Fundamentals of Shooting Course

Does your target look like this?

If so, we can definitely help!  Sadly, we know several people would be happy with this level of shooting.  Carrying a firearm is an awesome responsibility and when lives are at stake, accuracy matters!  Imagine taking a head shot at 25 feet when someone has a gun to your loved one’s head, still think the above target looks pretty good?

In this 4 hour course, we pick up where the Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit ends.  We teach real fundamentals of marksmanship with a combination of classroom presentations, classroom drills, and ultimately live fire.  We guarantee you will improve your skills during our course!
