NEW at Bristlecone – Reality Based Training!

Tired of training on a static range?  Check out what Bristlecone is doing to incorporate a cutting edge training technique to bring you the best possible training options in the Denver Metro area.

Reality Based Training is designed to test and evaluate how students deal with rapid information processing and decision making while performing complex motor skills under stress. Using emotionally charged scenarios with Simunitions enabled firearms to apply skills acquired through previous training, students will get a realistic idea of their response to concealed carry situations under stress.

In addition to the Simunitions (force-on-force) environment, our Reality Based Training also incorporates our Ti Virtual Simulator.  The Ti Simulator is a state of the art training tool in which realistic scenarios are presented to the student to test and evaluate their responses and reactions in a digital environment.

We are incorporating Reality Based Training in to our CCW classes, as well as offering scenario only classes.  Take a look at training our calendar here for upcoming classes.


What our students say:

“I originally signed up for the Women’s Only CCW class but was offered the opportunity to sign up for the pilot class for the CCW Reality-Based training. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this class, however it exceeded any expectations I had. Not only was it educational, but it was fun and taught by a great team of instructors.

The class was great for shooters with all levels of experience. Being a novice shooter, I was apprehensive at first. However, the class was far from intimidating, and the instructors ensured that everyone was comfortable. The Reality-Based training allowed for me to help reinforce the theories learned in class.

I encourage women who are looking for a great class to learn how to shoot and want to obtain their CCW to sign up for this class. I took Women’s Intro to Pistol before this class and I recommend that class too. Thank you Bristlecone for your awesome instructors!
