This one-day course is designed for the AR-15, M-16, and M-4 rifle platforms. The class will start off with a close quarters combat zero of the gun. The CQB zero is a realistic zeroing of the rifle based on case studies of actual shootings by both law enforcement and legally armed civilians. The class will quickly transition from sighted fire to unsighted fire techniques. 

In a close quarters fight there is no need, sometimes no room, and often no time, to obtain some type of traditional sight picture with your firearm. Because of this, other techniques such as underarm shooting, hip shooting, sternum shooting, as well as other tactics, will be covered with plenty of movement drills and exercises.

  • Combat Shotgun I
    If there ever was a point and shoot weapon, it is the shotgun. From the trench guns of WW I, all the way up to todayís application of the shotgun in law enforcement, the military, and home defense.

    In this one-day course Mike Rayburn will take his knowledge of point shooting, and apply it to the shotgun. When youíre in combat, whether itís with a handgun, rifle, or shotgun, your body will instinctively react to the stress when your fight or flight response kicks in.

    Dispelling The Recoil Myth
    Proper Mounting & Stance

  • Combat Shotgun Instructor Course
    The most versatile weapon in the law enforcement arsenal has been, and will always continue to be, the shotgun. Even though it is the most versatile weapon we have, most officers still shy away from using it. Hereís the thing; if youíre going to a gun call, bring a real gun Ė bring a shotgun. If you have to clear a building that may possibly contain an armed individual, bring a real gun Ė bring a shotgun. Nothing commands more respect than the racking of the slide on a 12-gauge shotgun.

    One other fact about the shotgun that goes all the way back to itís origins is, that itís a point and shoot weapon. Going back to the old blunder busters, the coach gun, to the trench guns of WW I, all the way up to todayís law enforcement and military applications. Sure, its been improved upon over the years, but itís still a point and shoot weapon.

    In this course Mike Rayburn takes his knowledge of point shooting and applies it to the shotgun. When youíre in combat, whether itís with a handgun, shotgun or rifle, your body will instinctively react to the stress when youíre fight or flight response kicks in. It doesnít make any sense to try and work around that natural reaction. Instead, embrace it, work with it, and more importantly Ė train with it. Thatís what this course is all about Ė to train like you fight!
    Some of the topics covered are; dispelling the myth of the recoil, rapid firing, the various ready positions, snap shooting, movement, multiple assailants, the shotgun as a surgical shooting tool, and transitioning to the handgun are just a few of the topics covered.
