Training Objectives


·         General refresher on the basic fundamentals of gun handling and marksmanship (BY EXCEPTION.  Come to this course knowing how to shoot. This is an intermediate to advanced level shooting course)

·         Zero/confirm zero on all sights.

·         Provide students/officers a chance to have their shooting techniques observed by the trainer in order to provide that student/officer with individual feedback on ways to improve performance in accuracy and speed

·         Engagement of low percentage targets (small strike area often obscured with a hostage or other no-shoot area) 

·         Shooting multiple targets

·         Shooting on the move (if class progression allows)

·         Competitive shooting drills around your peers to build esprit de corps and create self-induced stress to perform

·         The student will understand the importance of critical hits and the consequences of a miss, and will be able to diagnose if they are capable of achieving hits at any given moment based upon pre-shot diagnostics of their sights in real time.

·         This course will enable the student to continue to develop and maintain these skills through the use of clear, repeatable standards.

·         The student should leave the course with a firm understanding of their personal capability to make low percentage “No-Fail” shots.

·         Class Price 550.00
