Default Threat Scenarios Force-On-Force Training Now Live! [SF Bay Area] **NEW**

Hello Calguns Members,

We are excited to announce Threat Scenarios is now live! Check us out:

Who are we and what do we do?
Threat Scenarios is the newest training opportunity in the Bay Area, providing an array of training from live-fire coaching to advanced force-on-force training using UTM man-marker training munitions for both the concerned citizen and law enforcement alike.

Where are you located?
Threat Scenarios conducts classes in a couple locations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Our primary live-fire range is the action shooting bays at Richmond Rod and Gun Club. Our shoothouse is located in Novato, CA, just by the SR-37 and US-101 intersection. We occasionally offer off-site classes on an as-needed basis.
We do not disclose the exact location of our shoothouse to non-clients for security reasons. If you sign up for a class which involves the shoothouse, we will provide the exact address in a welcome email.

What kind of classes do you offer?
We have 3 categories: (1)Technical, (2)Practical, and (3)Law Enforcement--
(1) Technical
Learn a program concentrating on the kinetics of shooting: body positioning, leverage, ergonomics, and focus, which will take your speed and accuracy to the next level. We teach a system of mechanics designed to minimize any unnecessary influence that a shooter may impart on the firearm, while allowing him or her to maintain a solid platform to deliver rounds on target. Itís simple, repeatable, and proven in competition and defensive encounters.

Our classes range from basic firearms instruction for beginners, through advanced techniques such as shooting while moving to position. We also offer courses tailored to USPSA / IPSC competitors.

(2) Practical
Problem-solve and fight in realistic force on force engagements either as an individual or member of a team, and practice advanced gun-handling under stress. Threat Scenarios Practical classes are designed to evaluate your ability to perform when the targets could be shooting back. We combine outdoor live fire stages along with intricately designed simulated munition (UTM) courses of fire in our custom built shoothouse.

With flexible instruction methods and multiple types of classes offered, thereís something for students of all skill levels. For more information on each class type, check out

3) Law Enforcement
We offer departments a range of turnkey solutions (open only to sworn LEO personnel) ranging from patrol to SWAT encounters. Our team can fill any agency need, whether itís designing an entire full-stack package for Active Threat Response training, or simply providing experienced role players, gear, or pyrotechnics for an exercise. We are meticulous about authenticity, and will work closely with our clients to achieve their objectives.

For confidentiality reasons, we do not currently publish our Law Enforcement agency calendar. Please use our Contact form to schedule a booking or ask for more details.

What's the difference between "Technical" and "Practical"?
Generally speaking, Technical classes focus on marksmanship with live ammunition, while Practical classes focus on tactics and mindset with UTM rounds against an opposing force. Some classes contain both; for example, a day of live-fire at the range followed by another indoors at the shoothouse.

When are classes and how much do classes cost?
That really depends on the type of class. To see our calendar of upcoming classes, please visit: . Here's a few of the upcoming classes and dates:
March 10th: USPSA Competition Diagnostics
March 11th: Intro to Defensive Tactics
March 25-26: Skills and Scenarios (2-Day)
April 8th: Intro to Defensive Tactics
April 22-23: Skills and Scenarios (2-Day)
May 13: Intro to Defensive Tactics
May 27-28: Skills and Scenarios (2-Day)
June 10-11: LEO Firearms and Tactics (2-day)
June 24-25: Skills and Scenarios (2-Day)

What are UTMs and what do you wear?
UTMs are non-lethal marking projectiles which travel at speeds between 335fps (pistol) and 375fps (rifle). To ensure the safety of our clients, we provide everyone with full UTM certified face, neck, and groin protection, along with gloves and a helmet.

We believe that when you are participating in defensive training, there should be a pain penalty for getting shot. Additionally, we donít want to send anyone home for forgetting to bring the right clothing. As such, we provide all students with full body jumpsuits and a complimentary T-Shirt so that the level of protection is standardized. All you have to bring is closed toe shoes and socks.

So does it hurt? Well yeah, but itís not that bad. It hits like a paintball (some say a little better, some say a little worse) and will leave a welt or a mark for a couple days. All of our instructors have been shot hundreds of times (mostly by students in crossfire). And honestly, if youíre afraid of getting hit, then donít get hit!

The above hopefully covers the majority of questions you may have about us, but if it doesn't, feel free to browse our full FAQ list here:

If you still have questions about us, feel free to email josh (at), PM us on CG, or fill out a contact form on our site here:

Stay safe and train hard,
Threat Scenarios
