TN / GA / AL Suarez Training Group!

 
On Saturday July 28 we will hold our July meeting for the TN/GA/AL Regional Suarez Int Training Group!


 

 

Subject: ARE YOU QUALIFIED?  

Instructor: Tier 1 Suarez Int Staff Instructor Randy Harris

Location: The usual place- Phillips/Edwards Farm 763 County Rd 332 Pisgah AL 35765 

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 250 rounds of pistol ammo. Revolvers are welcome if you want to party like it is 1899. Also a Rifle with 50 rounds and shotgun with 11 slugs and 5 rounds of 00 Buckshot if you choose to do the FBI Rifle and Shotgun qualifications. 


We will shoot  several police and federal agency qualification courses. We will shoot the FBI Pistol Qual, the ATF Pistol Qual, LAPD SWAT Pistol Qual and then the FBI Rifle and FBI Shotgun qual courses.  I will also keep records of these (if you are happy with your scores) for future reference and use . This will serve to get your shooting prowess on record in case it is ever needed in the future in some legal matter. This is also something your church might like to have for their records if you are a member of a church security team. As far as the courts are concerned if it isn't documented it didn't happen so this is an opportunity to get some official scores on paper in case you ever need them . Not only that but it will be a good day of shooting some somewhat challenging courses.

Fwiw, I like getting certificates and have retained all the timed drill sheets I've shot under instruction.

I read a blurb in a Mas article where he mentioned keeping training records (both classroom and range) can be positively spun in a court of law. You just didn't strap on a gun and go dancing...

Would like to attend, but 6 hours of fun in the sun,  late July in Northern Alabama, requires more bada$$ery than I have.

Just a quick reminder....everyone is welcome to this! You don't have to be an alumni to attend this. And with it priced essentially the same as a handgun carry permit class it is a great value.

So come on out and take advantage of a chance to shoot the FBI, ATF, and LAPD Swat quals plus the rifle and shotgun quals ...and time permitting maybe the Air Marshal Qualification. 

Hope to see you there!

Reminder on ammo counts...it is 250 pistol, 50 rifle and for the shotgun it is 11 slugs and 5 buckshot. That IS correct 11 slugs and 5 buckshot.

OK guys and gals this one is coming up TOMORROW!!!!!!

So grab your pistol rifle and shotgun and come on out!

Now, I have been asked if you don't have a rifle or a shotgun can you still participate? YES. If you JUST want to shoot pistol that is fine. If you JUST want to shoot pistol and rifle OR shotgun but not the other that is fine too. And if you need a loaner shotgun or rifle we can hook you up there too. So we can definitely hook you up. I'll have a Scattergun Technologies Remington 870 Border Patrol and a Colt 6721 with Aimpoint as loaners (or maybe even my Steyr AUG if you'd rather shoot it).

If you want to use the loaner guns you just need to bring the ammo (50 rds of brass cased 223/556 for rifle - no steel case ammo in my gun please -and 11 slugs and 5 rds of  00 buck for shotgun)

      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!

      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.
