Practical Pistol Applications is a look into how to build a solid foundation with your pistol to enhance pistol shooting performance.  We will break things down to the fundamental elements, then build them back up to advanced techniques.  This will serve to not only give the shooter a solid understanding of the fundamentals and mechanics, but to understand the "why" and "how" aspects of their training.


The Practical Pistol Applications course is a road map to becoming a more proficient performance pistol shooter.  This is an intermediate level class that will benefit both the beginner shooter looking to advance to the next level, as well as the more experienced shooter looking to refine techniques and challenge themselves to push speed and accuracy.


This is a great class to not only build confidence, but to achieve proficiency in enhancing pistol shooting performance.
