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.

It is amazing what difference a day makes!. You start off in the morning shooting so-so, and by the afternoon you are (almost) an expert. No matter how much you think you know, taking the class helps you realize how much better you can become.

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.

I was introduced to a new shooting technique and through instruction and high repetition I was able to learn and use it well. I’m a better shooter as a result of this course. As a firearms instructor for my Dept. and recruit level in my State I was amazed by the professionalism, knowledge and teaching techniques of both instructors. Watching them I was able to critique myself as an instructor and learn valuable skills to take back with me. This course was a dual learning experience for me and made me a better shooter and instructor. I highly recommend it to Law Enforcement Trainers.

… a natural progression of Practical Fundamentals. The high round count provided ample training time with each drill type to work and experience the process of high speed marksmanship. The moments when everything came together completely fulfilled my expectations. The advice given by Jerry and the team was easy to understand and made an immediate improvement on my shooting ability. Bruce provided a detailed insight into the competitive shooting world. When he spoke it was almost as if he was giving away trade secrets.

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.

Thoroughly 100% professional, safe and very informative. After going through the class, I understand why some folks feel inclined to take it more than once. Highly recommended.

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.

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.
