Mastering Handgun Speed, Accuracy & Movement – Cameo, CO

Date(s) - 05/01/2023

Cameo Shooting & Educational Complex

This is intended for the wonderful ladies of AG&AG, thus there is a discounted rate ONLY for them or their families.
This is also OPEN the public but at the normal rate.

Mastering 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.

We’ll start at 9 am at the Cameo Shooting & Education Complex, in Bay 10, and end around 5 pm’ish, depending on weather and safety issues. Cameo is about fifteen minutes east of Grand Junction, CO, off of I-70 Exit 45 and across the Colorado River.

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 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.

If you want to get a holster for before this class, feel free to contact us (Adam @ 970-986-0774) OR Brent Hickmon of Haven Defense CO. ( / 970-987-3471) and we’ll help you select a high-quality holster versus the less-than-good ones in all the local gun stores.

Doing this course from concealment is recommended but open carry is also just fine for those with duty or competition gear.

This will be a thoughtful, careful training session in order to build skill at explosive speeds. 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.
