Although our recent live fire was cut short due to tornadoes and hail (literally), Texas State Militia Houston Unit members still gained a lot from the firearms training.
New members are taught from basic marksmanship principles, through transitioning, support side firing, and moving and shooting techniques.
As you can tell, our trainings are extremely well organized and safety conscious. No member may enter the firing line, load their weapon, or fire until tower clears them.
Some highlights from our recent live firearms training.
Below are some videos that are rarely release of the kind of firearms training we do here at TSM. Because safety is the most important aspect of any of our trainings, every shooter has dedicated range safety officers at their side to monitor and teach firearms safety to every member.
The types of firearms trainings we practice here at TSM are rapid fire, moving and shooting, accuracy, and working as a team to lay down covering fire. Our members are encouraged to take their time with their shots until they develop their skills. “Slow is smooth, smooth is fast” is a moniker that is repeated often.
We organize our live-fire trainings to emulate military range procedures and classes.
Although our members may appear like they have been doing this their whole live, most didn’t start out the way when they entered. We take relatively inexperienced shooters and help them develop safe and accurate shooting skills. Because they have trained, they will be confident when the time comes. Come join us and be ready.
