About Us


Located in Omaha, Nebraska

Midwest Competitive Shooting LLC (MCS Training) was formed to train handgun shooters at all levels for improved performance using the techniques utilized in handgun competition shooting.  We always did a little training "on the side" for friends and fellow competitors but have now taken the next step to formalizing our training curriculum and establishing vendor relationships for training facilities, training-related product sales and more.  Whether you are new to competition training techniques or an experienced competitor who wants to elevate your performance to the next level, we can help!

Our Lead Instructor:

He has achieved the highest possible classification in USPSA competition of Grand Master in the Production division, and is a regionally and nationally competitive shooter. Joel is well-known in USPSA competition shooting circles for his regular appearance on prominent national weekly shooting podcasts and his work with the Practical Shooting Training Group. Affectionately known as "GMJP" by friends and colleagues, Joel is always excited to share his knowledge and experience with students. Joel has also earned certification as a Range Officer by the National Range Officers Institute, and conducts training classes nationwide for competition shooters, as well as military and law enforcement agencies.
