Mike teaches simple, efficient and tactically sound techniques. This simple approach enabled me to improve my understanding of the AR weapon system. Through Mike’s drill’s and instruction I was able to improve my speed, accuracy and weapon manipulation skills to new levels. I put our team and agency through the lessons learned from Mike. The feedback from the officer’s was phenomenal. All shooters reported an increase in personal confidence after the course. There is no doubt that the information we gained from Mike’s real world experience will be used to save officer’s lives in future engagements.
Mike Pannone is unique in the world of tactical instructors with Special Operations Forces (SOF) or Special Forces (SF) backgrounds, as he combines Tier-1 Army SF operational knowledge and experience with a forensic mechanical knowledge of the M4/AR, HK416, and Glock weapons platforms. He’s also a very good writer. These capabilities are very rare to find all wrapped up inside one individual.
