BluCore has some great classes coming up this week!


Armed Defense Against Carjacking – September 30 (Monday), 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Our vehicles are part of our everyday lives. Whether we realize it or not, we can become easily vulnerable in and around our vehicles to those wishing to do us harm.  During this class, students will practice (using AirSoft guns and proper safety equipment) identifying and engaging threats while around and inside a vehicle.  This class is valuable to anyone carrying a concealed handgun outside the home.  It’s a great chance to practice making that ‘shoot-no shoot’ decision from difficult shooting positions such as the driver’s seat of a car!  Drills will include carjacking scenarios and getting assaulted while approaching/entering your vehicle.


Complimentary Family Firearms Safety – October 1 (Tuesday), 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Attention families!  If you’ve been looking for a responsible and safe way to expose the whole family (ages 7 and up) to safe and responsible gun ownership, this is it!  Our Complimentary Firearms Safety Class is about 60 minutes in length and taught the first Tuesday of each month. In this class, we will focus on “beginner firearms safety” from both the parent and child perspective. We also discuss safe handling and storage of firearms and ammunition in the home. As a responsible gun owner, it is your responsibility to safely keep and your firearms. It is also important for children to gain a “healthy respect” of firearms. This class is especially great for prospective and new firearms owners. Space is limited, make sure to sign up for each person attending.


Hunting Rifle Fundamentals – October 2 (Wednesday), 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
It’s hunting season! Many of us are looking forward to getting out our hunting rifles and making sure the rifles and ourselves are all ready to go and zeroed for our next fall hunt. Our Hunting Rifle Fundamentals class will teach students the weapons awareness, ready positions, shooting positions and fundamentals of shooting a hunting rifle. This class is at least three hours in length and includes both classroom and range time. In addition to learning or relearning the basic safety rules and safe rifle operation, students will get to practice a variety of shooting positions often used in hunting situations. We will also discuss the fundamentals and how they specifically apply to each position. These skills will be reinforced during our live fire drills on our indoor 100 yard rifle range. We are simply taking many of our military sniper skills and applying them in a hunting rifle scenario.


Low Light Pistol – October 3 (Thursday), 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
It’s a fact, most shootings happen in low or no-light settings! Have you ever tried shooting in the dark? Most people never get the chance to practice shooting their gun in the setting that is most likely during a shooting, a low-light setting.  The BluCore Low-Light Pistol class is a must for anyone who uses, or plans to use a pistol as a defensive weapon inside or outside the home. Even if you simply own a gun that sits in the closet for the dreadful ‘what-if home break-in’ scenario, this class is a must for you! During this class, our expert instructors will teach the pros and cons of hand-held and weapons-mounted lights, as well as the proper techniques for shooting with those lights. Then students will all get an opportunity to practice these techniques on the range in a live-fire environment.


NRA Basic Pistol Course – October 5 (Saturday), 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Are you looking for a course that you need in order to apply for your concealed handgun permit, or just looking for a basic introductory pistol course? The NRA Basic Pistol Course is a great course for you! This class teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning and operating a pistol safely. Students will learn how to handle and shoot both revolvers and semi-automatic pistols. Also covered is the NRA’s Rules for Safe Gun Handling, pistol parts and operation, ammunition & ammunition storage, the NRA Shooting Fundamentals, range rules, shooting positions as well as pistol cleaning & storage. Students will receive the NRA Guide to the Basics of Pistol Shooting handbook and an NRA Certificate upon successful course completion. This is an NRA curriculum, and is different from the BluCore Pistol I class. The NRA Basic Pistol Course is a great starter course to take before other classes BluCore has to offer.
