At a Glance

A distinguished marksman for the US Marine Corps who trained his fellow Marines in pistol and rifle shooting, Sergeant Matt Foster now helms a team of coed firearms instructors. The instructors rely on a TPI training method—an acronym for Total Participant Involvement—that emphasizes one-on-training and encourages students to go at their own pace to maximize skill retention.
