Train Like SEALs, Special Forces, Marine Recon, Elite Law Enforcement & SWAT Teams!

Forty years of training police officers has taught me many valuable firearms tactics, street survival, and high-stress combat performance lessons.

The class sometimes goes a little longer because of student questions and training with the ‘SIRT’ Laser Pistol training system, which by the way I am confident is the best method for teaching new shooters how to operate today’s modern handguns and maintaining the marksmanship skills of old salty shooters. Along with the Laser Pistols, we use electronic & computerized targets intended to provide students with the best shooting experience, educational feedback, and shot analysis. The Laser Pistols we use are not cheap video game toys. They are expensive replicas of real handguns and have functional features like the Glock 17, 19, 22 &34. We also utilize a variety of popular, concealable sub-compact semi-auto & revolver pistols, such as the Glock 42/43, Ruger LC9, Ruger LCP, S&W Shield, S&W J-Frame 38, and Taurus PT111. To fill in performance or training gaps, we have several ‘BLOWBACK’ laser handguns,which are used to demonstrate the recoil of actual live fire firearms. This is leading-edge high-tech training.

Results: You’ll leave the class introduced to several gun safety, marksmanship skills, and know when applied; they’re effective protection and they really work!
