Class Information:

Students will be taught weapons handling to gain fluid transitions between pistol to rifle and rifle to pistol.  6 drills of "Operator Standards" are taught to each student, with each drill having a required hit under an allotted time limit. 

The second day will involve a review of the 6 drills on short paper ranges followed by steel target shooting on multiple pistol/rifle ranges.  The drills from the first day will be used on steel ranges on the second day engraining technique into your pistol/rifle shooting.  All shooters will be tested on the 6 "Operator Standard" drills at the end class. 

End of Class Objective:

This class will give you fluid weapon handling skills to efficiently transition between rifle to pistol and pistol back to rifle.
