Why is Combat Training important and how does it differ from shooting at your favorite firing range? One big difference – Movement.
Why is Combat Training Important?
You’ve gone to the range and have stood still and fired at a stationary target. That practice is valuable training for sure, but it lacks “real-time” elements.
Like moving. Because in a real-time situation, for instance an intruder in your home, or an active shooter in a public area, it’s likely that the target will be moving, and it’s also very likely you will not be standing still.
And that’s one of the biggest reasons why combat training is important.
That means reloading while moving.
That means acquiring and hitting the target on the run.
It means heading for cover then shooting successfully from that cover.
Why is Combat Training Important? SpecDive Tactical
Civilian Combat Shooter Training like this is not available anywhere else on the east coast. The skills taught at the SpecDive Tactical Combat Pistol/ Rifle Training ensure that the student is highly prepared for a combat situation.
Training participants will encounter multiple, reactive steel targets with very short exposure times. The drills are designed to force the student to engage multiple reactive targets and reload under stressful and limited time conditions as well as using effective stances and cover while doing so.
This creates an experience as close to “real life” as possible. Approximately 300 rounds of ammunition are required for this training.
Lastly, let’s talk about stress.
We can all agree that when you unholster your weapon in a life threatening situation, stress and adrenaline are running high.
But that’s generally not the case at your favorite shooting range. The sun is out, and you are standing still in a lane at the range, shooting at a stationary target.
In a real life situation?
Chances are better that…
The sun has set, it’s raining, and things are moving. Fast.
And that’s why we introduce movement and stress into our firearm training.
So that when it’s time to pull out your weapon to save your life, it’s more like a “been there, done that” moment.
In other words, you were prepared.
