Law enforcement agencies from all across Oklahoma gathered today for their fourth day of S.W.A.T. training.

Ardmore is hosting the S.W.A.T. school..Tishomingo was the sight for the firing range portion.

They were on the range for most of the day practicing technical swat procedures.

The police department said this day was particularly important because it is dangerous dealing with firearms.

They practiced with shot guns, pistols, and other weapons in positional training and shoot-house training.

"Its all challenging its all tough. We expect a lot out of these guys and we push them really hard," Ryan Hunnicutt S.W.A.T Trainer and Ardmore Police said.

Tomorrow they will continue with hostage negotiations and more class room work.

The S.W.A.T school ends on Saturday.
