Have you always wanted to take a class from the world-class instructors at Gunsite Academy, but been intimidated by the travel time? If you live on the East Coast, Colonial Shooting Academy, the largest indoor shooting range in the country, has some great news for you: an exclusive partnership that will bring Gunsite’s classes to Colonial Shooting Academy in Richmond, VA.
“We are proud to add Gunsite’s world-class firearms training course to what we believe is the best indoor range in the country,” said Colonial Shooting Academy Marketing Manager, Peyton Lacy. “Anyone who is serious about firearms training dreams of attending a Gunsite class and now we are able to bring Gunsite 2,000 miles closer to shooters on the east coast.”
The collaboration between Colonial and Gunsite will bring Gunsite classes like the popular 250 Defensive Pistol course to Colonial Shooting Academy’s indoor tactical range and indoor shoot house starting in September 2015. The 250 Defensive Pistol Course was first presented in 1976 by Colonel Jeff Cooper and is one of the most sought after firearms classes in the country. Suitable for shooters of all experience levels, the 250 Defensive Pistol Course is designed to achieve gun handling confidence and competence, includes 5 days of range work, lectures and intensive live-fire simulators, including low-light scenarios.
“I am proud to bring the Gunsite experience to the east coast at Colonial Shooting Academy,” said Gunsite Owner Buz Mills. “There is certainly an advantage to being able to train rain or shine, and the facilities at Colonial Shooting Academy are the best I’ve seen on the east coast. I’m going to enjoy spending time with new students in Richmond and I’m sure that some of our regular Gunsite students will be dropping by as well.”
