General Observations from a New Shooter

Mrs. Peel said: As I'm exploring firearms this summer, I'm also having fun checking out ranges. I enjoyed my first visit to the Woodland Park Range this week - treating myself to a rare day of hooky from work! First of all, a big "thank you" to @Gunsrlegal - a super-nice lady and Woodland Park range member who graciously invited me to try out her full-size M&P (not the Shield, which I tried at TTC). She did that to make a point - that people with small hands don't need to limit themselves to small guns. Her hands are very small (even a squeak smaller than mine) and yet, with a small back strap, she has found that gun to be VERY comfortable despite the double-stack... and thought I would too. I was surprised! Yeah, it was easy to shoot, very comfortable. (Eegads... why are my choices expanding rather than narrowing as I had hoped? LOL) Anyway, while there, I also saw @Sandywho runs the Second Amendment Women (SAW) group out of that range. Only met her once before... so that was a pleasant surprise too! General Observations: Facilities - clean, contemporary design and bold black-white-red color scheme throughout the facility - a sharp-looking interior IMO! The range we were on was nice, too. The air felt good - not smoky at all. They have a tall counter behind the ports with lots of well-sized cubbies underneath to stash range bags (sheesh, why doesn't every range have that? I've been to some where you're just stashing them on the dirty floor or balancing them on too-narrow benches, etc.)... so, good interior design. The ladies' room was nice and clean. And YIKES, the size of that [...]

Thank you for everything & for having such an amazing team.

Hey Anthony, Hope you are doing well. I just did Urban Precision Rifle out in PA this past weekend & had such a great time. It was amazing being out in the fresh air & shooting that far. Your team did an amazing job putting everything together & teaching us. They took great care of us & it was so appreciated. I learned so much & can’t wait for the next level of Precision Rifle. I especially want to say how amazing Jimmy G. Is. I know you know it & I have said it before, but that man never stops. He is always there to chat with & help everyone & get us pointed in the right direction. No matter how many questions or how often we all bother him while he is slammed with 1,000 other things on his plate, he always takes the time to help & make everyone feel important. A lot of people may not see or even know what goes on behind the scenes to put all these classes together, but I just wanted to say all of his hard work & dedication to making GFH such an amazing experience for all of us doesn’t go unrecognized & is beyond appreciated. I have no idea how he does it, but you found an amazing person to represent you and your brand. Thank you for everything & for having such an amazing team. They just seem to get better & better. I feel more & more proud & privileged to be a member every day. Best, Steve K.

I started to clear floor by floor with my partner…

Hey John my name is Jason and I've taken Urban Pistol 1 & 2, and Urban Carbine 1 & 2. I'm not sure if you heard about the active shooter in the Bronx, at Bronx Lebanon Hospital earlier today... I just started my tour at the time and I was one of the first few cars on scene with gunshots ringing out and chaos with multiple people shot and one DOA at the time of my arrival. Armed with my S&W 5946 9mm service pistol, along with two extra magazines, a plate carrier and my trauma medical bag slinged across my body, I started to clear floor by floor with my partner and a few other officers. To make a very long story short I cleared every floor from the 1st to 17th looking for wounded, and clearing out civilians while this madman was still on the loose. At the time we had no known location of the perpetrator, one thing that I noticed which I found very weird was the fact that I wasn't nervous or scared... at all, besides the adrenaline coursing through me I was very focused and ready for anything that came at me. As you heard I'm sure, the perpetrator "neutralized himself" on the 17th floor before we got to him. I'm sending you this email to thank you for your classes and I know for a fact that's one of the reasons why I was on "operator" mode and I was able to stay cool calm and collected. I came to the realization that I was ready for this because of the training that I have attended and my mindset.I appreciate the rest of the instructors that also took [...]

My 8 year old daughter…

Anthony, I was a little wary taking my 8-year-old daughter, Miriam, to your range today. I wanted to do an outdoor range for the first time, because indoor ranges are loud and fast paced. Initially, we got in to the 25-yard range, and my daughter was overwhelmed. The RSO's were super helpful and did everything they could, but it was just a loud environment, and it was too much for her, and she asked to go. So I obliged. Then Jimmy saw us leaving the range, gave us a couple new targets, sent us to the 50-yard range which was empty. He told the RSO to give Miriam special instruction with her new 22 bolt-action rifle. And after 2 or 3 shots where she had a hard time getting a good site picture, we had her shooting a 5-shot, 1.5" group. She was manipulating the bolt and the safety confidently, and had a great time. I just put her to bed, and she asked when we'd go back to the range. Thank you for training your staff so well and being so generous and understanding. It's clear to me that you really care about spreading gun culture and not just making a quick buck. P.S., she also got a kick out of meeting you and getting the challenge coin. She occasionally hears me listening to GFH Radio in the car (which I don't leave on for long because she's a little young) but she knew who you were from the show.
