Recondo — the class you’ve been waiting for!

Over 60 hours of training in 4 days!

Its finally here, the class you’ve been waiting for — Recondo School! Four completely packed fully immersive days of training with Special Operators on all aspects of patrolling. Learn all there is to know about small team reconnaissance, ambush, and raid.

Starting with the basics, 3-5 man element teams will conduct day and night reconnaissance missions. Next the teams will combine to conduct ambush patrols. The teams grow again to conduct raids on enemy encampments. The final day is live fire battle drills, learning to do everything safely with live ammunition.

Outside of the military nothing like this has ever been offered before. Others have done fantasy camps, no one has run the real deal. Most active duty infantrymen never get a chance for this level of training!

The Details

One of the ultimate expressions of this class was done during the Vietnam War and was known as MACV-RECONDO school. This school was set up by Project Delta (yes, the guys who later founded Delta Force) and then turned over to 5th SFG. This was the basis for LRRP/Ranger type operations in Vietnam. This course will be modeled after that school but with a modern backdrop and modern planning procedures.

Taught by Army Green Berets, Army Rangers, Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol members and other select Special Operations personnel. The best of the best. Each combat patrol will have at least one cadre member and larger patrols will have two or more per patrol. Cadre will be teaching, mentoring, and leading the patrols.

The course will be taught inside of a scenario wargame, just like all military exercises and like the Special Forces Qualification Course which uses “Pineland”. In this course we will be using the scenario of “Red Dawn”. A foreign military force has invaded America and now you are in the resistance fighting against them. Luckily US Army Green Berets have infiltrated your area to provide you training and leadership!

Immersive scenario based training is far more effective than a conventional course. Everything is “real” and has context and pieces learned on one day connect back in later in the scenario. This course will have over a dozen live role players playing the part of the enemy, have real people as part of the “underground” etc. FULLY IMMERSIVE TRAINING. InSights will be offering numerous “linked” courses around this scenario in the future.

Besides the patrolling track we will be offering a Tactical Operations Center track. These are the guys who make the missions run, produce and give intelligence briefings, run radio networks, debrief teams after missions, coordinate with underground forces and assets, meet and interview intelligence sources, “Battle track” teams and the enemy. Learn intelligence preparation of the battlefield, operational security, and tradecraft for the resistance environment. The TOC track is perfect for those who might not be up for four days and nights of moving through the woods but who still want to learn to contribute to the team.

Summer send-off — save 10-33% on selected classes!

Save 15% when you combine General Defensive Rifle and Intermediate Defensive Rifle

General Defensive Rifle is an action-packed 3-day class that will give you a solid defensive rifle foundation. Safety, marksmanship, carry positions, firing positions, reloads, movement, tactics, low-light, recommended gear and much more! If you want to learn to run your rifle, this is the premiere rifle class to do it. GDR is September 21-23 at West Coast Armory in Bellevue.

Intermediate Defensive Rifle will take you the rest of the way! Increase your abilities at Close Quarters Marksmanship, and become a total “rifleman” with the ability to shoot to the potential of your rifle. IDR will challenge you!

For the CQM portion of the course, we will spend significant time in the ranges of 0–50 meters mastering speed and accuracy while using available cover and movement as is required in Urban Combat situations. The Rifleman portion of the course will be spent examining and testing the shooter’s abilities at 100–600 meters. This is a chance to find out what the maximum capabilities of you and your equipment are. Intermediate Defensive Rifle is October 19-21 at Ravensdale, WA.

GDR is the perfect prep for IDR — get 15% off when you do both. But if you can’t fit them both in, we’ll still give you 10% off either one!

Save 33% on Intensive Handgun Skills retakes

Outdoor IHS means shooting steel! This is a perfect course for the shooter who wants to maximize their use of the handgun for self-defense or the competitive shooter who could use fine-tuning of their technique. The principles of economy of motion and economy of time will be stressed throughout. Also included are long-range exercises, barricade drills, movement, shooting while moving, and more. After this course you will be shooting faster and with a greater degree of accuracy than ever before.

Retake IHS and save 33% — shoot the steel we couldn’t shoot indoors! If it’s your first time through, we’ll still give you 10% off. Intensive Handgun Skills is October 5-7 at Ravensdale, WA.

Intermediate Defensive Rifle is set for October!

Increase your abilities at Close Quarters Marksmanship, and become a total “rifleman” with the ability to shoot to the potential of your rifle. IDR will challenge you!

For the CQM portion of the course, we will spend significant time in the ranges of 0–50 meters mastering speed and accuracy while using available cover and movement as is required in Urban Combat situations. This portion will be fast moving and the constantly changing drills and environment will challenge the shooter’s mental and physical abilities.

The Rifleman portion of the course will be spent examining and testing the shooter’s abilities at 100–600 meters. This is a chance to find out what the maximum capabilities of you and your equipment are. Intermediate Defensive Rifle is October 19-21 at Ravensdale, WA. Call the office to register.

Shoot Intensive Handgun outdoors

October is a great month to shoot outside — the sweltering days are over, the cold days haven’t begun. And what better way to welcome fall than Intensive Handgun Skills. Make a giant leap forward in your speed and accuracy — and nothing builds speed like shooting steel. Intensive Handgun Skills is October 5-7 at Ravensdale, WA. Call the office to register.
