FAST is designed upon the core principles of marksmanship and proficient gun handling and is the prerequisite for the tactical courses offered at THE SITE.

By focusing on the fundamentals, FAST can be utilized by the experienced shooter as a means to sharpen existing skill sets and for the unfamiliar, it is an excellent vehicle in which to habituate proven gun handling techniques and lay the foundation for future success.

The first part of the course has a heavy emphasis on all aspects of operating a firearm under stress. Beginning with the simple and progressing to the complex.

Once a solid foundation is built, the remainder of the course is spent instilling those fundamentals by shooting deliberately designed isolation drills.
