This is a two day course designed primarily for Law Enforcement agencies that are required to deploy or operate in urban environments. Special emphasis is placed on accurate precision at modest to short ranges (0-400yds). This class is designed for the police marksman but all may attend. Students should have a basic proficiency in firearm safety, marksmanship fundamentals and firm knowledge in their equipment before attending this course. It is preferred if the student has had little or no formal instruction that they attend the Basic and Advanced Long Range Precision Rifle Courses as a prerequisite, but it is not a requirement. This course will utilize the entire K&M Shooting Complex, fully taking advantage of the 12 plus ranges on site. Students that complete the course will have a proficiency in firearm safety, firearm handling under stress conditions, advanced marksmanship fundamentals, a combined knowledge of their personal capabilities with their equipment and systematic training methods for future progression.
