Course Description: The Gun For Hire Level 3 Carbine course is for students wishing to push themselves and their carbines to the limits. This course is not for the faint hearted or new shooter. This 8-hour course starts with a quick review of fundamental drills and then moves right into advanced high level shooting and stress drills. The student will learn how to employ their carbine in the urban setting out to 200 yards. The course involves high level shooting and moving drills both as an individual and in buddy teams. Students will learn proper techniques for fighting in and around vehicles using live-fire stress drills. The student will also be shown advanced building search and room clearing techniques to include follow-on rooms and hallways.
Who teaches this course? All of our high-level courses are taught by experienced professionals with the credentials to prove it. They are all trained and certified by the N.J. Police Training Commission, N.J. Department of Criminal Justice, and posses Federal Law Enforcement Instructor Certifications. They are experts in N.J. Use of Force Policies, and are always updating the course material with the latest use of force guidelines and case law. At GFH this is not a “hobby” but a full time, legitimate vocation. Any " instructor” can teach you anything, but only a select few can teach you the "why" or the "root of law" to justify your actions. If you were to use your newly acquired skills and you were required to justify your actions, at GFH all of our instructors are ready, willing, and able to testify in your defense as long as you had followed the training and procedures we provided. It does you and your loved one’s no good if you survive the fight, and then spend the next thirty years in prison because of the wrongful advice you were given by a part time amateur “instructor”.
