Time:                      1:00 to 6:00 pm

Have you ever thought of what may happen should you become involved in a negligent shooting at the range, while hunting at the cabin, or an unintentional discharge while cleaning your gun at home? WORSE, what if you are in the mall or big box store when the loser goes berserk and starts shooting the place up, and you, your loved one, or others are shot?

These are things we don’t want to think about, but based on recent events it’s a real possibility. Famed expert trainer in civilian defensive shooting and use of force, Massad Ayoob, says it best.  “Know where the attack will come from and have a proven, practiced, defense in place”.  In short, HAVE A PLAN, HAVE THE TOOLS, HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE!  And TRAIN!

The Range of Richfield is proud to host Robert Zenoni, Owner of Midwest Civilian Aid Trainers, LLC class on the Immediate Treatment of Gunshot Wounds.  This class is offered both with and without an Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK).  You will receive the same instruction either way, and you will be using our training equipment, not the supplies in your NEW IFAK.  Modern-day IFAKS are not the first aid kits we all received when we were Boy Scouts, these are serious life-saving kits that are not meant to be deployed for boo-boo’s.

Although not sanctioned by any medical authority, this class is designed for the civilian, layman and first responder as a learning tool to broaden his/her knowledge base for rendering aid to others or him/her self in dire circumstances.

This five hour training session will introduce the layman to the basic aid which needs to be rendered to a gunshot victim in the home, hunting cabin, street, while hunting or on the shooting range.  We will also present a detailed plan for rendering aid to victims in hazardous or high threat situations.  THIS IS NOT A GENERAL FIRST AID COURSE, and will be tailored to the specific traumatic injuries due to a gunshot wound.  Although a medical class, everyday language will be used and the participant will have the ability to ask as many questions as desired.  This class includes a PowerPoint presentation with lecture and will have hands on training in the use of each item in an IFAK for both self-applied lifesaving measures and as a “buddy aid” lifesaving measure.  Discussion and questions will be encouraged.

 

How to Carry and Properly Use O.C. (Pepper) Spray for Self Defense

Date:                       Thursday, February 1st

Time:                      6:00 to 8:00 pm

Tuition:                  $50.00*

Class Size:              38

Instructor:              Robert Zenoni, Owner – Midwest Civilian Aid Trainers, LLC

Enroll:                   Click to Register

Having options is always a good thing.  Right?  In self-defense, it is a MUST. 

There are places where the possession of a concealed firearm is not allowed by law, and other places where you cannot carry a firearm because the Owner of that location has decided not to allow it.  In these non-permissible places, it’s good to have options for self-defense.

This class will discuss methods to improve situational awareness in your everyday life, an overview of the Use of Force both in Law Enforcement and as a Civilian, the statutes and laws in the state of Wisconsin as it applies to Chemical Irritants and finally, the carry and proper use of Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) Spray, otherwise known as Pepper Spray.

This class will be in the form of a PowerPoint presentation, lecture, and hands on training with inert spray products used for training purposes.  YES, you will get a chance to actually spray a safe product to get the “feel” of how to use your real O.C. Spray.

Completion of this class will give you, your spouse, your daughter or son, grandma…. whomever, the confidence and skills needed to handle a threatening encounter.  *As a bonus, students will get a 10% discount on in-store SABRE Spray products.
