Students must be competent in safely drawing and re-holstering loaded handguns.
Students should consistently hit an 8 inch diameter target at 7-15 yards using iron sights.
Students should be familiar with shooting from an isosceles stance while utilizing a "high tang, thumbs forward" grip.
Outdoor Range Course covers multiple skill-sets needed to master shooting the slide mounted optic such as consistently "finding the red dot" on draw-stroke, controlling the red dot through recoil, and moving the red dot between multiple targets.
Indoor Range Course WILL NOT contain holster draws due to local range rules and limitations. However, we will work on many other red dot fundamentals including finding the dot, controlling the dot through recoil, and multiple target transitions.
