Once again I was asked to be one of the (RSO) Range Safety Officer’s for this MAG 40 event. If you can attend the live shooting portion of this event do it, you will not be sorry.  Both portions of this training are superb. Training at this event is by one of the top instructors in the United States. The live fire portion fills up fast

The course will culminate with a police-style qualification course.  Come prepared to leave a better shooter under stress.

   July 13th – 14th MAG 20 Armed Citizens Judicial use of Lethal Force Seminar.    Unlimited Seating.

        Massad Ayoob, founder of the Massad Ayoob Group, needs little introduction in shooting circles. Mas is one of the best known self-defense and firearms trainers in the world. He has been teaching police officers since 1974, and civilians since 1981. His landmark book, In the Gravest Extreme, continues to be one of the best texts on the civilian use of lethal force. Mas routinely consults and testifies as a firearms and self-defense expert across the country. In addition to his legal acumen, Mas is a skilled shooter, being one of only eleven people in the world to earn a Five Gun Master ranking in IDPA.  What an outstanding opportunity in today’s climate to gain this knowledge from a world leader in the firearm arena.

Massad Ayoob on RangeI Just spent the last 4 days with Massad Ayoob in Greeley Colorado. One of my friends Hershell Phillips from Centerfire Training asked me if I would be an RSO (Range Safety Officer) for the event and of course I said yes. We had about 23 shooters in 20 hours of range time at Great Guns in 2 days.

Massad Ayoob is a firearms and self-defense instructor. He has taught police techniques and civilian self-defense to both law enforcement officers and private citizens in numerous venues since 1974. He was the director of the Lethal Force Institute (LFI) in Concord, New Hampshire from 1981 to 2009, and now directs the Massad Ayoob Group (MAG). Massad has appeared as an expert witness in many trials. He has served as a part-time police officer in New Hampshire since 1972 and holds the rank of Captain in the Grantham, New Hampshire police department. He currently is the author of approximately 20 books on the subject and writes for several of the top gun magazines in the country. For almost 30 years, there was only one training center where the private citizens could get the same level of training as police academies or law schools – or higher – in what the criminal justice system calls “Judicious use of Deadly Force”

The Class MAG-20 Armed Citizen’s Judicial use of Lethal Force is a two day twenty hour immersion course in the use of the defensive handgun under extreme stress. Each student shot approximately 500 rounds learned proper draw from concealment, two-handed stances, shooting from cover, one-handed stances with either hand, speed reloading, and more are taught with an overall emphasis on fast, accurate shot placement. The course ended with a police-style qualification course.

It was everything Hershell promised and more, at the end of the second day I got to qualify with the class and I shot the course. 60 rounds-timed in 5 stages, different stances, distances, and hand holds out to 45 feet. I shot a 90% with no warm up or practice. Stop by my class room and see the IPSC Target signed by Massad himself.

The next two days was the Mag-20 immersion course in rules of engagement for armed law-abiding private citizens, emphasizing legal issues, tactical issues, and aftermath management. Topics included interacting with suspects, witnesses, responding police officers, threat recognition and mind-set, management of social and psychological aftermath after having had to use lethal force in defense of self or others and preparing beforehand for legal repercussions and minimizing exposure to them. Situations in the home, at the place of business, or “on the street” were all covered,

Mag-40 Class

After the exam Sunday night and the final goodbyes to new friends and graduates of the Mag-40 class. I shook Mas’s hand and headed for home.  This was bar-none  the best training I have ever been involved in. Massad comes to Colorado at least once a year. I will try to keep everyone informed of his next visit. You will not want to miss it.
