When: Saturday, 10 DEC, 2022

Cost: $200.00 plus $20.00 range fee

Times: 9am-4pm
Be at the range by 8:30AM to sign in at the office. We will then go to the Bay and gear up.

Requirements: Eye and ear protection; up to 600 rounds of ammo if you shoot a high cap pistol or up to 400 rounds for single stack firearms; as many mags/speed loaders as you have; a belt, holster and an open mind.

Course description of skills covered:
1. Range and Gun Safety
2. WW2 ½ hip-Elbow Up/Elbow Down: [EU/ED]
3. WW2 ¾ hip-hand/eye coordination with and without movement
4. WW2 Point Shoulder
5. Zipper
6. Using skills on multiple threats
7. EU/ED with movement

A well made strong side holster and sturdy belt will be required for this course. Use of an IWB holster must be approved by the instructor. We will be drawing from the holster 90% of the time all weekend. A holster will allow the students be able to re-holster an unloaded firearm and be safe once off the firing line while reloading mags/speed loaders without having to handle the firearm until returning to the line. No BH Serpa holsters on the range that weekend.

These skills are reactionary in nature, similar to having to draw from the holster out on the streets if one needs to defend themselves. I understand some may use a cross draw holster, or fanny pack, or perhaps pocket carry presently, but once students have completed the course, I believe they'll find the benefit of a good strong side outside or inside the waistband holster with their future carry requirements.

Kydex or leather is acceptable. I use both in classes and either will suffice equally with the skills covered.

Any questions about the course, the materials listed we'll cover, etc. don't hesitate to ask. Look forward to meeting new and prior students.

I would love to attend any/all of your coruses, but it's a haul for me to get down to South Florida for such a short period of time. If you decide to offer one in the Tampa Bay area, I'm all in.

Darn! Wish I could attend. I certainly need a tune up. But, I have a wedding that Saturday. If the bride and/or groom change their minds, I will revisit this thread.

I have Paula thinking about this one. She mentioned the other night that she’d like to go to another one; so here it is!

I hope to be able to make a commitment for either one or two soon!
