OUR CADRE

GORUCK Firearms Cadre are current or former counter-terrorism soldiers. They come from “Tip of the Spear” Special Operations Units from around the world. They have extensive training and real world experience in firearms; combat marksmanship and counter-terrorism operations as well as years of training on ranges of every type.

Due to the vast experience and flexibility of our Cadre, no two GORUCK Firearms Training Courses are alike. More importantly, each class will develop its own battle rhythm and flow, meaning individuals that demonstrate confidence during the class will be challenged and accelerated at a different rate than the rest of the class.

FIREARMS TRAINING NOTES

  • Firearms Training utilizes semiautomatic pistols or AR-15 platform, however, we offer custom classes on any and all small arms.
  • We offer Glock 19 (9x19mm) pistols upon request in advance, rifles are not available for rent at this time.
  • Shooters who display weapons proficiency will by challenged by the Cadre to increase their skill level by various methods. This will not have an impact on the overall conduct of the class.
  • Please be aware that the only way we can offer this level of training locally is to contract with an outdoor gun range. This means that range constraints may dictate the flow of the day. In some cases the range will offer a “shoot house” or similar which we will utilize toward the end of the day.
  • All participants in Cadre Machine's classes will receive certification for a 35 State Concealed Weapons Permit, valid for 7 years (pistol or rifle)
