R3 309A Pistol Red Dot (RDS) Instructor Course
Course Number: R3 309A
To provide students with the information, techniques, and hands-on experience needed to effectively use a handgun equipped with a red dot sight (RDS). This course will train students in the nomenclature, function, and use of handguns equipped with a red dot sight (RDS). This course will also prepare the students to teach their own students the information and techniques and prepare them to carry an RDS pistol in the course of their duties.
Modern red dot pistol sights provided law enforcement with distinct advantages benefitting officers and the public compared to traditional iron sights. Red dot sight equipped pistols allow for a continual threat focus which facilitates better threat identification and management. The precise dot reticle facilitates better accuracy, eliminates many sight alignment issues, and can provide a significant improvement in low light speed and accuracy. As human eyes age, they have difficulty focusing on iron sights, a pistol mounted red dot sight has the ability to provide a way to maintain effectiveness and accuracy through that aging process.
