I’m from Leupold and I’m here to help.Hey guys, I think I have figured it out.
He's not wrong, but hes about 20 years too late with a totally straight face. 7 yard zero, introduction to the mil dot reticle and holds - this can be only come from one place in the entire universe.
He's from Leupold.
I posted and will be clarifying point #1 of the following:
I am assuming that you reviewed our website. Based on this assumption, I will provide the reasons that we utilize airsoft.
1. In order to provide training with a real handgun (at least in the state of Texas) you have to be licensed. Becoming a licensed firearms instructor is not the easiest thing to do. This state requirement can be circumvented by using airsoft guns.
2. Some training schools utilize Simunitions in order to provide real-time feedback in a safe environment. I have done this in the past. However, the use of Simunitions requires that you take a class which costs, you have to have insurance which is exhorbitant (IF any companies will insure your training company). These costs add up making classes not necessarily as profitable as is necessary to continue to run courses. The utilization of airsoft allows a very close result as with simunitions, or UTM, with a miniscule fraction of the cost.
3. The use of airsoft provides the student with right now, real-time feedback as to whether a TTP works or not. It's easy to say things like, "My last instructor told me to stand in the open and lay down suppressive fire no matter what." When students do this and then are engaged with airsoft (simunitions and or UTM), they learn, on their own, from the discomfort of the impacts of the training rounds, that the TTP that they're employing does not work.
The same can be said for testing and finding that one's TTP does work.
The Take Away here is that airsoft and like training munitions allow for a safer training environment where you can test your personal or team TTPs/SOPs in a safe environment.
CLARIFICATION / LTC REQUIREMENTS
1. There are state requirements in order to become a "License To Carry" instructor and to teach the "LTC" course.
2. Requirements found on the following website: https://pointblankchl.com/how-to-become-a-texas-ltc-instructor/.
3. I do not teach LTC courses.
STATE OF TEXAS REQUIREMENTS TO TEACH A FIREARMS COURSE
1. There is no licensing requirement in the state of Texas to teach students how to shoot a firearm.
WITHIN REGULATIONS AND LICENSING REQUIREMENTS
1. As I was questioned regarding my legal status to teach students how to utilize a firearm, I am simply responding and providing clarification to that query.
2. As there is no state regulation nor licensing requirement to teach students how to utilize a firearm, I am within state compliance when I provide instruction to students.
I have several qualifications to include the NRA Basic Pistol Instructor.
Kreiger - You've got it all wrong. Start at point blank, gun sideways for the modern gangster sight in, then back up to 7 yards with Tannerite.
You misunderstood, he was a security contractor in the middle east of the mid-west in the largest shopping mall in the western hemisphere.You were a security contractor on Baghdad, Iraq!?
Like, wow. That's my dream job! What company did you work for? What section did you work for?
Did you normally work in Annex 1 or Annex 2?
Do tell! I'm genuinely curious because that career path is soooooo interesting to me!
You're so operator.
If this lesson is really for John Q Redneck that just bought a tasco 6-24 mil-dot and wants to improve on his marksmenship and/or his hunting....
Then why are all the thread tags operator as fuck tags? Why not tag the thread with keywords such as "the basics", "designated marksmen", or "long range hunting".
Because farmer Fred ain't going to be searching for #greenberet, #sniper, or #pewpewlife to improve his hunting skills.
Oh boy you left yourself open with that one.CREDIBILITY
In the professional realm, personnel offering information often provide their backgrounds and their resume. Doctors, dentists, attorneys or like professionals, often hang their degrees, licenses and even civic awards on the walls of their offices, etc.
These professionals display their degrees, licenses, awards, etc., in order to immediately establish credibility.
In like manner, I provided a bio in order to establish credibility with the readers of this series.
It is my intent to demonstrate that I have a proficiency in Long Range Precision Marksmanship. This proficiency is based on my service as a Special Forces Soldier and a contractor that has attended multiple Long Range Precision Marksmanship courses and that has deployed numerous times as either a military sniper or a designated defensive marksman.
In the instructor training courses that I have attended (DoD, DoS, NRA) I was instructed to provide my bio to those in attendance for the exact same reasons that I listed above - credibility.
WHO IS SEARCHING FOR WHAT AND HOW.
I appreciate you having shared this thought:
"Because farmer Fred ain't going to be searching for #greenberet, #sniper, or #pewpewlife to improve his hunting skills."
I would venture to state the exact opposite.
I would think that individuals looking for the basics of TTPs that employ MIL dot reticles would certainly seek out and look for posts written by a (current or former) Special Forces Soldier and that they would expect him to be expert in this realm and be able to provide instruction in this realm...
Having stated all of this, if you will provide a list of hashtags that you think are more appropriate than the ones that I selected, I will most certainly consider adding them to this series.
If you are what you say I think a lot of folks here would enjoy and learn from you.
Your current topic is simply dated and too basic to be of much if any interest. The 7 yard issue is foolish to even the most inexperienced folks on this site.
If you come with experience, current info of high quality you could be an asset to this site and a popular poster.
Don’t forget your audience. Lot of very experienced operators here. Lot of enthused and very sharp amateurs as well.
Quite a few folks who know nothing like me as well.
Part 3! Part 3!
You need to assign everyone callsigns.
