Gunsite offers firearm training to elite military personnel, law enforcement officers and free citizens of the US.
We knowledgeable Americans take our rights very seriously, and the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States guarantees each citizen the right to keep and bear arms. However, with each right comes an equal responsibility to discharge that right effectively, legally, safely and within the bounds of morality. Rights demand responsibility.
Owning a piano does not make one a pianist any more than owning a handgun makes one a good shooter. Only an effective, safe and authoritative program of study can guarantee that in a moment of danger YOU will act to protect yourself, your loved ones or the ones you are sworn to with self defense firearms training skills.
I took the 250 when it was offered in the mid-90s. In fact, because using a firearm was such a new world to me, I took the 250 twice to make sure I was comfortable, solid and safe with the basics. Money well spent! I’d encourage any woman interested in learning the safe, competent use of a serious firearm to take this course regardless of her age or background. Stepping into an all-male gun-owners’ world was a little daunting for a middle-aged leftie woman in a very left wing area who was worki…
Gunsite was a fantastic learning experience as well as team building opportunity. I was amazed at how much I learned and how much more comfortable I am shooting and handling my M&P. I feel the trip enhanced my skills and will make me more authoritative in my presentation to both dealers and consumers.
This past week at Gunsite I experienced the best handgun training that I had received to date, as well as one of the funniest. This past week definitely took my shooting level up a few steps, and helped me build my confidence not only shooting the M&P, but being able to show and demonstrate to consumers and dealers why the M&P is the BEST handgun on the market. As with anything, the more knowledge one has on a product the better they can sell that product, this class was very beneficial in that …
This is essentially my first shooting experience and I entered the course with high anxiety. The instructors were incredibly calm and patient and I’m leaving with zero anxiety about carrying and/or shooting a loaded pistol.
I just took a great class on Saturday (LRR Range Day). The nice thing about it is that it is only one day on Saturday. This means it much easier to fit into the daily rat race. I also understand that this is the first time this has been tried. I absolutely would do it again anytime you make it available. The instructors, Gary, Mike and occasionally Walt were great, as usual. Ranging using my scopes reticle (MOA) went better than when I took the LRR class a couple of years ago. At least …
Instructors were actually concerned about teaching the student. Many times instructors are more concerned about telling you how great they are instead of providing information to the student. This was definitely not the case with this course. Great job Instructors/Gunsite!!!
I just took possession of my new Gunsite Colt and the applied grips, it looks and feels fabulous. Tommorw I clean it then on to the range with my son on Saturday to begin my 250 best practices. I just can not say enough positive things regarding the quality of training, the hospitality of all instructors and personel and the first rate quality of the training grounds. We are coming back in a few months for GAS, and hope to return with both sons next year for his 250 class and our 350 class. Ag…
This past week I had the good fortune to be participating in a Pistol & Carbine Special Tutorial run by Walt Wilkinson and Chris Weare. The course was truly excellent due to the superb competence and professionalism of these two excellent Range masters. Everyone in the class learned at least one or two important particulars to improve their shooting and fine tune their appropriate situation awareness/responsiveness. In my opinion, for a student, it is significantly helpful to see techniques verb…
When we examined the bull, I found that my first shot took him about a third of the way up the shoulder, in line with the front leg. The second hit him a bit higher in the other shoulder. The entrance from the first bullet and the exit from the second were about 6 inches apart. I credit my shooting to your instruction followed by a good deal of serious practice. You taught me what to expect and how to handle it. All I had to do was keep my head and not do something stupid. The four months of pre…
Gents: Good morning. I want to tell you that I got great value out of the recent Carbine Range Day, which was held at Gunsite on Saturday, March 17th, 2017. It was an excellent refresher, touching on all the major teaching points from the 223 class. Instructor Gary Smith did a great job, and Coaches Pete Feeney and Chris Currie were both fantastic. They kept things moving well, and presented the material in a very professional and informative manner. You can get a lot by practicing on y…
