CQB (Close Quarter Battle)
This 6-hour, advanced course is built upon the foundations of the advanced pistol and rifle courses. Therefore, one of those courses is required prior to attending this course. This course includes new topics such as small unit tactics, team communication, structure clearing, exterior & interior team movement, room entry and room clearing techniques. Due to the nature of this training, all firearms will be provided by the Blue Lion training team.
There WILL NOT be any live weapons or ammunition during this training. All training will be conducted with the use of inert training guns, simunition weapons (paint guns), or air-soft weapons. We have learned over decades of training FBI agents and police officers in this environment, the learning curve increase dramatically with this type of training. Utilizing this force-on-force, scenario-based training pushes students to quickly employ critical thinking skills, while simultaneously deploying a weapon, to make quick, accurate shots. This simulates some of the stress of an actual confrontation with an attacker. This also allows us to teach students how that stress temporarily degrades the human bodies (physiologically) ability to react, ie... tunnel vision, auditory exclusion, reduced fine motor skills, etc., and the techniques you can use to overcome it.
Students are required to provide the following materials: eye protection, ear protection, a strong side holster, a pistol magazine pouch, and a positive attitude. These classes are conducted at an outdoor range, year-round, so dress accordingly.
Minimum number of students: 5
Cost per student: $350
