As a 3 Gun & Multi-Gun Match Director and competitor the last nine years Tom sees most shooters struggle with pistol accuracy when shooting various targets under pressure. If all you’ve ever done is shoot at single stationary paper targets, then this is a whole new world. The second most witnessed weakness is shooting shotguns rapidly and on the move. Most students do well with accurately shooting carbines but struggle controlling muzzle movement to improve speed and accuracy. In this clinic you get to work on individual gun skills the first half of the class then apply the proper fundamentals while shooting an actual shooting stage used in a competition. You learn how to engage all targets in a stage with the least amount of movement and performing any operation of your gun you can while moving to save time. If you have been shooting 3 Gun or Multi-Gun matches and not performing as well as you would like this clinic will help you get to the next level. Tom will also offer tips on setting up your guns and equipment to enable you to be more competitive.
