Here the warrior scholar is forged. Pounded to perfection through discipline and dedicated study, repetition and attention to detail.
Welcome to Skill Builder. This small group workshop is not a basic level firearms course. This is not the time for hand-holding and sweet talking, nor is it for introducing you to your gear. It is an affordable, safe, and time-efficient opportunity for the developing shooter to practice and perfect his technique; To stretch his limits of speed and accuracy under time and peer pressure, guided by as-necessary instruction from professional trainers. The aggressively paced class offers minimal talking, and maximum trigger time.
This class focuses on perfect repetition of perfect carbine technique.
Those who have seen the light understand that there is no such thing as an “advanced” technique, or an “advanced” gunfight. Simply put, the mastery of core principles, or the lack thereof, is the only thing which differentiates the professional from the amateur, the victor from the victim.
In this workshop, you will push yourself to mental exhaustion, run your equipment to the point of failure, develop confidence in your gun-handling abilities and metal toughness, grow in discipline and moral character, and become faster, stronger, more alert, and more accurate than you previously thought possible.
We will run drills that isolate and allow you to perfect these skills:
Universal principles of gun safety
Slow, meticulous, efficient weapon manipulation
Non-diagnostic clearance of simple malfunctions
Smooth, efficient, fast presentation from ready positions
Slow, consistent, safe use of the rifle sling
Battle sight zero (BZO) of the modern fighting rifle
Aggressive, stable, and mobile fighting stance
Alternate visual index speed shooting
Instinctive point shooting
Hard lateral movement to reduce your likelihood of leaking fluid
Moving and multiple threat engagement
Sidearm transition and emergency one hand engagements
You will need:
Rifle or carbine
Optional: Handgun with holster, appendix is okay
200+ rounds of primary ammunition – No m855 green tip or penetrator core ammo
At least two spare magazines for the rifle

You do not need to check in at the office first. Leave your firearms encased, and fill out a name tape and waiver. Then we can unpack our firearms all together.
Is there an age limit?
Parental discretion and supervision required. Teens 15+ welcome. This is not a class well suited to younger children.
I don’t have a holster, is that okay? If you want to use a pistol, you need to bring one or contact me in advance to borrow one.
Should I use an inside the waistband or outside the waistband holster? The choice is yours but I recommend you use “street” gear.
Can I use appendix carry? Yes.
Should I wear body armor? If you have it at home, its not very useful is it? Train wearing what you will fight in. Body armor or bathrobe, the choice is yours.
Can I shoot my AR pistol? You are definitely welcome to bring it. You will need a sling. Same for mp5, sig mpx, ak, etc etc.
What calibers do you allow? So long as you’re safe, anything goes. Want to train with an M1 Garand? Go for it! .22 rifle? They tend to be unreliable, but sure. Lever action 30-30? Do it!
My friend wants to attend, but he/she has never shot before. Can he/she come? This is not a suitable event for a first time shooter. Please contact me to schedule a first class for your friend first.
What can/can’t I bring to the event? Do not consume any alcohol or mind altering substances before or during the shooting. Once we have finished and packed up you are welcome to crack open a cold one if you wish.
Again, please no steel core, armor piercing, incendiary, or tracer ammunition.
