Aegis Academy's Basic Handgun Course or weekend Basic Handgun Series is designed to ingrain solid marksmanship fundamentals and teach you how to develop sound habits that will enable you to perform at peak levels in the future. For new shooters, this course will give you the ability to walk onto any range in the country and practice your skills safely, accurately, and effectively. More importantly, you will have a professionally developed program that will enable you to build and advance your skills over the long term. After just three days in the course, you will find yourself shooting better than most of the "experienced" shooters you see at the local range. For experienced shooters who are having difficulty performing at the top of their game, this is the place to identify and break through the plateau that is limiting you from reaching your full potential! Our experienced mentors will work closely with you to identify and correct the issues that are slowing you down.
"The actual training material was outstanding, both in class and on the range. The information helped me strengthen my understanding of guns and ownership. The progressive build up of drills helped me to understand not just how to shoot, but how to become an accurate and precise shot. It is rare to find professional, compassionate, realistic, practical, approachable, studious, respectful, humble and character building training in any field. I am ever so thankful that in my first gun training experience I received a high level of all of the above from Aegis."
"This course easily taught me more than all the other courses I have taken combined. Jumping into the intermediate course would have been a huge mistake, I would have only cheated myself of a ton of classroom knowledge, not learned the tricks Chris taught me to tighten my groups, and been totally lost running the Aegis Drills at the higher level."
