Team Tactics - Rifle (Force on Force) is an in-depth, scenario-based course typically reserved for special operation units and law enforcement tactical teams. This course will start with basic drills to familiarize participants with firing from cover, movement, and communication. By the end of the course, shooters will be moving in small squads, negotiating team-fighting maneuvers safely and confidently, and laying down effective fire on target.

This course is not for beginners. Counter Active Shooter (Rifle-Night) is a pre-requisite course for Team Tactics. Team Tactics utilizes semiautomatic pistols or AR-15 platform. Please note that this course will ulitize simmunition, therefore no ammo will be necessary.

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.
