    Question Training for Shooters with Mobility Limits

    Has anyone heard of a shooting institute like Front Site and Gunsite, etc.. that have special classes for people with mobility limits? I've looked all over the internet and I've seen a lot of defensive shooting classes for people that are physically fit but none that give people with limited mobility ideas and tactics on how to survive a gun fight. I have limited mobility, and right now I'm making up my own techniques and tactics that I'm not sure are good or bad. Any Ideas would be helpful.

    You might check with Gabe Saurez. In a recent news letter from him he talked about a couple of people that went through his training that had special needs. Don't know for sure what accomodations he maight have but it woulld not hurt to check.

  4. I would contact all of the schools, as I believe any of them would be happy to arrange a program that would work for you.

    Please keep us informed of your results.

    I have seen people with mobility limits several times attending Front Sight courses. They seemed to have a great experience and the staff took the time to adapt the techniques to their situation. I'm sure the other firearms schools would do the same. Give some of them a call or shoot 'em an email.

    Thanks for the info. I guess the thing I was worried about was being charged extra simply because of my disability and the extra time they would have to spend with me then with the other students in the class.

    Well, Ruger Lady, whatever you decide to go with, let us know how it ends up going and what all the course entails. Good luck!

    Ruger Lady,

    My wife and I took the 4-day defensive handgun course at Front Sight last April. Both of us are in our latter 50's and I am confronted with disabilites, both walking and in my right arm. There was no pressure on us. We were told when we felt we needed to take a break and just watch for awhile that it was fine with them. It was 4 LONG days and we wore out before a lot of the younger people. I saw a few people wearing leg braces and using canes besides myself, but I didn't see any wheelchairs. It was excellant training.

    Good luck in your search.

    Training for Shooters with Mobility Limits

    One armed with no legs (Use prostetic legs for transfer) can't walk or stand. Use electric chair for mobility.

    I attended 4 day class at Front Sight, I was concerned too when I called thet said they would take my abilities w disabilities and make me better. Huge under statement. I am no novice shooter but I learned so much. They took my tecneques with theirs and mine greatly improved. The staff were absoultly great and professional,
    no pressure and Safety first. Lectures were great also.

    HIGHLY RECOMENDED

    Good for you! I get about halfway upset when people let physical challenges get in the way of something they really want to do. Did you train with an auto or a revolver? My wife trained with a G26. I was afraid that she wouldn't have the strengh to do the malfunction drills, but they helped her develop the knack. They are absolutely great down there.

    Wow this is a good thread. I too have walking/mobility issues. I've taken tactical courses, which usually requires me working 10 times harder to keep up with the mini boot camp atmosphere. Many times I am also forced to make up on the fly my own methods to subsitute for methods that aint workin. Front Sight sounds like a winner, I need to use my cert sometime and get over there. Nice thread!!!!
