Recap of the August 2018 Southeastern Gunfighters Congress with Jared Reston

GTI's Advanced Sniper Course October 1st - 4th

GTI's Advanced Sniper Course With High Angle Shooting

The Government Training Institute Advanced Sniper Course is designed for the trained military or law enforcement sniper who has already been certified as a sniper with a minimum 40 Hour course. Our four-day course starts with a review of the fundamentals, but rapidly moves to more advanced techniques of the trade. There will be more demanding courses of fire with daily qualifications and challenging exercises to make each student push themselves to a new level. During the course, the students will take what they learn in our classroom and apply it on our ranges with life fire, as well as, movement qualifications in woodland and urban environments. Our stalk lanes will challenge even the best of the sniper fieldcraft professionals. GTI's top notch facility allows for our sniper students to engage targets from multiple floors and roof of a 9 story building at unknown distances ranging from 20 to 750 yards.

This Little Light Of Mine
