2-day Pistol Intelligence with Riley Bowman

This unique course is a result of my own journey as a shooter, intended to streamline each student’s development to shooting enlightenment by distilling shooting down to its simplest principles and forms. I had to learn a lot of things the hard way, and it’s now time to pass along those lessons learned to help you establish a pathway forward that bypasses the common pitfalls most shooters spend YEARS struggling to get past.

One of the biggest lessons I had to learn was the importance of and the role that visual processing plays in one’s shooting. I spent a long time stuck in my development not because I couldn’t grip and press the trigger well, but it was because I didn’t yet understand how to unlock the potential that already existed in my vision—the ability to see and process visual information more efficiently and with greater precision.

In this course, we will unlock that visual performance and show you how to connect what you see with your desired results on target. You will come away with the ability to KNOW precisely where each bullet fired will impact the target before it even gets there. Some of the things in the course may seem like it has a competition focus, but I promise you these concepts are ESPECIALLY useful for gun-carrying professionals and serious concealed-carrying citizens. Learning to use your vision more effectively has been shown to actually reduce stress and improve decision-making when it matters. We will also cover the following (and not necessarily in this order):

  • Principles of grip
  • Sight picture
  • Trigger manipulation
  • The direct relationship between sight picture and trigger
  • Recoil management
  • How to discover your own unique techniques that work best for you
  • Vision drills
  • Shot calling
  • Accountability for hits
  • Draw efficiency
  • Concepts of sooner NOT faster
  • Transitions
  • “Gunfight Hit Factor” – for better understanding how to apply these shooting skills in the real world

Plus, each student will have the opportunity to shoot the Pistol Intelligence Standards to establish their own Pistol Intelligence Quotient (I.Q.) score. This score can then be used to establish a baseline of performance to measure future growth. To score well at the Pistol Intelligence Standards requires that a shooter be well-rounded and not just good at one or two things. Those that can score a Pistol IQ of 144 points or more will be awarded an exclusive numbered Pistol IQ Metal Card.

Course requirements:

This should not be the first formal pistol training course you have taken. This is not a class intended to teach you how to draw or how to setup your gear. This is a class to teach you how to SHOOT! You should already be capable of consistently passing Gila Hayes’ 5×5 Drill if you’re wondering whether this would be a good fit for you or not. Being able to consistently shoot a 85+ on the 10-10-10 drill would be another good metric to gauge readiness.

  • 800 rounds minimum of reliable ammunition
  • Quality pistol
  • A minimum of 3 magazines (if single stack, 5 mags minimum)
  • Mag pouches recommended (you should be able to carry at least 2 spare mags on your person–using your pocket is fine, too!)
  • Quality holster – No Serpas – No soft/collapsible holsters, no cross-draw or shoulder holster
  • Eye protection (safety-rated)
  • Electronic hearing protection STRONGLY encouraged
  • Clothing appropriate for the range and weather
  • Note-taking materials (notepad/pen or phone)
  • Good attitude and an open mind

*Course tuition does not include any range-use fees that are payable to the range or course host.

What do Riley’s Students Say About His Class?

“I am a professional instructor who seeks out the highest quality performance-based pistol training I can. Riley’s Pistol Intelligence class should be on any serious shooter’s shortlist. I unlocked more understanding in this class than several others combined. Mind Blowing…No exaggeration!”
Christopher Bean – Tactical Advantage
“Riley’s Pistol Intelligence class was a phenomenal class and I learned a lot. This class is a deep conceptual dive, ESPECIALLY into vision and how to see efficiently. Riley talks through concepts and philosophy and underlying tenets exceptionally well. I also loved that Riley was able to scale his coaching from a shooter who is near GM level to a shooter struggling to get hits at 10 yards consistently without missing a beat. I would recommend training with Riley. He is worth your time to learn from!”
John Correia – Active Self Protection
“My recoil control and transitions improved the most for me. Cutting a ragged hole at ten yards with about .30 splits was just a dream a week ago. Using my peripheral vision more effectively helped with the transitions. That was new to me and I appreciate that the most.”
Jason Petersen – Petersen Firearms Instruction
