The Practical Fundamental class is a great way to improve your practical shooting skills, no matter your level of expertise. The OpSpec Training staff provided a training environment and process that can’t help but make you a better shooter.
As a self taught shooter I had several bad habits. The Practical Fundamentals class gave me a good, solid foundation on which to improve my pistol shooting skills. For someone at my level it was like drinking from a fire hose but I took good notes and now have several drills to use to ingrain new, better habits.
My accuracy improved tremendously while actually increasing the speed at which I put rounds on target.
If you are searching for a course that will give you the tools to become a better shooter, regardless of your experience level, this is the one. You may not be better by the time you finish the course, but you will have the knowledge and tools to take with you, to apply during your training for months and years afterwards. That’s when you WILL become better.
I’ve learned techniques and drills that I know I will be using for the rest of my life.
Everyone who carries a gun should learn these techniques. They will make you a better shooter.
An excellent class that takes you from seeing your target, acquiring it and the trigger control necessary to accurately place a shot on it. Experienced shooters will also benefit from this class.
I picked up several new things from this class that helped my shooting tremendously. In particular, the dry fire drill that Harold taught doing reps of the trigger pull and getting back to reset is something I really needed so that I stop slapping the trigger when I’m running below .33 splits.
The most important aspect of this class was the quality of the instruction provided. Bruce, Harold, Doug and Steve were always engaged with what the students were doing and provided thorough and thoughtful advice at all times. Safety was paramount and driven hard throughout the entire two-day program. Every question was answered in a polite and comprehensive manner. Bruce especially was always gracious and appreciative of the input students provided and the fact that the class was well attended.
A wonderful opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business. My trigger is my new found friend! The smoothness and accuracy of my entire shot process improved dramatically over the two-day program and I now have an effective dry-fire routine to keep my skills at a high level. Thank you Bruce Gray and the entire OpSpec training team!
Bruce, Harold and Steve were excellent in their rolls. I never felt uncomfortably pressured to execute your lessons, you all are very courteous and kind.
I am very much looking forward to taking Practical Fundamentals again in the future and likely other classes from OpSpec.
Great class. Provides a thoughtful approach to trigger control that teaches you how to improve in the mechanics and the thought process of shooting. Highly recommended.
Really benefitted from the thought process approach and the drills for future practice. Bruce, Harold and Steve were excellent teachers. I particularly felt Harold’s approach helped me the most along with Bruce’s introduction to the mechanics and process.
I am a full-time firearms trainer for a major law enforcement agency in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. The class I took was the Practical Fundamentals pistol class taught by Jerry Jones and HR Hawkins. Both instructors were very polished and able to teach to all levels of firearms experience in the class.
I would categorize the class as phenomenal and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to bring their shooting to a new level. I am looking forward to taking more classes from OpSpec Training and hopefully bring them out to my agency’s range as guest instructors.
