Suarez Intl. Point Shooting Progressions - Searsboro, IA

I've been wanting to take this class since I lived Back East, something always came up when these were being held but Roger is coming to Iowa and I'll finally get the opportunity to take this class.

 Hope to see some familiar faces there. Click the link below for more information/registration.


April 21-22, 2012 - Point Shooting Progressions - Searsboro, IA

Instructor: Roger Phillips

Experience has proven beyond any argument that the traditional shooting range methods are simply not suitable for reactive gunfighting. In this course you will learn the "Fight Continuum" detailing exactly when point shooting is suitable, how far to extend the pistol to the threat, the various visual indexes, the combat draw and other life saving skills that will have you shooting at speeds previously considered impossible. This material is comprised from material from virtually every threat focused shooting system in existence and refined to fit into a simple progression of instruction. This course distills it all into one well thought out and extremely applicable system that dovetails neatly into the regular Close Range Gunfighting matrix, presenting the full aspect of the integration of sighted and unsighted fire at CQB distances.

We must point out that THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR THE NOVICE SHOOTER. If you have not received basic instruction, or have a question about your skill level, please call us first.
