    Thanks Jpm, definitely will. My plan was to blog at the conclusion of each day. Trip is booked, Nov 8-11. Looking forward to it.

    it helps a bit. But not as much as having them watch you toss up a pair of soda cans with the hand that "clears' your concealing garment, draw from ccw and hit both cans in the air. :-) THAT establishes who is what, quick and easy. Anyone can understand what that means in the way of speed and accuracy.

    Hey,that's a pretty cool trick but do you know anyone that can actually do it.

    I can do it, most of the time, from IWB under a t shirt, and you can learn, too, mostly using Airsoft. But there is a trick that lets you simply 'cheat", (just like you should ALWAYS do if you are attacked). :-) What you do is use a front pants pocket rig, in slacks, and start with hand on gun, in the pocket. That saves you about 1/2 second and eliminates the risk of not clearing the outer garment adequately, or snagging on the shirttail, or getting a bad grip on the gun. You can learn to do a LOT in that 1/2 second. :-)

    I've shown many people that I can toss up a soda can, draw from under my shirt with the throwing hand, cycle the slide on a 1911, and still hit the can in midair. It's actually harder to throw both cans in a suitable way than it is to make the draw and get the hits. They have to go up and fall 'just so" . hitting ONE can with a ccw draw is no big deal.

    Ok when you can do this while the can is shooting back at you let me know.

    You need a TV show, way too much talent not to share with the world. You are way too good to be on Impossible Shot.

    If you can find that can, let me know! Be great backup and I could carry it in my purse. ;)

    I think that going to classes does add credibility, but that is only the first step. The biggest issue I find when trying to recruit instructors to teach for us is a lack of ability to effectively teach, communicate and relate to the student that they are working with. After years of training and experience it is easy to forget how difficult it is for our students to do some of the things we are showing them. It is even worse if they have to unlearn a bad method first.

    Think back to learning to ride a bike or tie you shoes. I know we learn this at an early age, but when you first try it seems impossible. Once you really learn, it is easy. After tens of thousands of repetitions it is hard to understand how anyone cannot do these things.

    Know how to ride a bike and being able to teach someone to ride a bike are two very different things. It is the same with shooting.

    So take the classes, but look at what teachable moments they offer, not just what material is being presented. As instructors we need to constantly look for ways to deliver our message to our students more effectively.
