While many of us are concealed carry permit holders, we know that in a defensive use-of-force situation we may need to employ rapid-fire, and we will almost certainly need to draw from a holster. The problem is that you probably do not have a place to train these techniques regularly. Most ranges will simply not allow rapid-fire or allow shooters on the line to draw from the holster. Condition Yellow Academy is introducing a series of range certification courses which will allow shooters to both draw from the holster and employ rapid-fire when they come in to use our range.
We are offering two different sets of training courses in McHenry with 2 classes in each set. We are offering “Holster Draw” classes, and “Rapid Fire” classes. Available dates are revealed once you select your class below on the registration form.
Here’s how it works:
Register below for the “Holster Draw” or “Rapid Fire” series of training.
Attend the course.
Pass the qualification
Receive a certification which allows you to rapid fire and/or draw from the holster whenever you visit our range.
Anyone who has participated in a full season of Lombard league, or at least 8 league nights in McHenry in the last year will not need to take the course. These individuals will be granted all 4 certifications and have the card mailed to them for $20. These individuals will also not need to re-qualify as long as they shoot in a league sessions at some point during the year.
Re-qualification is a 3-hour class, and will re-certify the shooter for all currently held certifications.
