Beyond A Door Shoothouse

Class Cost

$450
Includes:
  • 2 Days UTM Rental

Plus:
  • $25 / Day Range Fee

Class Flow: PHYSICALLY & MENTALLY INTENSE / This class is open to both Handgun and Long Gun.

Having to make movement inside a structure with an armed intruder is never advised. Even though this can put you at a major disadvantage, we recognize that there are certain circumstances when you may have to leave a known area for important reasons.

The culmination of all the core, foundation and advanced training classes we offer; MDFI’s Beyond A Door course takes place in a 360 degree shooting environment where each student’s capabilities and information processing are put to the test.

MDFI’s 2-Day Beyond A Door course will teach you how to make movement in any structure without exposing yourself unnecessarily while giving you a higher level of success when dealing with a real-world situation. Students will make multiple day and night runs through the shoot house during the two day class receiving feedback after every single evolution.

WHAT THIS CLASS IS:

This is a problem-solving class. Not a shooting class. You just happen to have a firearm with you. This is THE class to run your gear as you have it set up at home or your daily carry. This is the class to test your ability think, shoot and move at the same time. THIS CLASS IS HIGH-STRESS AND PHYSICALLY DEMANDING.

WHAT THIS CLASS IS NOT:

This class is not a tactical fantasy band-camp to wear cool gear, shoot a lot and take photos to post online. This class will not allow for showboats, egos, or bad weapon-handling skills. This class is not an excuse to dress up and play SWAT.

NOTE: THIS CLASS IS UTM/SIM ONLY AT AN INDOOR SHOOTHOUSE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO SIMULATE COMMON OCCUPIED STRUCTURES. LIVE WEAPONS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED* Please carry to class as legally warranted. Cadre will notify students of proper range-safety procedures prior to training.

Law Enforcement: This course is MCOLES certified through MDFI and counts toward training credit.

Lodging available on-site for $25/night. Email us for more details.

I am incredibly happy I took Beyond a Door this Spring (2019) because Trek and his cadre are excellent teachers and by performing new tasks I identified (and they helpfully highlighted) multiple areas of improvement for me. Each run showed me multiple aspects of my abilities I need to focus on to improve and Trek et. al. showed me additional behaviors I was not aware I did or did not exhibit, which was very important for me to learn.

Watching other students run through their scenarios was also quite helpful because it acted as virtual additional runs for me to help me learn more and solidify as much of the new information as possible. Taking the course multiple times would be very helpful, I believe!

Thank you Trek and Cadre for all of your hard work and excellent teaching!

Outstanding class (03/23 & 24/2019)! MDFI offers a number of great courses that teach how to use a firearm under a number of different conditions—low light, concealment, up-close-and-personal, and so on. This course assumes we already know how to shoot, and focuses on staying alive in a 360 degree threat environment, deciding whether or not to shoot, and making the environment work for us. I’d previously taken the classes recommended in the course description, and I can definitely say that this was, by far, the most intense class to date. I learned almost as much from watching other students make their runs as I did from my own. The 23 hours of facility time just flew by, and very little of that was ‘down time.’ Trek and the cadre once again demonstrated the gold standard of firearms instruction. I came away having learned a lot, humbled by how much I have left to learn, and knowing how and what to practice on my own to lock in what this class was all about. If you’re serious about carrying a firearm, I consider this course to be a necessity. And, true to the MDFI ethos, the “no ego zone” was in full effect, and the course was more fun than I had expected. Great job, guys. And thanks, MDFI family. –Dick Swanson

Great class! Having done some live fire shoot house classes I enjoyed the simunition training in this class even more. I didn't notice a difference in the effectiveness of the training and the margin of safety was much higher. We were also able to run through the house many more times than in a live fire shoot house class, allowing for greater learning potential and repetition. Trek and his team were very good instructors and I thought their presentation and steps in the curriculum built on each other effectively. I would take this class again, and consider it to be crucial training if you are going to carry a firearm. Always humbling to take classes like this and realize how much I still have to learn and how much I can get better.

This was the third FOF with MDFI I've taken (after VCQB-O and HE), and it won't be the last. Along with live-fire, mindset, and medical training, I think this kind of training is absolutely essential to developing a real ability to address a life-threatening event. I've trained with several top-shelf providers, and Trek and his team (Tim, Tom and Brandon for BAD) take 1st place in my book. The MTAC facility provides the perfect environment for the training they provided, and I left wiser than when I showed up. Also, with 25 runs in two days, you get one hell of a lot of training reps for your dollar. Finally, the camaraderie that Trek and his guys foster is an added bonus. Thanks, Fellows, and I'll see you again soon! HWF

Great class. If you carry a gun as part of your daily life, or you have a firearm as part of your home protection plan, this class is a MUST. Moving through a structure with a gun and doing it correctly isn't easy, it takes practice. To practice, you have to have proper instruction. That is where Trek and the cadre shine. They take you step by step with seemingly unlimited patience in correct door entry, building searching, and room clearing. Can't wait until my next MDFI class.
