The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Is it February already? Time again for new shooter and concealed carry classes this weekend. So it looks like this so far. 













Little things matter to people that are new to the community. Perceptions are reality to some.  Presenting a professional appearance counts. If you come off as some yahoo in appearance or demeanor you are doing a disservice to the legal gun owning community. 

Next? The good, the bad, and the ugly.














A chance to show students that although the handguns look about the same and shoot the same caliber rounds, they are totally different in the way they operate and shoot. 

So tomorrow I wander off to teach new shooters.  I am honored and humbled to do so. Being an Ambassador and instructor carries profound responsibilities in my opinion.  I only have one chance to get this right.  I am not as vocal in this space as many are on rights and such (in fact here I fear I would be preaching to the church) .  I like to think I am just as effective in my efforts however.

So breakfast looks like this.


 











Classes are beyond capacity for tomorrow and so we opened up the second classroom and a principal of the range will pick up the overflow. 

Wish us luck tomorrow. Sunday promises to be interesting. I have a full CCH class. We also have a fundraiser going on.  We are as Jennifer points out some awesome people. 

I know at the end of this I will probably fall back to this on Monday.

  1. Have fun. Wish I could join you in class. I'm rusty, even though I've been a shooter for over fifty years.

    1. Thanks Shepard. That means much. I will not quote the old saw that "those than cannot teach". Classes went well.

  7. That's a very fortunate bunch of students. If you'd been closer I would have sent Lu to you for training in a second.
