Kit Badger Presents – NightFighter 101

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

In this post from Kit Badger, Ivan shares this video he created while attending the Viking Tactics NightFighter 101 course at SIG Academy.

He sent us this note:

This is the first shooting course review I have done, but I plan to do more. Shooting courses are one of those high ticket items between tuition, ammo, travel, etc. And I think by bringing some honest reviews of them I can hopefully save some people time and money by pointing them in the direction of the training / experience that they will get the most out of.

We’ve hit the highlights, check out the whole post at kitbadger.com/nightfighter-101-with-viking-tactics.
