I learned a tremendous amount, and understand what I have to work on. The class was taught in an extremely safe manner. The instructors were excellent.

Jerry was an excellent instructor. Great feed back and communication.

I thought the class was excellent and was exactly what I needed. The sheer repetition really taught me to focus on the sight picture. At the end of the class I understood and knew what it was like when everything came together. I’m definitely not “there” yet, however I do understand what it looks and feels like when everything comes together. Equally important I also know what I need to do to continue to improve.
I also though the instructor was excellent. He was really good at offering suggestions for improvement, but also knew when to back off. Sometimes, as a student, you need to figure things out on your own, and he walked that fine line well.
I understand safety is a big concern anytime firearms are used, and this goes for students as well as the instructor. Having never taken a class from OpSpec I have a legitimate concern that I will feel and be safe during the class. I thought safety was handled at the appropriate level for the class and at no time did I ever feel safety was lacking or I was in an unsafe environment.

Just completed my second class with Mr. Jerry Jones, and once again, I enjoyed a formidable learning experience.
Truly, Mr. Jones is the rare instructor who is consummately committed on his students’ learning and development. He espouses process oriented marksmanship and will dissect each component so the process is both understood and safely executed.
One simply could not ask more!

Bruce and staff are excellent! Great mix of instructors that bring real world experience to the course.

As a ‘distinguished senior’ who is relatively new to IDPA and USPSA, I came away with specific practice activities/routines which I’m confident will improve my performance. I really appreciated the personal attention and instruction that each of us received.
Mike S. - June 2016 Practical Fundamentals
Brilliant class that opened my mind to a path to excellence. Gave the student a bridge to understand what the master knows and techniques to increase their own skills.
Bob D.Firearms InstructorPractical Fundamentals, Sept. 2016
Jerry was fantastic, I really appreciate his direct approach and constructive feedback. Bruce is very analytical in his approach, so they balance well. Ray was great at filling in the gaps and throwing out the occasional verbal confidence booster. I came away from this class with significantly better trigger control and a lot more knowledge on how to improve it going forward. I shoot a lot, but this basic foundation is something that can’t be overemphasized.
Matt G. - May 2016 Advanced Pistol Operator
The class was extremely well put together, the instructors were friendly and approachable, and the pace was spot on to cover the material. I learned more than I had hoped and look forward to taking more classes in the future.
Michael F. - Dec. 2014 Practical Fundamentals
I am a USPSA Master class shooter and I hit a plateau for the last six months that I have been struggling to overcome. Bruce was fantastic with his explanation of the Bump Drill and trigger manipulation. In the class, I shot more alphas and hit the steel more consistently than ever. I would definitely recommend this class to everyone I see. I also look forward to taking it again.
