Tall Guns Real Streets Overview

Real Streets Overview

The Real Streets course is designed to develop the student’s decision and defensive skills in a near real life environment. This developmental program is taught three distinct courses.

Utilizing the advanced video and decision branching technology of the IES Training Simulator the student is presented with numerous real life scenarios and that can change each time encountered. Where decisions of "shoot" or "no shoot" are driven by:

  • situation environment
  • use of voice commands
  • threat level
  • proximity of others
  • and in some scenarios, active shooter response.

Using a process of immediate feedback the instructors will rerun the scenario and de-brief with the student:

  • on choices made or not
  • shot placement if appropriate
  • alternate response options
  • what went well and what did not
  • and a ”do over”!

The student will draw from various positions determined by the scenario. They may be sitting in an office, walking into a restaurant or walking in a parking garage to name few of the scenarios. Our scenarios offer real people with real responses not animated cartoon-like characters. The course consist of, but is not limited to the following:

  • Equipment overview
  • Review of justification of force aspects of Colorado law
  • Review of situational awareness guidelines for use of force
  • Practice with simulator of shot placement
  • Scenario overviews
  • Simulation exercises

At the end of each fo the courses the student will receive a certificate of completion.
