The Class will be Sept 18/19
It will be held at the Pickens County Range in Talking Rock Georgia.
One day pistol & one day carbine plus night firing
OK here is deal

I have 12 openings for the class. It will be Pistol & Carbine

I require a $100 deposit to hold your spot in the class.

Balance of $150 is due August 1

Ken'sadvanced class will cover:
Low ready presentation, high ready presentation, holster presentation
Single and multiple targets engagement
Single shot response, double and multiple shots responses, failure to stop drills
Shooting on the move, barricade, kneeling
Shooting from retention
Strong hand and weak hand only drills
Reload drills
Malfunction clearance drills
Long range shooting
Night shooting, with and without flashlight
Various standard drills
transition drills


Each student should have previous skills such as basic or intermediate defensive handgun courses offered by many other instructors or institutions. Law enforcement or military training is also accepted. If not, participations in organized shooting venues such as USPSA and IDPA with classified rating of C/Sharpshooter would be helpful. The class is fast paced and would not be a good place for someone with no previous training.

Hope you all had a good time at Ken's class.

I have quite a few pics if you all would like them.

Mike,the class was awesome and exceeded my expectations. Ken is a freakin' machine. Its awesome to see a 58 year old Dude out there walk circles around us like he did. His teaching demeanor was way above par as well. He made the class super intense and informative. The appearance by Super Dave was also cool. I'd love to see the pics and also would like to buy a copy of the video from Headhunter if Ken would authorize him to reproduce it for me. Thanks again and please keep me informed of any future training or classes. I'm 100% game for it.

I did shoot a pretty darn nice El Presidente

I was back in the holster before Marty started his reload

But then again I might have shot it once maybe twice before
