Pistol Mounted Optics Instructor Course “Team One Network”
October 24 - October 26, 2023   |   Academy - 1595 Bonham Rd. Bristol, VA 24201
Pistol Mounted Optics Instructor Course
The Southwest Virginia Criminal Justice Academy will be hosting a Pistol Mounted Optics Instructor Course presented by the Team One Network on October 24 – 26, 2023.
New technology has made advancement in optics and electronics. This has led to the popularity of Red Dot Optics in the military, law enforcement, and competition. The Red Dot Optics sighting system is one of the most effective tools available due to the sight being super imposed on the target while the target is in full focus of the shooter. Like everything else new to the shooter, Red Dot optics require some training but not as much as Iron sights on the initial training. Faster and more accurate shots are recorded using Red Dot sights as compared to Iron sights with both rifle and pistol.
This is an instructor development course. Participants must have current certification as a police firearms instructor. This course will refine the skills of instructors necessary to develop and run Red Dot Optics programs. The course includes both classroom and live-fire range time.
Duration: 3-Days (24-Hours)
Ammunition: 1,300 rounds Pistol ammo (9mm if borrowing pistol)
Equipment Required: Pistol with Red Dot Optics (loaner pistols available from Team One), duty belt with all issued gear, body armor, flashlight. Participants should come prepared to train in all weather conditions and should bring a hydration system or water bottle. Wraparound eye protection, ear protection, and brimmed hats will be worn during all live fire training. Participants should wear clothing suitable for training but similar to garments worn while working.
