Renowned training facility Gunsite Academy—one of the country's oldest and largest firearms training organizations—will soon be making its typically Arizona-based courses available on the Eastern seaboard, thanks to a partnership with Richmond, Virginia's Colonial Shooting Academy. The exclusive partnership will bring Gunsite's courses to Colonial Shooting Academy starting in September 2015.

“We are proud to add Gunsite’s world-class firearms training course to what we believe is the best indoor range in the country,” said Colonial Shooting Academy Marketing Manager, Peyton Lacy. “Anyone who is serious about firearms training dreams of attending a Gunsite class and now we are able to bring Gunsite 2,000 miles closer to shooters on the east coast.”

One of Gunsite's most popular classes—like the 250 Defensive Pistol course, which was first presented in 1976 by academy founder Colonel Jeff Cooper—will be the first to be offered in Richmond. Four sessions will be held in 2015: Sept. 5-9, Oct. 10-14;, Nov. 7-11 and Dec. 5-9. There's no word yet on other course offerings, though it's safe to expect that more will soon follow.

“I am proud to bring the Gunsite experience to the east coast at Colonial Shooting Academy,” said Gunsite Owner Buz Mills. “There is certainly an advantage to being able to train rain or shine, and the facilities at Colonial Shooting Academy are the best I’ve seen on the east coast. I’m going to enjoy spending time with new students in Richmond and I’m sure that some of our regular Gunsite students will be dropping by as well.”
