Bristlecone Scenario Based Training and the Bristlecone Shoot House

Are you looking to take the next step with your firearms training?  Scenario Based Training and the Bristlecone Shoot House may be right for you.  Read about this cutting edge training technique below. 

Bristlecone Scenario Based Training 

What is Scenario Based Training? 

Scenario Based Training is the latest training technique that is available to civilians.  At Bristlecone, we use Simunitions (need trademark symbol)-converted live firearms and corresponding ammunition, protective gear, holsters and other environment specific aids to give students a safe and realistic experience within emotionally charged and realistic scenarios played out in the Bristlecone Shoot House.  Students will get a practical sense of their response to concealed carry situations when their adrenalin is high and they are required to call upon their previous training to respond.

Bristlecone Shoot House

What is a Shoot House? 

The Bristlecone Shoot House is a training environment with moveable walls, furniture and appliances that can be arranged to create a number of scenarios for students to participate in.  It gives students the opportunity to  hone their skills in a venue that approaches real world conditions.   

In addition to the Shoot House environment, our Scenario Based Training also incorporates our Ti Outdoors Virtual Simulator.  The Ti Outdoors Virtual Simulator is a state of the art training tool in which realistic scenarios are presented to the student to test and evaluate their responses and reactions in a digital environment.

Students are debriefed directly following each scenario (digital or Shoot House), giving them an opportunity to discuss their responses and reactions with the instructor while the experience is still top of mind. 

Look for scenario only training opportunities on our calendar here.

What our students say:

“I was part of the reality based training scenario day in early February, 2017 and can honestly say that anyone who carries a gun for personal protection NEEDS to take this class.  The class is exactly what is says, you are placed in any number of situations where you need to react as you would in a real world situation.  The situations we were placed in definitely got the pulse beating a bit quicker and the adrenaline pumping and you are guaranteed to forget you are in a training scenario.  Everything needed to find out how you react when push comes to shove.” ~ February 2017 Student

“I originally signed up for the Women’s Only CCW class but was offered the opportunity to sign up for the pilot class for the CCW Reality-Based training. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this class, however it exceeded any expectations I had. Not only was it educational, but it was fun and taught by a great team of instructors.

The class was great for shooters with all levels of experience. Being a novice shooter, I was apprehensive at first. However, the class was far from intimidating, and the instructors ensured that everyone was comfortable. The Reality-Based training allowed for me to help reinforce the theories learned in class.

I encourage women who are looking for a great class to learn how to shoot and want to obtain their CCW to sign up for this class. I took Women’s Intro to Pistol before this class and I recommend that class too. Thank you Bristlecone for your awesome instructors!”  ~ 2016 Student
