FACT maintains a five thousand square foot training facility located at Ossington and Dupont in Toronto.

TTAC3 is devoted to providing a community center for the Toronto Airsoft community within which Airsoft combative skills can be honed through the practice of weapon handling, target shooting and through tactical drills using the FACT training space as a training environment.

The FACT facility presents the opportunity for the Toronto Airsoft community to have a dedicated training and “gaming” facility devoted specifically to the interests of the Airsoft community. Special events, competitions and seminars can also be held at the FACT facilities.

In addition a Kit Exchange and Consignment shop is proposed to allow the community to recycle equipment ( except weapons) within the community.

TTAC3 will maintain an Office within FACT facilities and will maintain a web presence to promote Airsoft and the TTAC3 facility.

TTAC3 is a non partisan organization it will not promote or support any one group or organization TTAC3 is envisioned as a central community center for the entire community and to serve as a networking center for local airsoft groups.

Who is behind TTAC3?
TTAC3 is a member organization of the Fighting Arts Collective Toronto under the sole control of the FACT directorship. Leading the development of TTAC3 are Shawn Zirger, Jeet Kune Do Family full instructor and Brian McIlmoyle who served 10 years in the Canadian Forces ( reserves) (infantry), as both an OR and an officer responsible for recruit training. Brian has served as an “umpire” in numerous live fire exercises.

All participants and members of TTAC3 will need to complete this short course before any further courses or Tactical Scenarios can be participated in. Experienced players may apply for an ATQ1 Waiver by outlining in writing their relevant experience. Currently serving or recently retired members of the Military or Police may apply to have this course waived with a written declaration of their relevant experience.

5. TTAC3 rules and conventions


ATQ2 Introduction to Close Combat

ATQ2 will introduce the tactical use of the pistol. The course will include a combination of hands on “classroom” activities along with “dry fire” exercises and will culminate with live fire range exercises and Force on Force Tactical Scenarios. This Course will be focused on the 2 man unit.
Outline:
1. Weapon handling basics.
2. Marksmanship
3. Reflexive Shooting
4. Communication
5. Small Team Basics

ATQ3 Close Quarters Battle

ATQ3 builds on the skills introduced in ATQ2, leveraging the two person team into the standard 4 person fire team. This course is designed to be principally “experiential learning” with the majority of course content being practical exercises in movement, Communication, room clearing and reflexive shooting with the SMG and Carbine.

The full outline of this course is in development.


Future offerings:

Additional courses are in development including Combat Leadership, Personal Protection, and instructor level courses. In addition other courses in “Field Operations” to enhance the skills of the Milsim oriented player will be developed.

Weekend workshops, Competitions, Gun Clinics, and extended play tactical Scenario operations are also planned. In addition TTAC3 will host regular “Open Range” nights “Swap Meets” and “Armoury Sales” to serve to bring the community together in an informal context.

Tentative Schedule:

TTAC3 will operate 3 sessions per week Friday Night 7:00 to 11:00, Sunday afternoon 3:00 to 6:00 ( formal course time) and Sunday Evening 7:00 to 11:00

Timeline for TTAC3 Grand opening:

The project is in development, remaining tasks include the modifications to the facility to accommodate Tactical Scenario play. Initially we will open on a limited basis for play testing and course refinement, thereafter we will hold a “Grand Opening”. We are shooting for a Mid August opening.

Interesting stuff...

Just a comment, shouldn't a 1 year membership be LESS expensive than 2 6-month ones?

Shouldn't it be based on FPS rather than stock vs. non stock? The reason is that "stock" weapons vary on FPS depending on type and brand etc. If you cap the FPS, at least no one can go over it.

A good point... however.. I don't really want to get into having to Chrony everyone, every time.

to my knowledge there are not many stock guns much over 300fps, so I think the stock proviso is effective, I may have to change my mind on this.. but for now.. I am going with a stock only restriction to deal with FPS issues

I know I am being an Idealist.. but I hold out hope that people will use their heads,

As all of the action is going to be close quarters I hope that everyone who participates would have a care for their friends.

In a field situation I can understand the need for a "hot gun" to reach out, but when playing in close quarters such modifications are of little value.

Full auto fire will be rare.. so ROF is immaterial, engagments are within 5 meters, so range immaterial. Accuracy.. at close range.. well as long as you shoot straight it is not much of a factor how accurate your gun, as long as your windage in dialed in.

So the only reason to show up with a hot gun.. is you don't have one that is not "tricked" or you are a GOOB.

The first problem can be solved with money... the second.. there are "other" solutions.

Brian, if you have a screening process in place to handle these issues, then go for it.

It would be nice to assume that people would keep safety in mind. Its still safer to plan for the exceptions though. Just my 34 pesos.

We have 18 meters from fire line to backstop, 24 meters if you want to fire from an elevated position.

We shoot bows in here as well,

You'll want to chrony everyone. Both our ICS MP5SD2 and the M11s fire 320ish. Stock. At a recent Dragon Ops game a stock tm ak fired over 400.

there's an easy way to do it. when you pay your fee/member check in you chrony. fail chrony you either play a different gun or you go home/take pictures.

And if somebody breaks the limit they'll eventually get caught. Allow people to challenge the FPS of a gun, like they do the curve of a stick in hockey, and challenged guns get chronied, and people who are over the limit, but snuck in anyways can get banned for a year or something.
