Single Person - Home Defense / Residential Structures (CQB)

Single-Person Home Defense CQB

As citizens, we are in or around buildings or vehicles for the vast majority of our lives. Since both vehicles and structures/dwellings offer different problems and opportunities, it stands to reason that we should learn how to defend ourselves and loved-ones in these environments. In this course, we are going to work on how to solve problems within residential structures such as homes and apartments. This course will provide an entry-level understanding of how to navigate indoors in such a way that they can most effectively negotiate any and all problems that arise within a home. Make no mistake- this is not a course for the brand-new shooter. This course covers more of the concepts related to fighting with a firearm than it does manipulating and shooting a firearm. 

Covered Topics will include:

  • Weapon/Gear Selection
    • Considerations of Over-Penetration, Ammo Preferences, Cover vs. Concealment
    • Advantages/Disadvantages of Long Guns and Handguns
  • Thorough Explanation of Doors and Doorways
  • Thorough Explanation of Common Room Layouts (Center-Fed vs. Corner-Fed; Read vs. No-Read Rooms)
  • Scenario Based Problems and Solutions (Hunting vs. Being Hunted)

  • Limited Penetration Room Entry Techniques
  • Dynamic Entries (aka Direct to Threat)
  • Dealing with Hallways (L-Shaped, T-Shaped, X-Shaped)
