Portable shooting and training barricades by GTGConsult

GTGConsult is a consultancy and firearms training company based in Denmark.

The owner Ebbe Wolff runs various firearms training and is well known as a successful sports shooter.

I am sure that most people are familiar with the VTac barricade. If not, here is a drawing if you want to get an idea or build one.

It’s a great tool if you want to learn how to shoot most if not all possible barricade supports, as well as to force shooters into 45 and 90 degree canted shooting positions and make them aware of what happens with their point of impact.

The problem is that a full VTac barricade is quite a large and heavy piece to carry, let alone load into a car. At least most European-sized cars.

The VTac barricade is super, but it’s the kind of thing you’d rather have permanently at your shooting range and not something you want to move around too often.

As Ebbe travels from location to location, he came up with a solution that he can get into his station wagon, with the back seats folded down.

We tested our new miniature barricades with good success today.

Sticks are 180 cm and the barricade itself is 100×65 cm. Everything fits in the back of a station car with the back seats down.

It can also be used in the horizontal position with 90 cm sticks, or two can be added together to create an L-shape.

On the range it gives the shooter the same options and challenges as a full-size VTAC 9-hole Barricade.

Hopefully this can inspire more people to build barricade support trainers.

    Is there a list or demo of the drills that should be used with a standard barricade?

    “Hopefully this can inspire more people to build barricade support trainers.”

    Why?

    Since I’m apparently not tacticool enough… Why the holes? Why holes in those shapes/positions?

      they can be used to simulate irregularly sized or shaped pieces of cover. I generally just randomly sabresawed them into plywood or cardboard.
