Pistol Performance

In this 7-hour Pistol Performance class you’ll learn techniques based on a principled approach to refine grip and vision and make you capable of running your gun aggressively and at a high level of performance. Pistol shooting drills will focus on movement, speed and control. Through this process you’ll learn to optimize your strengths, uncover barriers to performance, and apply learnings to raise your skills.

This class is for intermediate to experienced shooters who have a thorough understanding of pistol shooting fundamentals.

You’ll work with Gino Giliotti at the Lebanon County Police Combat Pistol Club in Lebanon County, PA, a natural outdoor environment that allows for effective training. Classes are capped at 5 students so you’ll receive individualized coaching that will accelerate your development and improve your pistol performance. You’ll learn techniques to identify problems that may be limiting your performance, the reasons why, and how to correct them so you can break through to a higher level of skill.

Courses of fire are tailored to the skill level of the shooter and are focused on real world civilian application. For performance and defensive utility, many drills are run from a shot timer to induce stress and get you acclimated to working under time constraints. Your results will be measurable. And you’ll come away with a course of action for incorporating regular dry fire into your practice.
