MOAC-R – a.k.a Mother of all Classes – enrollment will be limited to ensure an appropriate student-to-instructor ratio. The class utilizes steel targets to maximize training time.
Objectives will be achieved with a strong emphasis on safety.
- Cultivating the ability to solve practical and tactical marksmanship problems with trigger control and marksmanship ability.
- Understanding the “percentage goal” as it applies to the use of sights in high speed marksmanship.
- Understanding “road map” applications as they convert to durable skill in high speed marksmanship.
- Understanding “goal setting” in high speed marksmanship during saturation training.
- Cultivating the ability to score multiple fast hits at distances from near contact to 200 yards.
- Understanding the relationship of mechanical offset to high speed marksmanship.
- AR/SCAR/MCX rifle chamber in 5.56/.223 equipped sight, or a modern pistol caliber carbine (PCC) with sling and quality red dot

Ensure you wear and bring clothing appropriate for the weather. Even when shooting indoors, ranges can be cold. Dress in layers so you can remove or add them as conditions change. Jeans, BDUs, or canvas type pants are recommended. Shooting outdoors? Prepare for warm sunny conditions and overcast cool conditions. Bring sunscreen, lip balm and insect repellent. Bring a baseball cap, wide-brimmed hat or stocking cap as appropriate. No sandals, tank tops, or other sleeveless shirts permitted.
You should bring water to the range. Make it easy for you to hydrate yourself during the day. It’s a good idea to pack a few of protein or power bar snacks.
