Recommended Posts

I'm posting this for Tom who as most of you now is a friend and mentor of mine. I've taken both of these as a student and highly recommend them. I included the links to Eventbrite to sign up next to the title of each class. 


INTENSIVE PISTOL SKILLS (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/intensive-pistol-skills-tennessee-tickets-50644483012)


Intensive Pistol Skills is an extensive work-out of the essential skills involved in self-defense with a handgun. Topics covered include

presentation from the concealed carry holster;

accurate shooting at high speed;

fast, reliable reloading techniques;

one handed shooting;

malfunction remedies;

and much more. Students will fire approximately 1,000 rounds.

This is not a beginner level class. Students should know how to safely operate their handgun and have appropriate concealment gear. You will need a belt holster, of leather or kydex construction, with a covered trigger guard. You will need at least three magazines, one in the gun and two spares. You will need a concealment garment, to conceal your gear as in every day carry in a big city. A detailed equipment list and directions will be sent to registered students.

Please note this class is on Friday and Saturday. We have a one day Defensive Shotgun Course on Sunday, Sept 29.


DEFENSIVE SHOTGUN ( https://www.eventbrite.com/e/rangemaster-defensive-shotgun-course-tickets-50567331249 )


The shotgun is one of the most effective and versatile weapons available to the average private citizen or police officer. It is also the least understood and most under-utilized weapon system. Learn how to properly select, modify, feed and operate the defensive shotgun for optimum effectiveness. This intensive course will teach you efficient techniques for handling and shooting the shotgun under stressful conditions.

Topics covered include:

Firearms safety, including considerations specific to shotguns

Historical context and development of the defensive shotgun

Selection of the fighting shotgun

Modifications and Accessories

Ammunition selection and capabilities

Patterning for optimum performance

Nomenclature and mechanical operation

Shooting technique

Loading/reloading techniques

Safe storage and ready conditions, including cruiser ready
