There’s a Utah Polite Society Event at Hendricksen Range in Parleys Canyon
east of Salt Lake City (I-80 exit #134) on Saturday, March 7.
At this month’s Utah Polite Society event, we plan to have four handgun
The first exercise is a skills drill that requires you to get off the ‘X’
and employ rapid movement while engaging a threat. This exercise consists
of four strings incorporating movement in four different directions.
The second exercise is a simulated defensive encounter that takes place as
you exit an elevator in a parking garage. Each of the targets involved in
the simulation will be designated by a number, and the RO will conduct
this as an interactive exercise by telling you what actions the different
targets are taking and which, if any, present threats.
The third exercise is another skills drill that uses four targets placed
at 4 and 6 yards and requires all shooting and gun manipulation to be
performed with only one hand as you move laterally to the targets.
Transitioning the gun from hand to hand as you reverse direction is also
The fourth exercise is another simulated defensive encounter that takes
place at an ATM. Again, the targets will be numbered and the RO will call
out threats as the simulation progresses.
If there is enough interest, we will hold a three-hour defensive shooting
class concurrent with the event. This class is intended for those new to
defensive shooting and is included in the event fee.
Set up starts at 8:00 a.m.
Registration starts at 8:25 a.m.
New shooter orientation starts at 8:30 a.m.
Handgun shooting exercises start at 9:00 a.m.
Event fee is $12.00.
Please bring the gun, holster, magazine carriers and any other equipment
you use for concealed carry as well as 100 rounds of ammunition. For
range safety reasons we ask that any holsters used in our events allow
drawing your handgun without muzzle sweeping yourself or bystanders. This
typically precludes use of shoulder holsters and many cross-draw holsters.
