Sim House Run & Gun

Defender Outdoors Shooting Center and the Defender Training Academy have established our Sim House Run & Gun events. Within these events individuals will be able to move through the Sim House and engage multiple targets, both shoot and don’t shoot, in order to clear out the facility of all hostile targets. These runs will cost $25 per run in which you will receive firearm rental (you cannot use your own firearm), ammunition, protective equipment and be thrown into a chaotic environment in order see how well you can perform. These runs through the Sim House will be on a first come first serve basis and you will be allowed to simply check in at the front desk and await your turn to run. So bring a group of friends, we can time the runs, and see who the fastest most accurate shooter is in your group.
