About PSI

The goal of Practical Shooting Instruction is to introduce people to safe gun handling and concealed carry, to introduce new shooters to concepts of defensive pistol and to the sport of competition shooting. We are located in Missoula, Montana, and our classes are held at Western Montana Fish and Game's Deer Creek Shooting Center.

Nate Martin and Scott Giesick began teaching gun safety, defensive pistol, and competition shooting classes starting in April 2011. Their defensive pistol and competition classes are based on the multiple classes they have taken from the very top competitive shooters and defensive instructors, including Mike Seeklander, Keith Garcia, Ron Avery, Todd Jarrett, Max Michelle, Manny Bragg, Travis Tomasi, and Phil Strader. Both instructors have gained quite a bit of insight into what it takes to shoot accurately under pressure.

There are some basic changes most shooters can make to improve their performance. Both Nate and Scott believe by sharing their experiences from competition, law enforcement and several hundreds of thousands of rounds downrange, they can help you shoot your best.
