Instructor: Mike Clark- VirTra/Victory First
The VirTra Red Dot Transition and Sustainment program was written in conjunction with Matt Jacques from Victory First. It is designed to take officers with little to no experience with the pistol mounted red dot optic and equip them with the necessary skills to successfully transition from traditional Iron sights to a pistol mounted red dot optic. The course will be conducted in the VirTra simulator and on a live fire range. Additionally, the course provides sustainment material to help officers to continue building the skill set necessary for proper presentation of the pistol.
The sustainment package was designed to give officers specific drills that can be conducted in the simulator pre or post daily briefings or as a supplement to range qualification days. It takes an in depth look at some the more popular red dot optics on the market today but is not intended as an all-encompassing recommendation as to what optics to choose or avoid. Please refer to your agency’s Authorized Equipment List for guidance on choosing a red dot optic for use on your service pistol.
The course is certified by the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST) and meets POST requirements in 38 States. It contains a pre-test, lecture post-test and range drills and exemplifies VirTra’s dedication to our Teach, Train, Test, Sustain philosophy.
