pistol mounted optics

This 2-day Red Dot Pistol class is designed to implement the use of a reflexive sight on a pistol in multiple applications. Students must already be proficient with handgun safety, operation, and function. Students will develop skills necessary to properly use a reflexive sight both two handed and single handed. They will also improve on the skills and knowledge to successfully negotiate around obstacles and shoot on the move. Over the 2 day course, students will record shooting data to compare their performance with back up iron sights and the reflexive sight.
