LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING
War HOGG Tactical offers law enforcement firearms training, tactical training and Police K9 training. Our training program uses a building block methodology focusing on building a solid foundation based on combat experience.
War HOGG Tactical has a different approach to our training, we want to change the "Flat Range" mentality by treating the range like the real world. We use t-shirts over targets to add realism and incorporate shooting under physical duress into all of our Law Enforcement courses.

This video is a quick overview of a 1 day War HOGG Tactical Free Law Enforcement training course.
Shooting under physical duress is a staple of all War HOGG Tactical Law Enforcement training.
This is another example of one of our many shooting under physical duress (stress shoot) courses of fire. As a Law Enforcement officer you have to add physical duress shooting into your marksmanship program.
Adding Realism To Training
In every War HOGG Tactical we have the students bring a t-shirt that they can shoot during the course. This act of clothing a targets gets the officer out of the flat range mentally and adds that realism needed in Law Enforcement firearms training.

WAR HOGG 1 Day LE Pistol
On 10/13/20 I had the opportunity to take a Pistol course with Rick Hogg of WAR HOGG tactical. I heard about the course through one of the swat guys at one of our partnering departments. I signed up that day. I’d just arrived from a deployment about a month previously and hadn’t taken any outside training courses in 2020, or returned to LE work yet for that matter. For this reason I didn’t have my issued gun or my old issued gun since my department switched guns in my absence. For this course I borrowed a P226 in .357 SIG from a coworker since this was the gun we used before I left for the deployment. I used this gun for 90% of the course. I also brought a Glock 19X with an Aimpoint H1 to shoot. For the P226 I used a Safariland SLS/ALS holster and the 19X I used just an ALS. There were two shooters that shot red dot pistols both were issued guns with Holosun optics on MOS G17s. Pretty much everyone else shot 40 S&W or .45.
Rick started off talking about how this course is based on his experience in the SOF community and his deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. He also brought in 2 other instructors Kelly Defense and Force Solutions with LE backgrounds to keep his lateral limits in terms of LE speak. This also covered the safety brief in which the 4 fundamentals of safety were discussed.
Rick started off going over the WAR HOGG Admin load. This load concludes what Rick terms the WAR HOGG check, which is a presscheck. After everyone loaded their guns up we began working on presentation and training our eyes. Rick went in depth on both iron sights and red dots for those that it applied to. I made a mental note on the red dot portion as I wasn’t planning on shooting my H1 gun until after lunch. Rick talked about training your eyes. We started with a cold evaluation drill shot one at a time. He went over scoring. Rick goes by the only complete hits count for scoring, partial (half in half out) are missed liabilities. Afterwards Rick went into a discussion of fundamentals. Throughout the day Rick spoke on Combat Mindset and how to get out of the range mindset, and how many things are done because the flat range. During the reload block he talked about the Newhall shooting where a cop was killed with brass in his hand as he had no doubt done on the range. I understand that this is alleged to be a rumor but has been passed on as truth for many, many years. In any case we know that individuals rise to their level of training, and that was the point behind the example. We then began to work on the draw. Everyone on the line with the exception of 2 were using the SLS/ALS holsters. Rick went over shot placement as it pertains to people and worked clothing into the shooting drills. During this portion we also worked on movement. Rick went over shooting under duress and ways to add this into private training. This is something that is not often found in LE organizations. Stress shoots such as those at the tactical games are something that I will be incorporating into live fire practice. The final drills which required under duress shooting is when I switched to my red dot gun. This included a competition in which one of the red dot shooters who is a department instructor and swat member stomped the crap out of everyone else with 100% accuracy on both iterations and faster times than most. He shot solid all day. My total round count was 425 for .357SIG and 60 rounds 9mm. This was a great course and I picked up some things that I will definitely be adding into my sessions.
