Gunsite Classes in Pacific Northwest
The Firearms Academy of Seattle is honored to be chosen by the worlds’ premier firearms training school, GUNSITE ACADEMY to be the host range for several off-site classes in the year 2017. Gunsite was started in 1976 by Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper, and holds the distinction of having been the first, and most people would agree, the most prestigious firearms training school in the nation.
If you have always wanted to attend a Gunsite Academy course, but simply never was able to do so because of time and/or money constraints, and you live in the Pacific Northwest, here is your chance.
A note to FAS students from Director Marty Hayes:
“Just because you have taken training from FAS in the past, it doesn’t mean you should not branch out and take additional training from other instructors. The skills and materials may be similar, but I guarantee you there is new stuff you will learn. Additionally, shooting skills are perishable, and one needs to continue to train to hold on to those skills they do possess, as especially as we get older. I recommend Gunsite Academy without reservation.” --Marty Hayes
