OSUVA Practical Pistol Basics is a half-day (4 hrs) shooting workshop where we introduce you to the basic weapon handling techniques of any practical shooting sports (like IPCS, IDPA or SRA). If you are interested to get hands-on instruction and coaching in English to develop your skills as a pistol shooter or try out new challenges beyond bullseye target shooting this is a class for you.

We’ll cover all material and do lecturing, range commands and blocks of instruction in English. This workshop is offered mainly for our non-Finnish-speaking clients in mind but of course anybody can sign up.
