1 Weapons Orientation Our goal is to provide students with instructional guidelines for safe handling and operations of a firearm. To familiarize you with the safety aspect of the weapon and a live fire range.
2 Upon Completion Students shall be able to identify weapon and range safety rules. Demonstrate how to draw / holster the weapon. Demonstrate proper loading/unloading techniques. Demonstrate proper magazine changes. Demonstrate proper grip technique. Demonstrate how to clear weapon malfunctions. Demonstrate verbal definitions. Pass both written /weapon qualification test.
3 SAFETY!!! No personal weapons, or live ammo in any classroom. Muzzles will always be pointed in a safe direction. Your finger will be indexed until you are ready to shoot.
4 SAFETY!!! You will always verify your target and what is behind it. Have a comprehensive knowledge of how your weapon operates. Ensure your ammo matches your weapon.
5 SAFETY!!! Never go forward of the firing line until instructed to do so. Never pick up anything from the ground, until instructed to do so. Movement on the range is controlled by the instructor.
6 SAFETY!!! Alcohol/drugs are prohibited. You do not feel well, inform the instructor.
7 SAFETY!!!!!!!!!!! Shoot only professional targets not cans or glass objects. If you brought trash to the range take it with you. The burn barrel is for wood /paper items only. Brass shall be picked up, placed in a container. Only Departmental staff are allowed on the range.
8 SAFETY!!!!!!!!!!! Wearing jeans, flip flops, sandals, shorts are prohibited. Eye and ear protection are required at all times. Drive on the range in a professional manner. Instructor shall give commands on when to load, unload, and dry fire Ammo will be carried in magazines, pockets, or fanny packs.
9 SAFETY!!!!!!!!!! No horseplay at all allowed on the range. You are prohibited from stepping over to assist another shooter. All shooters shall yell cease fire when they hear it and immediately holster their weapon.
10 SAFETY!!!!!!!!!! Shooter experiencing a squib load/fire shall raise their non-shooting hand and keep the weapon pointed down range for up to30 seconds or when the instructors gives you assistance. Any questions? At this time please sign and date your safety rules and return to the instructor.
11 4 Step Draw The weapon and magazine shall always be snapped in. Thumb breaks the holster snap, as your hand grips the weapon while it is still in the holster, your index finger is along the outside of the holster. Command is called thumb, grip index. Pull the weapon straight up, rotate so muzzle is parallel to the ground and pointing at the target. You are still indexed.
12 4 Step Draw As the weapon is being extended forward in front of your body the support hand meets to form a two handed grip, you are still indexed at this point and accessing the situation. When the weapon and hands become fully extended, you are still indexed until you have made the determination what action you need to take.
13 The Draw!!!!!!!!!! Constantly have a mental command that tells you thumb, grip, index, access, take action. You index out, and you index in. Refrain from bowling the weapon or fly fishing the weapon out of the holster. Don/t be fast, be safe fast and smooth will come with always performing a good presentation.
14 Re-holstering is done reluctantly after you have scanned. You bring the weapon back to the center of the body with two hands you are still indexed. You holster the weapon with one hand, still indexing. The support hand stays on the body, the strong hand holsters the weapon. Once in the holster snap it in, push, pull, sweep the magazine.
15 Loading Muzzle pointing in a safe direction, with finger indexed. Support hand pulls the slide to the rear, strong thumb locks the slide. Visually and Physically inspects the weapon. Insert a magazine. Hand over pull and release slide chambering a round still indexed. Holster the weapon and snap it in. Push, pull and sweep.
16 Unloading Muzzle in a safe direction, finger indexed, remove the magazine. Pull the slide to the rear, lock the slide to the rear. Visually and Physically inspect the weapon. Hand over pull and release the slide, holster or secure the weapon. Pick up live round that was ejected. At no time does your finger ever touch the trigger.
17 Magazine Changes Admin load, Tactical Load, and Speed Load. Admin the weapon never leaves the holster Tactical the magazine is retained, never falls to the ground and you are always indexed. Speed load falls to the ground, you are indexed, and maintain muzzle discipline at all times
18 Proper Grip Techniques Controls muzzle flip, reduces recoil, allows for better control of the weapon. Diminishes weapon malfunctions Prevents injury from slide movement. Allows for good shot placement on a double tap. Increases accuracy and improved marksmanship skills
19 Weapon Malfunctions Failure to feed/stovepipe Tap the magazine, Rack the slide as you Roll the weapon to the right to dislodge the casing, release the slide, access the situation, take appropriate action. Double feed Rip the magazine out allow it to fall to the ground, work the slide, insert a magazine, chamber a round, access the situation, take appropriate action. Always indexing and maintain muzzle discipline.
20 Marksmanship Fundamentals Grip, Stance, Sight Alignment, Sight Picture, Breathing, Trigger control, Follow Through. They are the same for any weapon you shoot. They are the same for low light and adverse light conditions. All 7 must be performed for each shot. The shot fails to hit the target, one of your 7 are out of sync.
21 Definitions Indexing – Your trigger finger is always along the slide. The finger does not touch the trigger until you can justify your action and taking the shot. Press Check – Moving the slide to the rear slightly to see if there is a round in the chamber. Interview Stance – Slightly bladed, gives you stability, reaction time, and protects the weapon.
22 Definitions Scan – Look all around before you holster the weapon. Administrative Loading – Is conducted while the weapon is still in the holster. Tac Load – Never falls to the ground, magazine is retained.
23 Definitions Speed Load always fall to the ground, indexed and maintain muzzle discipline. Press – movement of the trigger to the rear in a smooth uninterrupted motion. Trigger Reset - After the shot, the shooter releases the trigger slowly until he/she feels the reset, allowing for the second shot to be set up. Thumb, Grip, Index, Access, Take, Press is the mental commands of the 4 step draw.
24 Definitions Strong Hand – Is the shooters primary/strongest hand. Support Hand – Is the other hand that assists the strong hand. Hand Over Technique – The shooter pulls the slide and lets it release to seat the round better.
25 Nomenclature F. Slide Lock allows you to lock the slide to the rear manually. K. Grip allows shooter to hold the grip firmly. G. Back Strap is the rear portion of the grip. J Magazine Well the opening where the magazine goes. I. Magazine drop free, inserted into magazine well. F K I J G

29 Remington 870 Shotgun The shotgun is the most widely used weapon in the Nevada Department of Corrections. The weapon may be found in every gun post. Our goal is to provide the student with professional instruction and guidance in the safe handling and operation of the weapon. We have students who have never fired a weapon before but we will provide a comprehensive knowledge of the nomenclature so they will be able to operate this weapon with confidence at any time. The weapons are provided for the safety of the institutions, officers, and inmates and safety is always a paramount factor in our weapons program.
30 Objectives Upon completion of this period of instruction you will be able to: Demonstrate proper operation of this weapon. Demonstrate a proper skip shot. Demonstrate a proper direct shot. Demonstrate how to load and unload this weapon. Identify the nomenclature of this weapon.
31 Nomenclature The Remington 870 is the Departments primary weapon. It is not to be babied in any way. This weapon is the only weapon that is armed with a popper or blank round. However if the popper is used in-properly can be lethal.
