SgtToadette...There will be some prerequisites for certain classes that can be satisfied through training in lower level classes, or by "testing out", or through proof of equivalent civilian/LE/military training.  More info to follow and be sure to join us for the Grand Opening celebration on May 3-4, 2014.

This reminds me of the South Park episode where Cartman froze himself into suspended animation, because he couldn't stand the wait until the new

Wii version came out.  That May date seems so far off!

 

Could you give us some info about the classes?

LOL...that's a great analogy!  For me the time is going too fast as we try to get everything ready for the launch.

 

We will have classes posted and open for registration on the RTSP site probably in the next ten days, and they will begin mid-May time frame.  Our initial offerings will be Advanced Combat Pistol, Advanced Combat Shotgun, SG Unarmed Combat, Home Invasion Defense and likely the first module of our Executive Protection Program.  The training will be on week nights in 4-5 hour blocks and 8 hour blocks on weekends.  We will also offer private lessons in one to four hour blocks.  

 

All courses will have a Primary Instructor (PI) and at least one Assistant Instructor (AI).  Our PIs are ALL Spec Ops combat veterans, most of whom are still active, some are recently separated and still working as security contractors.  Our AIs are ALL military combat vets and/or current active SWAT cops.  Private lessons will be available with either a PI or AI level instructor, the hourly rate will differ obviously.  

 

Everyone who puts on our polo shirt and steps in front of the class has earned the right to wear it, and is truly an expert at what they are teaching you.  Please ask them about their backgrounds, check them out and you will confirm that our cadre is, as advertised, unparalleled in the tactical training arena.

 

I hope this info helps ease the suspense a little...lol.  I will continue to post as we confirm dates, etc.  Feel free to call the office at 973.434.7601 or write to training@rtsponline.com for specific requests or to book a private lesson or private group seminar.

Two weeks until the Grand Opening/Open House weekend on May 3rd and 4th!  We are getting excited and hope you are too.  I will have a schedule of events out this week and get it posted here.  There will be at least three free demo sessions (live-fire, shoot house and dojo) both Saturday and Sunday given by our top Instructors :triniti: , and I'm planning a NJGF special free seminar.  We have some exciting special guests coming so bring your camera.  I will keep everyone posted over the next two weeks.

Eye and ear pro is a good idea for the live fire demos. I know RTSP has numerous loaner sets, but I would bring my own just to be sure. A notepad or an iPad/smart phone if you want to take down some notes on any training tips. Maybe a camera, but I guess most phones will also meet that need. That's all I can think of right now as far as kit.

 

Bring friends and family of course, anyone who might be interested in this type of training - civilian shooters, security people, police officers and military members. There's really something for everyone. Responsible citizens who care about safe gun ownership, self-defense, and home security and armed professionals who want to take their training to the next level.

 

We will also offer the ability to register for future classes that day and schedule private lessons with our SOF and SWAT instructors.

 

My tip on the private lessons - meet and greet with the instructors on May 3-4. When you find one you connect with and really feel comfortable with, take 15-20 minutes and sit with them that day to discuss your past training and experience and your goals. Develop a personal training plan with them and then if you choose, book your private lesson, be it one session or ten. But first feel comfortable and have a plan of what you hope to accomplish in your training.

 

Thanks for the question and please keep them coming.

Ok...so I'm resorting to bribery. Yes, I admit it, I'm willing to bribe all of you for a successful event on May 3rd and 4th.

 

Seriously, I'll make a deal with NJGF members. I want to get the word out about our partnership with RTSP and our grand opening event so...

 

If I get 500 followers on Twitter and 500 likes on Facebook by May 3rd, I will extend the free seminar I have planned for you guys from half hour to an hour. I was already giving a NJGF members only free seminar that weekend, so if you guys help me spread the word I will double the length of the free seminar. This is legit free training from a top SOF operator!

 

So spread the word and get me up to 500/500! If you get me to 1000 likes, who knows what I will do?!? LOL

Unfortunately I couldn't make it to the event. Will similar demos occur at any other time in the future? I'm definitely intrigued and am disappointed that I was already double booked this weekend.

I will arrange something for you. Thanks for your interest.

      Must Watch Video 8 Seconds Faster
      8 seconds faster because “Smooth is Fast”. If you watch the video and keep track of the time, you’ll see that this shooter, C.S. (our shooter in the drill) is about 8 seconds faster than the majority of the other shooters. Listen to how long gunfire from other shooters continue after she completes her drill.
      Becoming a fast and accurate shooter, is a combination of acquiring skills and understanding efficient human movement. Speed and accuracy does not have to comprise safety, it should augment it. Learning to shoot fast and accurately is an acquired and appreciated skill. It takes time, instruction, practice and the development of skill to acquire it; and it will depreciate if it not maintained.

