    Default AAR: Advanced Kalashnikov Gunfighting, Dayton ,TN 10/10 - 10/11

    Red October was in full swing again in Dayton, Tennessee, as Instructor Randy Harris presented all things "Commie Gun" in the shape of Advanced Kalashikov Gunfighting! And a good time was had by all!!

    Day 1:

    As weather was a looming concern, our classroom was curt and to the point. Firearms Safety was #1 topic, as always. As this wasn't a "Which end is the Firey, Dangerous One?" type of class, we didn't dally long on the rudiments. Randy outlined the Caveman Eotech, reload types, the joys of mag retention, and whether or not to reload or transition. Topics that were not new to the scant handful who took the Intermediate Kalashnikov Gunfighting last October. We retired to the Range to beat the rain, but that only lasted about an hour. The heavens opened up steadily the rest of the day!

    We revisited getting off the X with focus given to forward and rearward obliques. Full and partial transfers were covered Shooting while on the move was old home week to us, but was great! We were treated to SI's version of downed officer drills with single handed reloading and manipulation of the venerable Russian rifle. This was Muy, Muy, Dificil! To spice things up mean, mean, Randy had us working this in the Supine rain position. It was glorious! We touched on getting hits at distance with elevated heart rates.

    Day 2:

    Just to be different, the rain never really stopped from the night before, but the adage reads: If it ain't Rainin', we ain't Trainin"!! We started weapon retention and disarms and moved on to Peels from lines and columns. Repeat after me, class:

    "Let's do it again dry"...

    Lemme tell ya, our dry work was the only dry thing!

    Randy had us work out the kinks while increasing task loading with empty weapons. We looked at center peels and wedge peels while advancing. We worked at bumping and bounding "Moving, Move, and set" ting all the while. Some of the lesser experienced folks REALLY took to this and looked like they'd been doing this for years. Bravo! We ended the day with team shooting exercises from different positions and distances.

    I was really looking forward to this class, and it certainly didn't disappoint! It is the caliber of class I've come to expect from Randy and he was on point! Professional and pertinent! It was a great joy for me to train hard with squared away individuals and run hard at it! It was a breath of fresh air....Really wet fresh air.

    Oh, and true to form, after when we were loading up to leave, the Sun came out!

    Sounds great!

    That's one of the things I really appreciate about an SI course. There's an agenda, a great deal of attention to the material and no illusion that completing the course alone makes you a killer. What you bring out of an SI course is homework and a path to improvement.

    What really kills me in other venues are the 20 minute breaks where everyone handles and inspects each other's weapons and pooped instructors take that extra long lunch break so they can run into town to pick up Arbeys.
