The lecture portion of the class was worth the price of the class. I would like to see a book with this material described in detail. As a matter of fact, a split book on competition and tactical shooting by OpSpec Training would be awesome. A perfect combination. The hospitality of the range was great. I would like to see some OpSpec apparel and perhaps a manual to accompany the classes. Looking forward to more classes.

I took the class to benefit from Bruce’s teaching. He did not disappoint. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to benefit from his insights. I say that as one who has had the opportunity to learn from a number of instructors, including: Gunsite (Ed Stock), Hackathorn (Ron Avery) and briefly, Ayoob. Were I able only to get further instruction from one person, I would choose Bruce.

I have been working in law enforcement for twenty years. I learned techniques and other shooting skills I would have never thought possible. I would rate this class and the instructors with an A+. They cared about what they were teaching and the students progress. I think every law enforcement officer would be well served by taking pistol fundamentals and the advanced pistol operator class.

Excellent, safe instructors with a tremendous amount of firearms knowledge. I would recommend anyone who owns or carries a firearm to take the Pistol CQB class. It opened my eyes to how to look for the deadly angles in your home. I completely changed my home defense plan based on this class.

Practical Fundamentals was a fantastic class, and Bruce, Doug and Steve were amazing instructors. Definitely interested in taking both Practical Fundamentals and other OpSpec offerings in the future. Keep up the great work.

I’m a new shooter with less than a year’s worth of experience, and with my limited training I was concerned that I’d be out of my league when the other shooters in the class. While its true that the class had quit a few very experienced shooters, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the concepts and drills that Jerry and his team were teaching were applicable to all the students in the class no matter the skill level or experience. In no time I felt very comfortable shooting shoulder to shoulder with all my fellow students no matter the skill level as we were all learning. This class was excellent.

An excellent class for learning, understanding, and practicing the fundamentals of pistol usage and control in various scenarios.

If you want to learn how to shoot and accurate then the MOAC is for you! The instructors are great and their methods of instruction are solid and to the point. The high round count of saturation training will make you a better shooter. Bring a speedloader!

Excellent training techniques and very professional staff at this Practical Fundamentals session! I should have done this years ago, as it provides essential building blocks and has proven techniques which demonstrate positive and satisfying results.
I would recommend this session to anyone who wants to advance their skills and move to the next level of marksmanship and performance.
The [OpSpec Training] organization has spent a great deal of time and energy in preparation for these sessions, and continues to refine the course as new techniques become available.

Although this was presented as a more advanced class, the fundamentals of trigger control and the reasons for it have benefited me immeasurably. I wish I’d encountered such instruction years ago as I would be a better shooter today. I know that in a year (yes, I’ll keep practicing the Bump Drill) my shooting will be markedly improved over how it was prior to my entering the class.
The view towards shooting, detaching myself from the result, resounds with other recommendations I’ve heard in life. My too brief two days in this class reinforced lessons I will take to other events and activities. Although this next statement could be described as hyperbolic, I’ll stand by my impression as, for a dedicated shooter, this class could easily be described as life-changing.
