    I hope that the current unavailability of ammo makes this class appealing to consumers. I have long advocated for this as the preferred method of training. It is an ideal educational environment. Sadly, most people are enticed by the prospect of making loud noises and turning loaded ammo into spent brass. But this is a much better way.

    Often times, those are simply gun junkies and not serious firearms owners - as we all know here. They buy all the ammo supplies and then burn them up while shooting at standard, non-moving targets, and then telling their friends that they are now commandos. They usually tend to give legitimate gun owners a bad name.

    As to dry-firing...it's importance to serious training is sorely underrated.

    Count me in. If that's okay.

    My right side needs serious work as flexibility returns. Not technically a beginner, but certainly a reset.

    Happy to have you as always. This one will be focused on beginners of course (and I do expect we'll have some raw beginners in this one), but I try to make things relevant to anyone that shows up. And we can modify some stuff to challenge you more as well.

    I’m going to shoot for being there and also trying round up a couple new recruits to the gun world. A couple neighbors have armed up and taken some classes at a local range and seem to willing to learn more. Also have an old school friend up here that has done the same and I have covered some of of the basics to help out, but this class would be a gold mine to her.
    The government selectively enforces laws, so I selectively follow them.

    New learners are perfect candidates for classes like these. They don't have any - or as much - bad habits to have to get past and they are truly eager to learn their newfound art. Good on you for getting them there.

    Kinda hoping you'd say that.
