If you’re like me, the subject of home defense is important to you. I was talking to my buddy Dean from 2 Vets Arms a while back about this very topic (learning a lot as usual) when I asked him if he would consider teaching a course on home defense tactics and fundamentals.Â After some deliberation, Dean agreed.
We’ve been working on the details for a few weeks, and I’m happy to announce that the course is now a go. It will be a one day course held in the Houston area, the cost will be $250 per student, with a maximum of 20 students. I will be attending the course, along with my buddiesÂ Mr. Colion NoirÂ (most likely schedule permitting)Â and Brad from MADCAT Aviator | Operator.
The course will cover basic movement, reflexive fire, reflexive fire while moving properly and safely, firing from cover, movement to cover, home defense mindset, and home/close quarters fundamentals.
The end result will be dry runs through shoot house with a final exercise in home defense – clearing from outside in, and clearing from bedroom/common room out.
This class is not to teach you to be the greatest commando ninja ever. This class is designed to teach you how to handle two separate situations
- Bump in the night and your house is compromised where you need to secure your family members from a threat.
- Arriving home and finding your house compromised and the ability to clear your house upon finding it compromised.
The course will use the â€œCrawl, Walk, Runâ€ method of teaching, where everything you learn is applied in the next iteration, and built upon.Â While this is a rifle/carbine course, the skills and techniques learned will transition to side arms as well.
