CGS’s clients learn the fundamentals of marksmanship and weapons manipulation through a progressive platform in which shooting drills increase in complexity upon successful completion of prior tasks. Clients become proficient in fundamental skills including loading, unloading, malfunction procedures, facing movements, use of cover and barricades, fire and movement, and communication between shooting partners.
Our combat-experienced instructors further enhance clients’ tactical shooting skills by introducing common scenarios encountered in an armed engagement.
