    CMS Pistol Mounted Optics Instructor - Zanesville OH 6/21-23/24

    John & Sue Burton are hosting my pistol-mounted optics instructor class at Briar Rabbit Shooting Sports in Zanesville, Oh.

    Pistol Mounted Optics Instructor Course

    Tuition $630 (includes range fee)

    Pistol-mounted optics arenít coming; they are here!
    This course focuses on how to teach the optic for reactive and proactive use while taking legal and human factors into consideration while addressing what does and doesn't change with the PMO. Students will develop a knowledge-based foundation for addressing equipment, training, plus program and policy development concerns.

    Equipment: 650 rounds of reliable pistol ammunition, mid to full-size handgun w/optic, proper holster, three magazines with pouches, and a suitable belt. Eye & ear protection, appropriate range attire for the weather conditions. Note-taking materials, fluids, and snacks.

    Prerequisites: Successful completion of state or national law enforcement firearms instructor program -or- Rangemaster's advanced instructor course. If you don't have the RM cert, please reach out and we can talk.

    About the Instructor: Erick is a lead instructor (or range master) at Gunsite and a retired Sheriff's Sergeant from northern California. Based on his experience and training with pistol-mounted optics, he was asked to develop Gunsite's pistol-mounted optics classes. He served in the US Army and made it through grad school. Erick also taught for Aimpoint and is a presenter at Rangemaster's yearly TacCon.

    This is a superb class. I took it last year. Erick does a great job working with each student to help them build a program that works for their agency or needs.

    It's definitely not "Okay, shoot these drills and collect your paper". You do a lot of work learning how to analyze and present training to shooters.

    Here are two class reviews from people that know their business: Warren Wilson and BrYan Eastridge. I am kinda biased, both of those guys are friends. But their thoughts are spot on.
