Low-Light High Risk Room Entry with Simunition(R)
Check out the "Courses and Dates" section for this high value training opportunity. This course will sell out fast.
Dates: April 20th & 21st in Abbotsford, BC
Once again, Civil Advantage brings you an intense weekend of force on force training. This time we
address a critical skill set important to your survival, low-light scenarios. Why is this type of training
absolutely essential? Here are a few facts to consider...
• More than half of police involved critical incidents occur in low light conditions.
• Hit ratios suffer greatly in low light (even worse than the average of 18%).
• 75% of "Mistake-of-Fact" shootings occur in low light.
The first half or the first day will be common room entries. After that we will delve headlong into low
light scenarios for the remainder of the weekend. Some in the training community suggest that low
light be more than half of an officers training days. We are promoting that idea for the 2013 Spring
Training event. This is a force on force opportunity using Simunition(R) and actors. This time the
targets shoot back...

Civil Advantage Ammo Group (CAAG)
This is a non-profit group to coordinate bulk ammo purchases for interested shooters.
We will be the coordinator or other members will as the group grows.
How it works: We have set up a simple forum to communicate and notify all members
of new purchasing opportunites. When a new bulk purchasing opportunity is posted a message
will go out to all members. Info about the opportunity will be posted in the forum and chime in
if you are interested. We will form an order and place it at one time.
Typically there will be a deadline to form the purchase or a time window to use our
groups name to get the agreed pricing. We will all purchase directly from the seller
as Civil Advantage is not an equipment supplier nor will we be in the foreseeable
future. This is a group by shooters and for shooters. If you can find a connection
for cheap ammo, feel free to bring it to the group by messaging an admin.
Join the forum and bring your friends. the more people we have the better deals we can get.

CFSC & New beginner AR15 and Semi Auto Pistol Courses
We have added new CFSC dates to our schedule. We are now providing instruction in Aldergrove
close to the freeway to make it easier for our customers outside of the Fraser Valley to join in.
We have also added an exciting new opportunity for our students that are interested in combat
style shooting or a unique educational experience. Introduction to Combat Firearms for AR15 or
Semi Auto Pistol is a way for beginners or anyone else that wants to expand their skills to get a
solid foundation in this type of shooting. There are no expert operators here, no SWAT or Special Forces members,
just you (or you and your friends) learning the basics and feeling free to ask questions or work on
basic skills. We will walk you through the fundamentals including instruction in combat stress management. Written course
materials will be provided for you to keep including a drill guide to help you practice effectively when you're at the range.
This course makes a great gift for the conventional shooter as well. See the description
in "Courses & Dates" or call for more information.

What our students had to say...
What determines if a Canadian Firearms Safety Course is of a high quality or not?
Firstly, the instructor needs to have not only experience in a variety of firearms
but also in the handling of these firearms in different sports. Secondly, the instructor
needs to be a competent teacher and communicator as well as genuinely care whether
the students leave with the training they expected. It is very important that he or she
be patient and provide a comfortable and professional environment to cover this critical
material. And lastly, the equipment, meaning the firearms must be the type and quality
the student will encounter in the real world. The firearms used in the CFSC must
not be poorly maintained.
All of these qualities are fulfilled at Civil Advantage
because we care about the students we certify and their contribution to our
society and our firearms community.
Some Kind Words From Our Students
I've passed your card along to a lot of people so hopefully you'll be getting a few more
phone calls from members! Great course, great instruction. It really rounded out my knowledge
concerning the types of civilian firearms I encounter on the job.

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the CFSC course we took with you.
We found you to be experienced, and presented the material in an easy to understand
format, truly caring about our safety and the safety of others when handling any firearm.
Although safety was your first objective, you made the course enjoyable and had a
wealth of information to share. My husband and I would recommend this or other
training from Civil Advantage to anyone either a beginner or advanced.
Gary and Ashley, Jan 2011
I wanted to comment on your classroom, and range training. Simply put, there should be more teachers like you out there. You made the classroom a very relaxed environment, all the while keeping the most important aspects of the course, safety and common sense at the forefront.
I truly appreciate your calm direct approach. It was most beneficial to me as demonstrated at the range. One mistake could hurt someone, and that is the most concerning scenario for me. I hope that with more practice, the carry and concerns of the range will be as safe and enjoyable as possible.
I look forward to getting my PAL and ATT so I can join the club at Abbotsford. I’ve found a passion in target shooting and now am looking forward to developing my skills. Thank You!!
Steve, Jan 2011
I wanted to thank you for putting on such an awesome course. I found it really professional
and your explanations were concise and well done. I will definitely be recommending you to friends! I
was always some what nervous around firearms and now I feel that in almost any situation I can
pick up a gun make it safe and use them safely.
