Course length: Three Days

The optic equipped handgun is not a new concept, though in the last decade technology has improved to allow for the Miniature Red Dot Sight (MRDS) to be reliably mounted to handguns intended for duty and general self-defense carry.  With fundamental differences in techniques between the MRDS handgun and the rifle, instruction on the MRDS handgun presents unique problems for the instructor when introducing their students to proper skill development with their duty or carry MRDS handgun.

The RDS Handgun Instructor course is a culmination of years of MRDS handgun skill and technique development, made available to shortcut instructor trial/error on their own.  This course will provide the trainer with a comprehensive understanding of common MRDS operations and science, as well as concepts and principles for teaching students to best use their MRDS duty or carry handgun.  Students will be expected to meet minimum marksmanship requirements in order to complete this course.

Instruction includes:

Optic science

Optic selection and concerns

Administrative and SOP development for MRDS use (LE)

Duty carry/CCW Carry
