Dynamic Team Live Fire Drills

8 Hours - Dynamic Team Live Fire Drills – Jason WUESTENBERG

 

This course focuses on the importance of conducting dynamic team live-fire drills…and how to conduct them safely. Since the inception of force-on-force training, many drills of this caliber have been reserved for force-on-force training for the perception of greater safety. However, this has resulted in unintended consequences and a decline is certain performance aspects. While force-on-force training is an excellent form of training and a vital part of an overall comprehensive training program, virtually every type of task or operation performed in force-on-force should also be conducted and experienced under live-fire conditions. This course will demonstrate how to conduct many of those tasks on a live-fire range. This course will include a variety of 2-man, 3-man, and 4-man team drills, and will culminate with a live-fire down officer/citizen rescue that incorporates live bodies down range.

 

Equipment:

  • Everything you need for live-fire training,
  • pistol and/or rifle with 3 magazines,
  • 500 rounds of ammo (250 of each if you plan to train with both pistol and rifle).
