Pistol & Rifle Applications is a look into how to build a solid foundation with your pistol (Day 1) and Rifle (day 2). We break things way down and then build back up so as shooters not only have a solid understanding of the fundamentals and mechanics but, they understand the why’s of how they’re training. This course is intended to be a road map to becoming proficient. This is an intermediate level class that a new shooter looking to find out ways to step up to the next level will greatly benefit from. It’s also a class that higher level shooters can come to refine techniques and learn to push speed and accuracy. Pistol & Rifle Applications is a great class to not only build confidence but to learn where to go from here.
