Intermediate Firearm Training Course


The Intro to Red Dot Sighted Pistol course is designed for people who want to learn the basics of shooting with a Red Dot Sight (RDS). Students will learn the correct way to use a red dot sighted pistol through efficient body structure and a variety of dry and live fire techniques and drills. We highly recommend the completion of at least Handgun Level 1 before attendance.

Red Dot Sighted Pistol Learning Objectives:
  • Pros and Cons of various RDS
  • Zeroing the RDS
  • Shooting Fundamentals with an RDS
  • Building a proper presentation
  • Shooting single and multiple targets

88 Tactical recruits and retains the industry’s most experienced instructor cadre from the special operations military, law enforcement, and fire and rescue – many of whom continue to serve today. All 88 Tactical training courses are built on the core concept of Reality Behavior-Based Conditioning© (RBBC).

RBBC has developed from this maxim: “the study of behavior is as important as the study of tactics.” 88 Tactical courses condition an appropriate crisis response that maximizes performance while working with, instead of against, a person’s survival-oriented instincts and intuitions.
