Gunsite Academy has been dubbed the “Harvard of Handguns,” and with good reason.
Founded by Col. Jeff Cooper as the American Pistol Institute in 1976 to teach the Modern Technique of the Pistol, this shooting school in the high desert outside Paulden, Arizona is home to a cadre of incredibly-talented firearms instructors. Gunsite teaches everyone from first-time shooters, to hard-core competitors, to law enforcement and military special operations forces… and even royalty.
Gunsite’s signature course is 250 Pistol, which for 39 years has been the most influential handgun course in the United States if not the world, shaping the doctrine of how to fight with a handgun for militaries, police, and civilians. I graduated 250 Pistol last August, and went back to Paulden last week for 350 Intermediate Pistol.
Continuing “The Gunsite Experience”: 350 is the natural progression in the Modern Technique of the Pistol.
Move! The 350 course focuses on movement- You will not be standing still on the line as everything will be done with different types of movement. Getting off the line of attack, shoot then move, move then shoot, continuous movement and moving targets hi light the week!
