Course Mission

One-on-One personal training to help the student:

  • Master the fundamentals
  • Ingrain good shooting habits
  • Improve accuracy
  • Become more comfortable and confident with the firearm.

Training Philosophy

While other organizations have large classes and bang this type of course out in one day, we find that such training does not lead to long term change and improvement.

Our experience shows that this course is far more effective (and enjoyable) for our students, when taught in 5 SESSIONS spread over Five Days spread within 5 - 10 days.
- This gives the student time to absorb the coaching between each session, and come back refreshed and ready to continue honing skills.
