Looking at the course of fire I noticed that 10 shots are fired in 2 shot exercises in 3 seconds in stage 1 B.

How does this work in the revolver portion?  I'm assuming you're given time and allowed to reload after 6 rounds to finish off 10 shots.

Would the same hold for shooting a 1911 .45 that doesn't hold 10 rounds?

I also noticed they're allowing red dots sights as long as there's no magnification, it a good thing as red dots are getting more popular.  Thanks for looking.

By putting a break into the shooting string. They try to keep it 'revolver neutral'. Typically, load 4.  Shoot twice. Load 6 if possible and finish, but if it's a 5 shot shoot once, pause and let the 5 shot student load 1, finish string.

Edit:  excellent if they're allowing red dots, I haven't seen anything new from RSD on that subject.  That was in the pre-class email?

Edit 2:  I see a student w/ a revolver about twice a year, maybe.

Thanks, yes they just sent a email reminder and red dots were mentioned, I think they excluded red dots on my initial confirmation email but they're gtg now.

Can you show the language they used for the red dots?  I am not doubting you, but would love to see how they are wording it.
