    April 4-5, 2013
    Defensive Pistol Skills
    Ft Collins, Colorado
    Instructor: R. Keith Hoffman

    All training must begin with fundamentals. This comprehensive fundamentals class is designed to prep you for the more advanced courses such as Close Range Gunfighting. Through a carefully designed and detailed curriculum we are able to bring you up to a level of skill in a short two day class that previously would take over 4 or 5 days to achieve at other schools.

    You will learn a complete presentation of the modern combative technique of the pistol which will put you in good standing for any defensive situations you may encounter in the real world. No experience or prior training is needed to attend this class and it is specially suitable for beginners, or as a tune-up for accomplished shooters.

    TRAUMA MEDICINE FOR THE CCW OPERATOR
    Nunn, Colorado
    Instructor: Brian Brzowski, MD / R. Keith Hoffman


    This revolutionary class is directed toward the "Average Joe" who may have never even taken a first aid class and certainly doesn't consider himself to be a medically trained special operator. Instead, he is someone who realizes that, just as with his shooting skills, he needs to have skill to help save someone's life, perhaps his own, in the aftermath of shooting or other traumatic events. We call that man the "CCW Operator". He doesn't have a trained medic nearby. He must show the same self-reliance that got him through the initial incident.
    This will be a very thorough introduction to how to evaluate and treat gunshot wounds, stab wounds and other traumatic injuries. We will do a great deal of technical work to ingrain the correct skills and then work them extensively via practical training, including force on force exercises and live fire. There has never before been training and information like this offered to the general public.
    SOME TOPICS:
    Massive bleeding. What are the options? We will look at everything from direct pressure, to tourniquets, to blood clotting agents. Do you know how to use a tourniquets? How about putting one on yourself, one handed?
    Do you know how to open a person's airway, in various positions?
    How to splint broken limbs, using real equipment and improvised materials.
    How do you move a person to safety, if he can't walk?
    Can you do all this, while maintaining tactical awareness, appropriate movement and shooting back?

    We're just a few weeks out for this great weekend of training and have several slots still available. Everyone who shoots, doesn't matter if you're a weekend plinker, hunter, CCW Operator, professional or amateur should be taking TMCO. Always prepare for the worse because Murphy or worse the Reaper is waiting in the shadows.

    Trauma Medicine in Colorado

    This class was borne out of a need to teach others how to respond to injuries that they may sustain during a violent altercation. Although the mantra of "do everything you can to avoid being shot" is still valid, statistics tell us that it is often difficult to be involved in the defensive use of a firearm without suffering an injury.

    Whereas most gun guys are quick to teach you how to pull the trigger, do you know what to do when the smoke clears and your wife has been shot/stabbed/beaten? What good does surviving the fight do if you or your loved one succumbs to injuries that resulted from that fight?

    Come to this class and learn what you may be missing. These are skills that you must master BEFORE you need them.

    Tourniquet use, dressing and splint application will be covered, all within the context of a fight.

    I've cleared my surgical schedule to come teach you Coloradans this material in response to a heavy demand following the mass murders in Aurora. It will likely be a long while before this class comes back, so now's your chance!

    See you in Nunn!
