What is Pistol Essentials?

At Wilson Brothers Armory we define Pistol Essentials as the key fundamentals needed to effectively and proficiently use your pistol.

What can I expect attending the Pistol Essentials class?

We will complete an initial assessment to establish a baseline of each individuals skill level and identify any deficiencies. We will work closely with each student to assist with correcting those deficiencies and improving upon overall skills through detailed instruction and shooting drills. By the end of the class students will walk away with knowing what skills they do well and what skills they need to work on and how to work on them. This class will be held at an outdoor private range, 2 to 1 ratio instructor to student, and shooter driven.
