If you’ve ever wondered why Jeff and Janelle Cooper picked the land in Paulden to establish their American Pistol Institute, today known as Gunsite Academy the month of August makes it an obvious choice. The monsoon season in Northern Arizona this year produced beautiful green foliage, cool mornings and perfect afternoons. The antelope are hanging out at the S curve on Gunsite road , the jack rabbits are thick, and the road runners are everywhere. It has been great weather for training.
There are a few openings left in the Pocket Pistol class Sept. 27-28, and the 250 Pistol class beginning on September 30th, just before the GAS Match. Since you are here for GAS stay and take the 499 the week after the GAS Match
October has plenty of training opportunities during one of the best weather months of the year!
Battle Rifle is a must for those of you with 7.62/.308 battle rifles.. Bring your SCAR Heavy, FAL, AR10, Colt 901, M1, M1A, SOCOM or any other similar platform to this outstanding class.
