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 understand further 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. Using various dry fire and live fire exercises, students are brought through the fundamentals of marksmanship, focusing on trigger control to help the shooter make fast hits on small targets on demand.

Where to Stay
There are a variety of hotel and small inn options within 10 to 15 minutes of the range in Casa Grande.
Food at Lunch Break
To ensure you get the most “bang for your buck,” we try to keep lunch breaks as short as possible. If you can bring your lunch, we suggest you do so. If you need to run out and get a quick meal, options start about 10 minutes away along I-10.
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.
