We have dates for our annual MOAC week. For 2020, we'll be back in Okeechobee, Florida from Dec. 9 to Dec. 13. This is actually a very good travel week, as it is a full week after Thanksgiving and well before the Christmas break. Central Florida weather in early December is as you'd expect. Temperatures reaching the mid-70s during the day, and cooler in the evenings (mid-50s). Great for outdoor training.
The class will be limited to a maximum of 20 students, shot all on steel, with an approximate 4,000 round count.
Prior to the start of class, students should have completed OpSpec Training’s Practical Fundamentals class or have attended an equivalent trigger control-based program from another training organization within the past 36 months. If you have the training experience, solid gun-handling skills, and can draw from the holster and reliably hit an 8-inch target from 5 yards in under 1.5 seconds you meet the prerequisites for this advanced program.
We're announcing this class a full year in advance, so you've got plenty of time to prepare, plus we've set up a payment plan schedule.
MOAC MOAC is a five-day, 40 hour, high round count pistol course designed to take the intermediate shooter and provide them with the tools to become an advanced or expert shooter. OpSpec Training alumni frequently request a long-duration program – building upon our flagship two-day Practical Fundamentals program – designed to enforce and develop persistent, durable skills. MOAC develops these skills through repetition and process oriented marksmanship.
Read everything you need to know about MOAC right here, and the details and information about the class in Florida is posted here and we will update as we have more information. Interested in class testimonials from students? We also have them posted here, and many students will share their experiences with you if you ask. They will not share details about drills with you, but they will provide you with general info.
Instructors*: Jerry Jones and others. Most likely there will be at least four OpSpec staff members on-site for the week.
When: Dec. 9-13, 2020, 9a to 5p each day.
Where: OK Corral Gun Club 9449 NE 48th Street Okeechobee, Florida
Class size: Limited to 20 students.
Tuition: $995 A deposit of $245 holds your spot, with additional payments due on a specified schedule.
Deposit due at sign-up – $245
Additional payment due July 1, 2020 – $250
Additional payment due Sept. 1, 2020 – $250
Final payment and balance due on Nov. 1, 2020 – $250
This payment scheduled is different than our normal classes. This class is in high demand, and we want to provide everyone the ability to sign up early so they can make travel arrangements as needed.
Range Fees: Range fees are $100 per student (for the week) and are not included in the class tuition.
Local Host: Emmett Jarvis from Elite Firearms Training. Emmett has taken MOAC multiple times, and brings the class back to one of his home ranges.
Ammunition: Round count for MOAC will be approximately 2,500 to 2,800 rounds. (As of Sept. 1, this is a REDUCTION in the previous estimate of 3,800 rounds.) Enrolled students will be able to ship or drop ship ammunition and gear to the training location. We strongly suggest shooting a compact (think P229) to full-sized (think P226), 9mm pistol during this class.
Along with reviewing our What to Bring page, note you'll also need at least six magazines, four magazine carriers and 50 dummy rounds. We suggest the Saf-T-Trainers from Brownells. Understand some of the dummy rounds will break during training.
* Instructors listed for specific programs have committed to teach the class on those dates. Although we do not anticipate changes, travel delays, family emergencies or illness may result in instructor substitutions.This message has been edited. Last edited by: steve495,
