-- when you -- video games like call of duty.
That simulate shooting -- real people -- war zones but now there's a new kind of first person shooter.
In Florida a gun range it lets you shoot of the people as a lesson in self defense joining me now is Dave Kaplan the owner.
I didn't -- shooting range and my today.
-- Well there's been some misconceptions out there and now what we have is we had originally 40000 square foot air soft -- house family friendly environment for the kids in the family cannot play.
And the General Dynamics Corp.
the -- ammunition -- for decades it's been a law enforcement and military training tool.
And they -- -- the civilian range program and we immediately jumped on it because it's an invaluable tool to all the people in the area with concealed weapons permits.
With firearms to help defend themselves and their families.
And now we've implemented into an outstanding training tool.
All right so so you use it you say it's great for self defense.
That it's it's it's better than shooting just at the dummy on the piece of paper -- moving towards you when you're doing target Amy.
Out why what is what is what's the difference here I mean you're actually shooting people with rubber bullets right.
It's not a rubber bullet -- what it is is a -- a man marking cartridges what the company's call it.
Almost like a paint -- but there's no pain it just -- a slight mark on the clothes he could check here here hits.
And we implement it that way the guns are retrofitted.
It's not something that we've created in the backyard this is a proven system again for decades.
From general dynamics.
The weapons -- rendered safe they can only fire this man marking cartridge and yes people doing gauge each other in real life scenario -- I think people who would be critical of it would say well we understand it's been around for decades -- it's training military people who are in war and and killing each other.
Or police officers potentially so so what is the benefit to the average civility.
Well unfortunately don't live in the perfect world people want to be in and we see every day that they're shooting shootings in the workplace shootings all over.
And there's a lot of people carrying guns that are simply not prepared they come to us and they say.
You know I've got this done it got a concealed weapons permit had never even been able to draw -- out of -- holster.
At a normal static gun range just -- a lot to do those things in this brings.
A whole new light to it right 360 degree training to actually see someone on the other end of the target.
And understand the severity of what you're potentially entering -- -- I do get you re going to just as people say them in a moment of crisis you need to have a plan and if -- haven't acted out you don't know Ohio act.
Real quickly kids in the video I see and and do kids take part in this training.
No ma'am that was that was another media misnomer is all weekend and it all week the children are allowed to come with a parent and experience the training we do not have children shooting each other.
Do not have children shooting each other with a rubber bullets the video you saw was mistaken from the air soft side of again.
The the family friendly -- soft that operates only on the weekends so munitions nowhere near them during the weekdays -- Interesting concept and the owner of combat city USA Dave Kaplan thanks much for your time have a great weekend thanks a lot.
