KNOXVILLE Close Range Gunfighting June 23-24!!!

Recommended Posts

FIRST time ever in Knoxville !!!!!

June 23-24, 2012


Knoxville, Tennessee

Instructor: Randy Harris

Price $450

This is our flagship course and goes as far as you can safely go on a square range with live-fire pistols. The dynamic curriculum surpasses the traditional handgun methods commonly taught in most institutions and focuses of the use of the pistol in aggressive close range applications likely in individual civilian street encounters.

The class begins with a tune-up of the fundamentals, then we progress quickly to new skills such as Proactive and Reactive Manipulations, Shooting While Moving Off The X, Reality-Based Multiple Hostiles Engagement, 360 degree CQB Movement, Danger-Close Fighting, Bilateral Shooting, 360 degree After Action Assessment Methods, and Integrating the Flashlight and Other Tools into the Firing Platform. This is the life-saving material that is often ignored in many other programs. In two days, you will receive more information than most armed professionals ever get!

We must point out that THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR THE NOVICE SHOOTER. If you have not received basic instruction, or have a question about your skill level, please call us first.

There have been several questions on what is meant by ... THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR THE NOVICE SHOOTER....That simply means that if someone has never had ANY instruction in safe gunhandling and pistol marksmanship then this class may be a bit too advanced for them. This class is a FIGHTING class not a gun safety and basic marksmanship class.

If someone has never drawn a gun from a holster, shot while moving , or shot their pistol 1 handed then they may have difficulty when they have to move, draw and shoot 1 handed all at the same time. And there is a lot of that in this class. While there are no prerequisites for this class, It is not a basic class it is an intermediate class. I hope that clears up any confusion.

Hope to see you there!

If you have had ANY instruction from a credible source in safe gunhandling and marksmanship or if you shoot IDPA or IPSC then you should be fine for this class.

Of all of the Suarez affiliates, Randy is easily the most accomplished that I've met. Folks will get a lot out of this.

Great class, great instruction, sly and very clever references to all facets of modern life.

In the ensuing week, I have seen Norsemen everywhere.

I've taken a few modern defensive pistol classes and have some (limited) experience in IDPA. Class was most definitely worth the time, travel, and money. Vital skills, observation techniques, and even some gun-in-holster defensive applications. Can't recommend the class enough. Randy was an excellent instructor who matched the class to the students' needs. If you ever have a chance to attend this class, it is a very worthwhile opportunity.

Couldn't see the pics since the site requires one to be a member to view. Was curious to see the setup. Is there a tentative date for the next one?
