A Call to Arms…and a Call to Training!

Since our instructor team implemented our “Active Shooter Takedown” mixers for CCW permit holders, shooters have experienced the adrenalin rush while taking on hostile targets in multiple practical shooting scenarios.

The number one comment often heard following their down range experience was,

“Wow, it looks like I need more training.”

Shooting nice groups at static paper cannot possibly compare to shooting while on the move and seeking cover. The State Police will sign off on a concealed carry permit providing an applicant successfully qualifies with 30 well placed shots while behind the line. The question remains, however, is if a permit holder is truly satisfied with his ability to react in a confident and decisive manner if ever the need arises.

Many of us in the firearms training industry, and those CCW grads who have trained with us, understand the physical, psychological, and emotional effects on a human being thrust into a real-world deadly force situation.

Your peripheral vision narrows, dexterity and detailed motor skills shut down as capillaries restrict blood flow, and denial that the dangerous situation before you is really happening is the deadliest factor of all.

The only proven method to combat these primal forces is to prepare for the situation over and over in your mind and through combat shooting drills.

Regular training breeds quality performance.

Quality performance breeds confidence.

Confidence in your abilities engenders mindset.

A clear mindset prepares the armed citizen for appropriate decisive action.

Criminals and vicious psychopaths are not the only threat anymore. Terrorists walk among us in our cities and suburbs ready to go into action as a lone wolf or as part of an organized cell.

The call for interactive and advanced firearms training has never been more necessary than it is today.

The OnTarget training staff has trained thousands in our four years of being in business. The number of trained individuals grows to hundreds of thousands if we take into consideration our combined real world experiences as Policemen, Soldiers, Marines, and Special Agents.

OnTarget applauds those of you who took the first step by taking our beginner classes…but please don’t stop there with a false sense of security. We do understand that the current state of the economy presents an obstacle to many shooters who want the advanced training.

In order to facilitate the participation of more good citizens, our skills and drills mixers offer a very unique shooting experience at an affordable price.  We would much rather make a little less income and be rewarded with the satisfaction that our customers leave here with an advanced performance level, more confidence, and the necessary mindset to protect loved ones and innocent fellow Americans.

Please allow OnTarget to continue as your resource for shooting excellence and take advantage of our instructors’ experience along with some dynamic trigger time on the other side of the shooting bench.

Walk softly with the peace of mind that you have the skills…and more importantly, the practical skills to deal with an active shooter situation.
