I participated on this class and I had a blast…
I been involved with handguns for around a year and a half or so. So, I'm a rookie at this and I was really interested in some Beginner type of class that starts from the very basics and keeps going up. (the only other class I taken is the one for my concealed handgun license)
Regarding the class, the atmosphere was very professional and everybody had a great attitude… from the beginning Ben and Bob were very focus on Safety, explaining the 4 safety rules and making sure everybody was in sync regarding the handling of the pistols at the range.
I enjoyed the whole thing but my favorites drills were the malfunction drills, how to position yourself when shooting around corners (example house defense) and shooting from kneeling position… things that I never done before and now I can take and practice over and over again.. very useful stuff.
Also for me, the discussion of mindset and self defense was a CRITICAL one. (one of the things that convinced me to continue improving and take more training in the future)
I also learned that I need to work on my trigger control, so I'll be doing lot of dry firing with my Gen4.
At the end of the day, we did some friendly long distance shooting competition (one target/one bullet) and I was able to try other students guns (as an example I wanted to try the Shield)
This was my first training class other than my CHL and basically I will sum up it like this:
safe + lot of shooting + lot of fun + learning new different techniques = awesome day!
Can't go wrong with that!
This is the only photo I took, when Bob was showing us how to shoot from kneeling position.
