Reactive Shooting Instructor Training Program (RSITP)

Up one level

The Reactive Shooting Instructor Training Program (RSITP) is a one week program designed to enable new and experienced field instructors to develop and teach reactive shooting techniques.  Reactive shooting is the shooter’s ability, under stress, to control the weapon to achieve maximum tactical accuracy and speed while quickly clearing any malfunction and to accomplish fast reloading.  This builds shooter confidence and instills an understanding of what is realistically possible with the weapon.  Classes are limited to twenty-four students.
