Is HTG Intensive a competition shooting class? 

HTG is NOT a competition handgun course, but the live-fire portion is taught by a world-champion competition [primarily] shooter. However, any real-world operator will tell you that the fundamentals of shooting fast and accurate are what make you effective, and we’ve got that covered.
