Sig Sauer Pistol Mounted Optics Instructors Course

Course length

About the course

The Pistol Mounted Optic concept is not new. However, in the past decade technology has enhanced the reliability and durability of the handgun mounted optic for duty and self-defense purposes. Teaching new students to use the Pistol Mounted Optic (PMO) presents unique challenges. For example, many students have trouble simply acquiring the red dot with the dominant or non-dominant hand and while firing multiple shots. Performance-based training techniques will be used throughout this Instructor level course to get maximum performance from the students.
