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 :gaming:

Highly recommended for anyone looking to improve their technique with some good, constructive feedback from the Instructor.

 

A+++

Which courses would have to be taken to be considered GFH alumni?

Any courses other then special events, i.e. Smokin Gun, etc.

 

Also the Wombat can attest they can sometimes be a bear to schedule. Between range availability and Instructor and student schedule. Just a heads up.

Agreed, scheduling can be a bit of a challenge at times, however well worth it. The added benefit now is that when I do the group training with GFH the instructors Chuck/Joe will be keeping an even closer eye on me for the specifics we covered on the 1:1 training. An added bonus (I think!)

 

Overall well worth it and my thanks (as usual) to GFH and the team.

So how does a "normal" guy qualify for a session / alumni status?

 

Anthony will need to confirm - however my guess would be taking something like Urban Pistol 1 & 2 or some of the Simunitions training. I would highly recommend Simunitions even for experienced shooters as it is an eye-opener in my view. You can see the training I've taken in my sig and I've posted feedback on most classes.

      Taught by Bob Keller and Don Deyo.
      The SHOOT AND SAVE course is designed to significantly increase the skill level of any marksman utilizing a semi-automatic carbine and pistol and teach you TCCC (tactical combat casualty care). The course will consist of approximately 1 hour of instruction on firearm safety, firearm operation, and the safe and correct way to handle and operate both weapon systems on and off the range. The initial instruction will be followed by 15 hours of gradually perplexing drills that involve a variety of shooting positions, distances, speed work, and TCCC. These drills will primarily originate from the standing position and are designed to improve both speed and accuracy. Upon completion of this course the student will have a thorough understanding of firearm safety, firearm operation, the ability to engage multiple targets with multiple shots, and the knowledge and skills required to save lives.
      Course Objective: The student will gain a high level of confidence in TCCC and the safe handling and operation of an AR-15 type rifle and pistol. which will in turn show substantial improvement in accuracy and speed of target engagement and the ability to treat casualties under stress.
      This is an open enrollment class.  For further info: https://store.gamutresolutions...th-d-dey-response/27
