Summit In The Sand, Day One Summary

AN OVERVIEW OF RECOIL’S INAUGURAL LIVE EVENT

In an effort to continue bringing you the best content we can, our team decided to try its collective hand at something new – live events. Our goal was not just to bring great content to you, but to bring it right to you.

From that desire came Summit In The Sand, a 1-½ day event training-focused event held at CowTown Range in Phoenix, Arizona.

Gunfoxx Carbine

Day One was a fully loaded training circuit covering an eclectic array of topics. All of the instructors were Subject Matter Experts in their respective fields as well as RECOIL contributors. We wanted to reach far beyond the traditional pistol and carbine curricula. Our round-robin-style training day included four 2-hour modules covering each of the following topics:

Weaponize The Senses/Index Tracking, Presented by Freddy Osuna of Greenside Training

Tracking

Defensive Blade Tactics, Presented by Chad McBroom of Comprehensive Fighting Systems and sponsored by Microtech Knives

edged

Dirt Medicine for the Armed Citizen, Presented by Glen Stilson of Independence Training and sponsored by Blue Force Gear

Medical

Scoped Carbine Engagements, Presented by Dan Brokos of Lead Faucet Tactical and sponsored by SIG Sauer.

Carbine

Other event sponsors included Federal Ammunition, US Tactical Supply, Hoppe’s, Champion Target, and Brazen Sports. In an effort to reduce student overhead and make the event accessible to as many of our readers as possible, all gear and equipment was provided by these industry partners. Included here are some pictures from Day 1, including students, instructors and gear.
