***note*** Date correction to the 23-24th of August, a Saturday and Sunday.
We are currently in talks with Suarez International to have them come and teach classes at our Mapleton range in August. The course we are discussing is their Close Range Gunfighting 2 handgun class and it is likely to be timed to occur on August 23-24 as a two day class.
Details about the class can be seen here: http://www.suarezinternationalstore.com/close-range-gunfighting.aspx
Prerequisites for this class are that you know how to operate a handgun safely and competently from a standing position. You should be able to safely perform reloads, malfunction clearance drills and draw from a holster. If you need a refresher or are unsure, that is no problem. I will be certified to check you out and refresh/train you to a level which should give you the skillset to be on the curve and ready for the excellent CRG2 class. If you already know how to run a handgun, Close Range Gunfighting 2 exists to teach you how to fight with one.
Planned for September 20-21 is Suarez’s Rifle Gunfighting 2 class. Again, prerequisites for this will be competent rifle manipulation skills. If you need a refresher, I will be offering private refresher courses to get you up to speed. Once you know how to run a rifle, Gunfighting 2 class will teach you how to fight with it. http://www.suarezinternationalstore.com/rifle-gunfighting2.aspx
Both of these above classes are slated to be featuring the teaching styles of Brent Yamamoto, a Suarez International Tier 1 instructor. I just got off the phone with him and he’s a real down to earth guy who is going to teach what he knows, not just a lot of hot air. He knows a lot and loves to pass that knowledge along while still making the class fun. He is big on repetition so your money will be well spent as you will really learn to do the stuff he teaches, instead of just talking about it. http://www.suarezinternationalstore.com/instructor-brent-yamamoto.aspx
Everyone who wishes for there to be high level training classes in the Eugene area needs to help support these first classes. If turnout and response is good, 2015 will be an exciting year for training at The Tactical Toolbox as Suarez International will be highly motivated to offer their world class higher level classes, including Close Range Gunfighting 3-5, Rifle Gunfighting 3, Team Tactics, and other such really fun courses.
