The goal of this course is to make you more proficient, knowledgeable, and ultimately a better shooter when you leave. This course is also an excellent preparation course for the student interested in continuing training.
This course is offered in a one day, 8 hour block. The class begins with a classroom lecture and presentation, and demonstrations. We review the nomenclature and dive more into the mechanics and parts of the gun so you have a better understanding of how your pistol works, and where to start looking if issues arise.
Being this is not a basic course you should have a proven reliable pistol and gear. During the range portion students will perform a variety of drills becoming proficient with the fundamentals of marksmanship, loading, operating the pistol safely, and building a skill set to create effective training and practice sessions on their own. We also start to work on movement and shooting on the move. We will shoot steel at greater distances from our intro course to confirm the fundamentals of marksmanship.
Refreshments, sports drinks, and water, will be included with course.
