    About This Course:

    Many people think they know how to operate a rifle and shoot accurately. For most, this has included taking their rifle to a range and shooting at paper targets until they could consistently hit a bull’s-eye. However, this is NOT fighting with your rifle. Can you rapidly deploy your rifle in a stressful situation, clear any malfunctions, and make successful hits all within 3 seconds?
    If you are new to the AR platform, or have only used it for target practice, this is a vital course. This a basic level course, but even more experienced weapon operators will gain additional experience in using the weapon for defensive situations.

    This course covers proper stance and grip, and covers topics such as point-of-aim versus point-of impact, various methods to sight your rifle, reloads, and weapon malfunctions. Discussion will include different optics, slings, and other rifle accessories.

    Required Equipment:

    Good quality magazine fed weapon (AR platform in 5.56/.223, 9mm, 6.8spc, etc.)

    Approximately 100 rounds of rifle ammunition

    Rifle Sling

    2 extra rifle magazines and a method to carry those magazines

    If there is something you do not have, inform us in advance and we can arrange for you to borrow.

    All participants should bring ear and eye protection and dress appropriately for the weather.

    We do have AR rifle’s available for rental including ammunition (Please Inquire for current prices).

    Prerequisites:

    None

    This course is open to ages 14+ as long as a parent attends.

    About This Course:

    The shotgun is one of the most misunderstood weapon systems, but also one of the most versatile. While many people have used a shotgun to hunt, or to shoot cans, proper utilization in a defensive situation is much different. Ammunition selection, how to change ammunition mid fight, strengths and limitations, extra shell placement, are all things that must be considered to get the most out of the weapon. We will cover various techniques for deploying the shotgun in different scenarios to allow the operator to get the most out of this tool. If you are considering having a shotgun as part of your home defense plan, or you are a patrol officer who wants to get better at its utilization, this is a vital course for you. Regardless of how many rounds you have fired at your local range or while hunting, you will learn how to use your shotgun in real world situations.

    Equipment Required:

    • Tactical shotgun, pump or automatic, gauge does not matter

    • Method to carry extra shells (Side saddle preferred… stock saddle, sling strap, belt pouch, etc are all fine).

    • 50 rounds of number 7 or 8 birdshot

    • 10 rounds of 00 buckshot

    • 5 rounds of slugs.

    • Ear and Eye protection

    If you do not have a weapon, you can use one of ours (simply pay for the ammunition).

    Prerequisites:

    Solid understanding of firearm safety

    Notes:

    Course is open to those 14+ when a parent attends

    About this Course:

    This is a combination handgun / empty-hand FIGHTING course. You will learn how to use your handgun in the overall scheme of a violent encounter. Remember, in the real world, "gunfights" aren't common, in reality they will be a "fight with a gun". This course will better prepare you to deal with that reality.

    Often the hardest evaluation one can do is that of yourself. Of ones own competency.

    Owning a firearm. Something millions can claim. Being a competent shooter. Many will claim that, yet only a fraction of them are, in fact, competent shooters. The difficult question is where on the matrix of competency as a shooter and as a fighter with the Firearm do YOU stand…

    This is about Matrix. Actually, about more than just one. This is about self evaluation. Self reflection. Re-calibration. This is about charting out a highly customized, accurate, relevant and objective matrix of what you are.

    And it is of crucial importance to each and everyone – to know what you are as a shooter, gunfighter, fighter on a more wholesome scale, and more- so that we can determine not only what we want to train, but more importantly – what we actually need to learn and train. To figure all this out, we need to think. Objectively, using raw data.

    This course takes the path of first defining where each student stands as a shooter and as a fighter with the gun. Through thoughtfully designed drills, each student will be able to diagnose individual issues and problem areas. Drills gradually and progressively will take students from the square one way range shooting realm into a much more complex and chaotic realm of a gunfight.

    Attributes and components of the distinct stages of actions within the gunfight will be introduced in order to not only evaluate and diagnose, but to expose dogmatic habits that impede ones ability to fight.

