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.
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…
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…
I just had to write a little bit about a great course I just finished. On March 17, 2017, I completed the Gunsite 250 Defensive Pistol class at Colonial Shooting Academy in Richmond, VA. What a class! Five (5) days filled with instruction and shooting on a variety of topics. Lot’s of shooting to reinforce the topics. We covered reloads (tactical and speed), malfunctions (all types with practical exercises), shooting drills for score, the El Presidente drill, the failure drill, low light, no ligh…
After spending a week at Gunsite Academy for the Alumni Shoot and a five-day class, I was heading home tired but happy. I pulled off the interstate at a truck stop to get a cup of coffee and find my iPad (gotta have music to keep me awake.) Because I needed to open car doors to rummage through my gear, I parked nose-in at the side of the main building where there was space and no activity. Behind my car was a large open paved area with no vehicles. It was morning and I casually scanned …
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…
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.
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 …
I really enjoyed the opportunity to attend the class at Gunsite. After years of pistol shooting I found I am still learning. The instructors did a great job handling all skill levels. I felt it was the best “Team-Building” exercise I have ever been a part of.
This Long Range Rifle course really challenged me. I am the lead LE Instructor for SWAT and I was truly humbled by this course. The instructors knowledge and understanding with the course’s lesson plans was amazing. Gordon Shugart Ridge
When I first attended a class at Gunsite my boyfriend at the time said I want to give you a class at Gunsite for your vacation. I said I wanted to go to Hawaii. He promised to take me to Hawaii if I took my 250 Class at Gunsite. Upon graduation from my 250 pistol class I now longer wanted to go to Hawaii but wanted to take my next class at Gunsite. I eventually went to Hawaii but not before I was a well trained pistolero.
