Handgun Mastery Program

This is our core program. It is designed for anyone with the desire to dramatically improve their shooting performance, whether as defenders, armed professionals, firearms instructors, competitive shooters or legal gun owners.

Our Handgun Mastery Program is the best way to develop your potential. It is the path to being the best shooter you can be – to being the best shooter on your range or on your department. It is the path to mastery.

You can take the initial course once and see amazing benefits. If you so choose, you can return as we help you progress through a series of skills measurements ending, potentially, at becoming among the best in the world. The course program is so exclusive because it is equally relevant for less experienced shooters up to the highest performers in the field. Everyone will gain a level of knowledge appropriate to one’s level of skill and desire. That is one of the reasons, Handgun Mastery is so unique.

We focus not just on shooting skill but also on the knowledge and mindset to improve and gain consistent performance. This program grounds the students solidly in Reactive Shooting Science(tm) with an emphasis on building consistently high performers with a handgun.

Handgun Mastery 1

The Handgun Mastery course uses our proven Scientific Shooting System to combine the science of performance with the best practical shooting concepts in the world. Beginner, intermediate and advanced shooters will realize immediate performance improvement as we unveil the core skills and principles of handgun marksmanship and reactive shooting to a unique level of detail. By building your shooting system, it is important to understand what it takes to fire an accurate shot and then apply the beliefs, principles and techniques that contribute to a successful result. Together we will explore how to fire a shot in minimum time with maximum efficiency and certainty of a hit, using in depth knowledge of the principles, concepts and techniques required. Students will learn how to diagnose their own shooting, identify their mistakes and immediately make corrections applying the Fire Control Triangle and the Reactive Shooting Cycle, which we also called the “algorithm of the shot”.
