    Precision Applications, LLC will be holding a Stress ThReat Engagement Skill Shooting (STRESS) Course on Saturday, March 16, 2019 in Aragon GA.

    Course will start at 7am and run until 5pm with a 1 hour break for lunch.

    The entire day's events are designed to force the shooter to engage targets with both a carbine and a handgun, at a minimum, while being subjected to various physical and mental stressors and performing a myriad of challenging tasks.

    This course is designed to push the individual student to their limits and outside their "comfort zone". It is a physically and mentally demanding course, but the drills are designed so that, for the most part, the individual student can perform within their physical limitations and at their skill level.......although this is not to say you ain't gonna be pushed! Our goal as Instructors is to push YOU to YOUR individual limits, and at times a bit beyond. Not everyone is an Olympic-level athlete....... you aren't required to be, we don't expect you to be, and you do not need to be in order to attend this course.

    All drills will use a combination of multiple threats, “no shoot/friendly” targets, targets partially occluded by hard cover, steel targets, moving targets and more. This is NOT a “plant your feet and shoot on the flat range at a single target” class!

    Topics covered will include, but are not limited to:
    -Effects of stress on the body
    -How to counteract these stresses and train to minimize the effects
    -How to best perform under the stresses you cannot get rid of
    -Combat Mindset
    -Carbine ready positions
    -Shooting while moving
    -Shooting from either shoulder

    Gear list:
    Carbine with sling
    Minimum of 2 reloads for the carbine on your person
    Handgun with holster. A certain level of retention is not required, but the handgun must be retained under physical exertion.
    Minimum of 2 reloads for the handgun on your person
    500rds carbine ammo; no tracer, armor piercing or incendiary rounds
    200rds handgun ammo
    Eye and ear protection
    Hat with front brim. If you prefer a helmet, then wear it.
    If you would normally use body armor, plates, vest, carrier, etc., then wear it.
    Plenty of water
    *All of the gear on your person must be retained during strenuous exercise

    The course is limited to 12 students.

    Course fee is $300 paid in advance. We accept checks, money orders, cash and discrete PayPal (you pay the 3.5% fees, no "gifts" please). Your spot is not guaranteed until your course fee is received.

    Semper Fi!

    I have to make time next year to take one of your courses, hopefully this one. This sounds like a great course, especially for edc citizens who do not face stressors day in and day out in a defensive environment.

    Yes, I am the Chief Instructor. If the class size gets big enough, I’ll bring in an Assistant.

    No prereqs. You need to be able to operate all the controls on your chosen handgun and carbine, and clear simple malfunctions.

    This course should help you deal with working under stress, as well as learning ways to manage it. Nearly everyone that has taken it has told me it really opened their eyes and showed them holes in their training and gear.
