This class is a compressed 1 day learning experience where students will explore the essential skills for operating their pistol in a safe and competent manner and placing accurate hits on target. Whether we are training for a pistol match or for self defense the skills we cover in this class are applicable. 
Some topics covered are....
 "The 4 universal safety rules", "Gun Safety as a Lifestyle",  "The 4 Count Drawstroke", "The Secret to Pistol Shooting" , "Draw quickly, Shoot Carefully, Reholster Reluctantly" , "These things generally work better when they are loaded", " If it stops working fix it and get back to work", "Grip might be why you are missing," , "We are shooting a pistol here not milking a cow", "There is an easy way to get better " , "You can be as good as you want to be...." and many more. 
This will essentially be a "1 day Technical Shooting Skills class". Several of you have been asking for a " basic shooting class" and we all know someone who NEEDS a basic class (whether they know it or not😉) and this is a great opportunity to get them squared away. This class is all about learning good safe solid combative gun handling (drawing, shooting ,reloading , malfunction clearance) and learning to shoot as efficiently and effectively and as accurately as possible . I'm going to limit this to 12 people so that everyone gets the best experience and the attention they need.  If you are interested yourself or you have a candidate for this class in mind let me know. This is your chance to learn it the right way from the beginning or to further hone your skills if you are an experienced shooter. 
Then on Sunday Nov 14 we will be offering our Handling Traumatic Injury class.
Harris Combative Strategies
Handling Traumatic Injury 
Date: Nov 14 2021
Time: 8:30PM - 4:30pm Eastern Time
Location: The Ridge Dayton TN. (http://www.theridgeshooting.com/)
 Price $160  ($50 Deposit to hold spot - See details below).
Instructor: Randy Harris Instructor BIO
What to bring: Note taking material ,Whatever first aid kit or blow out kit you have, Eye and Ear Protection, Handgun and carry gear and about 10 rounds of ammo . Bring a round of your carry ammo if you want to see how it actually performs when shot through meat. 
This class will be a study in first aid in a combative environment and treating traumatic injuries most likely suffered in street altercations. This is not a Red Cross first aid class. It is also not an austere environment surgery class. It more closely resembles Military PHTLS (Pre Hospital Trauma Life Support)  or TCCC (Tactical Combat Casualty Care) with an eye toward treating the kind of wounds typically seen in stabbings, shootings and mass casualty events. This class is a deep dive into the use of direct pressure, tourniquets, hemostatic agents like Quick Clot and Celox , chest seals, pressure bandages and much more. This life saving material is appropriate for treating not only common injuries caused by gunshots, knives and impact weapons but also virtually any penetrating trauma, puncture wound, laceration or cut. This one will be limited to 20 students. 
My good friend and medical skills mentor Jamie Jackson will be assisting with this class. Jamie brings over 40 years of experience in the medical field and is a wealth of knowledge. He has worked in healthcare for 48 years. Jamie was a Navy Corpsman (non-combat) '73-'82. Served with Marine Security Guards Embassy Duty. ICU and ER RN 1982-2021. CCRN, TNCC, ACLS, PHTLS. CONTOMS course at Angola and member of Louisiana Tactical EMS long ago. He taught immediate trauma treatment, wound packing, TQ application and precepted all new Nursing staff as a part of his ER duties at Methodist Hospital.
