Handgun Mastery Wednesday October 22nd 6:00pm-8:30pm

Yes, time for Handgun Mastery Wednesday!

PLEASE RSVP as we are limiting the Intro to Handguns to 10 shooters for maximum learning experience with optimum instructor/student ratio. Intermediate and Intro to Competition is not limited in size but we still need your RSVP. RSVP on this Facebook notice, or email Glen at or text to 480 570-1086. Please indicate if you need to borrow a gun (22 cal). Please see note below regarding other guns for you to try below.

Our Handgun Mastery Wednesday clinic are for new shooters (Intro to Handguns), Intermediate (next level after basics under control), and those entering into the competition realm (Intro to Competition, holster is required). After you arrive, please check in and we will break out the group accordingly.

At the new shooter level (Intro to Handguns), we will teach you the fundamentals on how to shoot accurately and make you feel more comfortable with your gun. At the Intermediate level, you will cover topics like target transitions, the draw, and attaining fast splits. At the Intro to Competition level, we will cover topics such as what is a stage, the rules, the commands, cover movement, reloads stationary and on the move, and start shooting actual stages. All three levels are designed to improve your skills while having a great time! There are no restriction on the number of times you may attend. Many return to refresh or further enhance their techniques!

Our range does operate on donations. Recommended donation is $10 for Handgun Mastery Wednesday clinic.

Plan to come 15minutes early to register and get set up. Please bring your gun in cases or bagged, and unloaded.

Guns will need to be inspected at the safe table prior to the clinic, so please see an instructor when you arrive.

We have different 9mm guns available for you to try. You will need to bring your own 9mm ammo.

Most importantly, be ready to have fun!

We look forward to seeing you there!

We had a fantastic turn out for our Handgun Mastery Clinic last night, with shooters attending Intro to Handgun, Intermediate, and Intro to Competition. Saw great improvement in the shooter performances and lots of smiling faces!

We are very fortunate to have a great source of dedicated volunteers which makes this all possible:

Bob Wolf, Gary Powell, Kent Forbush, Jay Phillips, Jim Tactay, Les Covey, Donovan Montross.

Special thanks to Mark Armstrong with the support and setup.

Next clinic is scheduled for October 22nd, 6:00-8:30pm.

Please be sure to RSVP quickly as Intro to Handgun is limited to 10 slots. Intermediate and Intro to Competition is unlimited in attendance but would like to have a count for these as well to ensure enough instructors are there. Watch for further announcements! (8 photos)

Thanks to our helpers

Big kudos to Jon Christensen and Denny Struss for designing our Dixie Cup 2014 stages. Jon is an original member of our club, and Denny a newcomer. Good job!

Also, special thanks to Bob Wolf, Brian Hess, and Eric and Linda Stidham, for building our shoot-off stage today.

Reminder: Annual Club Meeting 6PM Thu

Currently planned for Berry’s Pavillion 6pm @ the Range. We will make adjustments if wind drives us away.
You can join/renew prior (5PM on).  The cost is $10.  Note this is a meeting of the members of the non-profit Southern Utah Practical Shooters. The main purpose is to elect officers and conduct other business as the quorum requires.

Current Officers:

Ken Nelson, President
Jeff Bailey, VP
Bob Wolf, Treasurer/Secretary
Jim Meade, Board Member
Chad Larsen, Board Member

All current board members and officers wish to run again, except for Chad Larsen. Chad has been elected President of the Dixie Desperado’s cowboy club. We wish Chad the best!  Fortunately, he has no plans to give up Practical Shooting!   Glen Wong has expressed interest in running for that seat. And of course anybody in good standing is welcome to run for any office.  The by-laws do require board members to become USPSA RO certified within the year they serve.

Elected officers will then continue executing our three fold mission:

  • promote practical shooting
  • promote shooting education
  • support and defend the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution

After the meeting, the Competition Clinic scheduled will take place.
