Lakeview will be chilly in 6 - 8 weeks, make sure you bring rain gear and maybe some snivel gear that is tuned to you - hand warmers / thermos of hot soup or coffee for the in-betweens / etc.

FWIW - he's big on the basics and part of that thinking is 'if you don't normally'...... learning how to do in street clothes has some real world advantages (like reminding you that pocket lint can really cause quite failure in the dark - so if you're using your pocket as a mag pouch, clean the lint out first). If you're not currently committed to a set up you might consider attending, watching what others are using and talk to them about their set up and why they have it, what he discusses; and then make a more informed decision based on what you think you need. Like a lot of things - it depends.

I used this one for that exact class, worked well. 3 mags were plenty between revolutions. Great facility, Clint is “an acquired taste”, lol. Rest of staff are great. You’ll be out there rain or shine so dress and prepare accordingly. A lot of this course is shoot and move, probably only 25% is prone, which is good. Fighting usually doesn’t involve just laying in one spot.

UPR is fusion of Urban Rifle and Precision Rifle while keeping the rifle platform of Urban Rifle it holds to a higher standard and responsibility of impacts. It takes the shooter from applying marksmanship from pristine range positions to field expedient and practical applications through realistic building facades and cover on the move. All shooting is precision shooting, but sometimes that shooting needs to be surgical. This course covers that. Low powered scopes or dot optics with magnifiers are acceptable. Bolt guns are also welcome. Drills will include safety, movement, cover, moving targets, hostage type targets, firing from elevated platforms and reactive targets.
