This two-day course focuses on the mechanics of marksmanship at speed with a carbine and pistol as well as transitioning between weapons systems. This course is not about tactics, although tactical application of all techniques taught will be discussed, but instead is about skill with the firearm, but instead is about skill with firearms. Your skill at shooting drives your tactics, and the ability to make a shot with precision, rapidly, and under pressure, is of paramount importance. Our goal is for every student to finish this class with a deeper understanding of how to construct their personal training in order to improve as efficiently as possible.

       Fundamental principles of marksmanship at speed

       Efficiency and consistency of weapons manipulation at speed

       Efficient and consistent transitioning between weapons systems at speed

       Creating a feedback loop for maximizing efficiency of training

GreyBeard Actual LLC is a service disabled veteran owned small business. We provide advanced training in firearms, tactics, and combatives to law enforcement, military, private security contractors, and responsible armed citizens. Our training model draws on decades of operational, competitive and instructional experience, and our sole goal is to enable our students to master their craft as quickly and efficiently as possible.


Our primary instructor, Matthew Little, is a US Army Special Forces combat veteran who has extensive law enforcement experience, including serving as the training coordinator and an operational supervisor on a major metropolitan SWAT team, and has worked as a government contractor in non-permissive environments. Additionally, Matt is a lifelong martial artist and former national level competitor. He is also ranked as a Master Class shooter with pistol and carbine by both the US Practical Shooting Association and the International Defensive Pistol Association. He has instructed foreign and US military personnel and police officers in firearms, combatives, and tactics. This instructional experience was not solely academic, as he was usually then leading his students operationally either in combat or in arguably the most violent major city in North America.


At GreyBeard Actual, LLC, our intent is not to entertain, or simply run practice sessions for our students. We view our role as coaches and our students as athletes. Our classes are intended to provide insights that our students can take back to their own training in order to shorten their own path to mastery. We want to shortcut the learning curve so that each student can avoid detours and dead ends in their training journey.
