    Great class

    Posted by Mark Burgess on May 22nd 2018

    I took the advanced pistols class May 19th-20th 2018 it was everything I expected and more.
    I am a much more confident shooter because of the expert instruction from Rodney May.

    About half way through the second day my front sight became loose. I could have fixed it but would have lost some valuable instruction. I was able to finish the day using a point of reference. Take the class and find out what that means. I can assure you, you will not be disappointed.

    I would recommend the class to anyone who is looking to improve their skills and confidence.

    What a Great Class!

    I was able to take part in the advanced pistol class back in November of 2015 with Scott Satterlee. I cant recommend this class enough, it was definitely not a "one size fits all" class.
    The instruction was clear and concise and tailored to the individual shooter. Scott was able to observe the shooters in the class and identify what areas needed the most focus. He then offered multiple methods or techniques to address those items identified to allow the shooter to decide what works best for them. It was a very relaxed and open class format, and at no point did I feel intimidated or that I couldn't ask a question to Scott.
    After two solid days of shooting, I learned a lot and I definitely feel that I left CORE a better shooter.

    So in short, if you are on the fence about this kind of class, Just do it!
    Bring plenty of ammo, lots of magazines (and loader), as well as an open mind and I'm sure you wont be disappointed.
