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 Basic Pistol and Counter Active Shooter (Pistol- Day) coursed prior to Counter Ambush Response if you are a beginner.

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.
