Pistol Mounted Optics Course April 19th
Our Pistol Mounted Optic course is designed to implement the use of a reflexive sight on a pistol. Students will develop the skills necessary to use a pistol mounted optic both two handed and with strong and support hand only. Students will also develop the skills necessary to negotiate obstacles and shoot on the move with the pistol mounted optic. Throughout this course students will record shooting data to compare their performance with backup iron sights as well as the pistol mounted optic. This course will also cover equipment, policy considerations, and guidelines for establishing a training curriculum.
