This month I'm heading to CSAT (Combat Shooting And Tactics) for their Advanced Individual Tactics (AIT) course. For those who aren't familiar with CSAT it's owned and operated by the venerable Paul Howe. For those who aren't familiar with Mr Howe he's former Delta Force and was part of the Black Hawk Down battle. Per his website the description for AIT is: The skills listed below will be covered during AIT both in light/no light environments. Safety Exterior Contact Combat Mindset Single Hallway CQB Basic Live Fire Review Single CQB/T Intersections Range Fire Medical Barricade Work Live Fire Culmination Scenarios Vehicle Bailouts Low Light all of the above This course will focus on the safely resolving active shooter problems wherever they are encountered to include a safe link up with police. Course material will be applicable to civilians, teachers and police. EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Concealment Bag or holster, pistol, eye and ear protection. A hand held light is required, weapon lights are optional. Bring extra batteries and train how you intend to fight. Bring inclement weather gear as required. Students will deploy weapon from concealed carry or Active Shooter bag during all scenarios and range fire. Ammunition Pistol Ball (or duty) 600 rds I'm obviously quite excited for 3 days of nothing but learning from some of the best. My dilemma is which pistol to shoot. Both have lights so that's equal but the PPQ has a threaded barrel so that ups my 'I'm a badass operator' factor. But really though, each has its advantages and since I don't have a 1911 in 9mm these are my top choices. What says the brain trust? This will be my main thread for the class, the 'after action report' and any video I put together.
