Tactical Application of Practical Shooting (TAPS)
TMACS trains adaptive thinkers who are able to handle the challenges of full spectrum operations in an era of persistent conflict. To meet this requirement, TMACS INC delivers a comprehensive, systematic, progressive Train-the-Trainer shooting program focused on fundamental mastery. The approach to instruction is through coaching and mentorship and both demonstrates and transfers a training method that is safe, effective, combat relevant, and encourages a continuous thought process that demands accountability.
Training is conducted on the range and focuses on advanced refinement of the basic fundamentals of marksmanship as applied to the pistol. Utilizing a building block learning model, TAPS combines the pressures and dynamics of competitive shooting and tactical application. While the course of instruction is on the firing range, the TAPS training approach also translates into training venues outside the range.
The 2-day course offering includes the following:
Lecture on proper weapons handling and safety.
Conduct a diagnostic course of fire.
Refresh the fundamentals and grouping exercises .
Conduct individual and collective complex courses of fire which are ambiguous in nature to encourage quick thinking and decisive action.
Mindset and focal cognition drills.
Development of tailor-made “Standards” courses of fire.
Other topics covered and practiced are; grouping exercises with secondary weapon systems, target discrimination, use of barricades, movement into position, immediate action drills, magazine changes, multiple target engagements and shooting on the move.
Escalation of training and intensity will vary depending on the number of students and their skill level through the core of the course will always remain the same. We will tailor the training to the individual as well as the group.
