    Default Mapelton, Oregon: Nov 2-3 - Advanced Gunfighting

    Mapelton, Oregon: Nov 2-3 - Advanced Gunfighting

    Instructors: Ted Demosthenes & Brent Yamamoto

    Sign up here: CRG 3: Advanced Gunfighting

    Class Description:
    This course is pure shooting at all ranges. We will spend the morning of the first day polishing up our pistol shooting fundamentals and then spend the remainder of the weekend taking our skills to higher levels. This is a physically demanding course that builds upon what you have already trained in other pistol classes. Course material includes methods for increasing speed and accuracy.
    In this class, we will do some long range shooting . . . like 75 yards and 100 yards! We will teach you to hit at all possible distances. We will also point shoot from belly to belly distance, while ignoring the use of sights both station stationary, on the move and on the run. We will study the various Threat-Focused Point Shooting systems (Point Shooting) as well as Sight-Focused Shooting Systems and their seamless integration and applications in a total Close Range Gunfighting program. Included in this class will be the concepts and employment of personal defensive weapons (PDWs) and pistol optics systems. We will shoot from field expedient positions (including one handed, behind cover, etc.). We'll examine special problems such as confined area shooting, shooting in crowded environments and other difficult problems. All attendees should have a high level of skill and a reflexive understanding of safety measures.

    There is little or no lecturing and the majority of the time is trigger time. Come join us in this exciting and cutting edge training event!

    The last time Ted and I taught in this venue was a 2014 rifle class. How time flies!

    This is an awesome venue, and perfect for CRG 3.

    Some pics from the rife class to give you an idea of the venue:

    I've been working with the issue M&P at 100. I'll bring that and something more accurate at distance.

    Always entertaining, mildly offensive
    IANative: Indeed, when you grab Brent (or he grabs you), it feels like liquid unobtanium wrapped in rawhide... whereas Greg is just solid muscle wrapped in hate, seasoned w/ snuff and a little lead.

    This is coming up quick. If you're in the Northwest, this is a great venue and will give you the ability to take long pistol shots.

    One of the challenges in Washington is finding a decent range to go even out to 100 yards. The Mapleton range is one of my favorite places to shoot and it's a great opportunity to stretch your skills. Ted and I don't get down there much so take advantage of this if you can.

    So it turns out we had to cancel this one. Some of the students have injuries making class untenable, and one of the instructors is down as well!

    we are rescheduling this one to the spring time. Stay tuned.

    Sorry to hear that. Who's down?

    Maybe I can play as a lefty in the spring.
