Handgun Marksmanship Level I (1 Day)

1 day of training from 9 am until 6 pm. 

Revolvers and Semi-automatics are welcome!   

We can help you be a better shooter. If you want to shoot more accurately and more proficiently sign up for this class.  There is no age limit at The Defensive Shooting Academy so your whole family can participate. As long as your kids are safe, they are more than welcome to participate in the class with you. All we ask is that they be mature enough to understand the simple fact that they will be holding a potentially lethal weapon and they have to handle it appropriately. We have trained 8 year olds to Force Recon Marines and everything in between. All have said the same thing, “WOW! I never knew there was so much to learn.” Anyone who wants to learn the proper fundamentals of marksmanship should register for this class.  Unless you have been trained by a professional firearms instructor, you don’t know what you don’t know. If you have guns in your home this class is ideal for the whole family!  We cover a lot of great information. We do dry-fire exercises to help you build in proper technique and we work on one technique at a time so everything comes together nice and smooth. You can shoot from 300-600 rounds in this class. It’s really up to you. Since we aren’t shooting the entire time, you won't leave feeling exhausted or overworked so don’t be concerned about that. You will learn a ton and have a great time doing it or your training is FREE.

You will receive world-class, professional firearms instruction.  You won't find a similar class like this anywhere in the country.  I know lots of places claim to teach marksmanship but we have found no one does it better than us. Please take advantage of this while it's available.  Sign the whole family up today!  If you aren’t 100% satisfied, you won’t pay us a dime. This is our guarantee. You’ll either love it or it’s on us. We back up what we teach with absolute no risk to you. Sign up with confidence. You’ll be so glad you took this course even if you THINK you know how to shoot.

It’s a relaxed family atmosphere with no egomaniac firearms instructors. Just laid back, world-class shooters and teachers promoting the freedoms we enjoy everyday in this country. Hope to see you here.
