Handgun Cover + Movement

Class Cost

$175
Plus:
  • $25 Range Fee

Class Flow: INTENSE (students can expect a full day of movement and physicality when attending this class)

It would be great if we could always have sure-footing underneath us at all times when we need to make the perfect shot. It would be great if bad guys stood out in the open with Nerf-guns as their only weapons. Real-life isn’t so easy and for that reason, we need to use our environment to our advantage. This class will prepare students to use make the most of movement and cover while achieving needed hits on target.

Handgun Cover + Movement is designed for the shooter who is confident and competent with shooting fundamentals AND weapon manipulation of their handgun. This class is for the intermediate to experienced shooter who understands and applies the four firearm safety rules as a way of life. This class is physically stressful and will test those who attend.

by Tosh on Class: Handgun Cover + Movement

This class is where you realize that, although we all love cool gear and accessories, in the end you have to have your basic physical fitness in check to say you are truly pursuing a "complete package" of self-defense/personal protection. This is not to say you have to be some CrossFit specimen to be in this class - as with all MDFI classes, it is an "ego-free zone" where we all support each others' development. So as long as you have the prerequisites and can apply the 4 Firearm Life Rules of Responsible Gun Handling, come as you are and leave knowing what you need to work on.
It's a awesome day of rolling around and gettin' dirty.
Your gear setup will be tested (you'll get to see just how secure your carry holster is for sure!), and you'll likely walk away with notes on how to better optimize things for your everyday carry.
Reloading and malfunction-clearing are entirely different animals when your on the ground. Helluva lot of fun!!

Handgun Cover and Movement. Because if the poop hits the oscilatting device you won't be standing in a square room in perfect conditions shooting slow in a standing position. And most likely the reason you've drawn your blaster is because there is a lethal threat.

I spent many hours yesterday getting up and down off the ground, squating, spinning around in the dirt on my back, sides and belly, rolling on my belly to shoot, dropping to one side or the other on a threat command.

Was it fun? Lots of fun! Was it physically demanding? Yes. If you want to get the most out of what the class is about, you will be pushing your fitness level. But if you are ever experiencing the worst day of your life it will be more demanding than a class. So dont shy away from this class! Instead, prepare for it best you can.

My biggest Gold Nugget: The last 2 two workshops of this class is as close as you can probably get to the stress your body will feel in a life or death firearm based senerio. Your tired, you're having to think, manipulate your blaster, reload and use your cover.

The only way to get more real would be a shoot house and/or Force on Force, which for me is 2020.

Last thought: I am so glad I retook Foundation Handgun 2 weeks prior. I may have been struggling with many basics had I not revisited them.

I will be taking HGCM again. I personally feel someone would do themselves a disservice blasting through the curriculum to get a Black Card. Why? So many things over lap. You can go back and apply new skills to old problems.

Great class! Highly recommended. The physical activity is no joke, but had a blast learning different shooting positions and transitions. Can’t say enough positive things!

by Dan on Class: Handgun Cover + Movement

Flat out the most valuable and relevant information I have ever received in firearms training. Trek and the Cadre run a solid, organized class. They are very knowledgeable and all around top notch instructors. This course was demanding on both your gear and your body, but it was also a lot of fun. The techniques I learned will serve me well on duty and off. This course is well worth the time.
