Description

In this 7-hour Pistol Proficiency class you’ll learn techniques to master stance, grip and vision based on a principled approach for practical value and defensive utility. Geared toward intermediate to experienced shooters, you’ll run more complex drills that focus on close to farther distances, up to 30 yards, shooting on the move, speed and transitions. You’ll develop your capabilities to run your gun aggressively with accountability.

You’ll be engaged actively in self-diagnosing your targets, giving you a tool to enhance your practice and drive development.

You’ll work with Gino Giliotti at the Lebanon County Police Combat Pistol Club in Lebanon County, PA, a natural outdoor environment that allows for effective training. Classes are capped at 5 students for maximum reps, individualized feedback and coaching. You’ll develop repeatable skills for on-demand performance.

This class is not for beginners. It’s geared to shooters who can demonstrate a higher level of competency in pistol shooting and gun handling.
