How TPC Helps Practical Shooters

How Tactical Performance Center Helps Practical Shooters

Short version for the TLDR crowd:

  • we teach a system based on principles, not a bag of techniques. It adapts to you, and you to it. It is not the same for everybody because everybody is different.

  • we view the mind as important as the body (or more so). We connect your vision to your mind so you think your way through training and practice, and see your way through a match.

  • we offer a series of products¬†based on your commitment/desire. From low hanging fruit to the last 1/2% needed to become a national champion, we have a product that mirrors¬†your commitment.

  • always start with Handgun Mastery where you learn key concepts and principles needed to Train at the pace of Learning, Try¬†at the pace of Breaking, and Compete at the pace of Performance. ¬†From there you can branch out into sport specific training and also custom mentoring/coaching.

The Longer Story...

The #1 thing we hear from prospective students is "I'm stuck." #2 is "I'm good but don't know why."  #3 is "where can we ship ammo?"

We know, we've been there too!  Everyone goes thru it:

Most of us got decent at practical shooting by mixing some basic shooting technique with natural athleticism.  Maybe we had some training, which is almost always good, but generally it was somebody good showing you what they do, and most often not the "why?"

It all boils down to principles. They work, no matter who applies them.


Principle 1 - Vision guides all high performance human activities. Shooting too!

Vision is your gas pedal. The farther you can see, the faster you can see, the faster you can do anything, including shooting.  But you need guidance on what to see, what to look for, and training on how to see/process what you see faster.  

Handgun Mastery is where all this begins. We cover "seeing what you need to see" and "calling shots." Maybe you call shots. Or do you? A large percentage of people we teach that thought they did, didn't.  

Once your vision starts clicking, we can then get you into discipline specific vision‚Äďlike "what do I need to see to shoot an A at 50 yards" or "what do I need to see for a 95% A on a swinger rising up from cover." That is covered in¬†Handgun Competition Mastery¬†and¬†Multigun Competition Mastery.

Don't plan on attending a competition specific course until you have VISION for basic shooting technique mastered, you won't get the bang for the buck you would from Handgun Mastery (or a 2nd or 3rd time thru this course).

And later as you reach the higher plateaus develop mentoring, coaching, and semi-private training.

 Principle 2 - Early 

Would you rather shoot earlier than me? or faster? We ask this question at the beginning of every class. Most answer "earlier" and then go shoot using a "later but fast" technique.

Handgun Mastery covers the techniques (and mindset) of doing everything as early as you can. From aiming, to seeing, to recovering from recoil, we teach to do it earlier not faster. Once you have this down for the basic shooting, then we expand it in sports specific classes and coaching. An example would be the Handgun Competition Mastery class where we show you how to shoot earlier when arriving into any firing position and how to leave earlier. Being ready leads to being calm and processing, which means reliable performance. Frantic "quick but late" is great when it works but when it doesn't it is a train wreck. Does that describe you? You need to be early for the train, not running to catch it on the platform. 


You decide how far you want to go in this sport. You decide your level of commitment personally, financially, and emotionally. There is no RIGHT answer, just your answer. 

If you want to get good, win club matches, collect lunch bets, and have fun by being pretty good at this, then Handgun Mastery once or twice + a sport specific training module will jump start that. 

As an option, do a VIP plan and come back frequently to take training and use our facility as your launch pad for improvement.

If you want to contend for regional and national titles then plan on attending multiple Handgun Mastery courses, sports discipline specific courses, semi-private training/coaching, and mentoring with one of our lead instructors.
