C8 Operator/Instructor &  Police Tactical Rifle Marksmanship Course [PTRM] Developing Tactical Handling & Marksmanship Skills

 

Colt Canada and MilCun continue to team together to offer you a unique opportunity to train instructors and tactical officers in weapon handling skills and marksmanship. The course focuses on the Colt Canada Carbines and the practical skills to employ them accurately and reliably in the world of law enforcement.

 

Location: MilCun Marksmanship Complex (4 days)

 

Prerequisites: For C8A2 Operator portion, students will require Colt Canada equipment. If your agency does not have such equipment, let us know and we can make the appropriate equipment available. For the Tactical Marksmanship portion, students must have completed the Operator course for the weapon they intend to use during the course. Each student is required to bring 750 rounds of 5.56x45mm ammunition.

 

Ammunition to be used is strictly police service ammunition (FED, WIN, REM, AMERICAN EAGLE, etc.), no ammunition such as Norinco or Military Surplus will be allowed on the course as we have found it to be very problematic and sometimes unreliable during operation/training exercises.
