This was an excellent class for those who want to move beyond the basic fundamentals of shooting to understand how the body and mind implement the mechanical actions. Take your shooting to another level by learning how to use the subconscious part of the mind to link your training to your match performance.

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.

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.

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 was my first OpSpec class and first time at the SIG SAUER Academy. I very much enjoyed the course and definitely went away with a whole new perspective and a new set of skills and knowledge, as well as a renewed level of confidence. The training methodology and level of expertise far exceeded my expectations.

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

Training done right! Read the course information and you won’t be disappointed. Jerry Jones is as good an instructor as I have encountered during weapons training. He will provide you the roadmap and you just need to execute. He was helpful to students and did not belittle them when having troubles. I say it again you will not be disappointed!

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.
