IJPS® NRA Pistol Instructors & Coaching Staff motto:
Mediocre educators tell.  Good educators explain.
Superior educators demonstrate.
Great educators inspire
When we educate, we elevate.
Your job as a precision pistol athlete isn’t to shoot . . .
it is to aim!

Perfect practice makes perfect  •  Practice hard  •  Practice smart

The United States Army Marksmanship Unit  was at the
ISRA Range, in Bonfield, on Sunday, 2 Oct 22 for a
Precision Pistol Seminar
This is the first time the Civilian Marksmanship Program
has run their “Pistol Marksmanship 101”  program,
in Illinois, 
and in a  .22 long rifle, precision pistol,  format for our IJPS  juniors.
Two (2) firsts for IJPS & ISRA 

Our instructor was SFC James Henderson, (retired),
U.S. Army Marksmanship Training Unit, Fort Benning, GA
One of the Army‘s “World Class Athletes!
An Army “Top Gun” and an Olympian

Josh, Chase, Brenden, & Matt really make us proud!
Their live-fire scores blew the Coaching Staff away !!!!!

Jim Henderson delivered a first class program and the weather and facilities were PERFECT for shooting.
(Jeff, you are an outstanding Rangemaster & property manager!)

Our junior athletes really made us proud!
