Performance Pistol

Performance Pistol is a course designed to break down and rebuild shooters’ foundational skills, while taking a deep dive into the implementation of proper and efficient mechanics.  The course will explore applying those mechanics at speed, and on the move.  This is NOT a beginner’s course.  Student’s should have basic knowledge of safe weapons handling and be able to hit a USPSA A-Zone with no time limit.  Student’s will leave the course with the tools to increase their performance with a pistol and a better understanding of how to structure their own live-fire and dryfire training.
