The Force on Force I course is a highly dynamic, physically demanding Defensive Handgun 1-Day training course. Utilizing gas or CO2 operated airsoft blowback pistols (not electric), and full face paintball masks, Force on Force I introduces multiple defensive handgun techniques. Participants must be able to squat, crouch, lunge, and move swiftly in any direction. All training and instruction occur on the outdoor private range.
This is not a “spray and pray” Airsoft outing, where everyone gets shot. This is a highly structured training course, with clear training points and techniques introduced in a “shooter vs. shooter” active arena. Many square range dogmatic theories will be tested in this class.
