At DARC, our world class facilities, lead-by example staff, philosophy of training, and commitment to our clients add up to the best tactical training in the world! No other place on Earth has this unbelievable combination of recources and talent at such an accessible location. DARC's premier facilities allow for live-fire, force-on-force training as well as diverse areas of skill refinement.
1000 YARD RANGE
Has reactive steel and paper targets that can be "hidden," making the
participant actively search for his target. A covered, two story shooting
platform allows the user to fire at ground level, 8 feet above ground, or
from staircases at known and unknown distances. On the top level, we have newly added garage door openings facing the shoot-house and the 1000 meter range. In addition to the top-floor garage door openings, the three-room
ground level has numerous windows and either may be used to conduct
sniper-initiated assaults into the 6100 square foot shoot house.
600 YARD RANGE
Has reactive steel and paper targets. Every 100 meters there is a tower to climb and shoot from. At the 600 meters line there is a two-story house for use as an urban hide. One can shoot from a room, across a hallway, through another room, out of a window at a reactive target.
6100 SQUARE FOOT LIVE FIRE SHOOT-HOUSE
Rifle grade structure with safety catwalks and an elevated roof for
environmental and opsec protection. This building can be sub-divided into
four separate live fire training areas for simultaneous use. Designed for
explosive, mechanical and ballistic breaching, this house also has the
unique feature of interior wall breaches. Any medium can be installed within
the wall breaching panels: dry wall, cinder block, brick, etc. This feature
allows an organization to conduct technical surveillance with live fire and
wall breaches for in-extremis operations.
3600 SQUARE FOOT LIVE FIRE SHOOT-HOUSE
We have just added another live fire shoot-house that covers the northeast quadrant of the urban assault course. Like the other shoot-house, it has rifle grade structure with saftey catwalks and an elevated roof. It is designed for explosive, mechanical and ballistic breaching as well, and it is set up with interior wall breaching panels.
URBAN ASSAULT COURSE
270 degree live fire course encompassing 18 different buildings, city
street, and numerous alleys. The rifle grade buildings have explosive, mechanical and firearm breachable doors, walls and windows. Also has an HH3 fuselage mounted thirty-five feet off of the ground, with a lowered ramp and
a fast rope on the starboard side, at the entrance to the range.
FAST ROPE, URBAN CLIMBING AND RAPPEL TOWER
