    I don't have a clue. I just saw it posted to a group on Facebook I'm on.

    No idea if it actually is a Tactical Response class.
    I just saw it on Instagram when Chris Henderson shared it there. And then a couple of friends sent me the link to the video.
    Immediately after it was posted some of Yeager's fans got riled up so it may be his place. Or not. It looks pretty stupid regardless of who or where.

    Every Range Officer present during that event should loose their job (if paid) and accreditation (if required). I have NO issue with the guy in the wheelchair a) seeking the skills on offer and b) participating in all possible aspects of the training. In this case it was NOT reasonable for him to participate in the advancing on target drill as neither the ground nor his physical ability make it safe (for other participants/staff) to do so. It is also NOT realistic training for him with his physical limitations.

    I like how all of the rest of the shooters do a "Charlie's Angels" 360 check. Nothing wrong with holding a gun up by your face while spinning in a circle!

    Yeah I saw this the other day. I would have been out off that range in a heartbeat. The least they could have done was to clear the shells so it wasn't so bumpy, or at least keep the advancement of the line at his pace so no one was in front of him.

    Took me a minute to find this thread again, here's another great example of range safety:

    Supposedly, the guy is an instructor, or at least affiliated with Las Vegas Gun Range. A quick peak at their "Hot Shooters" page reveals that their clients learn quite a bit about firearm safety, etiquette and trigger discipline....

    (I only looked at one page, and I know most of those are props, but still - WTF people! :confused:)

    Yeah I saw that on Facebook. You can see the guys leg literally shaking as he's walking towards the range table. Looks like the barrel hit him in the face too lol.

    Walking out immediately would be a good idea.

    After watching these videos I think they are great examples of real world training. What better way to simulate a real life and death shooting situation than to actually take a bullet during a drill? This must be some of the most dedicated firearms training I have ever seen!!;)

    We've been trying to get Hugh Coffee to take a round in the femoral for years just so we can prove that his tourniquet application works. He won't do it.
