sorry no can do that is the club meeting day


what kind of gear would we need? i've got a 19 and a uncle mikes paddle holster


you would also need a mag pouch a Glock 19 is just fine.

Typically I start the class with marksmanship drills to work on the basics of trigger control which is where most shooters have problem.

Then we will move to the mechanics of the draw, shooting mutiple targets and shooting while moving

Then we end the class with some complex drills and shooting problems

Mike this is my first ever course....is there any certain # of mags we need? Any need for knee pads etc? Sorry for stupid questions..just wana make sure im squared away
Link Posted: 7/26/2007 5:43:34 PM EDT
You'll only need 3 or 4 mags and I don't recall ever needing knee pads at one of his pistol classes. But if you want to strap on 10 mags and knee pads because that's how you roll, then go for it...
Link Posted: 7/29/2007 4:19:05 AM EDT
Looks like we have a pretty full class.

If any of you have any questions or are in need of something for the class please email me.

do not follow google map etc directions they are wrong!

Turn right at W Price Creek Rd 0.2 mi
Turn left at Old Jones Mountain Rd E


the part above is wrong
Price Creek rd and Old Jones Mtn road do not intersect.
Continue past Price Creek and then turn Right on Old Jones Mtn

Thank you for the great class Mike, & thanks for the crowd for being a good group to shoot with!

Definitely picked up some things & I'll need to get back out again to reinforce them.

p.s. It was damn hot, but it was manageable with water & rest breaks. Next time, more mags (high caps next time too)!

Fun!

Had i not trained all of last weekend with Ken Forbus, i would've been there too.
