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 an off-site class in the year 2019. 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.

No Gunsite Classes at FAS in 2020

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

Seattle 150 Three Day Pistol Class

This offsite class is a unique introduction to Gunsite training. The 150 Pistol class is 3 days of Gunsite teaching methods covering the Modern Technique of the pistol!

This is an excellent opportunity for first time students to learn Gunsite doctrine. It is also a great refresher for our alumni graduates. If you have always wanted the Gunsite Experience, this is your chance to do so while limiting your travel and time.

We will cover the Combat Triad – marksmanship, gun handling and mindset. As with all our courses, safety will drive everything we do as you progress during 3 days of the world‘s premier pistol training.

Dates: August 16, 2019 - August 18, 2019
