Handgun Speed & Precision – Mesa, AZ

Date(s) - 12/11/2022

Rio Salado Sportsman's Club

Handgun Speed & Precision is perfect for the civilian, military, LEO shooter, or competitor who wants to develop their speed and precision from the holster, either concealed or open carry. This is excellent for those who seek to refine in both areas beyond where most training goes, working from either duty gear or from concealment.
This course intended for those who already have a decent to high degree of skill in basic handgun fundamentals, although we will spend time there as needed.

Of note, if you’ve not attended a pervious course with us or do not demonstrate solid proficiency at the beginning of this training course, the instructor can and will, at their discretion, ask you to complete a short proficiency handling and shooting test that is standardized. If that test is not passed, you will not be allowed to attend the rest of the training but will be invited to move into one of our Handgun Fundamentals courses at no cost. At the same time, the fee for this course will not be refunded.

We’ll start at 8:30 am at the Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club in Training Bay 1 and end around 5 pm. Training Bay 1 is near the Shotgun area of the range, with a large covered area and large log walls next to it. Parking is in the parking lot in front of  Bay 1 & 2.

Range Fee:
There is also a Range Fee of $15 that will need to be paid in cash prior to the start of the course, so please bring that with you.

As the title says, this day will focus on going fast and being highly accurate. We’ll start with high accuracy and move into adding speed from the holster, as a fast, accurate first round on target from a holster is necessary in a defense of life situation.
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.

If you want to get a holster for before this class, feel free to contact us (Adam @ 970-986-0774) and we’ll help you select a high-quality holster versus the many less-than-good holsters in all the local gun stores. We are also huge fans of Haven Defense Co. holsters (www.HavenDefenseCo.com), a holster-making company local to the Colorado Western Slope.

This will be a thoughtful, careful training session in order to build skill. 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, excellent and speedy draw strokes, and high precision, both up close and at extreme distances.
