Imagine pitting your skills against another living breathing human being.

No paper or steel targets, no plastic pellets or fake guns.

Real guns (Glock 17's), real scenarios and potentially painful (bruises) for lapses in judgment or other deficiencies.

This is force on force training.

We tailor our training for real world scenarios that a home owner or concealed handgun permit holder might encounter.

But we take it a step further. We incorporate force on force training in nearly all of our handgun courses.

We don't limit this to "advanced" students or charge a premium for it.

We are the ONLY instructor for civilians in the state of Colorado that is authorized to use non-lethal training munitions from Ultimate Training Munitions.

If you want to really experience force on force training, we are the people to call.

If you believe what you see in the movies, gun fighting (back in the day) was simply a matter of squaring off at high noon and shooting a one another until one (or both) shooters were no longer able to shoot back.

There was also the occasional ambush where one side shot at the other side from cover and without warning.

Both of these events were either legal or illegal depending on the mood of the locals at the time.

Frontier justice was rarely fair nor was it just.

Guilt was often times a matter of who got killed and their standing in society.

Kill the preacher...oops.

Kill the town terror...the drinks are on us!

Gun fighting as it was, is illegal today in most places. Yet it still happens.

Bad guys ambush good guys (Dallas PD) and bad guys ambush bad guys (Chicago gang violence).

The bad guys know that the best way to prevail is to strike first and without warning.

This extends to interactions with other parts of society as well.

If the bad guy is going to commit a robbery he's going to pick his mark, the time and the place that gives him the greatest advantage.
