Picture this. You and your best shooting friend spend three action-packed days training together at the famous Gunsite Academy, each with your own Ruger MAX-9® pistol!

Experience World Class Training 

“The original ‘American Pistol Institute’ (API), now known as Gunsite Academy, offers firearms training to elite military personnel, law enforcement officers and free citizens of the US.”

“The 3-day 150 Pistol Class is an excellent opportunity for you to understand the Gunsite experience and what it can do for you. The course will cover the Modern Technique, speed reloads vs. tactical reloads, weapon malfunctions, pivots and turns, barricades, and tactical guidelines.”

Your Next Handgun

“The versatile Ruger MAX-9® will meet your personal protection needs. Comfortable enough to conceal in an inside the waistband holster or pocket holster, this micro-sized pistol has it all. Slim, lightweight, and compact while still providing a capacity of up to 12+1 rounds of 9mm ammunition.”

The Odds Look Good

Only 1,000 raffle tickets will be available. That’s right!
