Guidelines for Defensive Shooting Fundamentals Course

B&B Tactical is excited to have you as a student in our DEFENSIVE SHOOTING FUNDAMENTALS CLASS

Please read this email thoroughly so that you understand the class Requirements, Rules and Guidelines. There are no exceptions to any of our classroom policies without prior, written approval from B&B Tactical. Requests for variances to standard classroom rules can be made by emailing support@bandbtactical.com.

  • Please carefully read the Rules and Guidelines below and provide the REQUIRED information at the bottom.
  • If you paid for MORE THAN ONE PERSON, please forward the registration email to your additional attendees or send an email to support@bandbtactical.com and we will reach out to those people directly. We MUST have this form filled out for EVERY STUDENT.

THIS IS NOT A BEGINNER'S COURSE.

This is a medium-advanced shooting course and we require that all students be CONFIDENT in their abilities to shoot accurately and safely before signing up for this class. We WILL teach you defensive-shooting-specific skills, but this is NOT a "learn to shoot" course. If you need additional practice, please do so on your own using the downloadable targets offered on our "USEFUL INFO" page or reach out to B&B Tactical to schedule individual marksmanship training lessons.

We reserve the right to remove and refund students for persistent or egregious unsafe handling of firearms at any point during this course.

        • Did we mention anything about keeping your gun unloaded and NOT bringing any ammunition into the classroom?
      • A holster for your gun.
        • If you do not have a holster, you can purchase one from us for $10. (See list when signing up for the class or pay in-person)
      • Ear and eye protection
        • These will be used in the classroom and on the range
        • We do sell both if you need them (see list when signing up for the class or pay in-person)
      • Long pants with a STURDY, leather belt in the classroom and on the range

      • Comfortable, close-toed shoes
        • You will be on your feet and moving for a majority of this class

          • You will need 100 rounds of ammunition for this class
          • Leave ALL ammunition LOCKED IN YOUR CAR in accordance with Ohio laws regarding the transportation and storage of firearms.
          • We understand that ammo is expensive and not easy to get. B&B Tactical DOES have access to .22, 9mm, .380 and 38spl at slightly better than retail store rates
          • We can sell ONLY enough for use in the class 
          • See the ammo list and purchase when signing up for the class
        • Bringing ammunition into the class will result in removal from the course
        • NO EXCEPTIONS

        NO POLITICAL DISCUSSION

        • We can discuss specific policy as is appropriate to the class, but at no time will the class comment on specific candidates, parties, or ideologies.
        • You're not changing anyone's mind with a 30 second rant about your stance anyway
        • Save those conversations for social media.

        DUE TO COVID
        • Social distancing and masks are not mandated by current local, state or federal mandates.
        • B&B Tactical isn't the mask or vaccine police. You're an adult and you can make decisions for yourself.
        • Be smart

        FOOD WILL BE PROVIDED IN THE CLASSROOM

        • You are free to bring whatever snacks or non-alcoholic drinks you want to the classroom.
        • B&B Tactical will have donuts, coffee, water and soda when you arrive
        • B&B Tactical will provide food for a working lunch (pizza). If you have specific dietary restrictions, please pack your own lunch and snacks as we aren’t equipped as a catering business and cannot provide custom menus for our students.
        • We generally bring in lunch at 3pm, so please plan accordingly

           

          You will continue to receive emails from B&B Tactical right up to your class date, so monitor your email closely. These emails will include reminders, updates and useful tips that will ensure your training experience is the best it can be.

          I DID NOT pay for the below items during registration, but I DO need the following for the course (check only as this applies to you). B&B Tactical can accept cash or debit/credit card IN THE CLASSROOM to cover these incidentals. 
          IF YOU ALREADY PAID FOR EVERYTHING YOU NEED WHEN YOU SIGNED UP, YOU DON'T HAVE TO REQUEST THEM AGAIN HERE.
