Thumbs up Handgun training in the San Francisco Bay Area Saturday October 26th

Let us help you get better at shooting.

Shooting is fun. It's more fun if you're good. Our Pistol Principles program is designed for anyone who'd like to get serious about their shooting.

What we are not: tactical fantasy band camp.

What we are: committed to showing our students how to be safe, fast and accurate with a handgun.

Pistol Principles 1
Saturday, October 26th.

Prerequisites: none.

This is the starting place for anyone who wants to get good at shooting, even if you have taken a course from somewhere else. We cover safety, the draw and a very heavy emphasis on the fundamentals of marksmanship.

Classes are being held outdoors on action pistol bay 5 at the Richmond Rod and Gun Club, which is 40 minutes north of San Francisco. Classes will convene rain or shine.

Student equipment list:

*Positive attitude, willingness to learn.
*Pocket size notebook, pen, and Sharpie marker.
*At least 1 reliable handgun, preferably full size, chambered in 380/9/357/40/10/45, with the ability to hold at least 10 rounds.
*Know the zero of your handgun with the ammo you plan to bring.
*Quality holster that does not require a trigger finger button actuation to release pistol (no Serpa, Sigtac), and maintains rigidity when pistol is removed (no nylon, suede, or other soft material), worn outside of the pants on the belt at approximately 3 o'clock.
*A rigid belt specifically designed to carry the weight of a loaded firearm.
*At least 1 magazine pouch (2+ preferred).
*At least 3 magazines (5+ preferred).
*400 rounds of quality ammunition that you have verified works in your handgun.
*Ear and eye protection, sunscreen and ball cap.
*Clothing/footwear suitable for a day hike (check forecast) .
*Lunch, snacks and water. We will have a short, working lunch and will not have time leave the facility to pick up food.

*T3 Pros FAQs*

Q: "What is the background of the instructor?"
A: Lead instructor is a former SWAT cop and current USPSA Master class shooter.

Q: "Are these tactical or competition oriented classes?"
A: These are "get gooder at shooting" classes. How you apply those skills is up to you.

Q: "I've never been to a shooting class before, is it run like a boot camp or police academy?"
A: You are treated like students and clients, not like soldiers or cadets. We want everyone to have fun while they're learning.

Q: "How much is the range fee?"
A: Range fee is included in the ticket price.

Q: "How much of the class is spent shooting?"
A: Approximately 1 hour of seated lecture, the rest of the time the class will be broken into 2 groups alternating on the firing line.

Q: "I'm not ready to take a class yet, I need to practice more first. Will you be doing the same classes next year?"
A: Pistol Principles 1 is a fundamentals class, there are no prerequisites. Practicing on your own without guidance could be reinforcing poor habits or techniques that you will have to unlearn later.

Probably not. Richmond is a great range and we are lucky enough to have an entire shooting bay to ourselves.

Our students are dedicated and some drive in from Sacramento, El Dorado Hills, Fresno, San Jose, Milpitas. Just set your alarm for 7AM, and be out of the driveway by 7:30.