    In two intense days of learning and training, each student will be able to gather enough raw data and relevant results to be able to quantify his/her own competency as a shooter and as a gunfighter.

    Along with diagnostics and charting competency, relevant and practical suggestions related to both shooting and gunfighting, how and why “fighting” affects shooting, and a lot more, will be given individually to each student.


    Topics:

    • Safety, rules principles.
    • Charting your competency as a shooter and as a gunfighter.
    • Components of shooting:
    • Accuracy
    • Speed
    • Weapon handling
    • Consistency
    • Components of gunfighting:
    • Moving
    • Malfunctions from the vantage point of a gunfight.
    • Shooting while moving: Let’s move away from the dogmas.
    • Ambidexterity: The other half of you.
    • Vision: The what, the why, the how.
    • Mindset: What is it?
    • Putting it all together.
    • How to train.

    Equipment required:

    • Handgun and holster
    • Extra magazines and holster
    • 500 rounds of ammunition
    • Comfortable clothes
    • Eye and Ear protection


    Note:

    This is mentally and physically challenging class. It’s purpose is learning, not just training.

    If you are not familiar with Sonny's courses, you should expect a challenge to your mind, your perspectives, and your body. They are physical if you want to get the maximum benefit. You are welcome to sit out any of the exercises that are too intense for your comfort, injury, or physical fitness.

    Pre-requisites:

    Defensive Handgun Level 1 or equivalent

    You must have SUPERIOR safe weapon handling understanding of how the 3 intertwine (muzzle discipline, trigger discipline, weapon status). Each of the 3 will be challenged taking you out of your comfort zone and to show you how it is the 3 together which causes issues.

    Course Description:

    This course is the second in a series of Precision Rifle Marksmanship. This course will provide the knowledge for students to be capable of collecting data on their weapon, optic, and ammunition, and using that data for accurate future shots. The focus is for the student to understand Minute of Angle, mils, and how those are applied in rifle marksmanship. Understanding this is essential when attempting to get 1st or 2nd round hits at varying, long distances, as well as accurate, quick re-engagements.

    About This Course:

    The AR-15/10 platform is one of the most popular rifles in existence today. With years of advances, it has become a highly reliable, accurate, and customizable platform. Primarily thought of as a combat weapon used in military, law enforcement, or personal defense situations, recent changes in hunting laws have seen it become popular in deer stands, hunting pigs, and blasting prairie dogs.

    While saying you have an "AR" gives a basic idea of what you own, there are thousands of variations you can actually have. From the concealed carry 9 mm pistol version, to the .308 squad automatic sniper rifle, to the .50 Beowulf, there are close to a dozen different caliber choices. 8" barrels up to 24" barrels, different twist rates, different barrel thickness, low profile gas blocks, piston driven, free float rails, enhanced triggers, etc are all decisions you need to face when choosing an AR.

    This course will teach you to fully disassemble your AR, trouble shoot any issues, customize any parts, and re-assemble.

    Equipment Required:

    An AR Armorers set is very valuable for this course. We will have limited tools available to borrow.

    We recommend a kit like the essentials kit available from Brownells: https://tinyurl.com/yblhoa9j You do NOT need the professional kit.

    If you want to get by with the basics and borrow our tools, we recommend a small punch set, a small hammer, and a small plastic or rubber mallet.

    Prerequisites:

    None.

    Open to ages 14 and up when parent attends.

    Note:

    Due to ATF regulations, you may not assemble a new AR during this course. You can disassemble it at home and bring all the parts you need to re-assemble it, even in a different configuration. Please contact us with any questions.

    About This Course:

    Active Shooter Situations can happen anywhere. Schools, Malls or Nightclubs.

    Police will respond, but in the meantime how many deaths will occur? If your child, spouse, or loved one is in the path of gunfire, will you respond to stop the killing?

