EDC Performance Expo – April 27 2024

April 27 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

The EDC Performance Expo is an event for the concealed carrier. This event will cover many topics but all apply to the conceal carrier. Course blocks will be taught by Advent Training, Odyssey Training And Consulting as well as Dragon Defense. Students will train with each of these instructors to get a holistic approach to conceal carrying. Training blocks will be 3 hours each.

 

This is not a beginner event. You’ll need to have a firm understanding of your firearm, the fundamentals and safety beforehand. Students will be asked to leave if they do not meet these requirements and a refund will not be issued.

Length: 10 hours

Start Time: 8:00 AM

Location: Farm Training Center; Fairfield, Utah. Roughly one to two weeks before the class date an email will be sent to notify which bay and where to park.

 

Students will need all of the following for the entire day’s event.

  • Notepad and pen (Take Notes!)
  • Sharpie or Marker
  • Eye and Ear Protection (electronic ear protection is preferred)
  • Shoes or boots, no open toe or sandals
  • Seasonal weather gear (i.e. rain, cold). We shoot rain or shine.
  • Range appropriate attire. No low cut shirts. Hot brass burns.

  • Snacks, and/or a lunch. We will have a 30 minute lunch break and there is no time to drive to get food.
  • Brimmed Hat
  • Sunblock
  • Gun Cleaning Kit and Lubrication for Handgun and Rifle

Courses:

DEFENSE OF A 3RD PARTY

This course is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively respond to situations where the defense of others is required. This dynamic three-hour block of instruction combines insights into verbal commands, situational awareness training, and physical readiness exercises. Participants will delve into analytical considerations surrounding third-party defense, enhance their situational awareness, and develop physical capabilities to create a safe and effective response.

Prerequisites: The shooting focus is one handed and it is recommended to be familiar with this skill (both support and strong hand) to control the recoil with one hand. We will be using kettlebells so it is slightly physical. Students should be able to safely and effectively hold a 10lbs kettlebell parallel to the ground while shooting with the opposite hand. While holding the kettlebell they should be able to hit a B8 repair center from 10 yards 10 times without a time limit.

 

Required Equipment:

  • Handgun
  • 200 rounds of reliable ammunition
  • Handgun Holster (Leather, shoulder, cross-draw or SERPA holsters are PROHIBITED)
  • Magazine Holster.
  • At least 2 magazines (Bring more if you have them). At least 5 magazines if single stack.
  • Sturdy belt for holster.


Be sure to bring your Concealed Carry setup for this block of instruction. We recommend you use your EDC handgun, holster and concealment location to get solid instruction for your individual situation. If you are security or law enforcement bring your work setup.

PRECISION MARKSMANSHIP UNDER STRESS


This class focuses on the true defense use of a firearm. Knowing how to operate a gun under stress to make tough hits is completely different than just shooting. Precision marksmanship under stress will cover topics including an in-depth look into the fundamentals, techniques, OODA loop, Hick’s Law and weapon manipulations.

Gear list:

  • Quality Handgun
  • 150 rounds of training ammo
  • 3 Magazines (Minimum)
  • Strongside Belt Holster (Appendix works too)
  • Sturdy Gun Belt
  • Eye Protection
  • Ear Protection
  • Spare Magazine Pouch

Instructor:

Dragon Defense continues to grow to train responsibly armed individuals to protect what they love most.


 

VEHICLE DYNAMICS

 

Vehicle Dynamics explores the unique aspects of self-defense around vehicles. As we have a high likelihood of being assaulted near vehicles, we will explore best practices to maximize our protection and enable ourselves to win. We will cover common vehicle myths, and students will be equipped with a gameplan to offer the highest chance of success in a vehicle gunfight.

 

Gear List:

  • Handgun
  • 200 rounds of training ammo
  • 10 rounds of your preferred duty/self-defense ammo
  • Holster (ideally a Kydex concealment holster or duty holster)
  • eye/ear protection (there is increased risk of glass/metal frag, so good eye pro is a must!)
  • mag pouches
  • an open mind

 

Instructor:

Chris Cook of Odyssey Training and Consulting has been a serious student of self-defense and shooting performance for over 10 years. He has over 700 hours of professional training from schools such as Centrifuge Training, Haley Strategic Partners, Shivworks and many more. The purpose of Odyssey Training and Consulting is to provide well-researched, high percentile solutions to the problem of civilian self defense.
