Here’s some further information from the RSKTKR Web site on their Combative Pistol Classes

The Combative Pistol Classes are directly based on my time in the Military with Security Forces as a 9545, in Force Reconnaissance Co. as a 8404, as a Private Military Contractor in the Middle East and Europe, and as a Contracted Firearms Instructor for the Federal Air Marshal Service. The skill sets I teach in this portion are directly related to surviving a tactical situation, and are a stepping stone to higher Tier Level shooting skills.

Stance, Grip, Draw-Stroke, Site Alignment, Trigger Squeeze, Follow Through, And Rituals This course covers all the fundamentals and is a fun day on the range. Starting with a safety brief and progressing to several courses of fire designed to build good habits. We will evaluate and fix down to the smallest detail any shooting problems you may have. We have real world experience as well as thousands of hours of Instruction Time that can be used to your advantage to make you a better shooter.

Additional Skill sets taught in this series of classes will include but is not limited to:

Personal defense skills: Shooters will learn skills to enable them to be able to protect themselves in both combat and non-combat situations. Personal defense skills will directly relate to and enhance the performance of armed combat skills. No skills will hinder the operator’s ability to shoot, and all training will focus solely on tactical operational environments.

Attack the Attacker mindset: Having the shooter attack the attacker and gain the tactical advantage through aggressive movement into the adversary.

Immediate actions: Methods to react appropriately to multiple immediate threats during any situation.

Weapon handling, carriage and stowage (both primary and secondary): Proper procedures on how to safely and effectively handle weapon in a high threat environment. Also learn concealed weapon techniques and proper stowage and handling.

Tactical movement and use of cover: Techniques on how to move and use cover to your tactical advantage.

Target identification, threat assessment and determination and application of appropriate response: Training will include methods to identify targets and prioritize the threat through threat assessment and include realistic training scenarios for shooters to perform these skills under realistic pressure.

Practical evolution and validation exercises (Quick Reaction drills and FTX scenarios) designed for mission specific tasks: All phases of training will include a validation exercise to ensure that techniques learned can be properly applied by all shooters in multiple high intensity combat training scenarios.

Let us know if you have any questions, and we hope you can make it out to the class!

    Is this going to be an ongoing deal or one-time tester to check for profitability?

    Would love to attend but this one I’ll have to hang back.


    • Larry,

      We’re not profiting off this class, just hosting it. We’d like to start bringing in more classes to the D/FW Area and will definitely be trying to set more up.

      Thanks for the comment,

  • kevin gardner

    Sounds like a good time. Sure wish this kind of stuff would be around the Ft Campbell Ky area.

    • Kevin,

      Surely there’s some kind of classes around the Ft. Campbell area, right?

      ~ Bryan

    • Just spent the week there actually and this might be closer to happening than you think. 😉
      Just got picked up by a conglomerate and I might be spending more time in that area real soon.
      Drop me a line and we can discuss this more.

  • kevin gardner

    There’s one place in the area but it doesn’t advertise for any shooting competitions just mainly instructional courses.

  • Brockb

    Sounds like a good time. To bad its like an 8 hour drive down there. I would need a few months advanced notice to work something like this.

  • Really looking forward to this class!
    Leraning will take place, and we will have a good time!
    Thanks again for inviting us out Justin, “The Redhead” and I are looking forward to it.
    If anyone has specific questions not covered, just drop me a line.

  • Learning, not that other thing I typed.
    I swear it’s the keyboard and not me ;-P


    I visited the website, no in depth bio on the instructor, is it posted anywhere? I like to get to know the instructor before I sign up for a class, but I am interested.

  • Directly from website, for more you can contact me directly at 813-956-5050
