This is a class designed to turn comfortable gun owners into competent shooters. Defensive Handgun 1 is designed to bridge the gap between “intro to guns” classes and “advanced shooter” classes with progressive concepts and drills connecting the dots from the necessary fundamentals of trigger control, sight picture, grip, and stance — all the way to recoil management, target transitions, and body movement. Too many ranges and instructors offer intro and beginning courses that serve the brand new gun owner or the seasoned shooter who wants to progress, yet they ignore many people in the middle who don’t know where to pick up where they last left off. Well, this is the class for you!
This is an intermediate level course for anybody who has taken a basic handgun class and is looking for the “next step” in their journey as a pistol shooter.

Sean Burrows is an active 3-gun competitive shooter for Team Federal Premium, B&T USA, and Atlas Gunworks. In the offseason, he spends his time training and teaching classes for those with a desire to improve their skills with a firearm.
Born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, guns and the outdoors have always been a way of life for him. He spent his summers shooting .22 rifles and doing archery in his backyard, and the cold winters he shot air guns in his parents’ basement.
In 2005, he participated in his first shooting competition at a campaign fundraiser for a local politician’s campaign. He took third place and won a pump shotgun, which gave him his first taste of what would lead to a full-blown addiction to action shooting sports.
In more recent years, Sean has turned to 3-gun as his sport of choice, and he competes regularly across the western United States in club, regional, and national matches with his wife and shooting teammate, Alysia. His passion for shooting and firearms extends to the rest of his family as well. He makes ample time to spend with his four children, passing along the skills and life lessons learned from the pastime that has come to mean so much to him.
In 2020 he co-founded Elevated Training LLC to meet the ever-increasing demand for quality firearms education and has teamed up with Ready Gunner to provide you with unmatched training.
