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 want to thank you for all of the help and guidance you have given me over the course of the past week. As someone with no prior shooting experience, this intensive training course was intimidating and admittedly a bit frustrating for me. Initially, I was worried that the instructors would focus their attention on more skilled shooters, but was amazed to find that you all personally assisted each and every student. Thank you! My dad has been raving about Gunsite ever since he first cam…
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 had zero experience with pistol techniques and drills before this course. As a result of the class I feel a lot more comfortable and confident with my abilities. I really believe it will pay off while making my dealer calls. Many of the customers we visit participate in local pistol events and I can now relate better to them.
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…
The use of the Battle Rifle is best learned by experiencing close physical contact with your rifle in a no nonsense training setting. This course did just that. The four instructors were excellent, very knowledgeable, A plus. They gave each student plenty of individual coaching. Positive instruction at all times was a hallmark of this course. Numerous outdoor training scenarios were presented that the student was given time to master. Safety in the use of a high power battle rifle was the instru…
I just completed the Gunsite 250 Pistol course at the Thunderbird Firearms Academy in Wichita, KS. HOLY COW! I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of the instructors, the facility, and substance of the training. The instructors told us “what” to do, showed us “how” to do it, and also explained “why” it should be done. They even demonstrated some concepts with specific drills, such as the “wobble drill”. These drills removed any doubt I might have had that what they were saying was t…
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 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…
I liked the outstanding help the instructors provided to make me shoot better. On the first day it was a little hard but I managed. Also, the simulators provided a helpful experience to know what to do in a bad situation.
