What a great staff of instructors. If you want highly technical training....then this is the place to go….I’ve been shooting most of my life and thought I had a good handle on things…..learned more in 4 days than I learned in 40 years.

Tony Lawson Basic Precision Rifle

This class is amazing and very informative. Rich, Bobby, Dustin, Ted, and the other instructors at the range are phenomenal. I highly recommend this class to anyone wanting to learn how to utilize a handgun for defense. The instructors are true teachers who care about your safety, and that you actually learn from them. They have a massive wealth of knowledge to share, and they offer to continue teaching/offering their help, even after you leave. Once you take a course here, you become their family. I am so excited to come back in August. I hope one day to take all of their classes. They are also very knowledgeable in helping you work with your weapon. This class taught real life applications, and truly made me think of how I would defend myself in various situations. We had wonderful class and on range discussions. We also did a "force on force" simulation, which was a real eye-opener to the stress response that the body has to your life being in danger. I feel blessed to be a part of the Badlands family. I appreciate each and everyone of the teachers and my classmates. Thank you for a great weekend! We will see you in August! 

Heather Campbell Basic Pistol

Great place with great guys. This is real world stuff taken seriously.
You can learn from the best for the best deal.
I highly recommend this place to anyone serious about mastering their weapon. 
You WILL NOT be disappointed!

Robert Brantly

This course breaks the norm.  From the first day on the range you know that you are going to be learning the best techniques from the guys that know what they are talking about.  No time to shine the Oakley’s in this course.  Each day is hard charging and full of action.  When you can feel your buddies rounds go off you know its going to be a good day.  This has a good mix of everything from policy and procedure to down and dirty room clearing and range time.  For those that are getting into SWAT or are looking for a training course this is one you can’t miss.

Thanks for letting me be apart of this great class.  I hope to be seeing you guys again soon.

 

 

Dave Larson Basic SWAT

I ENROLLED MY DEPARTMENT’S NEWLY FORMED TACTICAL UNIT IN THIS COURSE NOT KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT. I WONDERED WHAT A PLACE IN RURAL OKLAHOMA IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE COULD OFFER. I MUST SAY THAT I HAVE BEEN IN LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR OVER 17 YEARS. DURING THAT TIME I HAVE NOT BEEN INVOLVED IN A MORE INTENSE TRAINING COURSE THAN THE BASIC SWAT COURSE THAT MY TEAM ATTENDED HERE AT BADLANDS. THE INSTRUCTORS WERE TOP OF THE LINE . THEY TRAINED US TO DEATH AND WORKED US INTO THE GROUND. BUT, THE THING THAT IMPRESSED ME MOST WAS THE FACT THAT THE INSTRUCTORS WERE RIGHT BESIDE US ALL THE WAY. THE SHORTEST DAY WE EXPERIENCED WAS 12 HOURS. THIS WAS BY FAR THE BEST TRAINING I HAVE BEEN THROUGH IN A LONG TIME. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BADLANDS FOR ANY SPECIALIZED LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING.

 

 

LT. Derek Ford Basic SWAT

From the point of view of a sportsman rather than a pro, I have to tell you that the whole Badlands experience has been one of the most satisfying adventures I’ve ever enjoyed.  The Long Range Hunting course led to Basic LR Precision Rifle, Advanced Phase 1, some personal pistol instruction and the Sniper Quest and Individual matches.  Each and every one of these has been an eye-opening, challenging and memorable vacation.  They took me from point-blank-range deer hunting to the world of 1000-yd competition, gave me an enjoyable pastime in shooting and handloading, and threw me together with some of the greatest guys I’ll ever have the privilege to call bud.  The atmosphere is friendly – only the subject matter is intimidating.  The instructors have got it all together in one sock, so there is no need for glitzy packaging.  You just come away from it able to do and understand a whole bunch of stuff you never even knew was involved.  Few things in life can make one more grateful.

