Pistol Marksmanship Training 101 – How To Hit What You Aim At!

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)


Pistol Marksmanship Training-101 accuracy class is specifically geared toward the handgun owner who is familiar with the operation of their firearm and can safely operate it but they want to develop better fundamental marksmanship skills. In other words, they want to be able to hit what they aim at! It is a slow paced, low pressure skill building class that is suitable for men and women, beginner to advanced level shooters.

The beginning of the class starts with going over basic information and safety in a comfortable, class room environment. Then, the range time will focus on doing correct repetitions of the proper stance, grip, sight alignment, trigger press and the magical skill of “shot calling”. The repetitions will be done with dry firing and with firing live rounds. You will be taught dry firing drills that you can go home and do in the convenience of your home to continue to refine your shooting abilities. You will begin shooting at 3 yards in the morning to learn the basics. We will slowly and gradually work our way out to further distances and at the end of the day, we will all be battling it out at the 100 yard line to see who can ring the steel and see who the class champ is! That person just might win a cool, class champion prize!

    I own a handgun but was not completely comfortable with it UNTIL I TOOK THIS CLASS. It is an excellent class for a beginner such as myself. I can now handle my gun with confidence and I am much better at hitting the target. My instructor had me work a lot on my grip and it made a huge difference. Individual instruction was Super!
