MSG Rob Mango, USAR Service Pistol Team Coach and SSO (SYSTEMS SUPPORT OFFICER) at TSC (TRAINING SUPPORT CENTER), TECOM, Kaneohe Bay, Marine Corps Base Hawaii, shares the following training presentation.
I made this POI when I was the Chief Marksmanship Instructor for USMC base Hawaii. The notes are my own words and are very specific and correct. Since I made this, I’ve taught it to 8-10 Squad Designated Marksman courses from 2007-2010. The success of my students in theatre was so apparent that TECOM has made most verbiage of my (this) class USMC doctrine. I recommend you play the slideshow on one computer (for animation) and follow along with the notes on another or a printout. I would take the 15-20 minutes to review my wording and pay attention to detail while learning it. Please excuse any grammar mistakes.
I send this to you all because It literally took me 8 yrs (of winning) until the “light” turned on for me, in the specific fundamental of aiming. I hope it helps one of you.
I realize some topics in the POI could be considered “theory”. I am not perfect but I strive for excellence. If you find something questionable, please feel free to tell me about it. I always want to improve my repertoire.
