Racine Class Logistical Information (Location, Hotels, ect.) NOTE: The Racine County Line Rifle Club charges a $25 per day range fee that must be paid the first day of each class to a range liaison. If you are a range member, you will be reimbursed the full fee.


Fighting Pistol
From the class description: Fighting Pistol Mobile


The root word to "gunfight" isn't "gun". It's "FIGHT!"

This is the course everyone is talking about! It is the most comprehensive 2-day handgun class in the world. This course is literally a life saver. Our Fighting Pistol course prepares you to prevail in a real world violent confrontation and many students have gone on and done just that! This intensive course covers an incredible amount of material in just two days and we have been told that it covers more than any 5 day course at the "big schools".

Topics include the role and attributes of the handgun, legal aspects of deadly force, anatomical stopping power, mental conditioning for combat, movement and communication. Live fire drills include both one- and two-handed shooting, shooting on the move, use of cover and concealment, loading and reloading, using both eye level as well as retention techniques, at a variety of ranges and from a variety of body positions. This course is about 40% lecture on mindset, tactics, skill, and legal issues but don’t worry because you will still be shooting a minimum of 750 rounds while you are on the range!

We respectfully request that students have read "The Principles of Personal Defense" by Jeff Cooper before attending class. If possible we also recommend “Surgical Speed Shooting” by our friend Andy Stanford. These and many other items from our gear list are available at www.TacticalResponse Gear.com.

Fighting Rifle

From the class description: Fighting Rifle Mobile


Details:
You know how to shoot your rifle or subgun now let us teach you how to FIGHT with it! This course is far more advanced than any other rifle course you can attend (with the exception of our advanced course) and covers trajectory, battlesight zero, gear set-up, sling configurations, transitions to pistol, use of cover and concealment, practical ready and firing positions, close- and medium-range snap shooting, weapons handling, urban applications, team drills, firing while moving, multiple targets, plus the tactics required to employ this potent tool in combat. Every student leaves this class with empty mags, a red hot rifle, and a smile from ear to ear! This is one of our most popular courses.
This class is great for nearly any magazine fed rifle or subgun and any traditional military style rifle. We will show you how to run your MP5, AR, AK, RPK, FAL, M1A, G3, VZ-58 or whatever weapon you have!

AR-15 shooters take note: We do not recommend steel cased ammo for our classes. Please check our FAQ for more information.

We respectfully request that students have read "The Principles Of Personal Defense" by Jeff Cooper before attending class. This and many other items from our gear list are available at Tactical Response Gear Store.

Might have to keep this in mind for next time around. I am just getting into guns and don't quite have enough resources to make it. Looks like one heck of a deal though!

Why am I just finding out about this now? I have been in the market for JUST THIS SORT OF TRAINING and now its too late to request off time from work.

Drats.

My situation is different this time, but I know exactly what you mean.

I would love to attend but shoulder surgery on the 18th put an end to that.
I hope there is some training next year...
Link Posted: 8/6/2010 6:52:01 PM EDT
Sorry to those that weren't able to make it this year - I'm planning on hosting more classes next year.

I posted it in the Training Forum, IL and WI HTF and the Tactical Response Industry forum. It's great training and I wouldn't be hosting it if I didn't believe in the quality of the instruction and curriculum.

IM / E-mail with any questions - these classes are worth making an extra effort to go to...

We're all set for 2 excellent classes at Racine County Line Rifle Club.

1) RANGE FEE
Remember there is a $25/day range fee - please bring $50 cash to the class so we can pay the range for the use of their facilities. Brian Holmes will collect the cash before class begins.
-If you are a range member, you will be reimbursed the $25/day fee. Contact Kay to be reimbursed.

2) TRAVEL TIME
The range can take awhile to get to, so allow extra time so everyone is on the line, ready to START at 9am.

3) SPEED
PLEASE obey the speed limit signs posted on Michna Rd. (35mph) and on the range roads (10mph). We are guests of the range and want to be invited back. Police occasionally use Michna Rd. as a speed trap.

4) 25 METER RANGE LOCATION
The classes are scheduled to take place on the 25 meter range - the Range that is furthest East at the facility. Follow the range road to the very end near the large berm.

5) PARKING
Some cars will be able to park behind the firing line. If there is no room behind the firing line, unload your gear and park in the lot by the covered 100 yard range. We can NOT permit the range road to be blocked as we must have easy access in and out of the range in case of an emergency.

6) WATER
There is NO WATER at the range so baby-wipes and bottled water / gallon jugs of water are the way to go. Remember to pre-hydrate. There is no shade at the 25 meter range.

7) FOOD
Ideally, people should bring their lunch and drinks so we can get the most out of every training day. If you do go off-site for food, please hurry back asap and allow extra time for traffic, etc.

-There is a gas station - with all the usual gas station food to eat and drink - about 10 minutes away.
