Here is a fun way to learn the fundamentals of shooting for a novice or reinforce your skills as an advanced shooter. Come train with us as we put a new spin to the basics with Zombie 101.

  • GET WISE BEFORE THEY RISE!; Situational Awareness, Color Codes of Awareness, Prepared not Paranoid. The best fight you can win is the one you saw coming and were able to avoid
  • THE MENU. Knowing Them All Makes Zombies Fall; It’s not a 7 course meal, its the 7 fundamentals of shooting. Grip, Stance, Sight Alignment, Sight Picture, Trigger Control, Breathing, and Follow Through
  • GET OFF THE DINNER PLATE; Lateral movement on the Draw Stroke, as Action beats Reaction
  • FEED THE GUN NOT A ZOMBIE; Emergency Slide Lock or Empty Cylinder Reloads, Tactical Reloads, Administrative Loading and Unloading
  • DISTANCE VS DIGESTION; Oblique, Rearward, and Lateral Movement in a Gunfight
  • FAST MOVEMENT VS FAST FOOD: Forward Movement to Aggress the Threat
  • ZOMBIE BLT; Breathe, Listen, Think. Challenge Commands. (To insure they’re not a Zombie)
  • MAKE THEM MOAN, SHOOT THEM IN THE ZONE; Target Offered, Target Selected. Center Mass Hits
  • USE YOUR HEAD, SHOOT THEIRS; Making a Precision Head Shot
  • SIDE OF ZOMBIES PLEASE; Turns to the Right Side, Turns to the Left Side, Zombie at Your Backside
  • CLEAR THE JAM TO MAKE ZOMBIE JELLY; Clearing Jams and Malfunctions to Stay in the Fight
  • LEFTOVERS; Combat Follow-through. Making Sure the Fight is Over!
  • So Come on Out and Make Sure Your Ready for the Coming Zombie Invasion

Remember…If You Look Like Food, You Will Be Eaten!
