Class Description:

Aim Fast, Hit Fast is intended to pick up where most marksmanship training ends. All shooting involves a balance between accuracy and speed. Time allows us to concentrate on proper sight alignment and a slow, deliberate trigger pull for maximum precision. Therefore, the faster we are forced to shoot, the less accurate we expect to be. Away from the practice range, a shooter does not get to choose how much time he will get to break a shot … shooting becomes reactive and all timeframes are determined by the situation rather than comfort or habit.



The goal of this class is twofold. First, we will come to understand the critical balance between accuracy and speed for each individual shooter. Second, we will improve each shooter’s ability to deliver accurate, rapid fire in shorter timeframes to maximize his effectiveness shooting a pistol under stress. Skills to be covered include marksmanship, presentation from the holster, reloads, multiple targets, and shooting on the move.



Dates: 9-10 August 2008

Cost: $265*

(* $100 discount for first two certified EMTs who sign-up)

Are there reasonably priced, and nice, accommodations nearby?

Is the range accessible my motorcycle?

Is cheap range ammo available nearby?

YG -- You're going to ride a motorcycle from OK to PA with the gear you need for a pistol class?



You do that and you can room with me as long as you don't snore and/or accept that I will kill you in your sleep if you keep me up all night.

I don't know; I'm just thinking.

Thinking that would be a great way to spend my week off.

But, 1100 miles is a pretty good ride...

It's certainly not my place to offer an opinion. If you want to disappoint your son by showing him you're way too big a wimp to deserve that bike, who am I to argue?





And KaliS ... I'm not even sure what you were trying to say but the class will be taught in English.

Yukon,

Good opportunity to make your first Iron Butt ride. I just did an 1135-mile day last month from VA to Arkansas, in 20 hours. I documented the ride and am now certified with the IBA. ("Certifiable", is what my wife says).



C'mon, what better way to join the ranks of the "world's toughest riders"?



- Bob

David -- That is awesome! Bravo!



If you can hit a 3x5 at 7yd on demand, but can't do the speed portion of the prereq, odds are you're fumbling something. The best advice I can give is to slow down ... this is often the best way to get faster. Once you've got the movement down and have built up the skill/confidence to break your shots quickly, you'll see that seven seconds is a very long time for that drill.
