DESCRIPTION:

The Dot Life is the perfect class for those that are new to running a slide mounted Red-Dot Optic (RDO) on their handgun or for those familiar with the setup but looking to improve their performance with the pairing.

In an industry filled with “Red Dot Classes” that are simply the run of the mill handgun class with everyone shooting red-dot-equipped handguns, The Dot Life is in a category all its own.

The course is designed to help students hone their skills and learn new tips and techniques to get the most out of their equipment.  Students and cadre will work together to address the common roadblocks many shooters encounter when making the transition from iron sights to a red-dot equipped handgun in a safe, fun, and educational environment.

With the goal of helping shooters become more confident and capable with the defensive handgun setup, it is also endorsed as a precursor class to the incredible red-dot-specific classes offered by our friend, skilled shooter, and training affiliate Scott Jedlinski of Modern Samurai Project.

The Dot Life

This class is a must for anyone who is serious about using a rds as the primary sight on a pistol. I have been using iron sights on my service pistols for more than 30 years, this class has given me a new found respect for the red dot and an excellent foundation to make the transition more efficient . MDFI does an excellent job of vetting students and range safety. Be assured you can concentrate on yourself and your learning experience and not be worried about other shooters.

You want to run a red dot on your pistol? Start here!

Absolutely incredible class all the way around. I left with way more confidence and gained knowledge that I will use for life. Highly recommend to anyone using a red dot, not matter their level of experience.

 by Ryan on The Dot Life

Fantastic curriculum and well paced. These guys make training fun and educational. I have a long way to go to become the shooter I aspire to be. I'm excited to continue training with MDFI.

 by Paul on The Dot Life

another top-notch class! well constructed and well taught. Challenging and eye-opening. This class is not just for those that are new to the dot, it will push you to flat out be better manipulating it.

 by Steve on The Dot Life

This course is great for all levels of red dot sight (RDS) shooters, and I already want to take it again. The teaching staff were great, as always, and lived up to my already high expectations from other MDFI classes. I have yet to come away anything but impressed and realizing how much more I need to train. This course took me from a total dot newbie to learning some really key RDS facts, fundamentals, and skills that I can train with dry fire at home and live fire at the range. The learning curve of going from long time iron sight use to a dot seemed daunting, but this course cut it down to size very quickly.
