You can use the time to practice your tactical skills or just target shooting, to practice drawing from a holster, test a new favorite firearm, gear or ammo, practice your trigger control or quick reloads or just to sight your gun.

You set the pace under the guidance of a certified instructor to ensure safety and to offer assistance if needed, just bring your gun, ammo and gear. I’ll guarantee you, this will be a lot more fun than shooting paper targets at your local range.
