About Blue Mesa Shooting Academy
Blue Mesa Shooting Academy offers what we believe is the most
complete & comprehensive schedule of adult firearm training classes
in this area. Larry McWhirter, owner and head instructor, has graduated from
Gunsite Training Academy’s basic 250 and their more advanced
350 handgun classes.
Larry has taught professionally for
Our specialty is handgun training (Home, Personal defense
but we also offer the most basic firearm training classes
handgun, rifle & shotgun classes.
Last, but certainly not least,
offer“Defensive Shotgun Training.” Our 30 hour “Academy” handgun class
is unsurpassed. Based on Gunsite’s basic & more advanced training,
we believe it is the most complete,
thorough, & comprehensive class of its’ kind in Western Colorado.
For those desiring even more training, we offer an “Advanced Academy Class.”
Blue Mesa has access to a private range, so we are the only
ones present during classes..

Streamlined one day concealed carry class information!
Blue Mesa Shooting Academy is now offering an optional, streamlined version of our one day concealed
carry (CHP) class.
This shortened version substitutes classroom dry fire practice
shooting for range work &
will shorten the regular class by a few hours, reduce the price of said
class from $110.00 to $75.00 & will
satisfy state requirements requiring students to show“competency” with a handgun. This dry fire practice is
based on Gunsite Training Academy’s teaching since Larry is a graduate of both their“250” & more advanced
“350” pistol classes.
As stated, this class is an option & we will, of course, continue to offer our regular class,
live fire shooting, for those desiring more advanced training. Additionally, streamlined students
may take the range class at a later date by paying the $35.00 additional fee for this course. Please call for further
clarifications, or for any questions.
