what a GREAT DAY at the texaschl forum day at PSC!
I had an unbeleivable time and met several very nice people.
Firstly I must give a hearty thank you to Mr. Cotton and all who helped to put this wonderful event together as I'm sure it is/was time consuming and nerve rackingly stressful at times.
From the moment I signed in with Marc Gentine to the walk to the shooting bay's everyone I encountered was cordial and friendly.
I saw Mr. Cotton only once and he was busy so I didn't bother him with any of my small talk, but it would have been good just to meet him non-the less.
As I walked to the bay's I encountered surprise_i'm armed. Sia came a long way to learn so hopefully he had a great time. Good to talk with him.
I also met Jason Hall who turned out to be my instructor for 'Malf drills' and he was awesome, very direct and straight forward with his approach to the subject matter, very good mini to take. As Jason stated practice these drills at home with dummy rounds and get off the X!
I later met and talked with Janne Karhunen? (Fosforos?) and he and I had a good conversation about the Mosin Nagant M39 and other Finn/Russian firearms.
Sorry I didn't meet the misses Janne.
Tim Fisher (glockenhammer) was the Instructor for the 'shooting on the move' mini and he was a blast to learn from, knowledgeable and presented more than one option to suit any situation, great to learn from him also. I will take this mini again if offered in April!! Hope Tim instructs again also. Thanx Tim.
J P Guidry was the instructor for the 'speed reload' mini and that was super fun!
This guy has the energy and stamina of a 7 year old! My goodness he was like the energizer bunny!
J P taught presented some well thought out subject matter and supplied many tips and tricks he's learned that obviously work since he's proof positive.
would definitely like to train/learn with him again.
I also met Gregg Garrett and would love to take his 'shotgun' clinic next forum day!
All in all a great day and I plan on being here for April 24th 2010 and will get in early to take more classes!
Thanks to all for their hard work on putting the event together.
I shot the stars also and wasted alot of ammo...more misses than hits,many more misses than hits actually
I had a good day at the plates though...
