I’ve been putting together our training schedule for next year, and should be posting it in the next couple days. Right now, we’re looking at doing six CCW classes, one each in the months of April-June and Sept.-Nov. We will also be doing one other class in the months listed above, varying between Personal Protection Inside the Home, Outside the Home and RNA Basic Rifle. We have a couple range days thrown in, as well, with the big one being Sept. 24. That will be a Range Day/2nd Annual Boondock Tactical Wiener Roast. Last year’s was a blast!
Our fees are staying where they have been since we started….8 Hr. CCW $75, 16 Hr. CCW $150, PPITH $75, PPOTH $100, NRA Basic Rifle $75, and our Range Day fee is $20. The Couples Discount for CCW will still be in place, as well.
It does not look like we will be using the NRA Basic Pistol course as part of our CCW class this year. The NRA has decided to make the Basic Pistol class a “blended learning” course, where part of the class is done online, and then the student would have to find an NRA certified instructor to complete the live fire portion of the class. The Illinois State Police will not accept training in which any portion of the class is done online. All CCW training must be conducted live by certified instructors. So, we are putting together our own Basic Pistol course which we think will be a better fit for those who wish to get their concealed carry permit.
To see the schedule, keep an eye on this page, as well as our website, www.boondocktactical.com.
Stay safe, my friends!!
I’m sure by now most of you have heard about the murder of two TV reporters in Virginia. We send our prayers to the families of the victims.
Against my better judgement I watched the video. Without going into graphic details, the gunman walked up to within a couple feet of his victims and raised his gun. It appeared the victims had no idea he was there. He lowered his gun, then raised it again and began firing. Nobody even looked his way until the first shot was fired. The victims were completely oblivious to his presence, and it appeared on the video that there was nobody else close by at the time.
Sadly, two more innocent lives have been destroyed by an evil man. I don’t care about motive. I am not concerned in the least as to why he did what he did. It’s just not relevant. What I am concerned with is that there are still people who live in the same world as you and I that still believe evil does not exist. It’s real, and it does not discriminate.
Maintaining your situational awareness at condition yellow is a must at all times. We talk about it in class, and we will be talking about it even more. Be aware of your surroundings and who you share them with. Don’t allow yourself to be surprised by anyone. It can’t be stressed enough, as again we have seen another example of the fact that we alone are responsible for our own safety and security.
I would love to see a time when we won’t be hearing about stories such as this one, but until that day comes we must be ready and aware. Always be prepared. Always stay vigilant. Always keep your family and yourself safe. Nobody else will do it for you.
Come see us at the Spring Home & Outdoor Expo at Big Rack’s Steakhouse in Canton on April 19 from 11am until 3pm. We will have a booth set up to help with the fundraiser for the Spoon River Pregnancy Resource Center also located in Canton. We will be donating class coupons to be auctioned, and we might have a special or two for those who stop by. Hope to see you then!
Our next 16 hour IL CCW class is scheduled for April 11-12, 2015. If you’re interested, give us a call or send an E-mail to email@example.com.
Boondock Tactical is donating a 16 hour CCW class, to be auctioned off at the benefit for Ray Shannon, Saturday, Dec. 13 at the Cuba American Legion. Ray is in need of a liver transplant. So, come on out to the Legion on Dec. 13, support a worthy cause, and maybe you’ll be the winning bidder!
Wishing you the best, Ray Shannon and family. Our prayers are with you and we’re honored to be a part of this.
