Some info re prepping for your first session.

Even though you may be a skilled shooter, we will be doing a benchmark session on day 1 – this is so that we can have a benchmark to take forward as we progress, but also to ensure the instructors see how everyone is handling their firearms. We need to ensure safety at all times, therefore a session like this is of paramount importance.

You will also do a fitness benchmark on day 1. Same as above, the idea behind the course is to ensure your growth in the next 12 months.

Therefore, we use these benchmarks to ensure we progress with each individual. The aim of the course is to grow the individual, to enable them to be prepared to defend themselves and their loved ones, so growth is our key focus. In all areas.

For day 1 you will need

  • own licensed handgun plus 1 mag
  • 75 rounds
  • holster
  • hat, sunscreen, closed shoes, range clothes
  • eyes and ears (we do supply these if you don’t have them)
  • enough water/fluids – the days are full and long on Lone Operator and you get tired. The day starts at 7h30 and ends at around 17h00.
  • food/snacks to keep going – take note – we don’t do formal lunch breaks, so if you do get an opportunity, throw some scoff down your neck and take water throughout to stay fed and hydrated throughout. Something like nuts and biltong works a charm.

We will also do a fitness benchmark – why? As you go through this course you will understand why we focus on fitness – keep in mind this course is aimed at defending yourself, it is not a fun shooting event. So the whole focus is driven to that.

The fitness benchmark is NOT to disqualify you, but once again a benchmark to be used in evaluations.

So you can show up in PT clothing and dress into range clothing afterwards.

You will be doing

  • a 2,4km run
  • 2 minutes of situps – to exhaustion
  • 1 minute of push-ups – to exhaustion (iow your own max)
  • pull-ups – to exhaustion
  • 10 x 25m shuttle runs
