The famous Gunsite Academy, based in Arizona, is known to many gun owners as a place to learn in-depth firearms shooting and handling skills. Now Crimson Trace, America's leading developer and supplier of laser sighting systems and tactical lights, will be sending a grand prize winner and guest on a trip to Gunsite Academy. Those two shooters will be enrolled in the Crimson Trace Gunsite 250 Laser Course scheduled during November 3-7. This program will utilize the innovative 250 Course Doctrine—plus the practical use of laser sights on a firearm.

"The 250 Laser Course is an intense, one-of-a-kind experience for shooters," said Gary Killingsworth, Crimson Trace Digital Marketing Manager. "Not only will they gain hands-on training from some of the best instructors in the business, they will learn the intricacies of shooting with both fixed sights and laser sights. We're extremely proud of this partnership with Gunsite Academy, and pleased to be able to help offer this unique training opportunity."

The contest winner— and guest—will have airfare, ground transportation, lodging and course registration fees provided. The deadline to enter the contest is September 30, 2014 and entrants must be U.S. citizens age 21—or older. Full contest details are at http://www.gunsite250lasersweepstakes.com.

The tactical applications, benefits and limitations of visible laser sights are thoroughly covered in the course. Coupled with learning Gunsite's Doctrine is also learning when, where and how to use laser sights in a variety of conditions and environments. The course will include two evenings of training during low-lighting conditions. This course, as with all 250 Courses at this firearms training facility, will include five days of range work, lectures, and intensive indoor, outdoor and low-light shooting simulators. The course will be led by Gunsite instructors Dave Starin and Chris Weare.

The deadline to enter the contest is September 30, 2014. Visit the Crimson Trace website for full details and to enter.More details about Gunsite Academy and the course can be discovered at http://www.gunsite250laser.com
