I'm able to move a little bit better today.
I apologize in advance, I did not take notes at the end of the day, so my summary is probably missing a few things, and lacking in detail.
There were 6 students in this class.
We started with a quick Navy Drill to assess everyone's skill level.
Two of us (who can't read) needed to zero our rifles.
We then jumped in head first.
We covered different kneeling positions, as well as different supine and prone positions.
Then we went into bilateral shooting (switching shoulders). These were hasty transitions, and dedicated transitions to the opposite shoulder. (I discovered that I am a decent shot left handed.
After that we went into one handed shooting, both dominant and support side.
Once we had the basics down, we threw in one handed malfunction clearance.
We covered a small amount of shooting on the move as well.
We then moved on to the highlight of the class, which was shooting cars, in around, over, under, from, etc. We weren't supposed to shoot the vehicles, but that Honda had such a nice exterior I couldn't help but put three rounds through the top of the fender. Remembering bore/sight offset is key to making hits when using cover.
We ran different scenarios/drills involving the vehicles, and were able to experience firing our rifles in enclosed spaces (mini van).
The end of the first day ended with a team head-to-head relay on steel plates at ~75 yards.
The end of the second day ended with an individual timed course involving the vehicles, a 50lb bag of sand (sand baby), and utilization of nearly every topic we covered over the two days.
