Opex is a month away!

Vortex Canada will have an assortment of optics on display that will meet the demands of Law Enforcement, Military, and Security Forces. Including Riflescopes, Red-Dots, Binoculars, Monoculars, Spotting Scopes and Laser Rangefinders.

Vortex Canada’s CPL. REGINALD J. WALES C.A.F. RET. will be launching a Training Manual called "The Operational Tactical Optics Program” which is a Professional Firearm Optics Training Program for Law Enforcement, Military, and Security Forces.

Advances in modern optics have created the need to implement a Professional Firearm Optics and Observation Program that will increase the effectiveness of the Officers’ abilities in the field and bring more resources to the Service. The knowledge gained from the Operational Tactical Optics Program will be beneficial to the Front-Line Officer, designated Marksman, Sniper Teams, Use of Force Trainers, as well as general observation and surveillance.

Procurement Officers will benefit from the program as they will be able to make use of the knowledge gained to make the appropriate purchases needed that will benefit their Service.

This program is designed to help reduce training costs, at the same time create the largest return on investment from any training available today within the Law Enforcement field.

New modern techniques are discussed, as well as their application of use in real–world scenarios.
