I’ve been asked by some why I am such a proponent of Gunsite Academy. There are a number of reasons but most importantly, its reliability.
Have you ever suggested to a friend that they eat at a certain restaurant? A few days later they call you up and rag on you because the food or service sucked. Sure you have.
With Gunsite I never have to worry about recommending attendance there. I’ve attended over a dozen training sessions at Gunsite and in every case the instruction was phenomenal, the instructors were professional and I learned something. When I find another firearms training school I can say that about, I’ll recommend it too. As a firearms journalist I cannot afford to suggest that readers attend a firearms training academy that delivers anything less than a stellar product – every single time.
Much of this credit goes to COL Cooper for founding Gunsite with a rigid standard of operation. However, just as much credit goes to the new owner, Buz Mills, and his staff for maintaining the tradition and the standard of excellence.
Bottom line; if you want to learn how to shoot, go to Gunsite.
