Training is tailored to your requirements. You will be listened to and your standard assessed, allowing us to offer thoughts and tailored training packages to best suit your progression. ‘Crawl, Walk, Run’ progression will be applied as necessary. Training is not about humiliating the student, but building them up and progressing. You don’t need to be ‘high speed’ to show up for training; it is designed to take people with varying level of experience and bring them up to a higher tactical standard. Rest and revision will be built in as appropriate. On the other hand, you will be progressed as far as your performance and skill level allows.
Max Velocity Tactical is not about offering simple square range shooting, although the basics will be covered as required, moving onto combat shooting and use of fire positions. You will come and train with us to garner the benefits of tactical movement and field firing. You will be trained in real tactics that have been proven in combat.
Camping: Tent camping is available by prior arrangement. It is rudimentary backwoods camping; facilities include the latrine and picnic tables. Please note that the location of the site means that your vehicles are parked some 800 meters away and access to the training site/campsite is via ATV trail over a ridge. A Ranger Crew 6-seater is available and is used to shuttle personnel and equipment in and out of the training site/campsite. There is also the option to walk, carrying as much equipment as you like. If you are camping, you will need to hump in your gear or utilize the Ranger. Note that during the summer months the creeks are dry except after heavy rain. We will support you as much as we can while you are camping which has included in the past providing hot coffee, breakfast burritos and also solar showers filled with hot water at the end of the training day! We will ensure you have enough water for washing and drinking and any other basics that you may need.
Age minimums: Attendance by families is encouraged, as are females attending training. Past students have included multiple father and son teams, husband and wife (discount available HERE) and a father and daughter team. Teenagers are allowed to train, down to the age of 15. The requirement for anyone under 18 is parental supervision, that they have a mature teachable attitude, and that they are competent at weapons manipulation prior to showing up.
West Virginia code on age and Firearms: “Persons under the age of 18 may not carry or possess firearms unless on family premises or on other property with permission of the owner or lessee.” Students attending my training will be on private land ad will have permission to train with firearms and live fire.
