  1. Just completed this two day class. It is designed for a newer firearm owner, handgun carrier, or old dog looking for a good refresher. Class room topics included discussions on identifying predator behavior, cues of impending violence, a little brain science revolving around Boyd's OODA, Cooper's Color Code, & Hick's 'Law', Response, and dispelled a little mythology on tactical anatomy, stopping placement, power, and energy. Randy does a great job taking a concept and finding a practical example to illustrate, from driving to sports analogies. It's not all tactics and guns, he is forcing the brain to apply critical thinking, which, for adults, results in up to 70% information retention. One new student to welcome to SI Family. Robert did awesome. Found out at end of class, his first experience shooting a pistol was 7/2019, so even more impressive with how well he responded to Randy's instruction. Thanks to Bill and John from the Ridge in Dayton for hosting and assisting with range valet duties. Day one I shot my CZ 75B Omega. Kept cranking the first DA shot low and right..lack of practice, both live and dry. Ran out of ammo at the end of class, get home, realize I have no target ammo and nowhere to get it at 8 o'clock on Saturday night. I then start looking for what I do have. Aha, can load of .357Sig, P224 is in play. When did I buy all that .38? Sweet, strap on my brace of SP101s. What did I learn? You should stick to one primary pistol. The 224 with 10 round flush mag is a handful, slightly less with the .40 barrel. Using the 12 round 229 mag, it is way more controllable. Used it for drills requiring 6 or more rounds. Carried AIWB, my original carry position, no cover garment, pleased with drawstroke. Shooting the SPs was a reminder that even a 6 shot semi, with extra mags, if you can keep it running, is a better option if your BG brought a plus one (or more) to the party. Consider this drill, 3 targets, 2 shots per, before the time ends. I don't currently have the skill level to fire 4 one handed at 1 and 2, then pull my second pistol and finish off #3 with my non dominant hand. Or 5, then draw, or 3-5 and reload. I can do it, pretty smooth, but not fast enough. I did like the fact my SP groups, while slightly wider, were more centered, with either hand. Did short stroke the trigger, just once, but it still happened. Rotated through four and advising to stick to one... They're all a little different, from POA/POI, pull, reset, grip angle, and sights. The two SPs have wildly different grip angles due to the grips, so I have to adjust between the two. Not optimal for increasing core skills. Not to disappoint, He-who-trains-in-Water conjured up just a little rain on Saturday followed up with glorious weather today. I started training with Randy and Suarez in 2012 and continue to do so because the content and instruction is good. If you would like to be on the email list for future one and two day training events or have a place and interest in hosting, definitely let us know!
