“Training with MCTA has been a life-changing experience. This organization exudes professionalism and integrity, while demonstrating an uncanny level of dedication to their clients. They work with you, and adapt their unique methodology to suit your operational and training demands. If they cannot make you a better shooter, no one can. The skills, knowledge, and insight that they have to offer cannot be found anywhere else. Because of what I have learned from MCTA, I now have the ability and the confidence to go where I could not go, and do what I could not do before”.
“The classes at MCTA are AWESOME!! Three years ago when I first came, we started with the basic safety and function of the weapon. We went step by step covering everything. We went from tactical reloading to emergency reloading. As the classes progressed we learned the proper stance and grip for the weapon. We also learned the alterative shooting grip, the pros and cons of it, and when to employ it. As we continued we learned shooting, moving and how to properly used cover. We also learned how to shoot, move and communicate as a team. We learned how to reload as we were moving and how to cover someone if they were reloading. We covered alterative shooting positions as well, because you will not always be in the perfect position or textbook stances to take your shot. The classes at MCTA are amazing. You not only learn the proper way to shoot, but how to work the weapon. From shooting with the proper stance to running and gunning to mid range shooting, MCTA has you covered, not matter what you want to learn”.
