You Suck It's Not The Gun : $175
YSINTG® | You Suck! It’s Not the Gun!® is MDFI's core firearms class. Developed after witnessing scores of shooters blaming their pistol sights for missing their intended targets, YSINTG shows how focusing on and practicing the core fundamentals of shooting will greatly improve the marksmanship of any shooter regardless of skill level

This class takes pistol shooting back to the basics. In an attempt to focus on the defensive use of a handgun, many classes do not focus a great deal of time on the ability to place a bullet precisely where the shooter wants it to go. This class is aimed at fixing that. After this class, most students show drastic improvement in their pistol shooting accuracy.    Minimum 150 rounds of ammunition required.
