Survival Shooting Training Program

The Survival Shooting Training Program is a dynamic five day training program specifically designed to develop survival/reactive shooting skills.  These skills are designed to be applied in any stressful situation. The student learns to apply the reactive shooting concept to virtually any handgun or shoulder mounted weapon used in law enforcement or military today.  This program focuses primarily on the semi-automatic pistol, with additional emphasis on shoulder mounted weapons (the submachine gun, M-4/M-16, and shotgun based on agency long gun use.)  Ultimately, this training program helps prepare LEOs to survive a deadly force confrontation through competent decision making and confident gun handling skills.
