To: Whom it may concern Date:11/16/17
From: Paula Curtin

I was a bit intimidated about learning to shoot but after talking with Hank, I knew that one on one instruction was what I needed to make me feel comfortable with the responsibility of owning a gun.

I had taken a local girls only class which was a good baby step but I still felt like I was not ready to just go out and purchase a gun and the responsibility of it really shook me. I knew that this was a big decision and that I needed to be 100% confident in my ability to shoot and handle a gun.

The personal instruction with Hank not only educated me about safety and gun handling but also made me more confident about my decision. I learned the proper safety and handling first and then spent hours actually shooting the gun under his direction.

The time shooting a gun with his guidance and encouragement made me sure I wanted to own one. I know with more practice and more guidance from Hank that I will be a responsible and accurate shooter.

If you are considering instruction, talk to Hank and you will learn that he is passionate about his teaching and that his education and background are impressive!

Carbine Stance and Ready Up drill by NLB Tactical and Hank Hayes

The Carbine stance debate and the ready up drills.

The powerful fighting weapon the carbine has many uses, however I think there’s one thing we can all pretty much agree on when it comes to protection in close, we must be to able get shots on target as fast as possible. This video covers basic 3 elements.

1. The Carbine shooting stance.
2. Static single shot ready up drill
3. Dynamic single shot ready up moving drill.

Do you own a handgun or rifle and only shoot standing still at the firing line at the range?

Are you drawing from the holster using reload, malfunction and multi position shooting stress drills?

Are you rapidly moving to cover while laying cover fire and shooting from behind barricades moving from position to position?

Are you training vehicle ambush and varied shooting situation stress drills?

If not, THIS MUST CHANGE! You are not truly prepared for a gun fight. GET TRAINING NOW!!!

NLB tactical provides a catalog of courses and has 365/24/7 access to a tactical range in the Virginia Beach, Va area. Whether it’s for your command or personal 1 on 1 needs, contact us for half day, full day or multi -day training packages at our range in Virginia Beach.

Many make it a mini vacation, shoot, eat, swim!!!
