COURSE REVIEW

28 Mar 2014 (Posted review in the 30 March thread)
  • James recommended another way to place my support hand; it made a noticeable improvement on my shot placement.
  • James’s drills attempted to replicate some stresses you may encounter and pump up your adrenaline as well. You really notice the effects of breathing control on your shot placement.

30 Mar 2014
  • As someone who only recently started carrying a gun for a living, the lessons I learned on that course may save my life someday. The techniques, the repetitions and the focus on fundamentals really brings home the realities of firefights and what you need to survive.
