Pistol Marksmanship for Life

8 Hours - Pistol Marksmanship for Life – Dave BORRESEN

The intended audience for this course are shooters with prior knowledge of the fundamentals of pistol marksmanship and strong weapons handling skills. Although students will be taught the proper fundamentals, this course will quickly progress towards adding stressors to test and evaluate one’s speed and accuracy in an attempt to prepare one for a firearms engagement. Once students have a grasp of shooting stagnant, shooting on the move and under an elevated heart rate, students will compete against themselves as well as classmates pushing each other in a safe and competitive environment. This course will be competitive, physical and students will learn not only how to shoot under different stressors but also how to take these lessons learned and apply them to life, their own training and that of their team or agency. This course is for someone that wants to train hard and add an athletic approach to their training.
