  1. ... and he walked right up and hit me in the gut. It's true. There may even be photographic evidence. Nice to meet you, Randy. Your class seemed well received. I did have to give a little side eye to the one student I overheard telling you that your's was her favorite class of the conference as that student was also in mine.
  2. Now I know why he was pointing and snickering, but then again, it could have been all of the other legit reasons to point and snicker at me.
  3. Hi, I’m Randy and I’m going to gut punch you.
  4. Paul Carlson was the host, and here is what he wrote about it: https://safetysolutionsacademy.com/lessons-from-a-negligent-discharge-at-mag-40/ John Johnston was in the class, and here are his thoughts: http://ballisticradio.com/2018/05/26/what-do-i-think-about-the-nd-at-mag-40/ Finally, here is a followup by Mr. Ayoob: https://www.backwoodshome.com/blogs/MassadAyoob/follow-up/
  5. I'm happy to introduce the FPS-1 Target. A downloadable pdf file is available at the link for those who would like to use it. link
  6. I thought you were in the class?
  7. I assisted Tom Givens with a Rangemaster Instructor Development Course this weekend in Texas. We were are Karl Rehn's range near Giddings, which I am told is the North Central Plains geographic region. The sandy dirt on the range choked numerous Sig 320 mags to death. One Magpul G mag briefly succumbed. The only OEM Glock mag to have trouble was a pre-2004 stamped “LE” mag. I don’t think this really says much about a carry pistol as you won’t be repeatedly dropping your mags in the sand while walking about, but those Sig mags just kept failing while the others ran.
  8. One of the Sig shooters has confirmed to me that blowing out the mags with compressed air and using some Remington dry lube solved their problem. One thing to keep in mind is that these mags were being constantly dumped. That's not going to happen in daily carry. It does indicate that the Sig mags are more susceptible to debris, but that can be minimized. I'm not in the market for the 320 line; so, this discovery really doesn't impact my decision; however, I will be watching the 365 with some interest.
  9. Picked up off the deck, wiped off, filled, re-used.
  10. Thank you for the kind words.
  11. April 7 & 8, I was pleased to present a pair of classes in Waverly, TN. It snowed. In April. In Tennessee. Here is a review written by Dr. Sherman House.
  12. Here is a course review of my Social Levegun block at TacCon. This class generates more conversation than any other class in my lineup, but unfortunately, it doesn't sell well. I was very pleased to have 18 students in the TacCon block.
  13. Thanks. That review is from the Civilian Gunfighter blog. I think Dr. House's blog is Civilian Defender. Dr. House is hosting me this weekend in Waverly for both a pistol class and a shotgun class; so, hopefully he will have positive reviews.
  14. Many big name instructors donated classes for this raffle, and I did too. It's your chance to attend the Tactical Conference or take a class for as little as $25. All proceeds support "The Mingle" which is an event for women in the self defense and shooting community. https://www.auctria.com/ev?site=4568008a-c3d3-4cb5-b323-d8efc2708952 ***Note: I have no financial interest in this event.
  15. Aqil is here, too. That makes it a party.
  16. Cruel Hand Luke and I were both presenters at TacCon-18. Both of us are mentioned in this review: Civilian Gunfighter He's going to do a more detailed write up on my levergun class. I'll had a link when it is posted.
  17. Yay!! Tiffany is here!!
  18. Don't shoot the big yellow object!!
  19. I went to the truck and got a second trauma kit.
  20. I'm hosting this course, but I have no financial interest in it. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm hosting Dave Spaulding of Handgun Combatives for his Adaptive Combat Pistol class on 4/21-22 in Watkinsville. The cost is $425. The round count is 600. Course Description: Its not the person with the fastest draw or can shoot the tightest groups that will win a gunfight. It’s the person with a solid set of essential skills and the ability to recognize a rapidly unfolding situation and adapt accordingly. This course will review essential combat shooting skills and will then add skills that are not normally found in a basic square range course. Use of cover, unconventional shooting positions, multiple target engagement, one hand shooting/manipulation and decision making/cognition drills skills will be emphasized. Adaptation is the key to prevailing in a situation where you life is on the line and this course will help bolster those skills. Register at the Handgun Combatives web page under the "upcoming classes" section, or you can mail payment to Mr. Spaulding. The address is on his web page.
  21. We ran a ladies only Defensive Pistol Skills class this weekend. It was only advertised at a local ladies' only match and in a few shooting groups on Facebook. We had 13 motivated and eager ladies. Not a single one of them showed up with the husband/boyfriend/gun-shop-guy recommended j-frame. Ages ranged from early-20s all the way up to 69. Two were military veterans, and one is currently serving Coast Guard.
