Tactical Preparedness 101

This course, developed by Space Coast Tactical, is implemented based on a review of hostile force tactics in current conflict zones worldwide. Traditional shooting doctrine is suffering severe erosion based upon the lessons from the battlefield. Gunfights are occurring at point blank range and are over in seconds. The top PMC's are now looking for three disparate qualities in their operators. These qualities are:

  • Situational Awareness
  • Positive Target Identification
  • Instinctive Shooting, especially from awkward postures

The 10 day course is designed to equip the candidate with the skills and necessary foundation needed to be able to progess and fine tune their skillset as a professional operator, able to take part in high risk deployments.

The course also teaches the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for the safe use of semi-automatic handguns and the tactical use of revolvers, semi-automatic pistols, and semi automatic rifle to an intermediate level. This course, recent military or law enforcement experience, or a similar recognized course is a pre-requisite to all more advanced courses we operate. Your safety is our prime concern.

This course is specifically intended to train both inexperienced students and those who know their way around guns in the basic fundamentals of tactical shooting, from safe handling to fast, accurate and effective close quarter shooting. You will be instructed in the most current techniques being taught to United States Law Enforcement.

The course contains a "Kill House" day where students will be instructed in building clearance techniques by experienced SWAT instructors, culminating in a realistic exercise.

The goal of this 10 day course is to ground you in tactical shooting.

Ain't it the truth....

"'The only purpose of a handgun is to kill people.' - This often repeated statement is patently untrue, but to those Americans whose only knowledge of firearms comes from the nightly violence on television, it might seem believable. When anti-gun researcher James Wright, then of the University of Massachusetts, studied all the available literature on firearms, he concluded: 'Even the most casual and passing familiarity with this literature is therefore sufficient to believe the contention that handguns have `no legitimate sport or recreational use.'' There are an estimated 65-70 million privately owned handguns in the United States that are used for hunting, target shooting, protection of families and businesses, and other legitimate and lawful purposes. By comparison, handguns were used in an estimated 13,200 homicides in 1992 --less than 0.02% (two hundredths of 1%) of the handguns in America. Many of these reported homicides (1,500-2,800) were self-defense or justifiable and, therefore, not criminal. That fact alone renders the myth about the "only purpose" of handguns absurd, for more than 99% of all handguns are used for no criminal purpose. By far the most commonly cited reason for owning a handgun is protection against criminals. At least one-half of handgun owners in America own handguns for protection and security. A handgun's function is one of insurance as well as defense. A handgun in the home is a contingency, based on the knowledge that if there ever comes a time when it is needed, no substitute will do. Certainly no violent intent is implied, any more than a purchaser of life insurance intends to die soon."
