Cedar Valley Outfitters is pleased to have Michael J. Anderson come and teach his class Landing the Plane: From Pre-Assault To Calling Counsel here on January 31 and again on February 01, 2015.
Anderson describes his class as follows:
Objective: The goal of this course is to help the student to identify and respond to emergent threatening behavior by unknown persons in places that support violent criminal acts.
Key information and skills:
- The victim selection process and how to stay out of it.
- Categories of pre-assault indicators and how to recognize them.
- How to maintain distance and buy yourself time.
- How to use your words without falling into dialogue.
- Ask, Tell, Make as it applies to civilians.
- When to “Go First” and what to do.
We will utilize role play and scenarios to give participants the opportunity to practice a safer way of interacting with unknown persons. Our focus is on appropriate, authentic, and believable responses to realistic encroachment problems. Our role play will include contacting authorities for help, interacting with help when it arrives, and who to call in the aftermath.
Equipment will be provided. There is no live fire or hard contact during this course.
The fee for this class is $100. You must pay in advance for this class at Cedar Valley Outfitters. This reserves your spot for the class and ensures you are able to take the class on the day you desire. This is an off-site class and you will be provided the class location when you register.
The class begins at 9:00 am and will run from 4 to 6 hours in length. Please plan your day accordingly. There are no scheduled breaks. Bring water and snacks if desired.
~ A carbon fiber Kubotan ~
Cedar Valley Outfitters will be hosting a Kubotan class on December 13, 2015. The class will run from 9 am to 12:30 pm and be held in the old store location (across the parking lot from the present store). The class fee is $40.00 and is taught by Mr. Chris Smaby.
A Kubotan is close quarter self-defense tool. As a Kubotan is simply a rod of hard material it is easy to replace a Kubaton with everyday items such as pens, markers and flashlights when one finds themselves in a self-defense situation.

The new Springfield Armory XD Model 2
Cedar Valley Outfitters is pleased to now carry the new Springfield XD Model 2. The Springfield XD Model 2 is available chambered in both 9mm and .40 S/W in both black and bi-tone finishes. Here’s what Springfield Armory has to say about their latest edition to their product line:
“The XD® Mod.2™ is the refinement of a classic, a distillation of greatness. Those things that made the XD® what it is remain and are amplified, revised or improved in order to bring you the next step in the evolution of the polymer framed pistol.
When picking up the Mod. 2™, shooters will find that critical aspects of the design have been fine-tuned. Mod. 2™ ergonomics are a next-level experience that you have to feel to believe and understand. The entire interface between the shooter and the gun has been updated, while retaining the Point-and-Shoot characteristics that made it famous. Key features have been tweaked and enhanced to further enable effortless shooting. And you’ll find that the overall package is now more concealable as well.”
Recently Rob Pincus took the XD® Mod.2™ to the range for a “test drive” and shared his thoughts here.
Cedar Valley Outfitters is open 7 days a week. Stop in and we’ll be glad to talk with you and help you find a gun fitting your needs. You can also find us on here on Facebook.
On June 11, 2015 Cedar Valley Outfitters will host the Combat Focus Carbine class at the North Linn Fish and Game Club in Central City, Iowa. This class will be taught by Rob Pincus.
This is a one day version of the Combat Focus Carbine course. The CFC Program applies the principals of the Combat Focus Shooting Program to the world of semi-automatic rifles. Stressing efficiency, working with what the body does naturally and training in context, Combat Focus Carbine is a progressive and dynamic course. Students will engage in a variety of shooting drills and maneuvers designed to make their shooting (sighted and unsighted) more intuitive. In addition to the fundamentals of close quarters defensive rifling, students will be guided through handling techniques, transitions to back up weapons and understanding how a variety of factors affect their balance between speed and precision with a carbine. Improvised shooting positions for heightened precision capabilities (smaller targets & ranges out to 150 yards) will also be covered.
