Training Day

Took out a long time friend shooting handguns for the first time.  They have previously only shot a shotgun, I believe once before. I brought out an array of handguns ranging from the Glock 21, Glock 17, Springfield XDsc 9mm and Smith and Wesson Bodyguard 380.  I also brought out our newest toy the Glock 17 MOS with Trijicon RMR sight. Since this was his first time with handguns it gave me a great opportunity to lay down a great foundation.  We started with the basic operations of the handgun then went into the seven fundamentals of shooting.  I emphasised a few points and started off running some drills. After about 45 minutes he was able to put most rounds were he wanted so I changed it up a bit and showed him some magazine exchanges, again, being the first time doing this and being able understand made for a quick teach and he was already performing speed and tactical reloads.  By the end of our session I ran him through a county qualification.  He had a couple missing rounds but shot pretty well.  Nearly well enough to pass the course.  Mind you, after only a hour and a half of training!  Good job on the student's commitment!
