More About the Course

This Cclass is two full days of classroom theory and actual engagement with targets. Over the two days, the student engages the targets in numerous scenarios, in different positions, using various cover techniques and decision making when engaging in target selection. Be ready to roll on the ground and be dirty by the end of the day. The point of the class is to hone your skills on decision making when engaging targets and shot placement.
