The single most important step toward ensuring your own safety is having a personal safety strategy in place before you need it. NRA’s Refuse To Be A Victim® program teaches the tips and techniques you need to be alerted to dangerous situations and to avoid becoming a victim.  The Refuse To Be A Victim® program is not a firearms or self-defense class. It’s a seminar that will help you improve personal safety strategies and will provide you with valuable information that you can apply in every area of your life.

  SIMULATOR TRAINING

PROTECTION IN AND OUT OF THE HOUSE:

This course is designed for the individuals who want to protect themselves, their loved ones and their personal property.   You will have an introduction to the firearm and some hands on with the firearms just to get a little more comfortable. Then the training really starts RAMPING UP. SIMTAC Services offers over 700+ scenarios with real life actors. Most scenarios can be controlled by the system operator to raise the scenario to lethal or non-lethal force and having the subject comply. Your actions can determine how your scenario ends. Each individual can run through one scenario with several different outcomes. Do the math……700+scenarios with multiple outcomes…….That’s a lot of different variables and a lot of training.

Examples of the scenarios’ include Home Invasion, Burglary, Car Jacking, Robbery, Assaults and many more!! The more you train the better prepared you will be. Don’t just leave your gun in the closet or in the drawer only shooting it once in a while; and when you do decide to shoot, what are you shooting at? Tin cans or paper targets that don’t move and are not going to hurt you or your children?

Train with SIMTAC Services and we can help you understand what the mind and body go through when you actually have to respond to someone kicking in your door or attempting to assault you or your loved ones!!

Save your ammunition for when you go to the range and shoot at those tin cans or non-moving targets. Our system uses real guns that recoil, giving you the feel of shooting without firing a single bullet. The guns we use are filled with compressed Co2 gas and supported by a laser guided system for accurate shot placement. The guns SIMTAC Services use that recoil are the Glock 21, Glock 22, Sig P226, AR/M4 carbine rifle and Remington 870 shotgun.

 

SKILL BUILDING:

Together with SIMTAC Services we can continue to build proper skills and training. No matter what your skill level is; from the novice to the professional, SIMTAC Services’ skill building sessions can hone your skills to become a better shot. Whether it’s shooting one of over 150 pre-loaded course of fire or we can customize a course just for your training needs. We have multiple lanes of fire and shooting distances from 3ft. to 300 yards.  Other skill builders include exercises ranging from plate shooting, target practice to pop-up targets and many more.   You can increase your skills while having fun but most importantly, SAVING A TON OF MONEY ON AMMUNITION!!
