RED DOT SIGHT (RDS) PISTOL CONCEPTS (OPEN) OCTOBER 11, 2020
Duration: 1 Day
Location: Brooks, AB
Capacity: 16 students
Gun Rentals: $75/Day
This course serves as an introduction to the RDS system as it relates to recreational or competitive shooting. A variety of pistol optics will be reviewed at length and then transitioned to the range for practical application.
The fundamentals of practical pistol craft will remain; however, the RDS will allow the shooter optimal focus on the target and their environment in order to make them as efficient as possible. Topics will include optic zeroing procedures, proper presentation, dot tracking, self-diagnosis and problem solving, multiple target engagements and basic movements.
Drills and data will be collected and presented so that the student can continue RDS training on their own and apply it as necessary.
Note: this is NOT an introductory firearms course, and students must come with previous holster certification and a firm understanding of firearms safety.
