Practical Applied Combo
April 25th and 26th, 2015
Elkin, NC
Cost: $350


Practical Applied Combo (aka PACK) PACK consists of two 8hr evolutions over a 2 day period, with an end goal of to creating shooters who are capable of performing and applying a select number of pistol and rifle fundamentals in a wide variety of situations and under several induced stressors. The student will leave the course with a set of quantifiable, qualitative skills to provide them with a baseline of performance to improve their overall shooting ability and to also diagnose accuracy and speed issues.


Evolution 1 consists of a series of diagnostic drills and ten selected pistol and rifle “standards” based on CSAT (Combat Shooting and Tactics) materials from MSG Paul Howe (Ret) to perform. Using these tools, the students are introduced to marksmanship, appropriate weapon application and manipulation, and then applying these principles on demand and under time constraints.


During Evolution 2, the materials from Evolution 1 are further applied in a series of modules to further enhance the shooters capabilities with the firearms. Some of these modules include consequence target systems, ammo & weapon management, unconventional shooting positions, barricades & cover and inter-student competitions.

Prerequisites: This class is best attended by shooters who have already attained a basic skill set with their weapons and are ready to move to the next level. Both beginning and advanced students will find materials to improve the abilities and to help diagnose shooting issues. Equipment Needed: – Rifle with 3-5 magazines (zeroed, and backup weapon is never a bad idea) – Pistol with 3-5 magazines (and backup weapon is never a bad idea) – Quality Belt with holster and magazine pouches (quality Kydex such as CompTac, Raven Concealment, Bladetech suggested) SOFT NYLON HOLSTERS ARE STRONGLY DISCOURAGED FOR SAFETY REASONS. – Belt pouches to carry pistol and rifle magazines are recommended – 450rds of rifle ammo – 450rds of pistol ammo – Rifle Sling (1 or 2 point, but NO 3-POINT SLINGS, NO CARRY STRAPS) – Weapon cleaning kit (cleaning rod, bore brushes, patches, rags, cleaning & lubricating oil, toothbrush) – Hat, Rain or inclement weather gear – Wraparound Eye and ELECTRONIC Ear protection IS MANDATORY – Water / Snacks (we’ll take an hour lunch break around noon, but we do NOT LEAVE THE RANGE) – Sun Screen (non-greasy or water resistant recommended) I suggest that you wear comfortable shoes, and clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.
