Thanks for looking...

 

Students who wish to appendix carry may do so outside my class. However the primary reason I don't allow appendix carry is because it's hard for me to look at the student's hand and ensure they are exercising proper trigger finger discipline as they draw. This is an intermediate level class and based on prior classes, I don't have the comfort level with the average shooter to ensure their safety in a public class environment.

Also plenty of people have shot their nuts off. I am sure the counter-argument can also be made with two words, "glock leg".  But that's the way it is.

Agenda items were impressive. Reflected strong knowledge regarding defensive pistol training. Have taught others how to draw so understand the need to see that straight index finger as gun comes out of the holster (do lots of dryfire drawing first you probably do.)

In all honesty, I have absolutely no idea. I've never been a part in the "NRA Defensive Pistol" class.

While I am absolutely sure many of the skills and techniques overlap, the course curriculum is entirely invented by me.  Sure I have taken bits and pieces from other instructors, but I put it all together into a course that flows best for my teaching style, the space in which I teach, and realistically where I think the average Joe civilian needs the most skill growth for the real world, based upon observations of real world defensive gun use.

Cool. I glanced at the course description online and it looked like it was similar, so I thought I'd ask. Good luck with the class!

I'm waiting for last minute. I'm dealing with a health thing, but if everything me is feeling kosher and there's still space I'll get in on this. I still owe you a beer for directing me to the best roofing guy I've ever worked with. My neighbors still comment on how much better my house looks than theirs.

Understood. I hope all goes well with your health thing. Take care of yourself.

I'm glad Paul worked out well for you.  You can buy me a beer after class ;)

Calendar wise I can commit now butt wallet was either stolen or lost last Saturday.

State tells me I should have a new FOID in three weeks.

Can you take a verbal commitment? I can put money down once my card arrives.

Transplant, normally I don't take verbal commitments. However, a mutual friend of ours contacted me privately and said you're good for it. 

Consider it done. I'll hold a spot for you. Please do sign up when your new card arrives.
