Officer Reviews:

-“ I now have taken Scott’s class twice and would take it a third time. I learned just as much the second go round if not more. He has a way of taking what you already think you know about shooting, improving it, and at the same time teaching you how to apply it to a whole new sighting system (red dot optics). Scott is a great guy, very humble, and actually takes time during his class to give each shooter some one on one instruction if necessary. I not only learned how to shoot the dot more efficiently but my irons improved ten-fold by using his techniques.”

I took Scott “Jedi” Jedlinski ‘s Red Dot Pistol instructor course in November 2019. Jedi’s course is extremely thorough and focused on the proper applications of his well tested techniques of “finding the dot”.  I am relatively new to the dot and have been evaluating the RMS for our departments future use. Jedi’s course definitely improved my speed of getting on target and  reacquiring the dot for follow on shots. His techniques for finding the dot and teaching others were easy to understand and implement.

I spent the last few days attending Modern Samurai Project Red Dot Pistol Instructor. Outstanding class that quickly got down into the finer nuances of mechanics, technique and efficiency when running an MRDS pistol & instructing shooters with MRDS equipped pistols. Great knowledge bombs were dropped. This class provided me with a CRITICAL piece that I was missing from my MRDS puzzle. THAT ALONE was worth the price of admission.
