We offer limited open enrollment classes and private classes. For a private class, you need to contact HH6 via email and detail what class you want, and where the class is to be held. That allows us to determine our expenses, in order to give you a price quote. You then gather the funds from the participant within your group. Open enrollment classes are $500 per shooter. Minors attending open enrollment classes in the accompaniment of a paying parent or guardian can attend the class for ½ the cost.
Necessary facilities for different classes vary, but are detailed in the class descriptions below. Some leeway is available in facility requirements, but not much, depending on the class.
With the exception of the two-day Grid-Down Medical class, all courses are now four-day classes.
This is a beginner to novice level class on how to run your gun effectively under tactical field conditions. Beginning with basic square range work out to 200+ meters, it focuses on the fundamentals of marksmanship and effective gun-handling as an individual, before moving into working with a partner.
This class requires a fighting rifle, a minimum of four magazines (for magazine fed rifles), and some method of carrying those magazines effectively.
Clandestine Carry Pistol
Focused on the use of the pistol for the underground, this course focuses on basic gun-handling under combative conditions, as well as the necessary mental and combative skills needed to protect the gun, and fight your way to the gun.
Two days of this course are straight range time, before moving into gym work with combatives and FoF iterations. This is an extremely physically demanding course, and involves violent physical contact with other students. If you leave without cuts, scrapes, and bruises, I’ll be surprised.
This class requires an effective carry pistol and a concealed carry holster for that pistol. It also requires a minimum of two spare magazines, and magazine pouches to carry those magazines. A mouthguard and athletic cup for men are HIGHLY recommended. For FoF iterations, a long-sleeved sweatshirt are recommended.
Grid-Down Medical Care
This two-day class covers the Care Under Fire and Tactical Field Care phases of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3), as well as CASEVAC and long-term care under austere conditions. I’m not a medic, although I’ve taught TC3 for a long time, so I had an 18D Special Forces Medical NCO collaborate with me on the development of the POI, and provide a critical look at the POI before adopting it.
This course incorporates lecture and demonstration, as well as extensive hands-on practical exercises.
Required equipment includes whatever your basic fighting load and weapon, as well as an IFAK/BOK (Individual First Aid Kit/Blow-Out Kit). The IFAK should include—minimally—an appropriately sized nasopharyngeal airway device (FR28 is the normal size for the typical adult), chest seals, battlefield dressing, compressed gauze, and an appropriate combat tourniquet.
This four day class covers the fundamental individual and collective critical skills tasks needed to conduct effective light-infantry patrols in an irregular force environment. This class is complete field-based, so expect to sleep on the ground, living out of your Bug-Out Bag for the duration of the course.
This course requires, a fighting rifle and a minimum of five magazines, load-bearing equipment to carry the magazines, and your normal bug-out bag, packed for a minimum of 72 hours.
(In the past, I’ve been too nice as an instructor, and let guys return to the trucks at the end of the training day. This is no longer the case, so expect to literally, live out of your ruck. HTFU)
Close-Quarters Battle (CQB)/Fighting in Built-Up Areas
This class is only available for private class environments, and requires that the group has previously taken a patrolling/small-unit tactics course from an acceptable instructor or course previously. It covers external movement in built-up areas, close-quarters marksmanship, and room-clearing methods, before spending the last day covering the hardening of structures to deter or slow entry teams.
This class includes both live-fire room entries in daylight and low-light, and FoF iterations with Sims.
This class is only available for private class environments, and requires that the group has previously taken a patrolling/small-unit tactics course from an acceptable instructor or course previously. It covers various patrolling formations and techniques with vehicles, as well as immediate-action battle drills for two-man and larger vehicle crews.
