Take your tactical skills to the next level

If you can draw and fire your handgun and hit a 3-inch dot at 10 yards in under three seconds, but you can’t apply a tourniquet correctly, your skills are not complete.

If you can keep good hits with your carbine on an IPSC target at 25 yards while moving through a series of cones, but you can’t apply a pressure bandage, your tactical skills need work.

These are some of the considerations behind a new collaborative class involving Gamut Resolutions and D-Dey Response Group called “Shoot and Save.”

The two-day class will be held Oct. 20 and 21 at the Manatee Gun and Archery Club in Myakka City, Florida. More classes are planned for the future.

Cost is $550. Click here for the round count and other information about the course.

If you’re a frequent visitor to this site, you know about Gamut Resolutions. 

Owner and founder Bob Keller provides the best firearm training in the world — period.

All of his instruction is based on what he learned during multiple combat deployments with the Army’s most elite special operations units.

D-Dey Response Group is as bad-ass.  Their staff is comprised of Special Forces medics — 18-Deltas — who all have numerous combat deployments.

Their tactical medical skills have been tested on the battlefield — period.

According to the syllabus, the Shoot and Save class is “designed to significantly increase the skill level of any marksman utilizing a semi-automatic carbine and pistol and teach you TCCC (tactical combat casualty care).”

All students who complete the course will receive tactical combat casualty care certification from the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, but there are a lot more reasons to sign up for the course than just the diploma.

This is real-world training provided by some very real world instructors. None of this instruction is “theory based.” The training will consist only of what actually works in a gunfight.

I hope to see you there Oct. 20.
