The degree to which safety was stressed was exceptional and was as important – or perhaps more so – than the instruction in shooting. It’s way too easy to get complacent the more familiar you are with something. The constant reminder by all of the instructors was an excellent reminder that safety must always be considered first.

The instruction was great. The pace was good. I was very happy with the course. The focus of the “trigger” was an eye opener. …

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

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.

One of the best three days of pistol training I have ever spent. This course is a must for those that want to really sharpen their marksman skills, and learn how to drive the gun hard. Very organized curriculum with excellent instruction and real world experience. Not for beginners but excellent training for intermediate to professional shooters. Look forward to attending again next year.

Advanced Competition Pistol was one of the toughest classes I’ve ever taken, not only due to the round count and challenging drills and targets, but because of how much self-examination of the shooter’s ego and motivations was involved through detailed lectures and question/answer sessions. I learned a lot about where I’m at with my own shooting, what I can get better at, and more importantly, how to continue forging ahead with improvement. I’d recommend this class to any competitive shooter who’s trying to break through plateaus or keep moving up in skill level.
Annette E. - May 2016 Advanced Competition Pistol
Knowing that the class was never designed to turn out a polished shooter, I think overall the instructor did a good job of delivering the material in an order that continued to emphasize the previous lesson while layering the next lesson on top. I will likely take this class again…
Tony K - Dec. 2014 Practical Fundamentals
I learned quite a bit from this course and have picked up many new skills that I feel confident that I can practice and develop on my own. Because of the broad range of skill sets taught in this course, I will likely re-take it again in the next year or two.

This class provided an excellent baseline of fundamental pistol skills from which to build an effective personal training regime.

This was a great class that allowed me to tune up my fundamentals, and learn how to train in the future to continue to improve. Jerry Jones, my instructor broke down some concepts in a way that was more helpful than I was taught in the past.
