Mental Mechanics of the Shot

One of the most challenging issues in firearms competency is overcoming recoil anticipation. The body's natural tendency to brace for recoil is the detriment of accurate shooting, especially under stress. It is phenomenon that affects every shooter in one form or another. This course will give the shooter the mental tools to help overcome recoil bracing under stress. The student's ability to shoot accurately under stress will be enhanced and the shooter will have knowledge of the science behind their success.

To register for the course, contact your Training Manager to assign the training to you via Acadis or complete the application under "Required Forms".
