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.
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.
10 years ago my wife and I took the three pistol classes and the edged weapons class. Except for the bruises from the edged weapons class we extremely enjoyed the experience. Fast forward a year and my wife is accosted in a parking lot. Due to the circumstances she was in condition orange. Moments later the attacker was lying on the ground in a pool of apple juice from a broken gallon glass jug. Police arrested a repeat offender. 250 training at its best. Fast forward 6 months and I am in the …
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…
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 true. …
350 Pistol March 19-23, 2012What I most appreciate is that these courses teach and the instructors don’t act like drill sergeants. These three guys were extremely aware of the details and kept at us each time we made errors. I was really impressed at the depth of explanations and experience we got from Jerry. Chris and Jay were incredible additions and Chris showed us flawless form. I feel truly fortunate I had these three instructors, they made it enjoyable.The genuine concern…
Not knowing anything about the handgun before this week and leaving Guniste feeling safe, responsible and a good shooter. I can’t wait to be here for Gunsite’s 80th birthday. Thank you for a life changing and inspiring fun week.
I came here with little to no pistol experience and found the training to be quite thorough. The instructors built a much better shooting foundation than I ever could have found anywhere else. The information was useful, and accurate ad the quality of instruction was exemplary.
Simulators were beyond outstanding. Joe Knapp was the best instructor in a shoot house I have had in over 20 years. Everyone was helpful and professional. I want to return to Gunsite for the ‘Old Fart” 250. (Seasoned Citizen 250) I can’t do a regular class anymore. This brought me back to Gunsite.
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.
The greatest strengths were the instructors. Linguists say there are more than 5000 languages and dialects in the world. If I were to write down all the words such as “superlative” and “excellent” and “marvelous” in all those languages that would still be inadequate to describe the skill and helpfulness of all the instructors. I appreciate all the hidden work performed by the support staff as well.
