    Cecil Burch Immediate Action Combatives Close Contact Handgun Oct 4/5, 2019 Phoenix

    On October 4th - 5th, I will be presenting the live fire coursework that I and my co-instructor Glen Stilson from Independence Training call Close Contact Handgun in Phoenix, AZ. This is the fundamental base where we try to ensure that we don't end up in an entanglement, and we can use our handgun to maximum effect. There is some very minor physical contact in the class, but it is extremely limited, making the course suitable for anyone who is looking to get their feet wet in the close range self-defense envelope. This is a great introduction to the 0-5 yds gunfighting envelope for those who have been hesitant to do so from lack of physical conditioning or little experience in H2H fighting. , and has the thumbs up for Craig Douglas of Shivworks (since we shamelessly are teaching a great deal of his material in the course). We have had some great feedback results when we taught this course before, including people who have taken ECQC. We are looking forward to doing it again.

    Close Contact Handgun


    We cant always use our defensive pistols in the optimum way we would like. Sometimes, we are able to shoot at extended range, but too often we need to shoot at closer distances. Sometimes, even when in actual physical contact with an assailant. Most people do not realize how easy it is for a bad guy to get too close to you, and how easy it is for him to interfere with your use of a firearm. This critical skill set requires specific training to optimize our chance of success and survival, and this course helps to accomplish that.

    In this class we will look at ways to maintain distance, using verbalization, footwork, positioning, and awareness to keep distance from an aggressive criminal, and to utilize the pistol in a manner in which we can prevent him from stopping us. The focus is on NOT getting entangled and having to get into a physical fight, but rather to use the pistol the way it is intended to be used at a distance.

    We will cover:

    Maintaining Spatial Relationship
    Functional Footwork
    Proper Verbalization
    Presenting the pistol through an appropriate line of extension and compression
    Live fire through extension and compression
    Retention Shooting (both from the thumb-pectoral and the compressed high ready)
    Live fire retention shooting
    Integrating Verbals with everything else
    Recognizing when it is appropriate to go to the gun and when not to

    We will be working live fire on the range, as well as drilling concepts with blue guns. At the end we will pressure test our new skills in Force-on-force scenarios against resisting opponents with opposing will and freedom of action using UTM marking cartridges. We will be working in open space, in and around vehicles, and inside structures.

    Students will need a suitable carry pistol, at least three spare magazines, a quality holster, and 350 rounds of ammo. If you have training guns and training knives, please feel free to bring them.

    Cost: $320

    To clarify, I was incorrect in the above statement. Cecil clarifies in an IM that the Feb OKC class is not the same class.

    Jackdog, what are the chances of filling full Close Contact Handgun next fall.

    I can think of at least two people who would be in it, based on a dinner conversation.

    I have to check with Cecil but I believe he only teaches Close Contact Handgun with Glen of Independence Training. But if Cecil is willing to teach it in DFW Id host it in a heartbeat.

    Agreed! I'll gladly offer up a bag of revolvers and three PX4's as loaner guns.

    Sure, we can take it on the road. It is not difficult. Since it is a Friday night/Saturday all day course, we could even do another course on something else on Sunday.

    That would be very cool! And it would be fun to do some brainstorming about possibilities for Sunday.