      Remember when you acquired your first firearm?
      For most gun owners, that time was both exciting and scary!  On one hand, you acquired your first handgun and had hopefully gone to the range.  At the same time, let's admit it, unless you were in the military,  you were at least a LITTLE bit afraid, either of scratching up that shiny new bluing, not being able to put it back together after cleaning, or even leaving it unattended.  After a while however,  you become accustomed to it and it becomes "yet another gun."
      Much in the same way,  I look at "going to the range."
      It is the near universal experience of gun ownership.  You purchase your gun and then you end up going to the range to shoot at least once or twice a week for the next 3 to 6 months.  Every trip is exciting as you become more and more proficient with the gun and discover your passions for different firearms.  At some point however you average day in the range goes from 4 or 5 boxes of ammo to a mere social event and 1 or 2 boxes of ammo becomes the norm.  Simply put, going to a typical range and standing in a port and shooting at a bullseye or a zombie target was no longer fun or appealing.  If you are at the range, it is typically to function check your gun, chrono your loads or just to make sure the gun works and remains rust free after that unfortunate boating accident.
      This is why I believe in and encourage community members of all experience levels and interests to go out and try some form of matches, whether it is steel matches or one of the practical shooting sports such as IDPA or USPSA.   Not only is it fun, but it is also a great way to take your shooting skills to the next level.
      But what if you can't do that?  
      I recently came across some targets made by REFactor Tactical.  The company is a veteran lead business catering to military and civilians, offering products and solutions for on and off the battlefield.
      One of their solutions is their line of shooting targets which I have come to call "Targets With a Purpose."
      There are 4 that I have come to really appreciate.
      The first target is your standard USPSA/IPSC Practice Target.  Generally I am a fan of using the thick cardboard targets for nice clean holes and the ability to paste them. This lets you use use the targets for quite a long time.  Unfortunately there are a few downsides.  First, a pack of 25 or so has some weight and they take up quite a bit of space to store.  Secondly, it is not so easy to use the cardboard targets at many indoor ranges.  The challenge is, with a cardboard target, you are attaching the head next to the carrier, so unless you want to risk destroying range equipment, a good portion of the target is unusable.
      The REFactor Tactical target is printed on paper with wide margins. As such, you can easily use them at an indoor range or outside with wider target stands. 
      When it comes to rifles, my favorite target is the Hitman Target.   The target comes complete with a grid overlay which is extremely helpful for sighting in a rifle with a new optic. 
      Once dialed in, the left side of the target has bullseye target grids ranging from 1" to 3" boxes. They are great to use for 1 MOA groups out to 300 yards.   
      The right side of the target features similar triangles and a bullseye target on the bottom. 
      Even though it is meant for rifles, this target is also great for handgun training at close ranges.
      The other two targets are meant for "gun work," or targets designed to work on the fundamentals of shooting.
      The IQ Target is a full sized target made up of a combination of shapes, colors, numbers and letters.  This allows the shooters or instructors to create a variety of shooting problems to solve.  IT could be simple as "on command,  draw and fire 2 rounds at the Square 2" or "on command, turn, then draw and fire 2 rounds at all of the green circles, reload and fire 2 rounds at all of the blue triangles."
      To make the IQ target even more effective, REFactor Tactical offers playing cards/shooting decks which contain various exercises ranging from static shooting to more difficult turn, draw, move and reload ones.  
      At a recent range day, I really enjoyed practicing with these targets and the cards.  What is quite eye opening for me was finding out that despite not having difficulties with accuracy, I had real issues shooting triangle shapes, typically shooting just below them.
      Perhaps to make it even more challenging, I practiced with a completely different handgun than I am used to shooting, a Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm versus my go to 1911s and CZ 75 SP01 Shadow Custom.  To make it even more interesting, I alternated the magazine between my regular match loads and Speer Gold Dots +P ammo.  (Or perhaps I just happened to leave my gun game guns at home and the M&P was the only handgun in the range bag with some ammo.)
      Finally, the other target that I believe would be of great interest and benefit to gun owners is the Essentials Shooting Target,  
      It is a full sized target of various sized squares and circles, along with a bulls eye.  It was designed around a 150 round drill which covers multiple aspects of pistol marksmanship including slow aimed fire, strong and weak hand shooting, target transitions, speed changes, drawing and reloading.  You can find the drills in their book, the "Essentials Shooting Guide"  or simply create your own drills.
      Bottom line, these were some of the best targets I have shot in the last 15 years.  Factoring in that you are supporting a veteran owned company who produces the targets in the United States at very reasonable prices,  there are no reasons why a few of these are not in your range bag for your next  trip.

    • Don't know if everyone saw the article about how the US "shot down" an Iranian drone that was threatening a U.S. Navy ship.  In reality, the drone was not literally shot.  Its frequency was jammed causing it to crash. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/national-security/trump-says-u-s-navy-ship-shot-down-iranian-drone-n1031451 Does anyone doubt for a minute that bad actors, including the government, would use similar technology to disable smart guns when they wanted to?  Forgot the expense, forgot the potential unreliability.  To me, the ability to readily disable them is the scariest thing about smart guns, as it completely defeats the purpose of the Second Amendment.

    • How deep will these penetrate the skin?
    • "Avtomat Kalashnikov type semi-automatic firearms" are banned, ie Saigas, WASRs, VEPRs, etc.. YET, dealers sell them and there are thousands in NJ circulation. The NJAG Directive addressed "substantially identical" pointing out rifles, shotguns, and handguns. This KOMRAD is neither of those.
