Vehicle Close Quarter Combat (VCQB™) is an accelerated shooting class focused on positional shooting and takes a critical look at how we have historically fought in and around vehicles. Students will push the boundaries of traditional concepts of cover utilizing vehicles in a true 3D training environment.

Drills will incorporate critical handgun employment while engaging threats in, around, from, over and under vehicles with an extreme emphasis on problem solving.
