Default OC Chapter Special Event @ Artemis Defense Institute on 3/22/2013!

CALGUNS EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW EVENT

So, you think you can shoot?

Are you the terror of the paper targets?

Are you ready for interactive combat?

Join us from 6:30PM to 9:00PM on 3/22/2013 at the Artemis Defense Institute in Lake Forest for our exclusive access to the newest indoor police shooting simulator currently used by the OCSD, and the only such simulator open to the public on the West Coast.

What is it?
The Artemis experience is a series of highly realistic interactive shooting simulators ranging from a 10'x15' flat screen simulator to a 360 degree surround simulator. Real weapons using laser light and simulated recoil are used and computers track your every shot.

What is different about this?
With over 145 different scenarios ranging from hostage rescue to battlefield combat, Artemis puts YOU in the action. Using both pistols and rifles. The Artemis system can simulate virtually any real-world scenario and hone your skills involving when to shoot, when not to shoot, and how to survive a gunfight.

Not real enough?
At Artemis, the targets CAN shoot back if you’re up to it. Using the interactive operation, and a shock stun belt, you can feel the pressure of impending pain if you don’t put your targets down! Get them BEFORE they get YOU!

What will we be doing?
We are invited to experience a series of training scenarios on each of the three simulators using both pistol and long gun. (AR-15’s)

What is the cost?
$40.00 per shooter for a total of 30 minutes on the simulators.

How will it work?
Slots will be filled first-post-first-come. Five alternates can be wait listed. NO cancellations will be accepted after 3/20/13. Anyone still on the list after that date will be expected to pay for their slot whether they use it or not. You will be grouped and given a start time for your group to begin on the simulators. Arrive NO LATER than 6:20PM.

What should I bring?
$40.00 cash or credit card for your range time. A holster for any model Glock is helpful, but not necessary. DO NOT BRING FIREARMS. Artemis will provide all the hardware you need.

Their FAQ can be found here: http://www.artemisdefenseinstitute.com/Artemis/FAQ.html

See you all on the battlefield!

Due to the size of the facility we will have to limit the number of attendees as per the owner's guidelines. NO cancellations will be accepted after 3/20/13. Anyone still on the list after that date will be expected to pay for their slot whether they use it or not.

How many "labs" do they have? Will we use the 1, 3, or 5 screen set-up?

3, and each shooter will rotate through all 3 of them.

No problem, we'd love to see you guys. Thanks on the advance payment. We just don't want a 30% no show rate like we normally get for the regular shoots each month.

Nope - just bring CC or cash that day, but keep in mind that we promised Artemis a certain number of shooters, so, we discourage cancellations.

Bring your ID, form of payment, and maybe a jacket if you are concerned about too much AC. That's pretty much it. Check their FAQ for further info: http://www.artemisdefenseinstitute.com/Artemis/FAQ.html

I think it'd be easier if you just called the facilities and asked them yourself.

Had a blast last night trying out ADI's facility. Definitely adds value if you are looking for real world training dealing with real world self defense scenarios.

Kudos goes to djandj for making this happen, and we will be talking with the ADI staff to see about making this a regular event.

And now, without further ado. . . pics!

Thank you so much to ADI and the OC folks for setting this up!

A long drive from the Valley, but worth it. Very valuable I would imagine when coupled with the video review of your own session and debrief.

Grabbed some of the still pics and the remainder of the video and put together a longer video...

Wish I would have gotten more of everyone but got some good highlights.
