Some Issues with my 2017 Schedule

By Roger Phillips, Owner and Operator of Fight Focused Concepts.

Unfortunately, some over-saturation issues have arisen with my home range, Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club (BRPC.) I consider myself very lucky to have had such an outstanding relationship with my home range for over 11 years. But, due to a huge number of new Instructors coming over from other ranges, this easy and prefect relationship has become more difficult and less ideal. I do not write this as a form of complaint, I write this so all of my students understand that my world has substantially changed. These changes will directly affect the scheduling of my classes and the convenience of my students. I will continue my outstanding relationship with BRPC, but it will not be with the same ease, regularity, and convenience as it was in the past.

I will no longer be able to schedule courses months in advance. There will only be a 60 day notice between securing the range and running the course. I will no longer be able to schedule courses on the courtesy ranges, on the weekends, except for the two Instructors bay. I will no longer be able to schedule longer range courses on the weekends. The competition to schedule courses has increased significantly.

With that said, I will be needing to re-evaluating everything that I have done in the past, in regards to my local courses.

I am putting out an open call to all of my students, to see if there is anything that they can do to facilitate securing a range, in order for me to continue teaching courses on a regular basis and that will allow for me to schedule courses well in advance. The guidelines for hosting a course can be found here.

I am also putting out an open call for securing venues to teach my CQB courses. Those guidelines can be found here.

Together we can overcome this set back and do what needs to be done to make it nothing more than a minor obstacle.

April 2-3, 2016 – Las Vegas NV – Rifle For Gunfighters Co-instructed by Colby Rupert and Roger Phillips ($350)

FRS Reno 102

This fast pace, two-day, fight focused rifle course will be co-instructed by Colby Rupert (ninpo_student) and Roger Phillips of Fight Focused Concepts, with Colby taking the lead role and Roger acting in a support role.

Mr. Rupert has over 10 years of decorated experience in the combat arms community on active duty in both the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps. He left the service honorably as a staff NCO and held multiple leadership billets from Fire Team and Squad Leader to Platoon Sergeant. Colby is now a Firefighter/Paramedic with a large southern Nevada Fire Dept.

I am honored to have the chance to bring this course to my student base. Colby has not only proven himself, over and over again, during his accomplished military career, he has also proven himself to be an exemplary Instructor. The combination of relevant real world experience and the ability to care enough about people, to instruct at the highest levels is a very rare combination. Do not miss this special event because it is sure to be a great over all experience.

This course will be shot out to 200 yards, from atypical positions. A properly zeroed rifle is a must and auxiliary rifle gear capable of holding at least 5 magazines is highly recommended.

1000 rounds and as always, bring more if you want to shoot more.FRS Reno 019

Couples, Families, and Teams – Introduction to Defensive Handgun

This one day (six hours) course is specifically designed for the people out there that would like to train with the people who mean the most to them. Throughout the years. I have had many people request courses that are geared towards couples, families, and teams. The fact is that many people do not train due to not being comfortable training solo or with their loved ones, inside of large groups of individuals that they do not know. Whether you are a husband/father that would like to have a course geared towards your family unit, or a wife/mother that would like to have a course geared towards your family unit, or any other possibly relationship or situation, this course was designed just for you. The value of having everyone that you care about on the exact same page, in regards to defensive handgun skill sets can not be understated. When everyone involves  knows the “how, where, when, and why” of solid defensive handgun skills, there is nowhere to go but onward and upward.

The “you do not know what you do not know” runs very deep inside of the gun community and it is best when all involved members of the couples, families, and teams know exactly what the other members know. Consistency, continuity, confidence, and competence work hand in hand.

If you already train and would like an opportunity to get the people who you care about the most, to train along with you, this is your chance. This course will be taught in a respectful, polite, and encouraging manner. There is nothing more important than having the ability to defend yourself and your loved ones and that fact will be kept as the main focus inside of this course offering.

Ammunition; 10 snap caps in the caliber you are carrying, 100 rounds of live ammunition, and as always, “bring more if you want to shoot more.”
