Some of the topics covered:

This class is the first class in our HRO package and deals with learning how to operate in two shooter teams and covers, Modified Small Unit Tactics, Moving as a Team, Immediate Action Drills, Counter Ambush Drills, and other things commonly taught to special units. You will learn the material via small lectures, dry and live fire work, and extended fire drills. To our knowledge, this material has never been taught outside of professional government funded schools.

This is the four day material in a compressed three day format. In addition to this usual material, we will work on vehicle drills, and some movement to contact, and ambush-counter ambush work. We have a huge area to work with and the vastness of terrain exceeds what we have worked with before. Take a long look at the photos we have added. This is a great learning class and one of the most fun training sessions we do all year.

This will be physically challenging class and will involve carrying your gear and weapons all day long, as well as require short sprints, dropping into position and getting back on your feet quickly. Be sure you have a reliable rifle, and understand how to use it bilaterally (both right and left sides). Be sure you can execute a reload on the move and retain the magazine with you.

In short -

1. Be in good enough shape to carry all your gear all day long

2. Know safety, marksmanship and reflexive gunhandling

3. Take care of yourself-all the little things like hydration and the little ouchies we all succumb to from time to time.

NOTE: This class is presented for lawful information purposes only and without any intent that the material will be used by anyone for unlawful purposes.

Don't forget to wear well broken in boots and use good socks. Load bearing rig/chest rig (must be capable of carrying ammo/water and a small amount of other supplies), med size backpack/rucksack, while you will not be required to carry it, it is a good idea to have extra water (minimum of 9 liters per person per day, even if you do not use it), personal emergency equipment to include a fixed blade knife (5 inches or less is fine), fire starting equipment (lighters/matches/or commercial emergency fire starters are fine), ear and eye protection (recommend both sunglasses and clear shooting glasses).

OPTIONAL: Night Vision devices, 2 way radios, binoculars, trauma kit w/tourniquet (Highly Recommended), Ranger handbook

WATER: While you will only be carrying 3 liters or so on your person at one time you'll need to bring 3 times that, per person, per day. This is a requirement of the class. Come prepared for trecking through deep brush and terrain features while carrying all your gear. Possible overnight in the bush.

Range & Gear Requirements

Also Helpful

Bring spare clothing appropriate for the weather, including a hat, sunscreen, and bug repellent. Plan to bring lunch, snacks, and water (min 1 gallon per person) for the entire day unless driving to lunch is a viable option from the range location. Bring allergy medication (if needed), a chair (if you prefer), note taking supplies, and a boo boo kit (band aids, gauze pads, antiseptic wipes, antibiotic ointment and tape). You may wish to bring pads such as knee pads, elbow pads, and gloves if the class lends itself to that.
