Steyr Arms Supports Our Men and Women in Blue

BESSEMER, Ala. (June 18, 2018) — The folks at Steyr Arms USA know that the men and women of law enforcement not only need but deserve the very best in training. To assist them, the company is opening its doors to the Steyr Academy at the CMP Range in Talladega, Ala., to the designated marksmen for law enforcement agencies around the country. The company is offering its long-range training course at no charge to those needing to perfect their skills in the line of duty.

The long-range course is a two-day, in-depth course taught by Steyr's Training Academy Director Eduardo Abril de Fontcuberta, a long-range world champion who has more than 25 years experience as a military and police sniper instructor and armorer, and is one of the World's Extreme Long-Range leaders. He is dedicated to teaching a no-nonsense course in a personal trainer environment that provides his students with the knowledge necessary to become a super-accurate long-distance shooter in any condition.

“At Steyr Arms, we are proud to support law enforcement,” said Scott O’Brien, president and CEO. “We are using our training academy to show our respect for police officers across the country who put their lives at risk every day to keep us safe. This is our way of saying thank you for everything you do.”

The two-day course is free to qualified LE marksmen. If you are the designated marksman at your agency or know someone who would be interested, please click here to contact us, and we'll get you scheduled for one of our world-class training courses. All you have to do is get there.
