Please leave all weapons in your vehicle. Everyone will enter the Troysgate range building for a short briefing - introductions, collection of payment and discuss the Troysgate training environment, training and safety. The class will be split off into 2-3 groups depending on number of participants. We have three training system units and will Round Robin groups through these units.
Everyone will get their handgun and ammo from their vehicle and head off to with their group to their assigned training unit with their instructor. Training of the first session will begin with the first participant and the next participant will follow after the previous participant's training exercises have been completed. This process will continue until all participants in the group have gone through the first training session. We will repeat the same process for the second training session and so on. Participants will not be allowed to watch or take photos/videos of other participants during the training exercises. Troysgate may have a staff person available to take photos and videos.
We will break for lunch which will be provided by Troysgate... we generally grill hot dogs and hamburgers, cole slaw, chips, cookies and drinks. If the weather doesn't cooperate, then we will order out for pizza or sandwiches. If you prefer you may bring your own lunch and snacks; however, if your food needs to be kept cold, you will need to bring a small cooler.
Groups will Round Robin to another training unit.
We will wrap up the day will a short debrief group discussion and answer questions before participants head out and back home.
