Next year’s class schedule will be posted by December 15 of the current year

A23 Shooting School is located in Central Arizona near Maricopa.  Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is the closest airport.

Once you are registered for a course, we will be happy to coordinate shipments

Yes.  Students must use either Frangible or Copper Plated Bullets.  NO Jacketed ammunition is allowed.

Students will be engaging steel targets at close range.  On impact, jacketed ammunition poses a serious risk of the jacket separating and deflecting back toward the shooter. Using Copper Plated bullets or Frangible bullets minimizes this risk. CCI Blazer in all calibers is an acceptable plated lead core bullet.

At least 2,500 rounds for the full course.   You will shoot 500-600 rounds-per-day during instruction and drills.

You can shoot any pistol caliber, but because of the high number of shots fired each day (around 500 shots) and frequent re-loads during drills, we recommend using 9mm with high-capacity magazines.

You will need a holster and at least 4 magazines for whichever pistol you use

Read Bill Roger’s book “Be Fast, Be Accurate, Be the Best”. A copy of the book will be sent to you upon registration. Practice the drills spelled out from pages 54 to 103. Pay particular attention to pages 76 and 102.

Do not arrive at the school and expect to do well if you cannot clearly see the front sight of your handgun instantly while pointing at a spot with both eyes open. Bifocal lenses will not work!
