In order to participate in this course participants should have received formal training in the use of weapon mounted lights and handheld lights while engaging targets. Participants must be able to move, shoot and communicate with confidence. Participants must be comfortable manipulating their weapon in confined spaces with limited visibility. This course requires a high level of situational awareness, communication skills, and competence with both rifles and pistols.
Coming into this class being comfortable and confident with your firearm in a low-light or no-light situation is a prerequisite, and this event will take it to the next level. In this 6 hour block of instruction you will learn and experience fighting in and around vehicles with both your rifle and pistol.
We will use a prop vehicle from which you will learn to use as cover, fight from within, and egress to safety; all while using your light for target discrimination. After several dry runs and live fire scenarios, you will have a culminating exercise in a small team providing cover fire, communications, and tactical egress from the vehicle to points of cover.
This is an advanced pistol and rifle combat course and is not recommended for beginners. We recommend Counter Active Shooter Night (Pistol and Rifle) and Counter Ambush Response prior to taking this course.

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.
