250 Pistol Class
This class is “The Gunsite Experience” and was first presented in October 1976 by Colonel Jeff Cooper.
Regardless of your age, gender or experience, completing the 250 class will change your life! You will be well grounded in the ‘Modern Technique of the Pistol’, including marksmanship, gun handling and mindset.

Students emerge stronger, more alert, and conditioned to respond appropriately to any threat.
