Trijicon Inc., maker of long gun and handgun sighting systems, has announced that it will present an educational session on reflex optics for law enforcement officers at the 2017 Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show. The 2017 SHOT Show is scheduled for January 17-20 in Las Vegas, NV.
This 90-minute-long class on reflex optics is part of the Law Enforcement Education Program (LEEP) sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and POLICE Magazine. It will cover the practical use of reflex sights on rifles, shotguns, and handguns, how they work, and the advantages they offer in terms of tactical effectiveness, enhanced officer safety, and reduced officer and/or agency liability.
The class will be led by Frank Martello, assistant manager of law enforcement programs for Trijicon. As a retired Marine Corps infantry officer first sergeant with the Stafford County (VA) Sheriff’s Office, Martello has more than 40 years of tactical operations training and small arms experience.
LEEP registration fee is $25, which admits officers to all LEEP classes.
