Pistol Kick-Start

One-day instruction on pistol shooting fundamentals

This course is ideal for beginners to properly  learn the fundamentals of shooting. The course is equally well suited for more experienced shooters who suffer from gaps in the basic techniques and therefore experience difficulties to improve further.

Success in shooting builds on a few basic skills, similar to a wall built with layers of bricks on top of each other. If the lower brick layers have gaps, the stability of the whole structure is compromised and the possible height and strength of the wall are consequently limited.

The fundamentals do not change whether you are a novice or a master. Building on solid basics is always a worthwhile investment!
