Tired of training on a static range? Check out what Bristlecone is doing to incorporate cutting-edge, scenario-based tactical training techniques in order to provide the best possible training opportunities in Colorado and the Denver metro area!

What is Scenario-Based Tactical Training and ReACT Training Sessions?

Scenario-Based Tactical Training is the latest firearms training technique available on the civilian level.  Emotionally charged and realistic scenarios are used to test and evaluate how students deal with rapid information processing and decision-making with a firearm under stress.  At Bristlecone, we use Simunitions™ – converted live firearms and corresponding ammunition, protective gear, holsters, and other environment-specific aids to give students a safe and realistic experience.  Students will get a practical sense of their response to concealed carry situations when their adrenaline is high.

ReACT Training Sessions

ReACT stands for Realistic Armed Combatant Training and we offer ReACT training sessions in our Shoot House Environment!  Students have the opportunity to run through several scenarios, receive real-time feedback, and observe their peers via a live video feed. This live feed allows for reliable critiques that foster a legitimate learning experience. 

What is a Shoot House

The Bristlecone Shoot House is a 360° environment designed specifically for Scenario-Based Tactical Training with realistic live Simunition™ firearms and ammunition.  It gives students an opportunity to hone their skills in a venue that approaches real-world conditions!  The Bristlecone Shoot House has movable walls, furniture, and appliances that can be arranged to create a number of scenarios for students to participate in. This creates an adaptable environment, with the flexibility to alter conditions for a new experience every time! 

Shooting Range Simulation at Bristlecone


“This is a fantastic course! As a concealed carry permit holder, I’ve been looking for something exactly like this for years. Most courses that follow this format are typically expensive and last all day long. This one is very affordable and is the perfect length at about 2 hours long, making it much easier to digest the wealth of information learned. Not only does the instructor cover CCW law as it pertains to the state of Colorado, he and his team run each participant through a number of different and realistic shoot and no-shoot scenarios that, heaven forbid, you might someday encounter. This is a non-intimidating course with lots of valuable information tailored to both beginner and advanced shooters.

I was always unsure how I would respond while defending my family or myself in a lethal force encounter. I have gained much more confidence and feel more capable to make smart decisions should I ever have to use my weapon.”
