Range Incident Response Course (2-Part Course) – April 2, 2022 at the Best Defense Armory & Range

The Shooting Sports is challenging and exciting. It is why we enjoy it. Most of us take great pride in our shooting abilities and how safe we are with firearms. But let’s face it, our sport can be inherently dangerous, especially if there is a mishap or accident that causes someone to get wounded. We’ve all heard about it happening. Some of us have had the misfortune of being around one that has happened. Are you ready to handle it if it happens around you, or even yourself? Do you have an emergency plan in place? Do you have the gear or knowledge to keep someone or yourself alive until medical help can arrive? These courses we’re offering can help you prepare to respond for such emergency.

The MN 3Gun Group is proud to put on a 2-part Range Incident Response Course. The medical training will be instructed by Sentinel Tactical Emergency Medicine and Paramedic Ryan Kelly. Ryan is a Combat Medic and Instructor with the MN National Guard and a Police Officer and Medical Support Instructor with the Minneapolis Police Department. His certifications include AHA CPR Instructor, Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3), and Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS).
