Course Description - Competition Shooting Speed Skills (Level 1-5)
Maintaining accuracy with speed & target transitions
- Students in this class will build speed in shooting across multiple targets while maintaining accuracy, including while moving into and out of shooting positions. Fast target transitions are required to be successful at any type of timed shooting competition from bowling pins to USPSA matches, and is the most difficult skill to master for most shooters. Many factors are at play when transitioning across targets, including visual patience, sight tracking, and shot calling. This class is appropriate for any shooter who is either preparing for their first competition or a current competitor who wishes to shoot faster. Individual student goals will be set based upon current skill level. This is not a "beginner" class specifically, if you are an experienced USPSA competitor you will be pushed to a higher level of performance. If you are a new competitor, you will begin to build the skills needed for higher level performance as you gain more experience.
- Gear Requirements:
- Center-Fire handgun .380 (9mm) caliber or larger
- Minimum 2 magazines
- 200 rounds of ammunition (available for sale at the range if you need extra)
- Open-top or competition style belt-mounted holster (no top retention strap) is optional
- Your own eye and ear protection that you will use in competition
Students must have basic gun handling and marksmanship skills in order to effectively engage in this course. Prior competition experience is NOT required specifically, but those with competition experience will be put in a position to improve their existing skill base. This course is appropriate for students in skill levels 1-5 (see skill level descriptions).
YES - This course is designed to be repeated as many times as the student would like, standards for speed and accuracy will be set based upon the student's current skill level and returning students who have shown improvement since the last class will continue to be pushed to a higher level of performance. There are NO LIMITS to the level of skill you can achieve by focusing on these basic building blocks.
This is THE CLASS that an experienced competitor can continue to revisit regularly as they progress in the sport to refine and build the skills to take them to the next level. From newer competitors to successful competitors, there is ALWAYS more to learn and refine in your skill set.
