The final step in our core pistol program at Vortex Edge® completes one of the most all-encompassing pistol shooting experiences available anywhere. Pistol 3 adds more advanced movements, introduction to malfunctions, and the practical application of your developed skills in drills set up by our instructors based on courses of fire from action shooting sports. We strongly believe the best way to get better, regardless of experience or skill level, is to constantly challenge and compete with yourself. By the time you reach Pistol 3, nearly all the drills have a time and accuracy scoring element to push yourself to improve through consistent application of the fundamentals of marksmanship, efficiency of motion, and focusing/seeing the right things under stress. We put it all together at the end with a full USPSA-style stage to show your classmates, the instructors, and most importantly, yourself, what you’re capable of when it’s all on the line!
