Well, if I am serious about taking a training class, I want to prepare. It’ll be embarrassing enough when I am at the top of my game.
What does that mean? I need to ramp up dry fire practice at home. (NO AMMO! This is the living room, not the range…) Not just for trigger pull refinements, but finger strength by pulling a DA trigger a bajillion times real fast like. I need to draw from the holster with my primary training gun, and the backup gun if the regular one decides to break DURING the class. While drawing I need to work on making the movement smooth, safe, and proper. Fast would be good too.
I think I’ll take the Sig and the 1911 and primary/backup for training. Miltsparks holster for the Sig, a Galco paddle holster for the 1911. I have the Serpa retention holsters, but some trainers ban them for certain gun models in class. Some class members are forgetting Rule 3 is my guess and putting the finger on the trigger as well as the retention release button.
That‘s one of my flaws. That’s 2 different calibers. Most classes I am looking at say to bring at least 300 rounds. One says 1000. So I’d need to bring 2000 rounds with me to be truly prepared. I have the 300 of both, but not necessarily the 1000…
Ooo, magazines. I will bring ALL of them. That’s 9 for each gun. I may even buy a couple more. I will also preload them before I go.
What else? The class will say specifically what they require. Like a hat and knee pads and sunscreen and water. But what stuff beyond that? Tape for my fingertips and hands. Don’t want the distraction of a painful blister. More water. Maybe buy some shooting gloves and test them out at the range before class.
