SMG Operator

2 Days (16 Hours)

1000 rounds SMG
100 rounds handgun



Are carbines more capable? Probably. But who cares. The 80’s were awesome, and SMGs were king back then for CQB, counter-terrorism, and hostage rescue. Bring your semi-auto MP5 clone and come have fun with us. Nomex and Avon gas masks, or white tank tops are all optional, but bonus points if you bring a Beretta 92F as your sidearm.

SMG Operator is designed to provide the intermediate level student with a systematic approach to SMG/MP5 clone marksmanship, manipulations, and employment. Our curriculum is progressive in format, with each component skill laying the foundation for the next leading to a well-rounded combat SMG shooter.
