AATS - Long Range Handgun

Logo Art

This class is designed to challenge students’ abilities outside their close combat comfort zone and extend the effective range of their handgun skills to the maximum.

Instructors focus on developing student marksmanship skills and confidence with stock and duty handguns far beyond the 20-yard range line using a variety of techniques. This course is extremely well suited for hunters, competitors, and defensive shooters who seek to achieve carbine-like performance from a handgun.

A one word summary for folks who are short on time with a long list of task – “Impressive”

I just returned from a condensed one week pistol/rifle course at the Sig Sauer Academy.  I am a busy guy and don’t have a lot of time to focus on any one task or subject.  I actually debated, rather or not I had five days to devote to the attendance of the Sig Academy.  In retrospect, it was the best five days of training I have ever received………..and this said with an extensive career with the US Military, with the great majority in Special Operations.

The instruction was world class and delivered by true professionals, they were extremely knowledgeable, capable and skilled in the science of firearms and the art of teaching.  The weapon drills and firing courses where uniquely developed for my small group; our assigned instructors where able to quickly evaluate our level of proficiency, build a program of instruction, and implement a professional training plan.

I left the course not only as a better shot, but also, a quicker, more accurate and efficient shooter.  I also acquired a plethora of tips, tactics and information to pass on to my students that are beginning their careers as Special Operators.
