This class presupposes an Agency has done their testing and evaluation of current technology, and selected pistol RDS that will be approved or issued. (PDFT is available for consultation if those choices have not been made. We do not endorse a specific make/model of RDS but can help you drill down on pros and cons of various models and how they may be configured).

Organized to help officers learn the efficient and effective way to utilize this tool, officers will avoid the common issues encountered when agencies employ this sighting system.

Students will zero their RDS, with explanations of the benefits of a zero, in real terms, at various distances. Dot size, expressed in MOA, will be thoroughly explained. RDS relationship to iron sights will be discussed. Myths regarding iron sight vs RDS qualifications will be dispelled.

Alternate aiming techniques will be drilled. Weapons manipulations (loading/unloading, malfunctions) will be practiced.

If the venue permits, an RDS night shoot will be conducted.

RDS benefits to veteran officers will be discussed. Advantages of RDS at distance will be discussed, demonstrated, and drilled.

Taking advantage of the intuitive “target/threat focused” benefit of the RDS, students will undergo a structured series of drills and exercises that will allow rapid skill acquisition, confidence, and increased proficiency with their duty handguns. Before and after skill tests will be conducted.

Required Equipment:

  • Duty Pistol equipped with RDS
  • 3 Magazines
  • Holster that accomodates the RDS and weapon-mounted white light
  • Ball cap
  • Eye protection
  • Hand-held light
  • 500 rounds of ammunition
