YSINTG® | You Suck! It’s Not the Gun!® is our core firearms class. Developed after witnessing scores of shooters blaming their pistol sights for missing their intended targets, YSINTG shows how focusing on and practicing the core fundamentals of shooting will greatly improve the marksmanship of any shooter regardless of skill level.
This class takes pistol shooting back to the basics. In an attempt to focus on the defensive use of a handgun, many classes do not focus a great deal of time on the ability to place a bullet precisely where the shooter wants it to go. This class is aimed at fixing that. After this class, most students show drastic improvement in their pistol shooting accuracy.
This is a great class for new shooters or experienced shooters that need to go back and refresh on the fundamentals. “YSINTG” is one of our most popular courses, and it the course most repeated by our students!

My first MDFI class, I really enjoyed the challenge of coming to grips with the fact that I needed more training in relationship to grip, sight picture, and especially trigger pull understanding. Trek and the entire Cadre staff was excellent with personal advice when needed. I will most definitely be back for more training in the near future.
This class is so very well named! Not sure if it is because I am relatively new to shooting a firearm or what, but I left the class kind of discouraged thinking that that the uphill climb to improving my self defense skills was mentally too big for me. All that said, a few days later after the class, clarity came as to what I really needed to focus on over the next couple of months before I took the Foundation Handgun class. The MDFI team did such a great job of focusing on those fundamentals that they quickly came back. It was a great incentive to schedule the next class knowing I needed to get things sorted out. Due to MDFI's training and some diligence on my part I was recently able to pass the "meaningless" qualifier in the Foundation class. The next sets of classes are already scheduled. Thank you Cadre, again and again!
I just took YSITNG. Awesome class. Trek and Grant were great instructors. They presented their curriculum in such a way that it was not only informative but easily digested and entertaining. Learning to diagnose shooting errors on paper and how to analyze your own shooting performance was like being given the keys to the kingdom! They encouraged questions and gave no BS answers with all the whys. Bottom line, I feel like a better shooter with what was taught. I will be going back for more classes.
YSINTG is a great class for anyone wanting to either learn or revisit the fundamentals of pistol marksmanship. The teaching technique, cadance, and drills are outstanding and executed in a way that makes leaning enjoyable. I look forward to my next class with MDFI!
I just took YSINTG for the first time today. My hope was to hone my skills while using as little precious ammo as possible. Trek and his amazing codre do an awesome job of instructing and diagnosing the cause of misplaced shots. Also they keep security and safety first and foremost and teach us all to do the same. Aside from that there is always a great group of people that are drawn to such classes. I am looking forward to taking more classes with MDFI and hope to see you there!
