When setting up the training area be sure that you have your waiver forms if they haven’t filled it out already, perhaps even name badges if you want them to fill out name badges (if you didn’t preprint them) so you can identify them by name and start committing them to memory. Also, set up your table with the SIRTs and your delineated area to make that exclusive area.
Explain the nature of a SIRT-Fire range versus a live-fire range. Even though we are using these SIRTs, just as a live-fire tool, there are some very distinct differences between a SIRT-Fire range versus a live-fire range. Even though we treat the SIRTs as a live-fire tool we extend their capability to emulate real life without compromising any of the four fundamental safety rules. For example, with a SIRT-Fire range you can shoot 360°, high angle, have individuals offset as moving no shots etc. without violating any firearms safety rule and providing extremely valuable practical training extending one’s gun-handling skills and capabilities. However, live-fire ranges are different with extended protocols to stack on the safety while unfortunately limiting the training. For example, in a SIRT-Fire range you as an instructor can be downrange and should be downrange from them where they do not muzzle you but they expand their capabilities of being aware of you as a moving no shoot and pull back to the sul position to point the SIRT downward. Further, in a SIRT-Fire range the students may be offset from one another or even engage in drills where there are moving no shoots from one another. You would not do this with a live fire range because the risk of mistake is too high and costly, but this is invaluable training so people understand there are indeed moving liabilities in real life they have to contend with which of course is almost never emulated on a live-fire range.
Strongly communicate the distinct differences between a SIRT-Fire range and the live-fire range but the common threat is that strict adherence to the safety rules.
