All private classes are scheduled as needed. Please call to arrange the class, 757-613-3401, or contact me for assistance.
If you have needs beyond Basic Pistol courses and would like private training, we’d be happy to discuss with you how we can team up with you to develop a course for you, or refer you to existing courses.
If you have a special group larger than two students, an alternative classroom will be scheduled if possible. Due to government mandated social distancing, our space may need to be adjusted. Additional NRA Certified Instructors may be brought in to assist us.
We use dry fire training with a Shot Indicating Resetting Trigger (SIRT) Training Pistol may help you to diagnose and refine your skills. The SIRT gun is inert, and therefore versatile, as you can achieve good trigger time in a classroom or at home. In our classes we may use the SIRT gun to help you get on target before the range, and diagnose issues where we can discuss the results without any range noise or any ammunition present. This tool is great for identifying proper trigger and muzzle control.
Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program
Will you accept the challenge?
The Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program is produced by the Education and Training Division of the NRA. This rewarding program is an excellent training and skills development program that is self-paced, providing a solid background of developing fundamentals of shooting. Each program level stretches your abilities with new challenges in timing and accuracy. This program is a logical transition from the NRA Basic Pistol Course, as it refines your best practices and encourages fluidity in safe and proper gun handling.
We offer coaching, or to act as your final NRA witness in the Distinguished Exert rating level.
Would you like your friend, spouse, or relative to be more successful with safe gun handling? A gift certificate for a class or for assistance toward the price of a class, may be just the thing they’d like to have.

Mastering you Pistol Marksmanship
by Gabby Franco
Olympian, Firearms Instructor, Competitor and Author.
The first time I saw Gabby Franco shoot was on Season 4 of “All Stars” TOP SHOT. Hers is not so much a book, but a manual, sized for your range bag! Gear, caliber, shooting stance and mind-set are only a few things she discusses in detail in her book. Gabby reviews common problems shooters have and offers possible solutions as well as practice drills and even has a few targets for each exercise she recommends.
