Feb 1-2 Pistol Gunfighting Dayton TN

Recommended Posts

Suarez International

February 1-2, 2020
Dayton, TN

Price: $350
Instructor: Randy Harris ( Instructor Bio )

All training must begin with fundamentals. This comprehensive fundamentals class is designed to prep you for the more advanced courses such as Close Range Gunfighting. Through a carefully designed and detailed curriculum we are able to bring you up to a level of skill in a short two day class that previously would take over 4 or 5 days to achieve at other schools.

You will learn a complete presentation of the modern combative technique of the pistol which will put you in good standing for any defensive situations you may encounter in the real world.

We will also be incorporating fundamental Point Shooting techniques which will prep you for more advanced courses. You will learn the components of various point shooting methods and integrate them into your existing skill sets. This knowledge will put you in good standing for any defensive situations you may encounter in the real world.

No experience or prior training is needed to attend this class and it is specially suitable for beginners, or as a tune-up for accomplished shooters.


DURATION: 2 days TIME: 8:30AM to 4:30PM
AMMUNITION: Approximately 300 rounds (Minimum)

Modern defensive pistol and a holster specifically made for that pistol and designed to be worn on the belt. Three (3) magazines and magazine pouch, a belt of the same width as the belt loops for the holster and magazine pouches, and range safety gear (eye protection, and ear protection).

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.

I took this course as my first real training course (the HCP course really doesn't count). Two primary components, lecture/classroom work and range work. The lecture portion was outstanding - nothing earth-shattering but presented in a way that allows you to convert that "this situation doesn't feel right" to I know why this situation feels wrong which will allow faster and more intentional responses. As someone subject to analysis paralysis, having the patterns of bad guy behavior explained will make it much easier to take action instead of standing on the street wondering why the situation feels wrong.

The shooting component was great. As someone limited to a no draw from holster indoor range for most of my shooting, the ability to combine moving, drawing and firing was great. I got better and more importantly learned what better feels like so that I can monitor myself to prevent bad habits from coming back. We got a lot of drills in and there was a lot of personal attention to my technique and motion.

I recommend Randy as an instructor and am looking forward to taking future classes from him.

      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!
