Looking forward to training with you all again

I would highly recommend this class to anyone wanting to build a strong foundation on trigger control. The method of teaching these principles is “where the money is.” I’m developing new, positive habits from what I learned from this class and will continue to grow as a better gunfighter as a result. Looking forward to training with you all again real soon.

My gun handling improved exponentially

Really fantastic. The course exceeded my expectations. My gun handling improved exponentially. The instructors were not only excellent, they were very decent, approachable, and positive people. That makes a big difference.

So much positive information

There was so much positive information provided during this intense two day course but the two key takeaways, for me, were the trigger bump practices and keying in and seeing the front sight bob or lift as you prepare for the subsequent shot.

A pretty common experience is that so often when aiming and just prior to firing, we tense in anticipation of the shot and often dip/drop the shot – the “let it happen” statement really hit home with me and resulted in incredible shots and subsequent follow-up round placements.

Thank you OpSpec – it was a pleasure.

Made a noticeable difference in my shooting skills!

It’s a great, highly educational, well thought out class with just enough instruction and live fire to keep your attention and interest throughout the day. Nothing seemed to drag on, and nothing seemed to move on too quickly.

It really made a noticeable difference in my shooting skills!

I went into this training with high expectations due to the past testimonials and they were exceeded

I went into this training with high expectations due to the past testimonials and they were exceeded. Being basically self taught with the exception of basic firearm safety and handling exposure, I have a lot to unlearn.

While two days was not quite long enough to erase all my bad habits – I do see a path forward to continue to approve. The instructors were exceptional with the way they interacted with the group and individuals. My “aha moment” was the importance of dry firing and the how you can train realistically utilizing dry firing as the foundation.

Best course I have taken dealing with fundamentals in general and trigger management

This was my 10th training course, not including military and FLETC provided training. By far, this was the best course I have taken dealing with fundamentals in general and trigger management specifically. The level of detail in the demos and lecture explanations as to why certain techniques work better than others went far beyond any other course I have taken. This is an outstanding course to start your training year with to ensure you have the fundamental tools needed to get the most out of your shooting.

The class was filled with professionals and the instructors topped the list

I learned a great deal in a short time… but the pace was exactly what I needed not too fast but fast enough to keep me challenged.

The class was filled with professionals and the instructors topped the list. Thanks guys.

The one-on-one training was invaluable

I really enjoyed my three day course! The one-on-one training was invaluable to my progress. I am already planning to attend many more OpSpec Training classes, especially MOAC!

The OpSpec Training instructors were top notch

This was my third Operation Specific class after Practical Fundamentals and MOAC. Even though MOAC was billed as a high level class, I felt the Practical Fundamentals was more difficult because it focused solely on trigger reset and prep – in other words, the foundation for faster shooting. As we discussed in class, this is simple but not easy.

I would retake this class because it is the single most important skill I need to improve my shooting.

As usual, the Op Spec instructors were top notch.

The instructors were very helpful

The instructors were very helpful in explaining concepts and providing individualized feedback. Emphasis on safe gun handling skills, reloading on the timer and strong hand/weak hand shooting proved to be an important addition to the other training.

MOAC is the only course I will come to year after year

I have limited training dollars. I make it a point to do research on courses and spend my money wisely. In the last three years I have had the opportunity to train with some of the finest instructors.

MOAC is the only course I will come to year after year.

I would say that the OpSpec Training course (MOAC) is the BEST all around firearms course I have taken. The class incorporates the lost art of simply making sure you put your rounds on target.

This is my second year back and more then the curriculum, it was the staff that brought me back. The instructors come with top notch resumes and have the skill set to step up on the line and prove it. That’s what counts.

I would highly recommend you take these guys if you want to understand how to put rounds on target and above all have a great time, in a safe environment.

This class helped me learn how to shoot well

I’ve been to firearms instruction all over the country and no one can put all the mechanics of shooting together better than Jerry Jones. This class helped me learn how to shoot well and correct problems that may arise.

EVERY time I learn something new

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.

Always feel the safest at OpSpec classes

Another great class from the folks at OpSpec. I’ve trained with many different instructors and always feel the safest at OpSpec classes. Firearm operation fundamentals are always stressed at OpSpec. A lot of classes I take end up being fun for shooting a bunch but OpSpec teaches the proper fundamentals and builds skills from there.

I ALWAYS leave the class with training routines I can take home and practice.

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.

I learned a tremendous amount, and understand what I have to work on. The class was taught in an extremely safe manner. The instructors were excellent.

This was a great class that allowed me to tune up my fundamentals, and learn how to train in the future to continue to improve. Jerry Jones, my instructor broke down some concepts in a way that was more helpful than I was taught in the past.
