About the event
Pistol Mounted Optics (PMO) aren't coming, they are HERE and have quickly gained popularity. Making the switch from iron sights to PMOs doesn't have to be a mystery and this course covers successfully making that transition. After covering what does and doesn’t change along with some optic-centric issues in the classroom, we will be on the range. Topics include:
- Acquiring the dot from the ready and the holster
- Installing & maintaining the optic
- Broken & blocked optics
- Shooting both eyes open
- Shifting one’s visual attention, and
- Zeroing the pistol.
- As in the norm for a Cougar Mountain Solutions (CMS) course, judgment & decision making will be addressed as well.
Gunsite/Rangemaster/Thunder Ranch/ITTS/PRI, IDPA/USPSA rating, or defensive handgun class that includes holster work/reloads/stoppages as well as an understanding of applying the 4 Safety Rules practically while working around your firearm while not hazarding your neighbor.
What to Bring
- Note taking materials
- A pistol with an optic (loaners MAY be available with enough notice)
- Appropriate belt
- Appropriate holster & mag pouches,
- 3 mags
- 150 rounds
- Extra battery & tool to change it

- Please bring your lunch, scooby snacks, caffeine, and – of course – water. We will break but the less time is devoted to lunch, the more time we can spend on your dot.
