    Learn to run the gun, so the gun does not run you.


    This 1 day class is made to instill the fundamentals of efficiency and accuracy into the use of your chosen firearm.

    We work with you, your firearm and related equipment with manipulations and drills that are logical and proven to be effective and useful well past the range. No industry standard or watered down content that so often fails to relate to the street.

    We will cover all aspects of manipulations to get you running your platform smoothly, and engaging fast, efficient and accurate. You'll also learn how to disengage slowly and methodical to keep your brain in gear, while utilizing skills to improve overall performance and accuracy. The goal is to drill hard on the skills that it takes to stay focused on the threat without being distracted by the platform.  You will understand how the brain works in taking in the information and properly absorbing it so that productive execution of the training is maintained.

    John W. - "The class was amazing. WELL WORTH IT! I learned a whole lot in a hurry. Grip, shooting both eyes open and how to be successful in YOUR Gunfight. No-nonsense training that will help you to react correctly under stress and Run your Gun when it matters most.
    I have never had such professional Training before and I can't stress enough how valuable that was.
    Drill, repeat....drill repeat.... drill repeat....and you WILL be better. No fancy gimmick stuff needed, he stresses that. Keep it simple, and repeat it.....a lot.
    I'm still trying to soak it all in.
    You will learn many things rather quickly, and may walk away rethinking your gear and possibly what you carry. I think more than a few did. Thanks to Steve Shields and the other Instructor's, Paul and Katon, they were incredible as well."

    Muzzle Brakes : Due to the possible long term residual effects of their use, from not only the decibel level, but also from the concussion which can lead to possible damage of the inner ear containing an organ which produces nerve impulses in response to sound vibrations, we are no longer allowing them on the range.

    If you remove your brake prior to arriving at our facility, I have standard flash hiders to use at no cost to you. Let me know ahead of time.
