Technical Pistol Skills is a class intended for the shooter who wants to improve their accuracy, speed, and weapons handling skills. This class forgoes defensive and tactical shooting applications, and instead focuses strictly on making the student a more accurate and faster shooter. Individual attention is given to each student, to ensure that they get the most from the training. To keep instructor to student interaction at the needed level, the class will be limited to 8 students.

Technical Pistol is conducted entirely on the range, and will cover the following topics:


  • Safety Review

  • Initial Skills Assessment

  • Optimizing the grip

  • Trigger control

  • Accuracy Exercises

  • Reloading the Pistol

  • Speed Exercises

  • Skills Reassessment
