Tactical Performance

Some great information is available to those interested in learning to take their passion for shooting sports to a higher level and to understand the fundamentals of shooting in a different light.

The approach of these courses offered is to use your body mechanics to improve your personal performance on the range.

I look forward to meeting those that are interested to spend some time of the range to further their personal development in a great sport. John Dzurka

John’s mission is to provide shooters of all ages and skill levels with training that enhances their knowledge, skills, and attitudes on firearm safety in a controlled manner.

Consistency & Efficiency leads to Proficiency = Speed


“John is an excellent trainer for beginners up to competitive shooters.  He offers a broad range of group training opportunities to help develop strong shooting foundations, acquire IPSC Black Badge, as well as advanced skills, along with 1-1 coaching to fine-tuning your shooting abilities.  I have taken several of his trainings, and he has been well organized, on time, respectful of all participants regardless of shooting level, and demonstrates a great deal of integrity and commitment in his work, especially with safety.  If an opportunity arises to take a class or get some 1-1 with John, take it – it is well worth it!” Brenda S.

“John has the rare skill of being both a winning competitor AND a great instructor. His energy is upbeat and positive yet has the ability to demand more out of you as a shooter/competitor. The classes I took from him were instrumental in taking me through my first year to class-winning performances with his performance drills and custom tips that made sense.” Brad S.

“Wow just wow! Always puts on such a great course. I shot lots,I learned lots and he has such an amazing approach to getting his point across. I will definitely take his constructive advice to heart and practice what he wants me to work on. It always amazes me how I can learn so much even from what he suggests for other shooters. Thanks again, John, for coming to Bonnyville to pass on your wisdom!!!” Roxanne C.

“I have taken multiple classes with John from my Black Badge training to practical and performance pistol classes, and in every class, I always learn something new.  He tailors the classes to ensure lots of rounds downrange, so no matter your personal level, you will see improvement and progress.  Right from the very first class covering the basics, I gained confidence in handling my firearm, and am no longer apprehensive clearing malfunctions or shooting from less than ideal positions.  The advanced classes have never failed to enlighten and educate and have improved my performance in IPSC competition.  John incorporates problem solving and critical thinking with body mechanics and muscle memory into a satisfying learning experience.  His expertise and confidence ensure a safe day at the range, no matter the participants or conditions.  Even after 5 or 6 classes with John, I look forward to enrolling again when he comes back to town – it’s time and money well spent if you want to be a better shooter!” Marina C.

“I have had the pleasure of taking 4 of John’s courses over the past 3 years. Each one building on clear foundational principles of body mechanics, efficiency of movement and stability.  These are shooting courses that quickly identify where you need to improve and how you can excel. The workshops are limited in size which lets the focus be on the individual
while working in a small group setting.” Rob M.
