Training at our facility allows all our students to excel at a pace that best suits them.... "you can drink from a garden hose... or fire hydrant!"

Series vs. Single class

It is our humble opinion at Texas Pistol@Rifle that repetition is the mother of skill. In regards to this philosophy we feel that a single class simply does not lay adequate ground work for the development of true skill. All of our training products are executed in series format so that we can be certain when a shooter finally does part ways with us that he or she has the ground work to continue on in there own lives and develop more skills based on the solid foundation they received with us in our “Series” format of training.

Immediate Action Drills

Immediate action drills are an excellent way to show a shooter that they will not rise to the occasion but in fact sink to the lowest level of there training. No matter what the case may be….. At Texas Pistol and Rifle we want to prepare the hunter, sporting shooter, concerned parent, father or mother that in order to be a success in life they must have a plan of action that can be implemented at a moments notice. The shooting range is an excellent setting to draw parallels to this for a persons overall philosophy on how they navigate life.

Objective Thinking

Many times in sporting or tactical situations objective thinking is required, there usually is no “right” “wrong” answers. A shooter must in an instant access the situation and make a choice on how to proceed. At Texas Pistol and Rifle Academy we put shooters in a position to cause them to think objectively, to navigate a situation when there is no “correct” path only the path that is “chosen” and to effectively bring down there or animal in a sporting situation or stay alive in a tactical one…

Low Light Series

Our low light program is going into its second season since its inception, it offers a cutting edge look at lighting tactics for the handgun, M4 and the combination of the two. We will be offering this series again in the fall of 2013. Classes will be limited to 10 or less shooters on the line……

Fight is Right

Guns keep alot more people alive than they kill. The only way to stop violence is with the threat of GREATER violence. We are evolving or regressing depending on the point of view you take into a society where “fight is right” if things continue down this path it will simply be an issue of who can deal out the GREATER violence. The good guys. Or the bad. For the past 30 years we have been training the good men and women of this country to protect the innocent. Handgun, shotgun or carbine…

Concealed Carry

If you are going to go concealed carry, carry always and everywhere the law allows. Not as a matter of hyper-vigilance, that’s unhealthy, but to build a habit that can pay dividends when the chips are down. Make the concealed platform as typical to your daily “uniform” as your wallet and cellphone, never leaving home without it.

Bolt Gun Series

In the past 20 years of executing this series, we have condensed this program from a 5 day class setting for 15 to 20 shooters down to a 2 day program for private instruction. This program offers a unique opportunity to marry the shooter and his physical abilities to his particular weapon system and hunting or shooting goals… An objective that cannot be reached in class setting when so many different individuals are on the firing line…..

Low-Light Equipment

Based on the work we’ve done at TPA and the stories from students experience about things that go bump in the night, a weapon light is a must. I would consider it as essential to the weapon platform as the magazine that feeds it. That said, if on a pistol have a holster that accomadates the light and add batteries to your kit like you would add extra mags.

Fighting

Role playing gunfighting scenarios against our students affirms the tools I’ve collected that I pass on in our classes. The best lesson I’ve learned is to keep your cool and work your tactics because the other guy can get wrapped up in confrontational stress, making them sloppy and shootable. We trim the fat from our students and make them thinkers that shoot, relying on their primary weapons system, their brain.

Situational Awareness

Maintaining situational awareness is the key to being a success on the range and in life. We at TPA believe that raising a persons overall awareness is one of our highest task we are called to execute in our training environment. Giving the person the ability to see a situation unfolding before it actually does will be your greatest asset …..

GEAR

Proper gear and its importance cannot be stressed enough in the training environment. It is essential to the effective learning process and knowledge retention. No matter the activity, sporting or tactical gear can be the making or breaking of any shooter.

We are thankful for the blessings that have been bestowed on us and in the spirit of such we would like to give back to the shooting community. Please contact us for information on our holiday packages and discounts on all of our training products.

Problem Solving

Before you spend the kids college fund on the latest and greates tactical equipment, employ your primary weapon system (your brain) to be sure you are solving the right tactical problem. Consider the scope of your problem and consider the appropriate response. Problems with break-ins, then consider moving. Problems with muggings, then don’t go for a stroll at 4am in the toughest part of town. After you’ve done the upfront work, come to us and we will put tools in your toolbox to solve the problems that go bump in the night.

Our Instructors

No matter the training product you select, Defensive Pistol Series, CQB shotgun series, Fighting Carbine series, Low Light Series or Bolt Gun program you can rest assured that you will be working with the highest level of instructor out there. All of our instructors have decades in the shooting instruction field. Many of them have a special operations background with the military. Along with that we have a Philosophy at Texas Pistol that states we will always work harder on ourselves then we do at our job which means continued training for all our instructors so that they can bring back the latest and greatest in weapons manipulation.

MINDSET

At Texas Pistol and Rifle our primary goal is to instill confidence in a shooter. Proper mindset is the foundation of this objective. A shooters ability to see himself executing a task in his minds eye before he actually does will very much dictate his overall success and inevitably be the key ingredient to reaching our objective of confidence. This is proper mindset.

“Josh Duhon”

Private instruction VS. Class Setting

It is important to understand that sacrifices are always made in different training settings. In our private setting we are able to fine tune a student, focus in on the details, marry the shooter to his firearm system. Produce a polish that would not be able to be achieved in class setting. We can do more for a shooter in a day then in a 3 day class with 10 to 20 guns on the line. What is the ability to execute under accelerated heart rate worth to you?

Holsters and Body position

When selecting a holster for your handgun it is imperative that you select a holster that facilitates proper body position when the handgun is drawn. The holster must sit vertical on the body so that when the handgun is drawn the head neck and back stay vertical and do not move…. This is imperative for the proper presentation of the pistol.
