About Blue Mesa Shooting Academy
Blue Mesa Shooting Academy offers what we believe is the most
complete & comprehensive schedule of adult firearm training classes
in this area.
Larry McWhirter, owner and head instructor, has graduated from
Gunsite Training Academy’s basic 250 & their more advanced 350 handgun classes.
Larry has taught professionally for
To the best of our knowledge, there are no other
active firearm trainers
in Western Colorado with these credentials.
Our specialty is handgun training (home, personal defense & concealed carry),
and we also offer the most basic firearm training classes available including
handgun, rifle & shotgun classes. Range Safety Officer classes are also available.
Last, but certainly not least,
offer“Defensive Shotgun Training.”
Our 30 hour “Academy” handgun class is unsurpassed. Based on Gunsite’s basic
advanced training, we believe that it is the most complete, thorough, & comprehensive
class of its’ kind in Western Colorado.
For those desiring even more training, we offer an “Advanced Academy Class.”
All range classes are conducted on a private range, so we are always the only
present in the area.
Please feel free to give us a call at any time to
discuss any of these classes in
detail you would prefer. If we
are out, please leave a message& we’ll
get back to you promptly.
