For an overview of upcoming events, take a look at the Training Calendar.
In addition to the standard tactical training (TacGun) events coming up, we have several events which specifically feature an element of competition.
What is TacGun? A brief synopsis:
Tacgun is: team focused, utilizing small unit tactics via force on force and live fire training and competition, in order to develop teamwork, physical fitness and leadership skills.
This TacGun event also features an optional CQB Intro day on Friday 3 November.
TacGun Force on Force is an excellent training event utilizing UTM Man Marker Rounds to create close combat conditions where you will be expected to utilize teamwork, communication and leadership. This is also an excellent way to bring friends and family in to tactical training. You will work in teams, using your own AR rifle and optics, and fight a live enemy in the woods and buildings of the VTC. There is a strong element of training to this event, plus an element of competition. This is also great preparation for the other upcoming TacGun events, covered below.
This event is under construction and is planned to be scheduled on a weekend in April 2018. In outline, it will feature (each event separate and voluntary):
The TacGun Challenge is scheduled for June 23-24 2018. This event brings together most of the elements of TacGun (small unit tactics tactical training) over a 2 day competition.
There are 8 Core Events that will be tested at each Challenge. There are no training prerequisites, but competence at the core skills will be expected. The TacGun Challenge will be run as a team event (4 person teams). You can bring a team, or for individuals, teams will be allocated at the Challenge. Events will be conducted either as a team or as individual best effort, with the results collated to determine team placing. Events will use either live fire or UTM force on target or force on force as appropriate – see the detailed description.
There will be 8 Core Events. These events will consist of individual and team challenges. Tasks will be assessed both objectively and subjectively: individual events will be assessed for time and successful task completion; team events will be assessed for successful task completion, teamwork and effort.
