DUTY HANDGUN Red dot instructor

2 days (16 hours)     $400 

Duty Handgun Red Dot Instructor covers all aspects of transitioning to a slide mounted, red dot sight and equips the instructor with the skills to move their officers to the RDS.  With this course we will discuss the relevant technical issues, optics, mounting, holsters and common maintenance issues.  Over the course of two days officers will fire a variety of drills designed ease transition from conventional sights, enhance dot acquisition speed, dot tracking through recoil and lateral transitions.  The strengths of the RDS platform will be highlighted while training will also include mitigation of common issues related to the RDS.   Officers will drill obscured window, dot failure and other potential problems.   This is an instructor level course and it is recommended that attending officers have their Firearms Instructor Certification.  Non-Instructors can still attend the course as it is a perfect transition platform for new RDS users.  Prospective Instructors will be required to pass a written quiz and shooting qualification.
