BluCore Shooting Center, a shooting range, retail gun shop and online gun store located in Denver, CO, has just announced the official opening of their new “Black Site” a specialized firearms training facility. The facility was designed to provide civilian and law-enforcement firearm training classes with specialized, real-world training scenarios, in a secure, private location in the Denver metro area.

In military terminology, a “black site” is a location at which an unacknowledged or ‘black’ project is conducted. From the outside, the building looks like just another industrial property. Hidden inside of the BluCore Shooting Center’s ‘Black Site’ is a carefully designed series of different sized rooms and spaces to be used for cutting edge firearm scenario training, as well as a classroom which allows BluCore to instruct as well as debrief following training sessions.

BluCore believes that you should train the way you fight, and classes are designed to provide “Real world training, for the real world”. Being trained by former Navy SEAL’s, Green Berets and other special operations soldiers means that you’re being trained by the world’s best, with proven, battle tested techniques, something that is unique to BluCore Shooting Center.

Firearm training classes are offered for civilians, from beginner to advanced shooters, and for law enforcement personnel who want to expand their skill set and learn advanced tactical assault techniques.
