Concealed Carry, Personal & Home Defense Training, has been our specialties
for the past 16+ years & will continue to be so for the foreseeable future.
However, as noted in the blue heading directly above, we also offer a multitude
of additional classes. We offer NRA's extremely basic "Home Firearm Safety"
& their "Refuse to be a Victim " a non-firearm personal protection class. We
also offer "custom classes" tailored to a specific individuals needs, wants or desires.
Please give us a call. I feel certain we can meet all your firearm and/or personal
protection training needs.

Gift Certificates are available for all Firearm Classes as well
as Photography Classes & Sittings!

We offer private classes, often at no additional charge!

The (full) designation on the below listed ILT (Instructor Led Training)
pistol classes is a reference only to the type of class, (it includes both revolver
& semi-automatic pistol training) not that the class is sold out. Instructors have
three options when teaching this class. The first option is to teach the "full"
class (described above), the second option is to conduct only revolver training,
& the third option is to conduct only semi-automatic pistol training.
Blue Mesa Shooting normally offers only the "full class."
With two or three days lead time, any of the below listed student classes will be offered
about any time since student classes do not require a pre-requisite minimum of students.

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. ( See down-loadable PDF list near the top of this page.)
Larry McWhirter, owner and head instructor, has graduated from
Gunsite Training Academy’s basic 250 & their more advanced
350 handgun classes.
He is also an NRA certified instructor & training counselor in virtually
every NRA discipline. (Instructors train & certify students, Training
counselors train & certify instructors).
Larry has taught professionally for 43 consecutive years.
To the best of our knowledge, there are no other active firearm trainers
in Western Colorado with these credentials.

Our specialty is handgun training (personal defense & concealed carry),

but we also offer many of the most basic firearm training classes available.
Also offered — rifle & shotgun training, Range Safety Officer & Chief Range
Safety Officer training & certifications. We offer a“Defensive Shotgun Class.”
Our 30 hour “Academy” handgun class (see link above) is unsurpassed.
Based on Gunsite’s more advanced training, we believe that it is the
most complete & comprehensive class of its’ kind in Western Colorado.

For those desiring even more training, we offer an “Advanced Academy Class.”
Our range classes are conducted on a private range, so we are the only
ones present in the area.

We offer both NRA'S ILT (Instructor led training) and Phase 2 of their blended
basic pistol courses. We also offer their rifle, shotgun, & both Personal Protection
In & Out of the Home Classes.

On top of all this,
we offer NRA’s “Refuse to be a Victim” a non-firearm
personal protection class, designed specifically for those who prefer
not to use a firearm. Please feel free to give us a call at any time to
discuss any of these classes in whatever detail you would prefer. If we
are out, please leave a message& we’ll get back to you promptly.

New!
Streamlined one day concealed carry class!

Blue Mesa Shooting Academy is now offering an optional, streamlined version of our one day
concealed carry (CHP) class. This shortened version will substitute classroom dry fire practice
shooting for range work & will shorten the regular class by a few hours, reduce the price of said
class from $110.00 to $65.00 & satisfy state requirements requiring students to show “competency”
with a handgun. This dry fire practice will be based on Gunsite Training Academy’s teaching since
Larry is a graduate of both their “250” & more advanced “350” pistol classes.
As stated, this class is an option & we will, of course, continue to offer our regular class, with range
live fire shooting, for those desiring more advanced training.  Additionally, streamlined students
may take the range class at a later date. Please call for further information, clarification, or questions.
(970) 249-2771

Compare our Concealed Carry Classes
either our one day or our full length Academy class to any other being offered on the Western Slope, & we
believe you will find ours to be the most thorough & complete available, especially since we include a
full 2½ hour law class with both classes! Normally offered on the second Saturday of each month, with
a two student minimum, these classes will be offered about any time.
Call (970) 249-2771 for further information.
