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.
Simulators were beyond outstanding. Joe 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’ Seasoned Citizen 250. I can’t do a regular class anymore. This Seasoned Citizen Carbine brought me back to Gunsite.
The greatest strengths were the wealth of experience the instructors brought to the task. The patient insistence of the instructors. consistency of info from instructor to instructor. Tone established and maintained by support staff. Cost is a drawback but I believe the quality and nature of skills obtained is more valuable than the cost. General overall tone of professionalism and competence.
I am writing this to you to thank you and the entire GunSite staff for the excellent inaugural 250s class last week. I can truly say this was one of the best times of my life, and one of the best investments I have ever made. The whole staff are consummate professionals, the instructors themselves standing out of course. I was extremely impressed with their level of knowledge, experience, training abilities, and excellent focus on safety. They watched us like Hawks and reacted immediately and…
My Gunsite 250 pistol experience was life changing! The instructors make the school… the support staff is first rate and the facilities are tops! I came to Gunsite through the generosity of Mrs. Cooper and her daughters, as a Jeff Cooper Legacy Foundation Scholarship recipient. I will be back because the training I received may well save lives, possibly my own. Gunsite and the legacy of Colonel Cooper has inspired me to enroll in the municipal police officer training program, at fifty years of a…
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.
I am writing to offer my thanks and appreciation for the fine job that your entire staff did last week for the Gunsite 270 rifle course. Mike Moore is one of the most outstanding instructors I have had the privilege to train with, he was extremely knowledgeable, and presented the material in an easy to learn and practice method. Walt Wilkenson is a true asset to Gunsite and I couldn’t imagine training at Gunsite without Walt there, he also is an extremely knowledgeable and outstanding instructor…
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…
My wife and I recently took the # 270 General Rifle Class with Rangemaster Mike Moore and Instructors Walt Wilkensen and Gary Smith. We were a class of 10 people with a vast array of backgrounds. My wife and I are Gunsite Alumni and have been to several other classes and Tutorials, to state that
Gunsite is a VERY special place is much to subtle, it is the most outstanding school of it’s type in the world! Due to my previous career I have had the opportunity to have trained all over the world, G…
Instructors are exceptional at handling beginners and advanced shooters all at the same time. Regardless of shooter ability, all three instructors were excellent at fixing problems, improving skills, and getting the best performance out of each shooter.
Since we were traveling extensively in a motor home the staff recommend that the shotgun may be the preferred defensive weapon for our situation. So, we decided to stay for a second week and take the 260 Shotgun Class. The 250 Pistol Class made the 260 Shotgun Class easier since we were familiar with the facility and the class format. Both the pistol and shotgun were to be used together in this class. Again, the staff recommended which type and gage of shotgun we should use. As in the pistol cla…
