FIREARM INSTRUCTION IN COLLEGE STATION
Many beginning shooters “peak” at shooting paper at the local indoor range, and have no avenue or knowledge for advancement. This is simply not acceptable, especially to those who have chosen to carry a handgun for personal protection. As a minimum, this is frustrating for all shooters as their irregular visits to the range may result in inconsistencies, having good days and bad days at the range. There simply may be no good form or muscle memory in which to draw.
Other shooters become somewhat proficient at shooting at paper (Bulls-eye shooting) and never grow from there.
As a professional firearms instructor, I have witnessed first-hand the most common problem for shooter development is that most shooters have large gaps in their training, if they have been trained at all.
INTEGRITY Training Center believes in well-conceived and planned curriculum, not just a list of random courses in a catalog. We believe training and development should be a fabric that interweaves one mastered skill seamlessly to the next introduced skill. This is not a foreign principle in any other sport, so why should it be different for shooting? It is not.
