3 Minutes with a GUNSITE Instructor

Ever wish you could have 3 minutes with a Gunsite instructor. Well, here’s three minutes with one of the best. Ed Stock was the first person I learned something from at Gunsite and I learn something from him every time I go back.

A hillbilly at heart, Richard lives on Shadowland - his shooting range in West Virginia - with the most understanding wife in the world, their three kids and a very protective ridgeback hound.

    My advice to folks is to go to Gunsite and take a class (I started in 1990, and am feeling the urge for continuing education.) 😉

    I have done four classes over the years, and my next plan is to re-do the API 250 basic handgun class with an H&K P30 LEM in .40 S&W using the modern isosceles technique. I am upgrading from Weaver and the HP 35 from last time.

    Gunsite is a world class facility. I’ve taken three classes and plan to take many more. You get top notch instruction each time. Ed Stock leads the pack — he’ll push your skill set to a higher level.
