About the Event

To survive a vehicle ambush you must immediately change the dynamic by establishing dominance over the adversary.  Students will learn to use the handgun to counter “near ambushes” (distances under 25 meters).   VCAT 1 will cover the following topics:

  • Demonstration of cover/concealment options around vehicles
  • Counter-surveillance and pre-attack indicators
  • Strategies to overcome near ambushes
  • Live-fire shooting while seated in the vehicle
  • Exiting the vehicle under fire
  • Engaging targets while outside of the vehicle
  • Force-on-force scenarios to validate training

Prerequisites: Students must be U.S. citizens and legally allowed to possess a firearm.  

Students must have completed Paladin Tactical's Basic Pistol Course
