Practical shooting is the fastest growing and most exciting of the shooting sports and PS101 provides you with the information you need to get started.

We begin at 10:00 AM with a class room presentation covering the fundamentals of practical shooting and the gear you need to participate. Lunch is around noon. We typically order pizza or sandwiches but you can also BYO. The presentation continues after lunch and ends around two followed by (weather permitting) a range exercise where students have the opportunity to shoot a course of fire under the supervision of the instructors. We are usually done by 4:00PM but it can go longer if the class is large or we take a long lunch.

You should bring something for taking notes and students wishing to take part in the range exercise will

  • a handgun chambered for one of the common defensive calibers
  • ~100 rounds of ammunition
  • at least two magazines or speed loaders
  • eye and ear protection

If you have a competition rig (belt, holster, magazine pouches) bring it. If you don’t we will find a way to accommodate the equipment you do have.

We shoot outside so dress for the weather. Plan on finishing up around four.
