Red Dot Pistol Concepts | Brian Hill — The Complete Combatant | Spokane Rifle Club Indoor Range
Kaery Concealed is honored to again host Mr. Brian Hill from The Complete Combatant. Mr. Brian will be in Spokane to teach two separate classes in September 2023. September 7th and 8th is The Inner Game of Shooting and September 9th and 10th is Red Dot Essentials. Mr. Brian was in Spokane to teach his Deliberate Coaching course in September 2022 to a sold out class of 20 students.
Red Dot Essentials Course Description From The Complete Combatant Website:
The way we aim our firearm is an area that sees constant improvement. Over a decade ago rifle optics went through significant changes with the introduction of red dot sights. These sights offered a tremendous advantage in speed, accuracy, and application. Unfortunately, back then, optics for pistols were not as easy to set up or robust enough for every day use.
This class will focus on the draw to first-round hits from concealment unless you have an open rig. We will work on proximal extension relative to the attacker, using the red dot to the most significant advantage at different distances, multiple hand positions that the armed citizen encounters during a fight, and stacking complex cognitive tasks under pressure. Biomechanics of movement and the neuroscience of the decisional process and training methodologies will be explored. If you shoot competitively or carry a pistol for personal protection you will benefit from this class.
Pistol optic sights offer a number of advantages for the pistol shooter. The most important is “target focus” which allows the shooter to clearly see the target with a red dot superimposed on it. Secondly, the red dot is simpler to understand. With the red dot you are only “placing a dot” on the target. With iron sights you have three planes of focus which is obviously not as simple when compared. Next, you have the ease when dealing with certain vision issues during shooting and it is found to be easier when dealing with difficult positions. Last, is the ability to “track” in recoil and transitions. That bright red paintbrush of the red dot optic is hard to miss.
All of these factors are significant advantages for the shooter but it requires an understanding of the red dot sighting system.
This 2 day class will prepare you to get the most out of the red dot/pistol optic sights and introduce you to a training methodology that will allow you to take advantage of these benefits.
This class will also help avoid time consuming mistakes in your training while learning the use of red dots.
The following subjects will be covered:
Finding the dot during the draw
Repeatable draws and reference points
Target focus and using stereoscopic vision
Zeros/Holdovers at different distances
Ammo makes a difference
Precision and speed
Proper settings for the brightness of the red dot sight
Wet optics and downed optic drills
Positional shooting advantages
Tracking in recoil and transitions
Interpreting and processing the information available
This class will require you to have safe gun handling skills
You will be “presenting” from the holster. You need to have taken at least one professional class that focused on “the draw” in the class curriculum.
You need to be able to follow directions from our coaches
You need to have a basic understanding of your firearm and your red dot sighting system/pistol optic..
This is NOT a class for the newer shooter. This is a class for shooters that are moving towards, exploring or committing to pistol optics.
$475 per person
$25 range fee per day per person (collected the first day of class)
