We talked about training on last week's Squirrel Report, in light of some recent training courses that left folks feeling, well, less-than-excited about attending a class. I stand by my assessment of Combat Focus Shooting, though, as a great intro to defensive handgun training.
I wrote an article about my experience getting ready for my very first training class at Shooting Illustrated.
It's centered more on the process of getting ready to take the class - any class, really - and the apprehensions and misgivings that I had going into taking a class of any kind before I actually got there. In a nutshell (although you really should go read the article; I'm especially proud of this one), don't let your fears hold you back - while, yes, you might turn out to be "that guy" after all, you also might not - and you may very well learn something.
Thanks again to the guys at Down Range Firearms Training for putting on an excellent class!
That is all.
