  MARKSMANSHIP    I had been handling/shooting guns for over 30 years before I met Jim Dinan (and was quite satisfied with my skills up till then). But only as a consequence of taking his NRA Certified Instructor's Course for Pistol/Firearm safety/Personal Protection; did I learn how to shoot accurately (and quickly when necessary). The time spent on the range with him (and the class), was like having a personal Olympic coach diagnosing one's weak points and proposing the cure.       MORE >>

So many of our students had mentioned the school so favorably, we had to find out for ourselves what was going on. After just a few minutes as members of a class, we realized the amazing capabilities of Mr. Dinan. He is to firearms training what the highly successful immersion technique is to foreign language training.       MORE >>

"Speed is Good But Accuracy is Final"

Marksmanship Training

With your interest and cooperation, attendance in one of The Long Island NY James Dinan School of Marksmanship Courses, will develop a student into one of the 80% of graduates who are capable of out-performing 95% of all law enforcement officers & their trainers participating in the same course of fire as that provided by The James Dinan School.

As part of the training, each student receives over 15 books and handouts covering the topics of Safety, Marksmanship, and Penal Law.

The classroom course meets all the requirements of the NRA Basic Pistol and Home Firearm Safety courses except for the range shooting requirements (NRA Basic Training), which can be achieved after classroom instruction by students attending one of the three scheduled range events each year.  If you wish, private or semi-private range instruction is also available.  

This course is guaranteed to be more complete, concise, and informative than any other course you may have attended, or may attend in the future, on the subjects of Safety and Marksmanship.
