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

We will shoot several competitive drills and some deviously designed Man on Man Shoot offs and test our skills with the weapon we carry most...our pistol.

This one will be structured a little different than normal. We usually spend the morning working technique and skills and then shoot in the afternoon. NOT this time. This will be a full day of shooting so we can get all the drills in!

We will also be handing out some cool Christmas door prizes !

Looking forward to seeing you there!

      Saturday NOVEMBER 21 will be the next meeting of the TN/GA/AL Training Group.    Subject: Practical Application of Medical Skills in a Team Environment.  Shoot, Move ,Communicate and Plug Holes.
      Date : Saturday November 21, 2020
      Location: 763 County Rd 332 Pisgah AL  (35 min from downtown Chattanooga)
      Time : 9AM- 3PM Central Time
      Price : $100 Pay at class check or cash.   This meeting of the training group will cover both shooting skills and basic tac med skills in a team environment . Guest lecturer will be Jeff Bishop ( USMC, Louisville KY Fire, Police and EMS) 
      What to bring: Rifle (or PCC ) and at least 2 mags and 60 rounds for it. Pistol and at least 2 mags and 75 rounds for it. In fact, in light of the current ammo situation if you want to run a .22 rifle and / or pistol feel free to do so.  Bring as many mags as you want and as much gear and ammo as you want to carry. If you want to run this class with chest rig and armor then that is fine. If you want to run it in CCW street clothes and just a rifle with spare mag in your pocket that is fine too. Up to you. This material is not gear dependent.   Also bring any med gear you normally carry. We will take a look at and discuss items and options. If you do not already have any gear then we can show you what to get and where to get it.  

      Bring something to write with and note taking material.

      I wanted to share my experience serving as @Cruel Hand Luke 's adequate assistant at this Suarez International one day class.
      Hosted by Bill at the Ridge out in Dayton. Classroom, bathrooms, range layout works really well for this type of training.
      This class definitely highlights the critical application of trigger discipline and making a conscious decision to shoot.
      While sitting in an automobile, if you need to draw your pistol, something will get swept with the muzzle; you, your car floor / dash, windshield, non threats outside your windshield, front seat passenger plus second, maybe third row passengers.
      Talk to your significant other about the what if plan - discharging a firearm in front or behind your passenger's head, with hot brass flying is disconcerting.
      After 20+ times, you get innoculated...
      Morning was lecture, then dry fire on the range from a seated position to mimic sitting in car.
      Students paired up, dry fire,  each person went through the exercises shooting from  the driver and passenger position.
      Appropriate tunes on the radio.
      Live fire mimicked the dry fire excercises.
      Then it was time to mount up.
      Each student had an opportunity to shoot from his or her vehicle, from different points of the clock.
      Randy kept the traffic flowing pretty well, way better than the drive through at Bojangles in Oolewah.
      Day finished up with each student engaging a target three times through the passenger window, across an unpaid volunteer and danger seeker.
      With the current environment and simply transitting larger metro areas for business or personal travel,  even from your vehicle you can pay attention and evade / escape.
      We did discuss what if you have to bail out, if you've got a long gun, do you grab it?
      Consensus was, it depends. 
      A long gun is conspicuous.
      AR / AK pistol in a covert backpack has some appeal.

      Vehicle Gunfighting Fundamentals
      August 15, 2020
      Dayton, Tennessee
      Price : $200
      Instructor: Randy Harris (Randy's BIO)
      Most of us spend several hours in or around motor vehicles, yet very little time training how to fight in and around them. In this class you will learn how to do just that. We will cover everything from weapon access while seated, shooting from the car, as well as using the car itself as a barrier to attack and for cover.
      DURATION: 1 day TIME: 8:30AM to 4:30PM AMMUNITION: Approx. 200 rounds (Minimum) RANGE & GEAR REQUIREMENTS: 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.
      RANGE:  The Ridge 
      11534 Rhea County Hwy, Hwy 27
      Dayton, TN 37321
