My Dad turns 87 January 1st, and we're leaving in his airboat in about an hour to fish our way up to the hunt camp.

This may be his last year for hunting, but I hope not!

I sure enjoy getting out with him, and seeing him run that airboat.
My friend had a pace maker installed last year and missed only one month at the range... because it was too darn hot to be there at the time. We are always joking about the tune up needed in 5 (4 now) years and the replacement of parts in 10 :thumsup He cannot run up down the range, but he sure can put a bullet within the bulls eye at 25 yards without breaking a sweat.

Wow, this is the most interesting stuff I've read on shooting as far back as I can remember! Are you coming to Florida in 2016? If so, I'd certainly be interested in signing up for the course.

Like many members here, I've been in several of his classes, RSO in the one my wife attended, and can't recommend them highly enough!

Come join in, and learn the meaning of "you don't know what you don't know." :grin

BH gave you the link to the possible interest thread for this fall, I added you to the number interested. It will likely be okee only, not enough interest to get a Volusia going this fall.

Thanks for your interest and thoughts, look forward to meeting and training with you if we can get this put together sir.

So, I went to my range, the Ocala Sportsman's Association, off of Maricamp Road in Candler this morning to shoot the bowling pin match. It was really hot and I was pretty fatigued after helping to set up, shooting the match and then helping to tear down, but despite being hot and tired, I stayed to try the Quick Kill technique on a few targets. Shooting at seven yards, my first shot was about an inch to the left of the bullseye, my second about an inch and a half to the right. It was downhill from there. My next 8-10 shots were low, off the paper. Then I got a few on the paper (8" paper plate). I ended up shooting around 200 shots using the technique as I understand it. I got a good number of hits on target, but have a pronounced tendency to shoot low, which I don't blame on the technique, but on myself. I'm definitely doing something odd and am in need of some coaching, and I need to try it again when I'm not so hot and tired, as I'm sure that contributed to my inaccuracy. I can see that if one gets proficient at it, shooting speed and accuracy could be quite good because there's no messing around with sight picture. I am looking forward to the class so I can get my technique ironed out. Thanks to brownie for posting on this technique.

I am so looking forward to this! What will I need to bring to the course beyond the usual contents of the shooting bag? Specifically, do I need an IWB holster? How much ammo?
Thanks,

Owb, iwb, at least 1000 rounds, 3+ magazines, mag holder, ears, eyes, sunscreen, appropriate clothing, prep for rain is always a good idea. Cooler with fluids, no Blackhawk serpa holsters still in affect I believe.
What did I forget?

For any new member who might be reading this- There is a class coming up in early November near New Smyrna Beach which will give you the chance to learn these techniques over one very intense weekend. If there is any way you can do so, I'd highly recommend that you sign up and take the course. It will forever change your perspective on defensive use of the pistol.
