Course Title: “Fast is Fine – Accuracy is Everything”

Course Prefix:  FFAE

Course Description:  The name of this class was taken from the Wyatt Earp quote, “Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything. In a gunfight… You need to take your time in a hurry.”

We have all seen the movies with flashy gun play and impossible shots. While entertaining, they are not made as a tutorial for real life. This course was designed to get you the shooter to take your training to a new level of mental discipline in regards to fundamental marksmanship. You will understand not just how to do something but why to do it and how everything works together to make a good shooter, a great shooter.

  • Stance and position (a luxury)
  • Grip – it will cover both 1 and 2 handed grips
  • Presentation – more than just pointing the gun at the bad guy, but more importantly getting the gun to automatically align to your eye naturally every time.
  • Fundamentals – both of them (Aiming and Trigger Control) after all, in the end, they’re all that matters.
  • How to train and analyze what you are doing wrong and how to correct it
  • Most of all it will cover the mental aspect of shooting accurate and development of a shot process in order to become consistent.
