Mike Pannone & Pat McNamara 2-Day Pistol & Carbine Class – Dec 12-13, 2015 – CA

Mike Pannone & Pat McNamara 2-Day Pistol & Carbine Class – Dec 12-13, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA

This is a world-Class training opportunity dreamed up by two friends who have served together in both the 1st Special Forces Group and 1st SFOD-D (Delta). Their relationship thus goes back twenty years. Even after leaving military service they have taught together on military contracts. Combining Pat's Carbine TAPS class and Mike's Advanced Handgun the class will flow together and be an amazing learning opportunity for everyone attending. We have reserved two separate ranges at the Prado Olympic Shooting Park facility so both instructors will have plenty of space, barricades, steel targets, etc.

Pat McNamara

Pat McNamara (Mac) has 22 years of Special Operations experience, 13 of which were in 1st SFOD-D. He has extensive experience in hostile fire/combat zones in the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. He trains individuals at basic and advanced levels of marksmanship and combat tactics.

When he worked in the premier special missions unit, he became an impeccable marksman, shooting with accurate, lethal results and tactical effectiveness. McNamara has trained tactical applications of shooting to people of all levels of marksmanship, from varsity level soldiers, and police officers who work the streets to civilians with little to no time behind the trigger.

His military experience quickly taught him that there is more to tactical marksmanship than merely squeezing the trigger. Utilizing his years of experience, McNamara developed a training methodology that is safe, effective and combat relevant and encourages a continuous thought process. This methodology teaches how to maintain safety at all times and choose targets that force accountability, as well as provides courses covering several categories, including individual, collective, on line and standards.

While serving as his Unit's Marksmanship NCO, he developed his own marksmanship club with NRA, CMP, and USPSA affiliations. Mac ran monthly IPSC matches and ran semi annual military marksmanship championships to encourage marksmanship fundamentals and competitiveness throughout the Army.

He retired from the Army's premier hostage rescue unit as a Sergeant Major and is the author of T.A.P.S. (Tactical Application of Practical Shooting).

Mike Pannone

Mike Pannone is a former operational member of U.S. Marine Reconnaissance, Army Special Forces, and 1st SFOD-D (Delta) and a multi-division Master class USPSA competition pistol shooter. He has participated in combat operations and high risk protection in support of U.S. policies throughout the word as both an active duty military member, and a civilian contractor.

Mike has attended numerous Army, Marine and Navy special operations related schools, and high level training events. He is a certified FLETC Firearms Instructor, Federal Air Marshal Instructor, NRA Certified L/E Patrol Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun Instructor, Glock Armorer, and Simmunitions® FX® Scenario and safety Instructor. His specialized knowledge in urban operations, CQB, and pistol/carbine combat marksmanship from 1st-SFOD, close range and contact distance pistol combatives from work in the Federal Air Marshals, PSD and urban motorized operations from both military and contract work coupled with his broad operational experience give him a wide range of practical knowledge that is unique.

Mike trains vetted civilians, military, State, Federal and local Law Enforcement agencies the result of which made CTT-Solutions a Small Business Achievement Awardee in 2010, the first year the company did business as a stand-alone entity.
