RESCHEDULED FROM ITS ORIGINAL DATE !

 

 

Fight At Night : Defensive Concepts for Dark Environments

 
Date: Saturday SEPTEMBER 22
Time: 4PM - 11PM
Location: The Ridge Dayton TN. (http://www.theridgeshooting.com/)
 Price $150 cash or check. ($50 Deposit to hold spot / balance due night of class).
Instructor: Randy Harris 
 
 This rarely offered class will cover some critical skills which include shooting with and without the help of flashlights in low or no light. We will work both proactively challenging unknown potential threats and also reacting to unexpected close range attacks in low light settings. You will see just how much light you really need to accurately shoot by and how much light you actually need to ID targets. We will also cover manipulating the pistol in the dark both with and without a light in our hands. We will load , unload and clear malfunctions with and without flashlights.  A fair amount of time will also be devoted to using the flashlight as a tool to help you get deselected in the "pre fight interview" , use the light as a distraction device and impact weapon, and as a bridge from less lethal to lethal force. 
 
 
 
Range Gear and requirements : Handheld flashlight (Surefire 6P, G2, Streamlight Scorpion or similar). Extra batteries.  Pistol and holster designed to be worn on the belt. Two spare mags  (3 total minimum) and a mag pouch. Range Safety gear (eye and ear protection) . Clothing appropriate for weather. Snacks and drinks. Also bring a few rounds of your carry ammo so you can see exactly what it does in low light !
 
Ammo: Approximately 250 rounds.
 
If you have a weapon mounted light for your pistol and want to use it for some drills then please bring it too. If your carry pistol has a light that is fine too just make sure it fits your holster. If you have a "blue gun" or airsoft gun and training knife or inert "trainer" pepper spray you want to bring feel free to do so. We will be doing some interactive exercises where students will play the role of both good guys and bad guys to get a better feel for just what each experiences when the techniques are applied in low light. If you don't see it from both sides you only know about half of what is going on. 
 
 
A $50 deposit will hold a spot for you in this class. Balance due at class. You are also welcome to pay in full in advance too. We are limiting it to 16 students so you might want to get your deposit in soon. To register or for more info either PM me here at TGO or email me at Cruelhandluke2000@yahoo.com. 
 
Hope to see you there!

Sorry it took so long to reply to you.  Everything is just fine although a little busy. My wife and I started restaurant last November. Fine dining called "Old Mill Manor". It's going great. We are open Wednesday thru Sunday so the weekends are a little busy. I'll try to get down to shoot towards the end of the year if I can. I get to shoot daily at a range I put together at the house. Still reloading. Thanks for keeping  in touch, say hi to everybody.....Bob

Reminder !!! This class is coming up in about a month. The opportunity to actually train in low light does not present itself often so don't miss out on this chance!

I took this class 2 years ago and would HIGHLY recommend it. Its not just about using a gun in low light. There is a wealth of information about self defense in general.

      On Saturday FEBRUARY 22 we will hold our first meeting for the TN/GA/AL Regional Suarez Int Training Group for 2020 ! (This was rescheduled to Feb 22 from Feb 8 due to the snow storm)

      Subject : Getting shot sucks...get off the X !!!

      Instructor: Tier 1 Suarez Int Staff Instructor Randy Harris

      Location: The Regular place - 763 CR 332 Pisgah Al 

      Time: 9AM CENTRAL time - 3PM CENTRAL time

      Price: $80 - pay at class cash or check. 

      What you need to bring: Pistol, pistol magazines and at least 150-200 rounds of ammo. Revolvers are welcome if you want to party like it is 1899. 

      We will work on our pistol skills specifically getting off the X in reactive situations, retaking the initiative and counter attacking. If your skills you learned in Close Range Gunfighting have gotten a little rusty this is the tune up you need! We will also run some "man on man" drills to test skills and add a little motivation. 
      Most ranges don't allow you to just show up and shoot while moving so don't miss out on this opportunity !



      Looking forward to seeing you there!

      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!

      Instructor Bio
      THIS IS NOT A "BASIC LEVEL CLASS" PLEASE BRING AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE FUNDAMENTALS OF MARKSMANSHIP AND UNDERSTANDING OF FUNDAMENTALS OF SAFE GUN HANDLING. 
      In this class, red dot pistol shooters will learn everything we have learned from running the red dot system since 2009. We will discuss everything from maintenance to carry and of course how to employ the modern combat handgun equipped with a red dot from zero contact to as far as the range will allow. If you are the owner of a red dot-equipped pistol, and carry it for self defense (like we do) this is an event you cannot miss.
      Each day will end with a debriefing session where any and all questions will be answered to the best of our knowledge and experience.
      CLASS AND RANGE DETAILS
      DURATION: 3 days TIME: 8:30AM to 4:30PM AMMUNITION: Approximately 500-1000 rounds (we will shoot as much as you want to shoot), and the usual stuff you bring to a high speed low drag "bitchin guy" class. RANGE & GEAR REQUIREMENTS: Bring your red dot pistol and appropriate belt, holster, spare mags, ear/eye protection etc. If you do not have a red dot pistol we have a limited number of red dot pistols available for rent. The rental cost will be $50, please call in advance to arrange rental. 423 827 9133.
      Also Helpful
      Bring spare clothing appropriate for the weather, including a hat, sunscreen, and bug repellent. Plan to bring lunch, snacks, and water (min 1 gallon per person) for the entire day unless driving to lunch is a viable option from the range location. Bring allergy medication (if needed), a chair (if you prefer), note taking supplies, and a boo boo kit (band aids, gauze pads, antiseptic wipes, antibiotic ointment and tape). You may wish to bring pads such as knee pads, elbow pads, and gloves if the class lends itself to that.
