Fortress is offering our 20-hour Level I Rifle Course with night shoot, October 5/6, at the St. Joseph’s County Sportsman’s Club, Sturgis, Michigan.

Level I Rifle is designed to elevate the private citizen from novice to “rifleman.” Course is based on real world scenarios which the armed citizen may be tasked to address. We are not pretending to play “army”, and we are not training you to take on an invasion from the planet Gorkonot. We’re teaching you how to live with, and deploy, your rifle during a temporary time of civil unrest, an active murderer event, or a home invasion.

Cost is $375 per student

“Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.” – James Madison, Federalist No. 46, January 29, 1788
