Awesome class with CCWI today. It was Advanced Handgun. I was doing al R-I-G-H-T until the moving right and left part. Just call me Lefty now. I bumped into Dave on my left two or three times, which would make me lose track of my round count and go to slide lock. I felt a little better after the dueling trees with Swdr was coaching me through. Very fun class.
Thanks for the range report... my wife was mentioning we ought to take one of ccwI classes one of these days...
The if your not making mistakes thing is so true... amen
Now add the instructors perspective...
Never, Never, Never anger the "demonstration gods"...
I must have done some major sinnin' this last week as I was teaching officers at the range and the "demo" thing just couldn't get it together... its my eyes, or my gun, or my... fill in the blank... but I couldn't pull it together and be the awe inspiring instructor showing said learnee's the perfect shot... humbling what... and got me back on the range working my own program ... It ain't all about buying new guns... sometimes it's about shootin' the old ones!
