A recently acquired U.S. Army Manual for Quick Kill instruction forms the basis for the class.  Tim Gwynn was first introduced to this method of shooting without reference to sights in 1968.  It was part of a pre-deployment package.

Through a proven and effective series of BB Gun targets, both aerial and ground, the shooter is led to shoot airborne and terrestrial targets instinctively. 

The next step is to transition to firearms and put the instruction into practice.
