automatic pistol - stance, grip, sight picture, sight alignment, and trigger squeeze - and physically demonstrate each course of fire prior to each drill. All of the firing drills are based on real world scenarios and designed to fire at various distances, various positions, and single shot or rapid-fire engagement. You will learn basic counter-terror strategies that will better equip you to react to active shooter situations.
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.
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 8-10 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.

A more refined soldier who enjoys the finer things in life, such as loud Harleys and hydro Burpees. He enjoys short walks on the beach and long falls from airplanes. He's an adrenaline junky who never fails to fall for the line “I bet you can’t…”
Pike may appear to be old and slow, but don't get confused: he's venerable and methodical. He matriculated from the old school and is completely unimpressed with your craft beer, hybrid vehicle and non .45 caliber pistol. Other than that he's completely easy to get along with.
