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
both Gunsite Training Academy’s basic 250 and their more advanced
350 handgun classes. All Blue Mesa's handgun training classes are based

based on Gun site 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
