This class is the next opportunity to attend Ken Hackathorn's world class 2-Day Advanced Handgun class. It is right in Ken's backyard at the Fort Harmar Rifle Club.

The cool part of having the class at the Fort Harmar range is that a portion of the class will be held in the shoot house to add unique skills and stress to the class. Some things just cannot be taught on a flat range. It goes without saying that Grey Group Training is very proud to be offering such world-class caliber classes to our customers.
