My name is Rose, and I have designed these "Animated Lessons" on the Fundamentals of Shooting, Aiming, Breath Control, Trigger Control, Grip, and Follow Through, with full audio narration that you will find nowhere else on the web.

"I really had a lot of fun working on each one of these lessons. Being an instructor out at the range, and then having the chance to create something like this has been awesome! For you, it will be more like a one-on-one lesson that you can review as many times as you like.  I feel these may help you get acquainted with handling a firearm before you need to use it".
