Federal Air Marshal Tactical Pistol Course (old version)


This is the old pistol qualification course for the Federal Air Marshals. It is a challenging course with the time constraints placed on the shooter, and will definitely put pressure on the shooter.

This course is to be shot with no warmup on the FBI QIT target (old bowling pin style), but any slightly recessed silhouette can be used as well. The course is shot from 7 yards.