 

 

David Rhodes MD Badlands

I have attended three Badlands sniper courses. The first I paid out of my own pocket. The next two were when I brought my department’s sniper teams to their basic and advanced courses. I had learned so much at the school, I decided to make their course of instruction the basis for our sniper program. The instructors are first rate, and the courses give you information and experience that can save lives. I know several officers whose lives were probably saved in part with the help of these courses. I recommend them without reservation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Det. John T. Latzke Sniper Courses

My 2nd trip to Badlands and Bobby, Rich, Travis, and Richard never cease to come through. I have learned you CANNOT attend one of their courses and not come away a better, safer, more knowledgeable marksman. Who knew you could hit 100 and 200 yard steel targets with a 9mm Glock STANDING?!? I thought it was impossible, but by employing the vast amount of expertise these gentlemen so willing impart to their students, I have learned not to doubt them. Safety is never an issue. The night shooting was not only an outstanding educational experience it was fun (wrapped up shooting glow sticks hanging from a string in total darkness), another previously believed impossibility for an average pistol shooter as myself. Everything I thought I couldn’t do, I did successfully, as long as I employed the instruction of these masterful professional instructors and just plain fun guys. We Oklahomans are so fortunate to have such a wonderful school so close to home. I’m going back soon. Bobby check is in the mail today.

If I typed everything I wanted to say about this course, no one would read it, but truly there are not enough words to describe how important this course is to anyone who carries a handgun every day. I’m not exaggerating when I say this course changed my entire paradigm and what goes through my mind every time I put on my holster. The didactic portion is excellent and the simulations are mind-blowing. It took days for the impact this course had on me to assimilate and resonate with what I already thought I knew about what I would do in various “common” threatening situations. I left with at least 3 or 4 new mantras I reiterate to myself all the time including, “How to think, not what to think,” and the “The handgun facilitates your movement.” This course has cascaded over into my martial arts like a waterfall as well and should be required for an SDA card. I can’t wait for the “Advanced” class should there ever be one and am looking forward to coming back at the next offering and volunteering as a role-player myself. GET TO THIS COURSE. Whatever it takes, just get there.

Jeremy Boucher, M.D.

I recently completed the Basic Precision Rifle (Sniper) Course offered by Badlands Tactical Training Facility, Grandfield, OK.
I’ve been through training…lots of it, and I have conducted training of my own. I won’t bore you with a bunch of “I Love Me” credentials; I’ll just say that I’m no pilgrim when it comes to shooting.
The course at Badlands exceeded my expectations in every way.
The primary course instructors (two of them) were professional, knowledgeable and personable. Frequently, you’ll attend training and talk to people who are very impressed with themselves and try to impress you with their achievements. Not these folks—they impress through their knowledge and performance.
How good is their instruction? I personally saw two novice shooters, who had no rifle experience at all, hitting 1000 yard targets by the end of the third day of instruction.
As for me, my confidence grew by quantum leaps as I learned how to calculate range, how to read the wind in a number of ways and how to determine proper windage. I made first round hits on steel targets out to 800 yards; the 900 and 1000 yard targets took a bit of work. It was very satisfying to see the splash on that 1000 yard target. (Yes—it took me about 6 shots to hit it at first—but I sure would have scared the devil out of something with those first five rounds!)
There is also one other factor that makes this the prime choice for training, and it is something that is not found in ANY of the other schools that I have attended. There is an actual sense of camaraderie and family. These people—the instructors AND their families—go out of their way to make you feel at home, and to make your stay a very pleasant and educational experience.
So, here it is, in black and white: There are plenty of “schools” where you run yourself ragged, get exhausted, shoot targets to 200 yards and call it good. These schools are all over the place.
However, if you want to learn how to SHOOT, and how to do so accurately; if you want to build your confidence in hitting targets on your first shot—in other words, if you want to truly be a Rifleman (or woman!) and if you want to do it in a good atmosphere with people who know their stuff, go to Badlands Tactical. As it has been said, “they’ll do to ride the river with”.
