Hi Anthony I just wanted to tell you that, a few days removed, Sims is hands down the most valuable firearms training I think I'll ever be able to take outside of the armed forces. I feel this makes me far more aware of not only how I may actually react during a home invasion situation, but also what I can do from a training and "system" perspective to improve the survivability of myself and my family. Things that Chuck & John pointed out that are very simple and inexpensive (like $30) changes in and around my house that can have a real impact on improving my response time and response effectiveness are worth the price of admission alone. I'll definitely be back for Sims 2 & 3 as soon as I can fit it in my schedule.
Anyway thanks again, awesome class & I'm glad you fought the battle to provide it for us. I'm certainly spreading the word about it.
Anthony - I had a fantastic time at the Level 1 Urban Pistol class on March 26th. The instructors and drills were top notch and the class attracted some really quality students. I feel like if I could do that all day every day, I'd be the happiest man alive. I would very much like to attend as much pistol training as you offer, including a Level 2, any force-on-force, as well as whatever continuing advanced training you might develop in the future.
In addition to new skills and methods, the class gave me a good appreciation of what I'm capable of as a shooter and I know, that with the help of your capable and encouraging staff, the sky is the limit. I'd like to take this chance to give a shout out to Chuck Mollineaux who's personal attention, encouragement, advice, patience, and professionalism helped me to get the absolute most out of the class. Keep up the great work and keep me in the loop about future training opportunities, especially the next Level 2 Urban Pistol opportunity.
Thanks again, Jon H
I signed up for some 1:1 training with GunForHire and had a couple or so hours with Chuck today. This was probably the hardest/toughest but best training I've had to date. Getting the 1:1 feedback really made a difference in my technique and in solving some of the inconsistencies I was finding due to my stance, sight picture and trigger control that are not possible during a standard class with many students.
Definitely worth the time/effort, came back exhausted. Shot around 250 rounds between the PPQ and Sig P226. Now I just have to repeat the exercises during my RTSP trips. It was very rewarding to see my groups at 10 yards significantly improve during the couple of hours and really shows how much difference technique makes - i.e. I am limiting my accuracy rather than the firearm.
At the start of the class Chuck asked me what I'd like to focus on, I showed him the Travis Haley target from my recent RTSP trip (http://njgunforums.c...-target-drills/) where I had struggled to hit 5 shots in 5 dots. We tried 5 dots at 3 yards, then switched to 3/5/7/10 yards exercises with the GFH targets and focusing on technique including stance, arms, grip, sigh picture, trigger control etc. Exercises included rapid 2 shot, 1 shot; 3 shot, 2 shot and transitions to targets that were to my left and right. All the time focus on the core fundamentals.
For the last exercise of the day we switched back to the Travis Haley target and I scored multiple 5 shots, 5 dots
Highly recommended for anyone looking to improve their technique with some good, constructive feedback from the Instructor.
