I'm not able to go but here are the details.

-----------------------------------------------
There’s a Utah Polite Society event scheduled for Saturday, December 1 at Hendricksen Range.

This Saturday’s event is focused on winning the harts and minds of your adversary by placing your shots accordingly.

We have two exercises planned for Saturday, and have two additional exercises we will run, if time permits.

Exercise one is a tactical test focused on neutralizing threats using both center-of-mass (COM) shots and head shots.

Exercise two is a simulated defensive encounter using reactive targets
with balloons located in the COM, and head vital zones that drop an indicator when hit. Some will be configured to neutralize when hit COM and some will be configured to neutralize when hit in the head. These configurations will be random and changed for each participant.

If time permits, we will run exercises three and four.

Exercise three is a tactical test that exercises making both body and head shots while moving laterally to a pair of threats.

Exercise four is a simulated encounter that takes place in a parking garage and simulates having to respond to an attack where you are struck from behind and knocked to your hands and knees.

Please bring your handgun, a strong-side holster, a magazine pouch, extra magazine(s), and at least 75 rounds of ammo (bring extra, if you would like to shoot additional exercises or shoot steel after the scheduled exercises).

Set up starts at 8:00 a.m.

New shooter orientation starts at 8:30 a.m.

Registration starts at 8:45 a.m.

Shooting exercises start at 9:00 a.m.

Event fee is $12.00 (this includes both the event and, optionally, the class).

For additional information, contact Neil Hood.

Although I am quite familiar with range and "plunking" shooting opportunities, I have not yet attended self-defense shooting exercise.

Are these events open to relative newbies to this experience?

yes they are, but they do require that you attend a new shooter orientaion that is usually held right before the match. B

This Saturday’s event is focused on operating your sidearm with only your support hand (left hand if you are right handed).

Exercise three is a simulated defensive encounter requiring you to address an encounter at an ATM using only your support hand.

Exercise four is a simulated defensive encounter requiring you to address a home invasion using only your support hand.

Please bring your handgun, a strong-side holster, a magazine pouch, extra
magazine(s), and at least 100 rounds of ammo (bring extra, if you would
