AK 47


This course is designed for the shooter looking to get training on night vision and thermal optic shooting at night.  With the growing interest in commercial night vision, state laws that now allow hunting at night, law enforcement deployment, security contractor deployment and night operations photography, STA wanted to offer an educational course in how to properly use these systems.  The cost of commercial thermal and night vision has come down to affordable pricing and availability and STA Training Group offers the best night operations shooting and observation package available.  This is designed around the precision rifle system (out to 600 yards) with a limited exposure to carbine engagements from 150 yards and in. STA Training Group has a very close working relationship with NIVISYS night vision and thermal optics providing all of the required equipment for the course.  This is a night time only course and limited to 8 shooters.

Course Outline:
-Day zero on weapons
