Our Philosophy
We at On Sight Shooting School are dedicated to the belief that we not only have the
right to bear arms, we have the responsibility to do so in a safe, competent manner.

That's why we provide the ideal place for you to learn about handguns in a fun, safe
environment. We don't have the "drill sergeant" mentality like many other schools.
Our goal is to make you a safe, proficient shooter. How far you want to take those
skills is totally up to you!

About the Staff of On Sight Shooting School
Our staff's knowledge is as diverse as the courses we teach. The one thing we are certain of
is that you will be instructed by a knowledgable, professional instructor of the highest caliber.

Our goal is to make you a more confident, competant and safe shooter!
