“I really enjoyed the class, especially since there were only a few students. Not only did I learn how to be a better shooter, but I learned more about the actual gun, the ammunition and how to deal with real-life situations.”
- AT/Alpine

“This class was outstanding. Above & beyond my expectations. I feel I am able to speak more knowledgeable when engaging in conversation. I am highly recommending this class to any of my female friends that show an interest in learning to shoot or become better.”
- DS/Phoenix

“My fear of guns was alleviated, so the actual shooting was beneficial and knowing that the gun will not go off by itself was a relief.” - JY/Show Low

"Excellent course, great for basic knowledge on gun safety and usage."
IL/Show Low

“I want to thank you so much for the class we took. You don’t know how reassuring it was to hear that we were doing it right. We may not have been doing it their way but then again we aren’t built like the guys are. My husband does not understand why my attitude changed from not sure what I am doing to knowing damn well what I am doing. I like the change and he isn’t sure.”
LH/Camp Verde

“Linda’s instruction was a perfect balance of lecture, demonstration, practice, DVD, discussion. I appreciate that Linda offered additional practice sessions and I know I can call her for help in anything associated with the basics of pistol shooting.”

DC/Overgaard

“The instructor (Linda) was great. She was a great example of a strong woman.”
- AH/Show Low

- RF/Overgaard

"This was the best 8 hours I've spent in a long time! Thanks so much." ~ SR/Show Low, AZ

"Your course re-energized my enthusiasm about shooting. Now, I want to practice more, get a trigger-job on my .38 S&W, maybe even buy another handgun . . . a girl can never own too many guns!! Thanks Again!" ~ MC/Show Low, AZ

“Great one-on-one help. Linda & Seth were super instructors! I loved it!” RC/Vernon

“I knew I was going to learn something but I didn’t think I was going to learn so much and have so much fun doing it.” DM/Show Low

Shooting With One Eye or Two Eyes Open: Which is Correct?

The Problem: You have just completed a class at a nationally known shooting academy where you learned a lot of good techniques that improved your shooting. One technique you could not quite grasp, however, was the instructors insisting you keep both eyes open to see the sights properly in order to place precision shots on the target.

 

5 Things to Master for Weak-Side Shooting

Mastering our shooting skills comes in two distinct phases. The first is gaining the fundamentals that allow us to hit our target consistently and accurately. Once that becomes second nature, we need to turn to application training. This is especially true for defensive handgun work. In short, we need to learn how to fight with our handgun. This means training in low light, around obstructions and even with one hand at times. It is this last skill that can be most challenging. The reasons for doing this range from training to shoot with a potential injury or even if you are holding someone to protect them. 

 

Single-Handed Shooting - Why Practice It?

It all started with police dash-cam videos.

Then came increasingly ubiquitous security cameras, and now body cameras are becoming common for law enforcement. With this vast increase in available cameras, more and more legitimate defensive-shooting incidents are being captured on video. It’s common enough that there are entire YouTube channels dedicated to doing detailed “lessons learned”-type reviews of the footage found on the web.

 

Gun Rights Made All the Difference for These Would Be Victims

Contrary to the rhetoric of many gun control advocates, the Second Amendment’s protection of the individual right to keep and bear arms is not a malevolent, outdated barricade to peace that must be demolished or diminished in the name of public safety.

Rather, the Second Amendment is a fundamental part of the nation’s scheme of ordered liberty.

 

Range Drills: Work Smarter, Not Harder

Today, we know how to get the most results with the least wasted work. We don’t have to burn truckloads of ammunition to get good. We practice various drills. But, there is a downside to drills in shooting, just as there was (and still is) a downside to practicing forms, and patterns, in the martial arts.

The downside? You do what you practice.

 

Right For You: Ladies Pistol Project 3 Results

It bears repeating: Women have joined in legion the ranks of millions of handgun owners, and continue to be the fastest-growing demographic in the firearm industry. Whether our motive is personal protection, home defense or because a dormant sense of empowerment has emerged, matters not. This is not a fleeting trend, nor is it a momentary hashtag movement.

Back to Basics: Understanding Handgun Actions

When it comes to handgun operation, there seems to remain a nearly constant misinterpretation. One that occasionally pops up like fingernails on a blackboard to any gunner worth his or her salt is the semi-automatic revolver.

 

Detroit Women Given Chance to Empower and Arm Themselves

It began as a response to a series of murdered women eight years ago in the City of Detroit, and a desire to see women protect themselves and no longer be the victims of criminals.

Rick Ector has been conducting free classes through his training organization Legally Armed In Detroit (LAID) for women to learn to protect themselves and get familiar with a firearm. Ector recently held a training May 19 in Taylor, Mich., at Top Gun Shooting Sports.

 

Top 5 Reasons for Women to Start Shooting

Now is an ideal time for women to become gun owners. The firearms industry has changed in recent years due to greater numbers of women realizing that the market has adapted to suit their needs. Ladies who wish to master the art of shooting should be aware of the unique advantages now available to them.

Split-Second Self-Defense: Acting Quickly in an Attack

Colonel Jeff Cooper, founder of Gunsite Academy, often told the story of an acquaintance in South America who stepped out of his front door to see three armed men running towards him at close range. Cooper’s friend quickly drew his pistol and took down all three attackers. As I recall the story, he did this before any of the three men could get a shot off.
