2-Day Level-Up Competition Pistol

2-Day Level-Up Competition Pistol

Performance shooting is all about speed and accuracy. Shooting fast isn't that hard, shooting accurately isn't that hard, but combining the two sets the intermediate shooter apart from the novice. Being able to dynamically blend speed and accuracy to meet contextual variables is what defines the advanced performance shooter.


The fundamentals of speed and accuracy are universal in shooting, whether you are carrying a pistol for duty and self defense, or are strictly a performance or competition shooter. While this is class will not be about "tactics" there will be great applications on both sides of the fence. While this class is intended for competitive pistol shooters, it is not a "competition class" in the sense that we will spend the class living within competition rules and learning about different divisions etc. But, if you want to learn how to be faster and more accurate in order to succeed as a competitor this class is for you. The skills we learn will be tested and assessed on USPSA style stages. ​


Primary Areas of Instruction Include

  • Fundamentals deep dive including stance, grip, trigger control, visual processing, the performance draw stroke, and why different styles are ideal for certain individuals and firearms.
  • The formulas of speed vs. accuracy on targets of varying difficulty including differing levels of sight confirmation and trigger control.
  • Stage Planning.
  • Efficient movement between and through shooting positions.
  • Shooting on the Move
  • Advanced Target Transitions including blending transition styles through targets of differing difficulties, and correct prioritizing of speed vs. accuracy on target arrays.
  • Different Styles of the Performance Draw Stroke


IMPORTANT: This class is not intended for beginners, and should not be your first training class. It is critical that students have already built sub-conscious competence with firearms safety and have a firm grasp on the fundamentals of marksmanship. To give an example of recommended skill level, students should have a draw time of below 2 seconds and be able to consistently get A-zone hits at 20 yards. This class is designed to help shooters hone and take an existing skill-set to the next level.
