Went to the December 3rd class.
After dropping all my junk in the heated tent I signed all the legal stuff. Then had one of the donuts that one of the other students was nice enough to bring.
We went over typical marksmanship exercises at the start. Draw, fire two, three, or four rounds on the targets then reholster.
Moving at your own pace and staying safe was emphasized.
I've done several classes prior at GAT Guns and with Rob Pincus but on Saturday I got to do something new. Shooting from retention.
That was a lot of fun. I was surprised how accurate one could be while shooting rapidly with one hand at closer ranges.
We shot some steel shooting while moving drills. One guy decided to shoot the chain. John's, the instructor, son fixed it right away though.
We played around in the dirt a bit with they call the Nine Hole. It's a barricade with nine holes. The idea is to shoot through all the holes with each hole getting closer to the ground. Took some athleticism to get through it.
At the end we finished with a minute or two long course made up of several steel plates, a hostage target, and a dueling tree.
Everyone got to go through it solo. Afterwards students competed against each other.
I missed the competition portion as I had to leave a little early.
Overall it was very beneficial to get to a more open range and stretch out.
Personally I feel myself advancing and becoming more confident. At one point John mentioned that it looked like I had done this before.
Great and productive way to spend the afternoon. Very cost effective as well.
Will definitley go back to one of their advanced courses that they are putting together.
