This Wednesday, 3 JULY 2013, we're offering our first "Shooter Down Medical Class." Imagine that you are at the range with a loved one and the unthinkable occurs. You are standing there talking, you hear a bang, and your loved one’s face fills with fear. The shooter next to you was inexperienced and had a piece of hot brass get stuck in an article of clothing, causing him or her to flinch and fire the weapon outside of the lateral limits of the range. (True story. This happened recently at a local range.) You look down and see the blood begin to soak through their clothing and they collapse to the ground. What do you do? Are you prepared? Or will your lack of knowledge lead to the loss of your loved one’s life?
On Point Firearms is proud to notify you of a new course that we will begin offering this July! The “Shooter Down Medical Course: Level 1” is going to be yet another professional (and fun) course that will help those looking to be prepared for a worst case scenario at their local range: a potentially fatal gunshot wound.
The PATG/OPF “Shooter Down Medical Course: Level 1” will be a two to three hour classroom-based course that will have shooters working in groups of two while they identify and address gunshot wounds located in different regions of the human body.
