Foundational Development — Rifle | March 05

What makes Special Operations special? It's the brilliance in the basics. Unfortunately, these are the fundamental pieces that are often avoided because they aren't "fun, entertaining or worth the investment." Likewise, and as we tell each student, if you don't have a foundation, you will never truly be a proficient shooter. Whether you are a new shooter or want a refresher in the fundamentals, we will be there to hold you accountable and refine your mechanics. What are you waiting for?
