Looking to become faster and more accurate for defensive or competitive shooting?
Advanced Pistol Marksmanship places a heavy emphasis on process oriented technical marksmanship to solve various marksmanship challenges. The goal of this course is to take the shooter through a series of logically organized problems, and equip the shooter with the ability to solve them. Taught by instructors Jerry Jones, Bruce Gray, Doug Flavin, and/or HR Hawkins.
This is not a basic class. At minimum, students should have taken a basic handgun safety course and have experience with their firearm and gear. We expect students to have experience shooting on a line in a safe manner, including loading, reloading and shooting from the holster. Shooters with IDPA, USPSA, NRA Action Pistol, 3-Gun, law enforcement and military experience meet program prerequisites.
Students failing to meet and maintain our safety requirements and/or who cannot meet and immediately demonstrate the minimum skills required for the specific class may be removed from training. Please ensure you have read through the class description and fully understand our prerequisites before registering.
This has been described as a very mentally challenging course that pays a dividend in overall technical skills. This is the two-day version of this class, offering more in-depth training objectives. Objectives will be achieved with a strong emphasis on safety.
