Advanced competition pistol 


Classes start at 9 am and go until 6 pm. 

This course is designed for people who are interested in improving their competitive shooting skills. Whether you shoot IDPA or USPSA this course is guaranteed to give you the edge needed to get ahead of the competition. Although nothing can take the place of match experience we will teach you how to properly prepare yourself both mentally and physically for the sport. It's crazy to think that people get into shooting sports without having consulted those who have extensive knowledge with equipment issues, rules of the game and years of match experience. If you are new to IDPA or USPSA this class is a must. If you have been shooting competitively for years, what you take from this class will help you get the results you've always wanted, the skills you need to win. We have IDPA State, Regional and National Champions on staff that can help you learn how to diagnose a stage. We have several USPSA Master Class shooters on the team who have years of match experience. Together we can help you develop and training regimen that elevate you to the level of shooter you aspire to be. Even if you just shoot for fun we'll teach you the skills you need to be a safer, more confident shooter. Invest in yourself and learn what it takes to be a WINNER!
