Amtac Shooting

This course has made me a smarter and more aware fighter. This translates to a more efficient instructor for my students and my family is safer with this level of training. The realism of the scenario-based training in this course will elevate your situational awareness, preparedness, and highlight what you need to do moving forward. It certainly did for me. Thank you, Bill.
