Integrity FTC firmly believes in the Crawl-Walk-Run method of instruction and learning. We have taken this approach in developing all of our classes, including our AR-15 Advanced Rifle Marksmanship class. This class is designed to take the student through drills and instruction that will train you in advanced marksmanship skills oriented for personal defense.  We offer this course in both coed and ladies only classes. Contact us if you have a group or team and would like to schedule a private class.


Location: We will host this class at the highly acclaimed tactical facility of CCC Shooting Complex in Navasota, Texas.


Course Advisor: This course was developed and mentored by our Advisor and friend Dave Liwanig, a 31 year veteran Army Special Forces officer, and former graduate of Texas A&M University and the Corps of Cadets. You may also know of Dave through the TV series Myth Busters, where Dave is the guest firearms expert known as "Sniper Dave".


Instructors for this Course: The course Program of Instruction is developed and vetted by former military Special Forces and Special Operations instructors. Many times although not always (due to ongoing obligations), they will be assisting in this class. Other non-military instructors for this class have also been trained by these professionals for this class. ALL instructors for this class have been vetted and trained for safety, skills, and the ability to instruct.


17 June 2017 - Class Update: Dave Liwanig was called back to work for Army ROTC at Fort Knox during this date and will not be able to join us for this class. The rest of the class instructors remain as advertised. We hope to have Dave back soon for latter classes in the fall.
