It’s very strange how something as simple as tossing a beanbag can totally fog your brain as to the task you need to perform. Integrating these thinking exercises was actually really hard, because we hadn’t done it much before, if at all. Then we moved to another stage where our first task was to activate a swinging target, run to a barrel, open a combination lock, then engage the swinger and other targets before the swinger stopped moving (60 seconds).
Again, very difficult, in fact, even though I knew about the lock and had watched two other people do it, I completely skipped the lock and engaged the targets. I was absolutely shocked and it shows that my mind game was not prepared. This is also very important when stage planning at a shooting competition. Your mental game needs to be just as good if not better than your actual shooting skill. Through these different drills, we started exercising some parts of our shooting skills that we hadn’t previously and really exposed some gaps in critical thinking under pressure.
The culmination of what we learned, we finally entered the arena, which is set up like a tactical training / room clearing facility with puzzles sprinkled in, targets hidden, corners, windows, targets for both pistol and rifle and on and on. This was also a ton of fun and a great learning experience.
I will say that as a consumer, I don’t love their members only scheme. I would love to be able to just walk in, pay a fee and leave. The staff however was great and we had an incredible time. This is great training and an excellent supplement but not a replacement for live fire training. Even though the airsoft guns are good and the slide cycles, they do not recoil like a live firearm. Our best guess was that you would want to live fire at least as much as you airsoft train. Certain skills can be learned with airsoft and perfected with live fire. It’s not a replacement, but it is a damn good supplement and I wish there was one near me.
