Pistol Marksmanship

The Tewksbury Rod & Gun Club is holding a free pistol marksmanship class on April 13th, 2019.  This class is open to all club members.  Students are encouraged to bring a pistol they already own or have access to a pistol they can legally use during the class.  If a student does not currently own a firearm, we will have a limited number of Ruger Mark III .22’s available for loan, including ammunition.  Students are expected to be familiar with safe handling and operation of any pistol that is brought to class.

This class will introduce and reinforce current club members to the fundamentals that will help you become a more accurate pistol target shooter.

The following topics will be covered: Stance, Grip, Sight alignment, Breath control, Trigger squeeze and Follow through.

Instructors will also be available to discuss the pistol team and competitive shooting leagues for those who might be interested. The lead instructor will be Rich Sorrentino.

If you are interested in attending this clinic, please reach out to Rich Sorrentino at firearmsafety@tewksburyrodandgun.org or 978-277-3050.  There will be a maximum of 8 students allowed, on a first come, first serve basis.  You must be on the list prior to class in order to attend.  A walk-in list will be held, however a maximum of 8 students will be enforced.

The class will start promptly at 8:30am, downstairs at the indoor pistol range.

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to check in.

Once all shooters have arrived, we will start by each student shooting 5 rounds at a target. From there we will discuss the fundamentals of pistol shooting.  We will then return to the range for a hands-on practice sessions. At the end of the class, each student will be able to compare their more recent targets to their first target in order to gauge improvement.
