If you want to learn to shoot fast and accurately this is the class for you. There are plenty of other classes available where you can make a lot of noise and spend a lot of hard-earned money, but none that explains in detail how to go fast and then practices each of the steps required for success. The class was challenging but I left the range each day with a smile on my face.

If you take your firearms training serious and want to take your skills to the next level, I highly recommend taking the practical fundamentals course. Far too often we rely on the newest wazoo equipment or trigger job to shoot better when in reality we need to bring it back and focus on the fundamentals. Proficiency with a firearm is a perishable skill and we all need to take the time to refocus on the fundamentals of good marksmanship. Don’t let your ego cloud get the best of you. Be safe, train hard and God bless.

This is my third trip to MOAC, and EVERY time I learn something new. The OpSpec crew does a fantastic job of bringing in new techniques or tweeks on existing techniques that make them easier to learn and incorporate into one’s shooting and dry practice. I noticed a big improvement in my shooting over the course of the week and I gained still more tools to drive it farther.
Shooting Bill Drills on 6″ plates at 50 yards strong hand only and support hand only and making a high percentage of the hits was a real eye opener. I’d highly recommend MOAC (or any OpSpec class for that matter) to anyone who is serious about moving their shooting forward.

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.

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.

This class, as expected, was outstanding and really immersed me into learning my trigger and how to use it in a way I never had before. The high round count took the concepts and cemented them. This class gave me so much to practice and work on this next year before I take my next OpSpec class.
I have had a lot of firearms training from various places in the past. I can honestly say if you have even considered getting good training would be a fool to not highly consider an OpSpec class. OpSpec Training offers the best firearms training I have received to date, hands down!

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.

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.

Jerry and Harold were excellent instructors. You provided constructive criticism and positive feedback to individual shooters throughout the class. The techniques taught in Practical Fundamentals provide a shooter with the building blocks necessary to become a better shooter. Thanks.

Made me a more confident shooter.
