Ancient City Shooting Range
3021 Agricultural Center Drive, St Augustine, FL
Personal Security Detail is a unique training course that addresses some of the most common concerns associated with using your personal defensive weapon around innocents. In a real-world scenario, you would have extreme stress and crowds of innocent people to negotiate through, two difficult things to simulate in a controlled training environment. Our Cadre will use dry and live-fire drills to accustom participants to stressful environments. This course builds confidence and problem-solving skills in some of the most common threat scenarios involving a firearm and protection of a dignitary. By the end of this course, participants will have the opportunity to test their firearms in small teams engaging the threat, protecting a VIP, and getting him or her to safety.
Personal Security Detail is not recommended for beginners. We recommend the Active Shooter Intervention – Pistol course prior to Personal Security Detail if you are a beginner.
Due to space and safety requirements needed to conduct these events the ranges may be up to a two-hour drive from the city listed. Please keep this in mind when making lodging arrangements.
The duration of this course runs 8-10 hours.
All GORUCK Firearms Courses and Events utilize scenario-based training which is incorporated into dry practice prior to any live fire. All participants will practice target identification and discrimination, movement, weapons manipulation, and other dynamic drills with the cadre and others. These drills will be facilitated with inert weapons enabling a safe and realistic training environment. Both pistols and rifles will be rendered inert with barrel/chamber blocking plugs. Further, each student must fully participate in dry practice prior to commencing live fire.

Firearms Training utilizes semiautomatic pistols, however, we offer custom classes on any and all small arms. Full-Frame pistols are recommended. Sub-Compact pistols are not recommended.
We offer Glock 19 (9x19mm) pistols for use upon request in advance. To request the use of one of these pistols, follow the instructions in your “Event Confirmation” email.
SERPA-style holsters not authorized. Due to the nature of the training offered and the repetitive drawing and holstering of firearms, SERPA style holsters are not authorized for GORUCK Firearms training courses. If you do not have an alternative holster available, one may be provided with advanced notice.
Keep firearms in vehicles. Please take care that when arriving at training sites, participants are not to remove from their vehicles or otherwise handle firearms until instructed to do so by the event cadre. In an effort to enforce good firearms safety and best practices, we would ask that firearms remain in vehicles until specifically told to bring them out.
At this time we are unable to transport weapons into New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and California. If your event is in either of these states you will need to provide your own weapon. The single exception is Lake Tahoe, CA because the range used is on the Nevada side of the border.
Shooters who display weapons proficiency will be challenged by the Cadre to increase their skill level by various methods. This will not have an impact on the overall conduct of the class.
