This 3-day class is for beginner and intermediate pistol shooters who want to perfect their skills and manage their equipment safely while learning to protect themselves and loved ones. In this safe and supportive environment, you will acquire self-defense skills and be introduced to the combat mindset with the opportunity to practice your skills in a variety of situations. All Gunsite instructors are world-class rangemasters and coaches, and the facility is the best of the best. Upon completion of this class, you’ll be able to recognize and avoid or deal with a real-life threat. Past class participants call this experience “life-changing” and are grateful for the newfound confidence and ability to overcome fear of firearms.

“This course brought my competence and confidence with firearms to a whole new level. To practice my shooting with likeminded women and the incredible instructors at Gunsite was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to do it again!” – Donna Head

MAY 30 & 31 — 8:00 AM–4:00 PM
