The Airsoft thread got me thinking about simunitions for training. It would be a lot more expensive than airsoft...but being able to use the same firearm you carry, feel, running mags dry, etc the things that are harder to simulate with a not real weapon. So I mosey over to their website to get a feel...even thinking about calling around to some of the trainers around here to see what they would think. Then I find this on their website:
Please note that this program is not suitable for training private citizens or recreational activities.
To be approved for the Range Program, you must fulfill the minimum requirements, which are;
* Proof of $1 million liability insurance annually
* Formal agreement to not train civilians with any of our products (signed by both parties)
* Formal agreement to not resell our products
* Mandatory attendance and successful completion of our Scenario Instructor Training Course every 3 years (fees: $550 for first class; $275 for subsequent classes)
* A minimum purchase to include 5 cases of FX® ammunition, 6 face protectors, and 6 throat protectors (approximate cost: $3500)
You'd think with all the states that have some form of CCW...and the market for training those people...Simunitions would be a BIT more market savvy than that.
Am I missing something?
