A little over 3 weeks ago I took CSAT MTT’s Tactical Pistol Operator class and am, unfortunately, just now getting around to writing about it. It’s a fantastic class for both beginning and intermediate shooters. They have a solid plan that takes you through what you need to learn in a nice stair step approach. You start by doing seemingly simple drills but those drills build on each other into more complex ones.
CSAT MTT describes their course as:
CSAT MTT offers a one-day and two-day Tactical Pistol Operator course. Both of these classes focuses on the tactical employment of the sidearm and students will engage targets from 7 to 25 yards.The course will address the following major topics:
