Overview

For new shooters, a pistol can be hard to grip, hard to aim, and hard to control. Many of the common frustrations we see people have when shooting a pistol simply come down to a lack of training from the start, resulting in bad habits building up over time. This is why Intro to Pistol is one of our favorites at Vortex Edge®! We love seeing the looks on students' faces as they handle and shoot pistols safely, proficiently, and at a level of performance they never would have dreamed of accomplishing after just a few hours with our instructors. Intro to Pistol sets the groundwork for you to leave feeling more comfortable around handguns, ready to get quality practice in on your own time, and if you’re really enjoying it, eventually come back to join us for the next step, which is Pistol 1 in our Total Shooter Program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knowledgeable and Skilled Instructors If you want to learn how to use a firearm properly, I highly recommend Vortex Edge. This is a world class facility with phenomenal instructors. From the moment you walk in, everyone's goal is for you to succeed in confidently and safely using a gun. Our class instructors included Chris, Corrie, Mike, and Pete. These guys know their stuff, and they are so encouraging. I knew nothing about handguns, but left the class knowing how to safely load, unload, and shoot a pistol. Pete worked one on one with me and has to be the most patient guy I've ever met. He took his time in making sure I understood what I was doing. By the end of class, I surprised myself and hit some plates in target practice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Began as beginners, left with skills & confidence I didn’t know what to expect when signing up for the course but was so happy with the knowledge and confidence I received. The instructors are fun loving guys who genuinely are skilled at teaching and giving individual instruction for the success of each student. Even though the class is a group, each student received one on one instruction each time we shot. This lead to everyone in the class perfecting their technique and greatly improving. We all went from virtually no handgun experience to shooting consistently in the black in a few hours. Safety and knowledge of how the gun operates was drilled from the beginning, which gave confidence in not only shooting the target but storing and handling the gun safely. Our class had a blast and left wanting to come back for more shooting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome training experience This is a top notch facility with a professional environment that with ease made me feel welcome and excited to learn. Instructors offer a true hands-on experience for all no matter the level of expertise. A novice (that’s Me!) and several others in the same session with much more arms experience enjoyed our session over several hours of individualized training focused on safety first, familiarity with arms, stance and posture provided by experts with humor and tons of knowledge to share. I highly recommend this program.
