Handgun Speed & Accuracy – Ramah, CO

Date(s) - 09/18/2022

Ben Lomond Gun Range

Handgun Speed & Accuracy is perfect for the shooter who wants develop their speed and accuracy from the holster, either concealed or open carry. This is excellent for the LEO who wants to really refine in both areas far beyond where most LE training goes, working from either duty gear or from plain clothes assignments. This course intended for those who already have a decent degree of skill in basic handgun fundamentals, although we will spend time there when and where needed to refine skills.
Training with a handgun from concealment is recommended but open carry is also just fine, especially for those with duty or competition gear.

This training event will be a thoughtful, careful training session in order to build skill at explosive speeds with accuracy and maintain it during the varying courses of fire. We will be focused completely on getting the objectives of this class exactly right and repeatable for each shooter, with expert nuisances built into grip, stance, platform, excellent and speedy draw strokes, and high precision, both up close and at distance. We will also have a focus on helping the students to understand how to diagnose their own work so they can continue refining their abilities long after this class.

As the title says, this day will focus on building the ability to get a fast first shot from the holster, and then follow up shots, while also being as accurate as the varying targets dictate.  We’ll work on high accuracy first, then build in speed that is efficient in technique.
A quality holster is a must in this course, so if you aren’t sure if your holster is of decent to good quality, contact us as soon as possible, because if you need a good holster, it will take some time to order one and get it shipped to you.

We’ll start at 8:30 am at the Ben Lomond Gun Club in Competition Bay #1 and end around 5 pm, depending on several factors such as weather, temperatures, etc.
There is a Range Fee charged for BLGC of $20 per person that will be collected in cash before the beginning of the class, so please bring that range fee with you.
BLGC address:
23195 County Rd. 105, Ramah, CO 80832
