Raton, NM -(AmmoLand.com)- The WU Defensive Training Area is an extremely unique training opportunity for the everyday integration of the defensive firearm.
Our courses are designed around this intent: to create a progression that instills understanding, confidence and ability around the pistol, shotgun and semi-automatic rifle platforms.
School of Practical Pistol Training Area
Practical Pistol is a progressive curriculum designed around the defensive pistol utilization. We incorporate classroom instruction to begin with the holistic understanding of the firearm tool, environment and ourselves, ending the six-day series with lowlight/no-light and support side engagements, along with scenarios to help solidify the concept of Training the Body to Act while the Mind Reacts in a defensibly sound fashion. The Pistol is designed for mobility and we take advantage of this throughout the entire Practical Pistol Series.
Static Fire Area:
Level I-III all incorporate static fire. This is our foundation building, where we begin each day with a Consistent, Efficient and Safe interaction with the firearm. Our target system is designed to instill the thought process of positive identification of the Threat. The School of Practical Pistol has a maximum of 10 students per course with an Instructor ratio of 1:4.
Dynamic Movement Area:
The Defensive Training Area Ranges all include reactive steel targets and a Dynamic Movement Area. We strongly highlight the fact that Up and Down Range is anywhere and everywhere when integrating the sidearm (concealed or otherwise) into our daily lives. Our movement drills highlight the value of maximizing the available cover in the area, while retaining a safe orientation of the muzzle at all times. The Drills emphasize our Principles of Cover, creating a mental progression to maximize the available cover to take control of the situation.
Flexibility is key to success in a defensive engagement; our goal is to establish and expand on this concept.
Practical Pistol III is the beginning of Scenarios: situations that may find us in our normal, everyday lives. These Scenarios range from vehicles to parking lots to home invasion situations. The Scenarios in Practical Pistol III and the upcoming Masters Courses are designed to help with the overall understanding of providing the mind as much time as possible to give the appropriate response to the situation.
Our Scenarios are a good eye opener to why we train.
