Opposition Based Clinic Outline


“Bridging the gap between Range & Reality


BASICS will be providing a 4 hour Opposition Based clinic utilizing the UTM system.  Aside from our various live fire classes offered, members & guests can now expand their training portfolio.

Time to put your skills up against a live opponent.  This class is a Force on Force clinic that will test your ability to employ a firearm in defensive situations.  More important than the exercises themselves, will be the after action briefs.  Shooter students will be held accountable for shot placement and will need to articulate the “why” in every decision.  The main catalyst to Force on Force training is the “Pain Penalty” which gives you immediate feedback and creates a different kind of stress inoculation.  This is NOT a class on “How to be a Tuffy Gunfighter 101”.        

REMINDER:  This class is run from a conceal carry posture ONLY !  Wear clothing appropriate for the training.

Some of the topic covered are:

– Authorized Use of Deadly Force

– Covert vs. Conceal carry

– Increased Muzzle Discipline

– Assessing your Environment

– Proper Target Acquisition & Discrimination

– Accountability of shot placement

– Avoid or Engage : Why get into the fight you could have avoided?
