He was also the kind host to our Sacramento THR Turkey Shoot who with Paul Erhardt has been kinda enough to send the people of CA, samples of SigArms latest and greatest goodies. Several of our own USN members have been lucky enough to have attended one or more of his CA classes.

    if you are interested in becoming a more proficient shooter one of the best things you can spend your money on is proper instruction. learn to do things the right way the first time and you won't have to spend time later un-learning your bad habits.

    i've carried a gun for a living for years and spent serveral years competing with everything from small bore rifle (ROTC) to PPC (back when we shot wheelguns). i've taken tactical shooting classes including one from ernest langdon before he stopped teaching.

    having see that, i will say that bruce gray taught me more techniques that i was able to use in improving my shooting during that first day then i would have believed possible. he is a consummate shooter, a great teacher/story teller and a true gentlman.

    i would recommend his classes without reservation, even if you never intent to compete in handgun shooting sports, you will leave his class with skills and confidence you would otherwise find hard to duplicate...and youy don't even have to come out to the golden state
