PSA Mission Statement:
To provide the highest quality services, support and example for those who use firearms for tactical or practical applications.
What We Do:
The word, “practical”, defines our philosophy. Our training programs cover the full range of activities where you might use a firearm or other skills, not just competitive shooting programs. Whether you are a law enforcement or military operator having to use these skills in real life, a hunter taking the shot of a lifetime, a CCW carrier having to defend your life in a deadly force situation or a recreational shooter out to enjoy their personal firearm, we have a program that is right for you.
Our training is based on scientific principles and experience with the emphasis on teaching shooting and tactics from a true world class performer level.True world class training puts the student in a much higher skill bracket. This translates into superior performance in lethal force or other areas and makes the difference between winning and losing.
Established in 1989, Ron Avery has trained thousands of students from law enforcement, military, government and the private sector. His proven methodology and doctrine has been adopted into countless individual and organizational training programs over the years. Ron is one of the original sources for high performance shooting and his doctrine is being used worldwide by a wide variety of clientele. PSA training methods, drills and exercises are used as models for training all over the world.
Our performance standards set the bar for top level performance and our students love it! Student feedback shows superior learning, retention and performance in their everyday life as well as in gunfight encounters. We have many after action reports from our students verifying this aspect of training.
PSA Pro Team and Team PSA
Our PSA Pro Team and our Team PSA Shooters represent both the higher ends of skills performance and one of the forms of testing we use to ensure we are putting the best product available out there. If you are not willing to put your skills to the test against others then how do you know what you are doing is as good as it could be?
