This was the best MOAC to date. Each day was carefully planned. Skills learned one day were put to use and built upon the next. The availability of one-to-one instructing both on the shooting line and off was the best I have seen.
The instructor to student ratio was much better than other classes I’ve attended anywhere. Having three instructors and the host who was an instructor that also participated in the class to 10 students was really helpful.
Perhaps the best feature was that the five days allowed me to better absorb everything, and go at my pace until they became second nature, without trying to keep up with the faster shooters.
I definitely recommend this class.
This class was transformational. I was able ti increase my shooting ability in one week more than years of training and many classes with other instructors.
I can’t say enough about the instructors…first class all the way!
Take. This. Class. Do you think you’re a good pistol shooter? Accurate? Fast? Guess what, you are probably nowhere near to reaching your potential. Do you know what to practice and how to get better? I thought I did, but I was woefully incorrect.
I’ve been shooting for a long time and I cannot remember a course that fundamentally advanced my shooting accuracy and speed with a pistol. The team revealed “gaps in my game” and worked with me to correct them (and got me over the hump of personal frustration with deconstructing thirty years of ingrained mental/physical processes).
This class will deconstruct and re-train the mechanical aspects of your trigger control — and it will do it enough times that you demonstrate significant progress during the class. Also, it will give you the tools to continue to up your game after the class. All you have to do is leave your ego at home and play a little game.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I attended the MOAC course in Mesa, Arizona. The course was an excellent value for the cost, and the takeaway worth far more than the price of admission. For many years any semblance of speed in my shooting was restricted to the time between one shot and when the sight picture returned to normal, before I could fire again. By the time the course was finished I was able to precisely control and observe sight movement in rapid firing and place shot strings in a small zone on the steel.
I became acutely aware of my own shortcomings as a shooter, and was provided the means to improve them, as well as drills and exercises for homework and to use as tools beyond the training in the months to come. Four instructors were present, all of whom gave excellent counsel, well placed critiques, and tips, pointers, training, lectures, and instruction that applied at the most fundamental level to help me as an individual. Class size was kept small, and it became quickly apparent that the instructors didn’t miss much, if anything. We were kept honest, and no one had an opportunity to rest on their laurels. Regardless of our backgrounds or skill levels entering the class, the instructor cadre worked hard to ensure that each student progressed in safety, handling, understanding, skill, speed, accuracy, presentation, technique, and procedure.
Emphasis throughout the program was on safety, with all basic safety policies, rules and procedures reviewed several times a day, as well as a medical briefing prior to every session, morning and afternoon. Safety was emphasized on the line as well as the loading area and classroom settings.
The class was not full of war stories, with just enough personal experience introduced to punctuate points, and a great deal of hands-on instruction. Instructors provided demonstrations, and emphasized learning by doing. Numerous timed drills were provided to allow students to measure their progress during the class.
The MOAC training is immensely beneficial to any shooter, whether military, law enforcement, competitor, or private carry or marksmanship. Every aspect of the training, which was logical and well organized, worked toward making the shooter better, safer, faster, and more efficient. I was excited to have the opportunity to attend the class, but came away more enthused and jazzed about what we covered and where I could go with it than when I went in.
The cost of the course, especially given travel, time off work, ammunition, tuition, equipment and other aspects, was not cheap, but well worth the investment. I have no reservations about recommending OpSpec Training, or the instructors who presented the material, and suggest that anyone seeking to improve their shooting, regardless of discipline or profession, avail themselves of the classes. I will be attending more.
