    About Us

    World Championship Instruction

    Col. Roger Harvey (US Army - Ret.) led the US Military Pentathlon program from the Pentagon and later from the US Olympic Training Center for 6 years.  He has three podium finishes in international competition (Rome, Hanover, Paris).  He is a retired University Professor in kinesiology (motor learning).  

    Train like a CHAMPION

    World-class shooters spend 10 hours dry-firing for every hour with live ammo.  We use state-of-the-art dry-fire exercises and equipment (laser guns, Mantis-X accelerometer, etc.) before your first shots - so it is not uncommon for a new shooter who has never even HELD a pistol to shoot their first 5 shots better than marksmen with decades of experience.    

    Our Motto

    SAFETY FIRST ... then  COMPETENCE, CONFIDENCE,  AND  FUN!

    RANGE SAFETY OFFICER TRAINING

    As an NRA Chief Range Safety Officer, I train and certify Range Safety Officers so they can safely supervise public and private shooting facilities.   We teach NRA RSO classes for range owners, law enforcement firing range administrators, and youth camp owners/operators who offer marksmanship programs, including the Boy Scouts of America (Scouting BSA). We have Boy Scout Camp shooting range design and range SOP publication experience.  We have California Police Department experience with both range operation and SOP review.

    I currently coach the United States Military Skills team for their annual World Championship competition.  I offer the same  coaching for other competitive bulls-eye pistol shooters.

    We are a Federal Firearms LIcense holder (FFL) and offer FFL services for on-line gun sales and purchases, private party transfers and other firearms transactions approved by the California Department of Justice, Bureau of Firearms.  Fee:  $40 + CA DOJ fee ($25).  PPT: $35 + CA DOJ fee ($25).  NOTE:  Local sales tax of 7.75% of purchase price is also collected by FFL.  Contact me prior to having a seller or other FFL ship a firearm to Basic Gun Safety.
