This is the experience for you then. Based in the UK, this one day Special Forces Experience is designed for individuals or up to 4 participants. You will taught the safety aspects and marksmanship principles before getting your hands on AK74's, M16's and various other weapons.

For those of you who are unaware of the UK Firearms regulations you cannot fire 9mm pistols in the UK. STS offer two packages where you can learn all about Pistol handling and become proficient and safe with the weapons.
The first is a one-day course based in the UK and is designed to develop the skills of those who wish to learn how to use a pistol as a primary firearm. We cover all the safety aspects, workings of the weapon, function tests and correct grip and hold before shooting on a range with high powered BB Glock 17 and SIG 226 pistols out to 15m. This will give you a good insight to all pistol techniques and a platform to build on.
The second course we offer is a full-bore 9mm pistol shooting course in Europe. I will arrange to take you either individually or as a group to Europe on an all-inclusive trip. The participants will have sole occupancy of a range to undertake this course with an array of pistols and myself instructing you for the whole duration.
If required you will travel to an airport the night before and stay in a hotel with all meals provided. If no hotel is required as we try to get decent timings for your flight, you will travel down on the date of departure to park your car at the airport car park. You will then check in and proceed to the priority lounge and relax. On arrival you will be met and taken to a five bedroom house where you will have sole occupancy, all your meals, drinks and needs will be met.
Pistol shooting is an art on its own. It takes time and effort to be able to engage targets out to 50m using the correct techniques with both your strong and weak arm. One handed pistol is essential and has to be practiced. You will practice these skills and this will reduce your reaction time, allow you to shoot faster with a higher degree of accuracy and increase your confidence with your weapon. I will endevor to get you to the ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) pistol firearms standard with the time allocated and show you that with good instruction and coaching you can in a very short time become proficient safe and accurate with a pistol.
Most expeditions to Polar regions ( which Svalbard have approved our course ) and to countries around the world where you would want to be armed for your own protection require you to demonstrate you are safe and competent before issuing a firearms for that trip. The Police in various counties ask for a certificate of competency with firearms before issuing you a license or renewing one.
STS Firearms Competency Course and certificate are recognised by a number of organisations and Police forces in the UK.
The aim of this course is to introduce new clients to firearms and to refresh those who may be returning to the sport to ensure a level of competence. This course aims to take clients through the relevant safe handling and safe shooting requirements to meet the standards relating to public safety and the Police.
The course combines a training room based input with practical experience on the range with various weapon systems.
Over the years we have worked with a large number of individuals who are going on expeditions, renewing or trying to obtain a firearms license and all of them have returned home after the course better informed, safer and more knowledgeable about all aspects of firearms handling.
