COURSE DESCRIPTION

The 250 Pistol Class was first presented in October 1976 by Colonel Jeff Cooper. This class is “The Gunsite Experience.” Regardless of your age, gender, experience or station in life, upon completion of The Gunsite Experience, your life will change forever. You will be well grounded in the Modern Technique of the Pistol, including marksmanship, gun handling, combat mindset, and the elements of the Combat Triad. Through our systematic and dynamic methodology you will achieve confidence, competence, new skills and best of all, Peace of Mind. Clients emerge stronger, more alert, and conditioned to respond instantly to any threat. You will prevail in any encounter.

The 250 includes five solid days of range work, lectures and intensive indoor and low light, live fire simulators.  You will be in control of your immediate environment. All certificates are graded and many lifelong friends will be identified during this experience.

Skill at arms is a highly perishable skill and recurrent training is a must for the responsible citizen. Should you ever be involved in a life or death situation, the justice system will first question your training. Many clients return annually to take the 250 class as recurrent training.

Completion of  the 250 Pistol Course (The Gunsite Experience) is a prerequisite for many other courses.