    Having the will to confront the shooter is one thing, but doing so in a way that you prevent innocent deaths, including your own takes a specific skill set. Knowing what to do when law enforcement does arrive is vital. The 540 degree principal, threshold evaluation, movement toward threat, and friendly link-up are just some of the skills you will learn in this training.

    We will start with an understanding of where these events might occur, how to respond, and end with force-on-force drills to let you practice each skill.

    If you are a CCW holder and routinely carry your weapon, this course is a "must attend" for you.

    If you are a first responder, this course will give you valuable insights in how to respond yourself if you are off-duty.

    Fully applicable for Civilians, Fire Fighters, LEO, and EMS.

    If you are someone who thinks it is as easy as just shooting the bad guy, you definitely need to come to this course.

    If you think you will always get shot by the police in this situation, you definitely need to come to this course.

    Equipment Required:

    No live fire ammunition required. All force-on-force equipment will be provided

    Prerequisites:

    None

    Notes:

    This course will run from 10-5 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday. If you are interested in lodging at discounted rates, contact us for details.

    About This Course:

    Although the most probable engagement distance in the real world will be under 25 yards, there are times when probable isn’t actual.  It could be a hostage situation from an extended distance, it could be an active shooter down a long hallway, or it could be someone outside using cover to prevent you from closing the distance.

    This course is designed to allow you to take accurate shots from 25 – 100 yards using a standard setup AR with iron sights, red dot, or holographic setup.  It is not a precision rifle course where you will be using magnified optics.

    Course Topics:

    • Properly zeroing your sights and understanding the various ranges affected
    • Stability positions and how to properly utilize them
    • Movement between various ranges
    • Point of aim versus point of impact at various ranges

    Required Equipment:

    • AR style semi-auto firearm (barrel length/caliber does not matter, AR pistols are fine)
    • Iron sights, red dot, or holographic optic
    • At least 2 magazines
    • 150 rounds of ammunition (we will likely shoot less)
    • Sling (1, 2, or 3 point)
    • Knee/Elbow pads are recommended but not required

    All participants should bring ear and eye protection and dress appropriately for the weather.

    Required Prerequisites:

    Fighting Rifle Level 1 or equivalent

    Special Notes:

    This course is not a highly physical course, but participants should expect to be moving and getting into various positions (kneeling, seating, prone, etc)

    This course is open to ages 14+ as long as a parent attends.

    About This Course:

    You're a police officer, on patrol when you get a domestic violence call. As you arrive at the door you hear screaming on the other side. How do you enter the house, how do you move from room to room, how do you carry your weapon?

    You're in bed and hear the door crash in. You know the police are 10 minutes away. How do you move through your house insuring your family is safe?

    All of these questions and MANY more will be explored in this course. You will learn how to fight in and around buildings, in full light, full darkness, and the spectrum between. You will learn how to work in alone, in pairs, and in a small team. You will learn how to use handguns, long guns (shotgun or rifle), sticks, knives, and improvised weapons in an encolsed space. This is a team based training where you will learn to work with other officers, concealed carry permit holders, and first responders to counter threats. This course WILL cover dynamic room entry, search, and clear techniques.

    The skills will be applicable whether you are beginning civilian or a more advance law enforcement officer.

    Equipment Required:

    • Eye protection

    • Flashlight

    • Gloves and Throat Protection

    About This Course:

    One of the keys to being able to survive a violent encounter is the ability to maintain a clear head and keep communicating with those around you. Whether it be a teammate, an innocent bystander, or the target you are engaging, clear communication in the heat of the moment is often much harder to do than most people expect. You must be able to work with those around you in a fluid manner to maintain maximum team effectiveness.

    Naval Special Warfare members are among the best in the world at engaging forces much larger than themselves, and this stems from their ability to communicate and the extensive drills they run every week.

    In this course, you will be shown many of the drills used to create these highly efficient warriors, and how you can use them to further refine your skills.  This course will focus on Tactical Teamwork and Communication.
