I like the idea however my own 2 cents;) Near the end when the guy comes in the window of the car and she starts shooting, she got a good 4-5 rounds into chest, head and basically I'd be astounded if the guy was still in the fight afterwards;)
So looks interesting but I think there are times when those shots would indeed solve the problem and can't with sim rounds, so it's a give and take.
I asked them about this. And while there was a shot to the head, that doesn't guarantee that your threat will stop. If you watch closely, she also shoots her own leg. The idea behind the exercise is to never give up and to not stop. We've all heard the stories of the bad guy that just won't go down for one reason or another. You may think you have enough to put them down but what happens when they're on you.
I like what they're trying to get across here. They're trying to push you beyond your limits so you know how you will react. We can practice all we want. We can shoot IDPA and 3 gun, but the dynamics change when someone is overpowering you.
When speaking with them, they say this is more than just a force on force course. By watching the video, I know that but somehow they need to explain it better.
I did ask about the cost and it is what it is. They provide all UTM ammo and frang ammo that is used in the course and I understand that can get expensive quickly. It's not just like a 4 hour class each day. The hours are long with some down time so maybe that justifies the cost.
And, because I asked, they offered to let me and some friends take the class at a substantial discount. My guess is they want to generate more word of mouth. So now I'm trying to find some people to take the class with me. Who want's to do this with me?
