WHO IS JEFF JOHNSGAARD?
In 2009 and until his premature death from cancer in 2011 Paul Castle the creator of the CAR System declared Jeff Johnsgaard to be the official heir to the CAR System. Jeff has proudly continued to forward the CAR System both in technique and in instructional framework to this day. The latest evolution of CAR is his 360° CQD (Close Quarter Defense) training. This is much more than just the CAR System and offers firearms and physical skills along with specific teaching techniques to aid learning and retention.

Course Equipment List:

- Magazines – bring a minimum of 3 magazines, (4-5 if the magazine capacity is less than 10).
- Ammunition: Minimum 600 rounds (typical ammo expenditure is 750-900 rounds). We realize that ammunition is both expensive and increasingly hard to come by and do not want to dissuade anyone from attending due to ammunition but, this course is based around firing multiple rounds on multiple targets quickly. Proper marksmanship principles will be practiced but there is no substitution to proper practice with live ammo especially when in the presence of a certified Master Instructor who can analyze both your form and the target.
- Hip or Thigh Carry Holster and adequate Belt – (you can bring concealed holsters too if you utilize them but you must first check with head instructor to ensure you can use them on the course. We want you to train how you will be carrying).
