Pistol Intensive Weekend:
Day One: Advanced Recoil Management
(TD2 is sold separately; please see our website or Eventbrite page to register for TD2)



The Pistol Intensive Weekend is designed for individuals who are interested in dramatically increasing their pistol skills and performance a brief, concentrated timeframe. PIW is appropriate for student shooters in any chosen context: private-citizen concealed carry, home defense, law-enforcement/duty purposes, and the shooting sports. The emphasis of the instruction is on increasing applied speed and accuracy with carry guns rather than on tactical or scenario-based exercises. We believe that “running the gun” faster than one thought possible while maintaining life-saving accuracy is achievable for the motivated student and that confidence with one’s pistol comes from the competence this demanding coursework will instill. The program of instruction is comprised of two one-day courses which may be taken individually (8+ hours each) or back-to-back (totaling 16+ hours).

Part of our method is that PIW courses are necessarily high round-count training (+/-1250 per day, +/-2500 for both days) in order to ingrain the new technical components, to reveal and highlight performance areas in need of remediation, and to cover the amount of essential material. Please note that this is not a “spray and pray” environment, but rather one of intensive scrutiny and accountability for every round fired, just as is the case in the larger world.

There are no formal prerequisites to attendance other than willingness to learn and absolute commitment to safe gunhandling. Please contact either instructor with any questions about individual readiness for the courses. We will challenge you and make you a better shooter.
