The Competition 2 Gun Class is a new class geared for the competitive shooter, specifically when it comes to using handguns and carbines in a practical shooting competition format.
In this 2 Gun class, we will go over techniques for how to be fast and accurate with your handgun and rifle, fluidly (and safely) moving around a stage, transitioning quickly between targets, and more.
If you want to get the competitive edge with your rifle and pistol, this is the class for you.
Class goals & skills covered:
- Have a fun and safe day at the range
- Improve handgun and rifle handling and manipulation
- Controlling a handgun and rifle through recoil
- Transitioning between targets with a rifle and handgun
- Moving between positions and moving while shooting
- Kneeling and prone with a rifle
- Using shooting barricades with a rifle
- Getting quickly in and out of positions
Shooting fast and accurate
This isn’t “bullseye” shooting, this is “dynamic” shooting. In this class we will be shooting quickly for “practical” groups on targets commonly used in shooting competitions. We’ll work on how to speed up everything we do while still maintaining acceptable accuracy.
If you examine your stage time, where are the biggest gaps in time? Where is the most time that can be shaved off? Is it taking a 0.25 split down to a 0.2 split? Or is it taking 2 seconds instead of 5 seconds to move between a shooting position? Or maybe speeding up a target transition from .75 to .4?
Movement and transitions are two of the greatest opportunities to shave off time on a shooting stage, so we’ll dig into these key skills.

Who is this class for?
This class is great for 3 Gunners and Run and Gun competitors, but is useful for people who want to shoot a rifle and handgun quickly in a dynamic environment.
This is not a class for brand new shooters. This class requires basic understandings of how to manipulate and shoot both rifle and pistol. Competition experience is not required, but will help maximize the learning experience from the class.
