8 Hour Block

This combo course will offer the unique perspective of the application of the tactics taught both in the context of a military setting and a domestic Law Enforcement setting, as one instructor spent over 25 years in Special Operations and the other spent an equal amount of time in Law Enforcement.  This  No Fail Pistol course is designed to equip patrol and tactical officers with the skills to make high risk / high reward pistol shots in critical situations. This 8-hour course stresses the importance of being able to place accurate hits on small, moving, and limited exposure critical areas of the human body to instantly cease all motor function or cause rapid unconsciousness usually resulting in death.


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 optics and lasers (and iron sights if needed)

  • 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.

Required Equipment: 

  • Duty Pistol with 400 rounds of ammunition, 3 magazines minimum.

** Disclaimer: Many of the topics will only be touched on briefly and some may not be covered, based upon the pace of the class and the allotted time. This is meant to provide you with an insight into the instructor's teachings, however, given the limited time of only 8 hours, it will not be as thorough as a normal class would be**
