2012 Training Courses and NEW Website

Dear Friends and Fellow Firearm Enthusiasts

I have created a very simple website to announce On Target Training Firearm classes, which will help us share what we are doing and expedite registration.

Here is a preview for 2012:

 March 31st – Introduction to Handguns

A course which will include the firearms and ammunition. This is for people who have never fired before, or for people who want to try a variety of handguns and calibers, and get more comfortable. It is ideal for spouses and youth who want to learn in a comfortable no-stress environment.

April 21 – Defensive Pistol Skills

This one-day seminar will cover the following skills sets vital for self-defense, concealed carry, and action pistol shooting events (IDPA or USPSA): rapid drawing from a holster and target acquisition, quick placement of multiple hits on a target, rapid placement of hits on multiple targets, use of cover – moving to cover and firing from cover, use of movement – while drawing, moving to cover, and while firing, and techniques for smooth and rapid reloads. We will end the course with shooting mini-scenarios applicable to self-defense situations or an action pistol match, in which all of the skills practiced during the day will be utilized.

June 2 – Practical Carbine

This course is designed for rifle students interested in mastering accuracy and speed on both paper and reactive steel targerts using a variety of positions and movement.

Drills range from focusing on traditional rifle positions and accuracy to firing on the move, firing on steel from distance behind cover, adverse firing positions, decision making and reactive drills.

Students at all skill levels benefit from taking this course to improve their accuracy and speed. The day will end with challenging field courses designed to use the skills practiced during the day, and will make use of the rolling wooded terrain on this property.

Combat to Clays: A Woman’s Journey

From: Heide Kaser

When I left the FBI Academy after sixteen weeks of training in 1986, I was covered in

the most beautiful shades of purple, green, and yellow from my face to my collarbone, and down my bicep. The shotgun was too long, and my long neck and high cheekbones made it impossible to mount the gun properly to my shoulder while maintaining a proper sight picture (which is critical to defensive shotgun shooting). I lifted my face off the gun while shooting creating a horrible flinch, and all of the bad habits that ensue when shooting an ill-fitted gun followed suit. I was convinced that no one had ever hated a shotgun like I did in my bruised and frustrated condition.

Despite all odds, I was determined to accomplish two things:  learn to shoot properly

without pain, and share with others (especially women), the training and tricks I had learned over time. Thirteen years later, armed with the knowledge that comes from first-hand experience and training, I was hired by the NRA’s Law Enforcement Activities Division. I had the opportunity to share what I had learned by training police officers and members of the military to become Law Enforcement Firearm Instructors in handgun, rifle, and yes, shotgun.

I set my sights on expanding my shotgun knowledge into other realms.I sought out top combat and competitive instructors, and made great progress after spending a week at Tac Pro Shooting Center in Texas with Bill Davidson, and practicing with the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) Grand Master Greg Wodack (who manages the NRA Range in Fairfax, VA).
