Our training focus…
In an armed conflict, you will be required to call on your “tool-box” of skills to prevail. Your foundational skills are combined in various ways to engage the attack and effectively stop the threat. The day of YOUR gunfight…you will arrive with the skills you have made permanent and practiced to a level of competence. Competition short-cuts, range gimmicks and cool moves you tried many times and accomplished occasionally will only serve your attacker. Meridian Tactical places our coaching emphasis and training doctrine in the pursuit of the best-practices for defensive skills. Timers and the sense of competition can create a small amount of stress while performing the skills…and this is helpful to challenge what we believe we can accomplish under stress. It is also making the training more fun, and provide a way to measure progress and improvement.

Defensive Skill Drills (DSD)

The DSD classes are a great laboratory to ‘test’ the skills we believe we have made permanent…and an excellent way to hone those ‘perishable’ skills. Defensive skills are those skills we can effectively execute under the extreme stress of our gunfight. DSD is focused on drills to challenge those skills.

DSD classes are held 3 times each month, at the Longmont Police Training Center. The facility is a 10 lane wide, 100 yard long indoor range. Each of the 3 classes per month are limited to 15 students. The 3 classes in a given month are the same…repeated to allow 45 students to go through the training per month. Each month the drills are changed…and never repeated. The two courses each night will focus on certain skills that a defensive conflict would potentially require. The realistic courses use multiple targets arrayed to require movement, various positional shooting, reloads, target transitions, one-hand shooting, use of cover and always a focus on the ability to maintain accuracy. The Law Enforcement facility allows us to create courses that would be impossible in the average range.

Steel Action Challenge (SAC)

Steel Action Challenge events are held 5 times each year at Great Guns Range near Nunn Colorado. In the action bay area, Great Guns has built a complex of dirt bunkers with various training structures built in them. We utilize 5 of these bays, setting ALL steel targets in positions to require the student to navigate the course in each bunker, engaging the steel targets while using solid tactical skills and excellent marksmanship. Like the DSD classes, this is very much challenging the foundational skills that you need to prevail in your gunfight. The physical structures and outdoor range add a very realistic feal to the courses. The targets all being steel…allows the courses to flow very quickly, provides instant feedback to the shooter, and provides an undeniable level of ‘fun’ for the event. ALSO – your range fee for the use of Great Guns is paid for the day! Stay and make use of any of the ranges Pistol, Rifle or shotgun at the facility. (Shotgun ranges require you pay for the targets) Normally 25.00 this makes signing up for SAC an even better value…and make it a day of shooting fun.

Steel Action Challenge SKILL BUILDER classes. During the afternoon of some of the SAC events, we hold SKILL BUILDER classes. These are 2 hour classes with a smaller group size. We focus on specific skills that critical to effective gunfighting, and we use the SAC course to practice the specific skills. The instructors spend time with each shooter to coach and improve their skills.

Private Training

Meridian Tactical offers custom private classes for a variety of firearm training.
PISTOL – RIFLE – SHOTGUN
Individual or small groups, we design a class (or series of trainings) that is focused on performance based training and your specific goals.
Custom classes provide great value vs. a large format class. Having much more attention from the instructor, combined with a curriculum that is concentrated on the skills you need. Less time spent on drills for skills you have accomplished, and more time really advancing your abilities.

Maybe you are trying to build the skills to survive your next gunfight…or simply trying to perform better in your next match. You might be trying to make the SWAT team, or simply looking for a private way to have your family get comfortable with the firearms you own…we can create the training experience that you are looking for.

Tac-Med Classes

The Meridian Tac-Med (Tactical Medical) classes are practical ‘hands-on’ classes that are focused on 1st responder skills that can save lives. These are techniques that are intended for the pre-hospital…pre-paramedic moments that give the victim the best chance to survive. Obviously, this applies to the “active-shooter” scenes, hunting or firearm training…but also everyday incidents. Car crashes, work place accidents, even off-roading, snowmobiling or other adventure sports.

This lass is a 6 hour training, but we also customize the class to a 4-hour session for work-place training and a 2-hour session for clubs, ranges, gun shows and other similar events.
