    You guys are cracking me up! We shot a stage at OKCGC at one match where you were required to "save" an infant and carry it all the way through the stage. Everyone, including moi, treated the baby doll like what it was ... A baby DOLL ... Not Grumpy ... Oh hell no!! He cradled that thing in his arms and still outshot everybody ... The bastard. We made unmerciful fun of him for being "delicate" with the "baby" but he just laughed and said "I'm a professional. It's what we do." Of course, the "baby" was deaf by the time he was done with that stage but hey!! he was "gentle" with it. Haha!

    Shot a similar run last year at GAS called save the Lindberg baby. Some folks held the doll up by the arm to make two handed long shots lol

    I saw a cop in the scenario. You tell him to GTFO! Not even close to real life. Your watching too much TV.

    Perhaps you did not understand the scenario? This was my house. I guarantee you if a patrol officer is in my house and they don't get out of my way they are getting told to get the heck out of the way. It may sound funny but I was taking this class with the Ogden city Utah SWAT team and several of them shot the officer. Their Chief of police sends them to Gunsite because he says it's cheaper to send his officers there than pay one wrongful death judgement

    The night scenarios were the ones that really got you going. Working a light and moving in the dark are wild.

    Yes the first couple of scenarios they micro manage you. After that they let you alone unless you make a safety violation. The force on force scenarios using simunition were pretty eye opening https://www.gunsite.com/

    No problem. most folks look at training like I can hit a target and that's all they think they need. until you go somewhere like Gunsite you don't even know what you don't know. This class like I say we had members of Ogden Utah SWAT. Aurora Colorado SWAT and New Jersey State Police along with executives from a large theme park in Florida. Heck just getting to shoot moving targets was new experience for me. Fun too how much these folks pulled for my wife on the drills. Great support. Counting our tuition, ammo, car rental, lodging and meals it was right at 6000.00 but I'm saving for the next class.
