Handgun Proficiency Workshop
A shooter is only as good as their practice. Your handgun education shouldn’t stop once you’ve learned the basics. The Handgun Proficiency Workshop is the next step in your training. Students of all levels are encouraged to join us! Beginners and experienced shooters alike will find new ways to sharpen their skills in class.
Students who join us for this 4-hour workshop will be able to:
- Demonstrate the proper stance for addressing the target
- Self-evaluate proper hand placement related to the grip of the handgun
- Use proper sight picture and sight alignment
- Understand how to work through challenges with corrected vision (optional)
- Use proper trigger control in relation to breathing, pressing the trigger, follow through to control recoil, and improved recovery time when firing multiple rounds
- Perform a self-analysis of their target results and correct what may be causing inaccuracies of shot placement
