An AAR of a prior offering of Performance Pistol is available here:

To quote the author of that AAR in another thread:

"Out of all the courses I have taken, I would rate Performance Pistol as the most impactful on my skill as a pistol shooter. Itís not that we learned anything revolutionary, it was that it was taught in a way that the entire line saw near instant improvement, as we built on the skill taught and ingrained that into our fundamentals; smaller groups and more precise targeting became common, easy, and just as fast as sloppier work."
