COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Basic Law Enforcement Sniper Course is designed to take a screened and qualified sniper candidate without any prior precision rifle knowledge and turn them into a basically trained law enforcement sniper who possesses all the skills necessary to properly employ themselves in a wide variety of circumstances. From a law enforcement sniper perspective, it is very difficult to delineate what a basic skill is from an advanced skill simply because of the dynamic of a crisis site dictates the complexity of the resolution. The MDS Basic LE Sniper Course focuses on building the critical skills that a sniper needs to be effective under a wide variety of circumstances.

Let us coach you through your rifle’s circle of components and show you how to lock down all the possible variables in your system. By the time you complete this training, you’re going to have an in-depth understanding of your precision shooting system like you’ve never had before. You’ll know these components inside and out, and with that knowledge, you’ll be able to troubleshoot eventual problems you’ll experience down the road on your own.
