Instruction Matters

The proof is in the pudding - or target as the case may be - as you can clearly see here.  Both targets were shot by a Master Sergeant (23 years service still on Active Duty).  The LEFT target at 3:00pm, just prior to the Wednesday Intro to Pistol Shooting and the RIGHT target just after the class at 5:30PM the SAME day.  Same shooter.  Same weapon.  Same ammunition.  So what changed?  Knowledge.  Sight alignment, trigger control.  And, the willingness to do what was asked - trust the sight picture and weapon.  The MSGT. was astounded.  He said he'd never been taught how to shoot a handgun until he took the class at Defender Firearms Training.
