Pistol 1 (8 hours, 350 rounds)

“There is no such thing as an advanced skill – only mastery of the fundamentals”.

In any gunfight, the ability to quickly and efficiently apply the fundamentals of marksmanship is as important as using appropriate tactics and making good decisions. This eight-hour pistol class will challenge developing and advanced shooters alike, redefining their standards for accuracy and speed.

Instructors will help students break down the fundamentals of pistol shooting and weapon-handling in a logical and personalized manner most shooters have never experienced before. Students will be taught how to increase their speed by improving their efficiency, detailed marksmanship instruction will help improve their accuracy at all distances, and students will learn how to push the effective range of their pistol to 50 yards and beyond. Students will not only walk away from Pistol 1 as better shooters, they will understand the concepts behind the material they were taught, so they can continue to develop their own skills through dry-fire and live-fire training.

Pistol 1: Pistol Fundamentals is your first step to becoming a better shooter.

Topics covered include:
-Fundamentals of marksmanship
-Understanding the status of your weapon at all times
-Maximizing efficiency of presentations (draws) and reloads
-Shot cadence, shot timing and how to train shoot faster
