At the Range

Well it was a bitter day on the range, we only had 3 students, one had a pretty good idea how to shoot, one had shot a gun, & one had a mortal fear of guns.
Luck would have it that Lady D came down & was able to get the girl on target, once she got her past the tears, the cold was causing the Buck Marks to freeze up, which added a bit of flustration.
It can be a challenge to get 2 full hours in when you have small classes of 2 or 3, & the weather is like it was, I still find 6-8 a good number to fill the time as comfortably as possible, plus that many can huddle together for warmth. "Shooters" won't mind the cold to get the rangetime in, but newbies start thinking about freezing toes or fingers, & it affects their ability to shoot well.

Today we have one student & lord I do hope she knows how to shoot.

Of course I wonder about the two guys that canceled today because it was too cold, if they would have the fortitude to defend themselves with a handgun, if they wussed out due to weather.

Well it's done

Well almost the classroom has a few touch up spots, & there is still some trim to put up, closet still looking for joint compound, but we did a shake down cruise this weekend with a fairly large new Instructor class, & it went pretty well.

Several LE's & a couple of EMT's along with a few shooting enthusiasts that were wanting to get certified

Lots of kudos on the training, & even more for the food Miz Debby served up, & many comments on the new training building

All in all a good weekend!

Of course Ty has 1000's of helpers

4 days to finish new classroom that includes the bathroom, office & storage closet.

But it's getting there we have the classroom ceiling nearly painted, the bathroom is painted,
some of the walls are primed.

Thursday & Friday will be crazy, the outlets, switches, fans water heater will be installed along with the bathroom fixtures, the countertops for the kitchette & coffee area.
Plus cleaning & moving in.

It may not be completely done by Saturday, but it should be real useable by then

Busy busy

Working on classroom, trying to get it far enough done that we can be using it by the 13th

It's getting there & I hope to be putting primer on the walls by the end of the week.

I don't know how I had time to work, it's been very busy for over two weeks now, I am putting off getting in there this morning, but once I post this I'll be working on it.

not much time to post, or read other blogs.
Every Class

We talk about Jeanie Assam, & everyone gets a copy of Wolves, Sheep & Sheepdogs, By LT Col Dave Grossman (ret), some get it like Lady Breda

But I think only about 5-10% take it with any serious thought
