Urban Rifle 2 with Vehicle Defense addresses where we spend a portion of our day; in and around our vehicles. This course is offered ONLY to Thunder Ranch students that have completed Urban Rifle in good to excellent standing and have used their time since to actually practice. Documentation needed. This is not a basic rifle operation course. We will confirm your zero on day one and move forward with other material. If you do not have a zero on your rifle or know what a zero is then the answer is NO. If you have not touched your rifle since you left Thunder Ranch three years ago, then the answer is NO. If you have taken a rifle course somewhere else and want to slide in here when you have not taken Urban Rifle, then the answer is NO. If you do not have an ink signed Thunder Ranch Inc. certificate from Urban Rifle Course, then the answer is NO. If you think no one will notice or confirm your application, then the answer is NO. Read the fine print here: URBAN RIFLE (Texas or Oregon) is A REQUIREMENT, PREREQUISITE, PRECONDITION, CONDITION, CRITERION, MUST, NECESSITY, QUIALIFICATION. UR2VD is a new course with new material, it is not a venue for practicing what you did in Urban Rifle. It will include a REVIEW of material, such as safety, loads, malfunctions, movement, cover, communication, methods of carry and deployment and move forward with new material. It builds on top of the established Urban Rifle Principle and Doctrine. It adds manipulation, deployment, shooting, and movement in, around, and from vehicles. Students must be in good physical shape and be able to sprint 50 yards at high altitude.

Nominal 1000 rounds of ammunition. $980

    I just got home a couple of hours ago from this class –my twelfth at Thunder Ranch, Oregon (grin). This is a true advanced class.

    Another student commented (and I agree) that the most important part of this class is the course description. This is not a “remedial Urban Rifle” course. If you need a review of Urban Rifle, take Urban Rifle again (better yet, take Urban Precision Rifle). Those classes cover the basics of rifle handling, loading, malfunctions, etc., very well.

    In UR2, the student has to be able to move, communicate, and shoot. You will be working with a partner with a lot of movement–moving in and out of vehicles, covering each other, bounding and related drills. If your fundamentals are not sound, this class is not for you.

    I took Urban Rifle and Urban Precision Rifle before this class, and I was pushed hard this week. I usually finish the day tired. I finished very tired this time. I was in bed early, no hanging out jawing and talking over a few beers — as were most of us. I also got “killed” a few times–I did not identify the threat in a timely fashion. It was just a steel plate, but humbling none the less. More humbling when it happened again.

    The instructors were excellent, focusing on the immediate safety of the students (finger straight, muzzle pointed downrange, etc,) and the safety of your partner in a fight (if you are covering your partner get your muzzle on the threat and your finger on the trigger).

    The last time I have enjoyed being this tired was when I was playing football in college.

    Thanks Clint and Heidi

    God Bless

    When Clint Smith started the class with his lecture expressing his displeasure of students who come to his classes without practicing in between, my heart sank as I knew I was one of those. Living in the city and working full-time as a physician leaves little place or time to practice rifle shooting, but his point was well taken as I made mistakes during the class that I shouldn’t have had I practiced manipulating the rifle even at home dry firing. This class will challenge your physical and mental endurance, but you will reap what you sow. It would behoove you to get in shape as three days of this will cause you pain somewhere on the body. The instructors, as always, are knowledgeable and helpful. As with all classes, come prepared but keep it simple. This is not a military training school. Keep your equipment as uncomplicated as possible and make sure they are in working order. Always bring more ammunition than the nominal amount advertised. Elbow and knee pads will be your friends. Come with anticipation, learn by participation, leave with fortification. And practice in-between.

    This was a very solid class. Instructors were top notch as usual. The class starts out on the flat range and then progresses to shooting from and around your own vehicle. You then move out to the road and drive towards the brown range. You will engage targets off the road hidden in the tree lines. This was a very nice touch as most classes don’t get off the flat range. As someone who spends most their day in a car this class was very beneficial. I would recommend this class for anyone in LE/MIL.

    On a separate note, like the other reviews say. Show up to the class with knowledge on what your doing. If you are a person who is new to training and shooting take the UR1 class first. Your only as good as your weakest person. Don’t show up and hold the class back.
