Real crisis events never take place in a controlled environment and involve much more than firearms training. This three-day training event will focus on combat medical care, stop the bleed and firearms training with one of the most experienced combat medics around - Sky Barkley of the Free Burma Rangers.
Sky can be seen in the Free Burma Rangers movie fighting through Mosul with FBR during the worst of the fight against ISIS. Short on medics, Sky spent more than a year in the thick of it, learning how to save lives. A former US Marine who had already seen his share of combat in Iraq, the fight against ISIS took his abilities to another level.
Sky will be conducting the training February 11-13. An additional day for practice with your firearms will be included in the weekend February 10 for those who want to get in some time on the range.
The training will take place at Maple Fork Lodge, one of the finest family-run lodges on the Eastern seaboard. The finely-appointed log home accommodates up to 35 people in a comfortable, intimate setting, with an 11-lane pistol range, as well as carbine, rifle, and shotgun ranges.
Slots are limited, so don't wait. $400 per person includes tuition, food, and accommodations. Bring your weapon, hearing and eye protection, and 300 rounds of ammunition.
It will be a great weekend, suitable for anyone 16 and up. Bring your sons and daughters.
February 10 Thursday: Range day. Bring your weapon and get in some firearms training. A Range master will be provided for safety.
