Novato Shoothouse


Our Home Defense Scenarios class has been designed for people who are new to force on force training. We provide a safe learning environment in which an instructor will guide you through the strategies, techniques, and legal considerations of a dangerous encounter in your home. Over an eight hour course you will:

* Learn tactical concepts such as slicing the pie, communication, and concealment vs. cover.
* Discuss the mental elements of a hostile encounter, including executing a plan under stress.
* Evaluate decisions made in the heat of the moment in a group environment.
* Participate in four real-world scenarios with our roleplayers which will involve you either carrying or having access to a firearm.

Our scenarios are not simply “shoot/no-shoot” exercises, and our dedicated roleplayers are not just living targets. They are characters, all of whom have different priorities and motivations. Some will run, some will fight, some will negotiate. All will react to you, including how you carry yourself and when and if you decide to present your weapon and shoot. There are multiple paths to choose, and each choice will be discussed at length in a group setting with students and staff.

In this class, our roleplayers and participants will be armed with the same UTM converted Glock 17 handguns used in law enforcement training and will be shooting UTM Man Marker Rounds. Roleplayers will react realistically when hit.

This class is suitable for beginner and intermediate level shooters. While we are more interested in testing your decision-making, participants should be confident in their ability to safely operate a firearm. Please view our FAQ for more information.
