About The Course


You don’t learn how to handle a firearm shooting on the range, you learn in a classroom or in a dry environment. There are seven fundamentals of marksmanship that we will bring together from the ground up. We also need to expect the worst and provision for it. Murphy’s law tends to rear its head in a gunfight. So we will teach you how to react to these situations instinctively. Not only will we rehearse the “dance” or the choreography of the gunfight, we will bring it all together though repetitions and practice!! And lots of them. So expect a workout! And expect results! Watch how private handgun training improved these Miami and Fort Lauderdale students abilities with a handgun. And you don’t have to  take our word for it, check out the testimonials page for more videos and other online reviews.
