Hello, my name is Chris Gesualdo and I am the owner and instructor with FST.  I am an NRA certified instructor with 20+ years of teaching and 35 years shooting experience. I am also a pilot for the Colorado Multi Mission Aircraft which is used primarily to find and map wild land fires and for search and rescue.

I started my teaching career as an airplane flight instructor and spent many years teaching students and pilots of all skill levels.  During this time I developed the relaxed teaching style and the effective techniques that help the student learn and retain the habits that must be second nature to be safe.  As a shooting instructor I use these same habits to teach the proper shooting techniques.

Class sizes are limited for plenty of one-on-one instruction.

Use my handguns, rifles or shotguns at no extra cost, ammo available but not included.

Classes are held at a private outdoor range 15 min East of Aurora off Quincy Road which allows:

       Steel and clay as well as paper targets.

       Drawing and shooting from a holster.

       Shooting while moving.

       Longer distances, out to five hundred yards.

Women only classes available.

Children 10 years and older welcome in private or family lessons.  Children who learn respect and safe handling of firearms early on will retain these habits throughout their lives.  As a father of two I realize that children can require more of my time so although I welcome them I as that they be in a smaller class.

Even if you already have your CCW or have taken a class in the past it is important to seek recurrent training at regular intervals.  Safe habits and a strong shooting technique will fade with time but a few hours with a knowledgeable instructor will bring them back quickly.  After all, hitting your target is the goal of all shooting.  Besides, it's more fun than missing.

Typically I limit classes to 4 or 5 hours. Learning is active and does require energy. In my experience after 4 hours most people are fatigued and learning slows down. This information is too important to miss because you are tired. Several shorter classes are much better for retention of this important material.  

My goal is to use techniques and style I developed as a flight instructor to teach you what I have learned over 30+ years of shooting and years of training. To get you comfortable with a firearm so you’re at ease using it safely and effectively. Whether you’ll be shooting a handgun, rifle or shotgun we’ll review handling and using the gun safely, from storing ammunition to the components of a firearm to the proper grip, sight picture and trigger control.
Classes and events are held at the range. No extra range or park fees or driving from a classroom to a range.

On the rare not so perfect Colorado day we have facilities with heat and AC.

Not to mention hot coffee, donuts and a bathroom!

About me
Why Fixed Sight Training?

"I took the basic pistol class and was so impressed! Chris was very patient with his teaching and explained things so clearly to me even though I knew nothing about shooting or firearms before that day. I would recommend his classed to anyone and look forward to the day I can take the next level class from him. He is a great instructor and his depth of knowledge is fabulous"
