    I have two spots left for SouthNarcs Extreme Close Quarters Concepts course that goes from Friday, March 6 (6-10 PM) through Sunday March 8.

    If you sign up tonight or tomorrow, I'll take $50 off. The cost will then be $350. This is for forum members only.

    PM me with "SouthNarc OCDO Special" in the subject and I'll take your information.

    If you openly carry a handgun, this would be a great course for you. It focuses on managing very close confrontations. You will also learn how to handle people who are displaying an aggressive attitude with your voice, hands and, possibly, with violence. Half the class involves shooting drills and the other half is combatives.

    Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I and II (ECQC I-II)

    March 6-8, 2009 in Culpeper, VA

    The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I & II (ECQC 1&2) course is a 20 hour
    block of instruction which focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to
    building functional, combative handgun skills at zero to five feet. The course is
    designed to instill core concepts of seamless integration and provide the platform
    for aggressive problem solving during a life or death struggle. A heavy emphasis
    is placed upon commonality of body mechanics between skill sub-sets, which
    means that all combative software is reinforcing. Once the student’s skill sets are
    initially ingrained, the participant will be stress inoculated with force on force drills
    utilizing man-marking cartridges and protective equipment.

    Topics covered include:

    Block One

    • Diagnostics
    • Introduction to the components of the Combative Drawstroke
    • Building the pectoral index in live-fire
    • Firing throughout the horizontal line of presentation
    • Off-hand fending positions
    • Default position
    • Basic empty hand blows
    • Theory of in-fight weapon access
    • Grounded basics

    Block Two

    • Challenging the potential attacker
    • Preemptive weapon access
    • Muzzle aversion within draw-stroke
    • Negotiating the F.U.T.
    • ECQ Handgun retention in holster
    • ECQ handgun retention out of holster
    • Handgun recovery
    • Handgun striking

    Equipment Required

    Two magazines
    Eye & ear protection
    Heavy sweatshirt or soft body armor
    Mouthpiece and cup
    500 rounds of ammunition


    Directions to the course will be given when you register for the course.

    This class is not recommended for beginning shooters and prior documented
    training or instructor approval is required. Students should be relatively
    fit as this is a contact class. Most of the latter half of each day will be
    spent utilizing man marking cartridges and FIST helmets, to allow the students
    to gain confidence in applying their newly acquired skills against moving
    aggressive opponents.

    Would've been nice if you gave further warning, like a month. Always nice to see what others teach in firearms training courses.
    Gays are prominent members of firearm rights, we do more via the courts, don't like it? Leave.
    Religious bigots against same sex marriage are not different than white supremacists.
    I expel anti-gay people off my teams. Tolerance is key to team cohesion and team building.
