Rec'd an update email tonight from Phil.

8 out of 12 spots filled, so there is still an opportunity to sign up, but I wouldn't wait too long! :smash:

I would really like to do this, but a good friend of mine is getting married that day at 5:30. To get there in time, I would have to leave somewhere between 4:30 and 5. Do you think that would be okay? Would it still be worth it to go? I've never been to anything like this before.
I carry a gun so that I can go home to my family, and if need be, help you go home to yours.

Lucas,

I think you would still get a lot out of it, but it's your money and only you can make that decision. I suggest you call Phil directly at 214-893-4116 and discuss it with him. In that way you will obtain the best possible information upon which to base your decision.
Good Luck amigo and let us know what you decide to do either way.

I am hoping this will become at least a quarterly thing, with only 12 spots available, and the number of people who have other commitments on the date set, if you miss this one, I'm sure there will be plenty of forum members available to fill another class. I plan to be there, but, I keep a very limited social calander anyway(no that's not a fancy way of saying I have no life) so as Bitter Clinger said contact the instructor, and see what his thoughts are, we may be such awesome shooters, that we won't require any instruction after lunch anyway. :fire :smilelol5:

YES! He will video us and just play the video for his next group, instead of teaching. "rlol"

Will that be a "what not to do" video? :biggrinjester:

I have a philosophical question:
Bring my EDC, or a full size?
EDC means I work with what I have every day, but would I get more out of the flexibility of a full size pistol?
I'm leaning toward my EDC, but what day you?

Bring both. You should have plenty opportunity to run them. I often bring multiple handguns to these classes.
I prefer training with a full size but I also like getting in some EDC practice.

That's what I do. Just don't unholster before letting Phil know. Given that we are all LTC's I can imagine a scenario where we all go downrange and make safe as a group.
