Course Description

Do you think you can hit a golf ball further than Tiger Woods? How about beat Kevin Durant in one on one? Do you believe you can throw a football further than Sam Bradford? Of course not. Why? Because they are professionals and professionals practice their sport.

They train in and out of season, because they realize those specific skills are perishable. This is what we run into in the shooting industry. People think that they can pull their gun out of the holster twice a year and shoot like Annie Oklie. Truth being, there are a lot of fundamentals to shooting and unless they are learned correctly and practiced often, you will learn, only when you need to use those skills, that they are gone.

Following are just a few reasons why we consider training so important. So whether you choose to train with us or you choose to train with another group, the importance to training cannot be left to figure out when upon realizing you need to call on it.

Optimum Utilization of Skills – Training and Practice help in optimizing the skills that further help the shooter to become confident in their abilities.

Development of Skills – Training and Practice help increase the knowledge and limits for the individual shooter and their chosen firearm.

Efficiency – Training and Practice help decrease the amount of wasted efforts most shooters experience, either in their individual movements or in how they manipulate their firearms.

Pistol Skills 4

With the fundamental pistol shooting skills already mastered, students in Pistol Skills 4 are now ready to learn real fighting or competition skills.  Pistol Skills 4 places a strong emphasis on foot work and movement.

Instructor Development Course

CLEET has approved this class for use in applying to be an SDA instructor.  If you’ve ever wanted to certify and license to teach the carry class here in Oklahoma, here is an opportunity for quality training towards that goal!

This class will be 20 hours of challenging, interesting, and fun material.  It will include both a written and a shooting test to pass.  This class will prove sufficiently challenging and those who successfully complete it will experience both pride and a great sense of accomplishment.

Since this is the longest class we have ever offered, it will also be the most expensive.  In order to keep this class affordable to all who might be interested, I am devising a “tuition rebate” plan.  I will apply a portion of any tuition you have already paid to Oklahoma Shooting Skills for a handgun class towards the instructor class.  This plan will keep the class comparable in pricing to any comparable class, and a real bargain for our existing student base.

Time:  20 hours
Cost: $550.00 (refer to the “tuition rebate” plan explained above)
Pre-requisites: PS 3 or above
Equipment needed: Handgun
250 rounds of ammunition, ballcap, hearing, and eye protection
