COURSE DESCRIPTION: 20 / 30 Hour Female Tactical Pistol / Rifle Course
Pistol / rifle shooting skills will be honed and tested throughout this course by participating in both live fire and simunition exercises which are challenging and stressful in nature in an all female environment. Participants will walk away with added confidence in their shooting abilities as well as their ability to perform under pressure in high stress situations. Not only is this a great opportunity to improve those skills that are critical to officer survival but a great way to network with other area female law enforcement officers. Although students can sign up for just the pistol course if desired but are recommended to attend the third day tactical rifle portion as well.
Areas of emphasis of the Female Pistol Rifle Class for Law Enforcement:
- Equipment considerations
- Firearm manipulation
- Reloading / Malfunction clearing
- Natural Point of aim (rifle & pistol)
- Multiple target acquisition
- Managing stress
- Movement shooting
- Threat identification

- Various shooting positions applicable to patrol work
- Correctly working cover and identifying options in different environments
