I trained with Don Edwards up at Ridgeline (NH) in May 2019 at the TNVC Night Vision class.

He was REALLY GOOD and one of the most down-to-earth humble folks I have ever met. Rare combination of good teacher and good people.

Pistol mounted red dot sights are becoming more common. They have been around for 20 or so years, but the technology has gotten a lot better. Increasingly, law enforcement, military, and armed citizens are adopting them for serious social purposes.

They do offer some clear advantages over iron.

But - there are some fundamentals that need to be differently executed vs. traditional irons sights - and this is where this class comes in.

Don't miss out on this opportunity!

Why train red dot pistol?

Red dot sights (RDS) give the shooter a more natural way to aim a pistol

RDS are faster on target than iron sights

RDS help improve law enforcement qualification/re-qual scores significantly, some reported as much as 25%

RDS give LEO's who don't have a carbine immediately in reach a viable option on an active shooter

RDS are superior to iron sights at night

RDS are superior to irons on moving targets

RDS can assist those with less than perfect vision.

SOCOM has quietly been using them.

RDS have taken the market by storm.

Just a few anecdotes on red dot sights that I found interesting.

Earlier this year at the Kyle Defoor pistol class in Wallingford, CT, the hat-qual winner (25 yards, 10 shots in 15 seconds, all in the black on a B8-C repair center target) shot it with a red dot pistol.

This past Monday, the top-shooter at Pat Mac's LE pistol/carbine class at Hartford Gun Club was equipped with a red dot (which was his duty gun). He even beat Pat Mac himself on the "pick your poison" drill.

Guys, red dots are not a gimmick. They are changing pistol shooting just like they've transformed carbine shooting.
