Modern Shooter: Training At Sig Sauer Academy


Sig Sauer is perhaps best known for some of the most forward-looking gun designs available today. But did you know, they also teach users to get the most out of them — and any gun for that matter?

Modern Shooter heads to New Hampshire this week and the Sig Sauer Academy, one of the nation’s finest firearms training facilities. With plenty of room to shoot and scoot, the academy offers advanced self-defense and shooting instruction from seasoned law enforcement and military experts.

Basically, it’s shooting graduate school, complete with some of the most testing courses you’ll find. Using cover properly, working corners, clearing rooms and fine-tuning holdover techniques, Sig Sauer aims to get you shooting like a pro.

Gun Digest’s Luke Hartle puts his skills to the test in this action-packed episode. But the Editor-in-Chief also takes time to check out some of the company’s sweet new guns. It is Sig Sauer after all. In the above clip, Hartle investigates one of the gunmaker’s most heralded introductions in recent years — the MCX Virtus. If you want one gun to do it all, you definitely need to check out this video.

Catch the rest of the action at the Sig Sauer Academy in this episode of Modern Shooter 10:00 p.m. EST Friday on the Pursuit Channel. The episode rebroadcasts Monday at 12 p.m. EST and Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. EST.
