Vickers Tactical Advanced Handgun Marksmanship Course
SECOND CLASS SESSION ANNOUNCEMENT: Since the initially offered class filled within two days, Larry has offered to conduct a second session of this challenging course. Dates will be 10/8-9/2009.
Larry Vickers, former U. S. Army Delta Force operator/weapons trainer, American Pistol Guild gunsmith and firearms industry consultant will be returning to North Texas to present his two day Advanced Handgun Marksmanship Course. Larry’s credentials are very extensive and “real world” and may be viewed on his website at: www.vickerstactical.com
While "tactical" pistol courses are available through a variety of qualified trainers, this course will focus on applying marksmanship skills in a variety of challenging drills. While it is true that there is no such thing as an "advanced gunfight", this course is NOT for the beginning shooter. Larry will be working closely with each student to maximize his ability with each marksmanship fundamental, and help the shooter achieve his true accuracy potential with the pistol at any range.
This is not a traditional tactical pistol course, but a technical skill building class. Larry will be sharing the drills and methods he has used in training 1st SFOD to develop their precision and long distance marksmanship skills. While the round count will not be as high as many students are used to, every round fired will count.
Please bring the most shootable pistol you have, as the emphasis will be on difficult marksmanship drills. Larry says, "An accurate 1911 with good sights will be a plus. It will definitely be challenging, I can promise you that - we will pull out all kinds of drills that I always liked and used for practice that normally don't get covered in a standard class."
This class will be a rare opportunity to gain a maximum training benefit from an individual who arguably possesses the best combined credentials of a world class trainer, operator, industry consultant and pistolsmith extant.
This class will be an open enrollment course and TCLEOSE credit will be available for Texas law enforcement personnel.
