Go Ruck Level 1 Basic Pistol
January 29 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0
Basic Pistol is a new offering in the GORUCK Tactical series, this is a course for brand new shooters who want to learn basic firearms safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship. Our Cadre will begin by teaching all the basics of safely operating a semi-automatic pistol; parts of the weapon, rendering safe and clear, function checking, disassembly – stance, grip, sight picture, sight alignment, trigger squeeze – and physically demonstrate each course of fire prior to each drill. All of the firing drills are designed to make you accurate from both gun in hand and drawing from a holster. You will fire at various distances, positions, clear stoppages and practice magazine changes. You will learn basic strategies that will better equip you to react to use of force 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.
