Important Links and Information
* Instructors listed for specific programs have committed to teaching the class on those dates. Although we do not anticipate changes, travel delays, family emergencies or illness may result in instructor substitutions.
This course teaches the techniques and philosophy of what OpSpec Training believes a shooter needs to improve to their full potential. This is not a beginning handgun course.
Practical Fundamentals (Pistol) may be repeated several times to further one’s understanding of the concepts involved. OpSpec Training instructional staff include a collaboration of custom gunsmiths, competitive shooting, and law enforcement specialists who have created a training environment and curriculum that is ‘process’ oriented rather than ‘goal’ oriented.
Using a building-block approach, Practical Fundamentals encourages students to focus on the process of running the gun, tamping down the emotional desire to see results on the target. By using a variety of dry fire and live fire exercises, students are brought through the fundamentals of marksmanship with a focus on trigger control to help the shooter make fast hits on small targets, on demand.
Practical Fundamentals will provide any shooter – at every level – with new skills and a progressive roadmap to isolate and improve on the things that matter the most in hitting targets at speed.

Food at Lunch Break
To ensure you get the most “bang for your buck,” we try to keep lunch breaks as short as possible (one hour). If you can bring your lunch, you may do so. Fast food options are located less than 10 minutes away near the intersection of Route 101 and Route 125.
This is not a basic class. At minimum, students should have taken a basic handgun safety course and have experience with their firearm and gear. We expect students to have experience shooting on a line in a safe manner, including loading, reloading and drawing/shooting from the holster. Shooters with IDPA, USPSA, NRA Action Pistol, 3-Gun, law enforcement and military experience meet the program prerequisites.
