    Hey everyone, first post here. Are there any particular people or businesses that you'd recommend for pistol training?

    I'm fairly new to pistols (about 9 months) and while I'm comfortable with safety, handling, etc., I know I need some training and correction on my marksmanship. I can get some decent shots/groups, but not greatly consistent.

    I have a Sig P220 that is for both range and home defense. I'm active duty and have only been here about a year, so I'm still not familiar with a lot of the places.

    I have a business card from Gun Training San Antonio that I picked up at Blackhawk, and a brochure for Texas Professional Firearms Training. Any opinions on these or other training providers you'd be willing to share?

    My training priorities are: marksmanship, CHL, home defense / tactical shooting.

    Thanks for any experience you guys can share!

    Howdy, I'm sure others on here can tell you places to go to get quality training from a professional in your area. As far as practicing on your own, pistol-training.com has many many drills you can do on your own that were developed by some top names in the business. They are a good resource as well for continuing to develop what you learn.

    I have given active duty troops no-cost firearms instruction for the past fifteen years. Student only provides firearm, ammunition and pays range fees.

    Call it coaching or mentoring. I don't take money from someone who wants to learn fundamentals.

    Uncle Sam pays my retirement, and I like to pay it forward.
