OATC 2015 saw over 100 law enforcement officers from around the country gather at THE SITE for 2 days of free training and it was a huge success. The festivities concluded with an emotional speech by Medal of Honor winner Sammy L. Davis. THE SITE is proud to support our law enforcement brothers and sisters.
Whether you are a first time firearm user with the intent of protecting your home and family, recreational shooter, hunter or seasoned professional, it’s our goal to make The Site more than a firearms training venue, but rather your firearms training destination.
The instructor staff consists of former Navy SEALs, active and retired law enforcement officers, and renowned civilians. They are carefully selected based on operational expertise, knowledge base, communication skills, and instructional effectiveness. The Site’s instructors are specifically matched to the level of student experience. No bravado, just world class instruction.
THE SITE offers a variety of courses including beginner to advanced tactical pistol/shotgun/carbine, home and personal defense, hunting rifle and precision rifle classes. Advanced courses for military/law enforcement individuals are also available. Private individual/group classes available upon request.
THE SITE offers convenient on-site lodging at the well appointed Black Bear Lodge North. Consisting of a main lodge with 4 separate cabins over 40 individuals can stay in comfort. Train with us on the range and then kick back and relax with the instructors at the lodge.
Two configurable shoot houses, one live fire and one for non-lethal simulation, combines for the most realistic home defense or urban training available anywhere in the country.
“The Site is a great facility run by amazing people. This place offers a secluded experience that you cannot find any where else in the Midwest. Truly a destination that you need to experience to believe.”Shane I.
“I had the privilege of getting to take the Precision Rifle course at The Site under the instruction of Jim Kauber. Not only did I have a great time but I learned a lot also- and this definitely wasn’t my first time behind a precision rifle. I found Jim’s demeanor as a shooting instructor to be ideal- very patient and clear/articulate. He also did a great job addressing individual questions that students had and adapting the course to each shooter’s individual goals and needs. The facilities are excellent, too. The outdoor area is as clean and tidy as a golf course and the lodge area is cozy with generous amenities. The food is great- home-cooked meals and service with a smile. I felt so relaxed while I was shooting here for a couple days. I loved it. The Site is the perfect place to get away for a couple days and improve your shooting game. I would highly recommend it to anyone, regardless of their present skill level.”James J.
