In Part 1 of this article, I eluded to a number of reasons why I think there is a lack of realistic and relevant (to the CP Industry) Live Firearms Training currently being conducted by Hostile CPO's. In Part 2, I am going to attempt to convince you to change that.
As a small business, we cannot and will not compete with others in a war of price reductions, in order to get people through the door. We refuse to sign up to that marketing strategy, which does nothing but reduce the training industry into a retail outlet industry; we, as an Industry, need to strive to be better than that; if we are serious about the commonly and overused mantra of "raising standards in the security industry" then it has GOT to be about more than just making a profit. It has got to be about providing the training that Hostile CPO's need; because they are not getting it in theatre.
As a company, we are fortunate that our training locations are in places that are ideally suited for short family breaks, where you can come and train AND bring your families/wives/husbands over for a "train-by-day-holiday-by-night" kinda deal. We are trying to cater to what YOU need. We are trying to cancel out what is holding YOU back from coming to do Firearms training that we believe you KNOW you should be doing.
Plovdiv, Bulgaria was the 2019 European Capital City of Culture, it has 4000-5000 year old Roman Ruins. It is the oldest, permanently inhabited Town in Europe. It has a 4000 year old "working" Amphitheatre, where you can take in music concerts, plays and shows. It has a Cafe Culture of 1920's Paris; Starbucks or Costa just don't exist. It has an historic and beautiful "Old Town" with little restaurants and antique shops, tucked away in cobbled side streets. It has a vibrant "Kapana" District, full of cafes, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, contained in a cobbled street environment. The restaurants are amazing. Prices are criminally inexpensive and if that wasn't enough, from about April to October, the weather just gets hotter and hotter, rising to approx. 40C in mid-July/August. You can sit outside in a most restaurants, cafes and bars and nightlife? Don't get me started on nightlife. It is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever had the pleasure of working in. We can arrange AIRBNB accommodation for you and your family, in town, at no extra cost to the course price, so that you can leave the Range behind in the evenings and go be with your family.
Our Training Facility near Tuchola, Poland, is situated in a Forest National Park, where you can go Kayaking, Horse Riding, Biking and Motocross. Accommodation is in a 3* Hotel with single, double or family rooms and even 2-bedroomed chalets, if you prefer that extra bit of privacy. It has an indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi. There are Llamas, Deer and hundreds of acres of walking, running and cycling routes throughout the forest. You can even do Motocross if you wish. The beautiful town of Bydgoszcz is about an hour away or the ancient and historic town of Torun is about 90 minutes away and they are definitely worth visiting.
I know I sound like Thomas Cook, but I am simply trying to sell the idea that you CAN do both; Train and Holiday and we will cater for that for you; We just want you to stop using excuses not to train and we are trying to cancel the "I don't want to leave my family again" reason out for you.
So, there it is. This is our pitch; a Busman's Holiday in order to enthuse in you, an appetite to train, in order to make you better at what you do for a living. It's not the best pitch in the world; if I had "Pitched" this badly in my old job, I'd have ended up on the pallet with a Black and Decker at my kneecaps.
