Those of us in the Utah Polite Society are very interested in helping other groups develop defensive shooting skills, and would like to offer our assistance to individuals in Box Elder County.
We will conduct a series of dry-fire training sessions during the months of January, February and March of 2009 in Box Elder County. These sessions would allow up to sixteen individuals at each session receive instruction in a basic set of gun-handling skills, shooting techniques, and tactics useful in defensive situations. These will be hands-on sessions where the individuals involved will practice each technique using dry-fire exercises while receiving coaching assistance from Utah Polite Society members. Each of these sessions will focus on a different set of skills and will not require participants to attend previous sessions in order to take advantage of the material covered.
We will conduct a two-day, live-fire event at the Mantua Range in the Spring of 2009. The first day of this event would be devoted to live-fire training and practice in the skill sets covered over the winter months in the dry-fire training sessions. The second day of this event would be devoted to live-fire simulations of defensive encounters that allow the participants to exercise the skills and tactics learned the previous day.
We would like to offer our assistance to individuals in Box Elder County who may be interested in forming a Polite Society chapter. We are willing to help in the fabrication of a basic set of equipment (target stands, uprights, barricades, etc…), and in providing an initial set of pre-cut cardboard targets. Further we are willing to help the individuals involved gain the skills needed to run Polite Society events and assist them in running the first few events held in Box Elder County.
