Got info on an upcoming school? Post your times, dates, locations, subject matter and instructors here instead of in separate threads. This way your information won't get lost in the daily thread shuffle.

Note: Old posts in this thread have been deleted to keep room for newer information. I did my best to only toss the classes that have already gone, not anything still upcoming. If you posted something that should still be here because the class is still in the future, please send a PM to me, aka pax. Thanks!

Deep River Customs, a maker of quality 1911 pistols, is proud to sponsor Bob Marvel, who will be teaching custom 1911 courses in Asheboro, NC, beginning in April 2015.

Bob Marvel is nationally and internationally acclaimed for his craftsmanship in building exceptionally reliable and accurate 1911 pistols. In the past thirty years he has built national championship and world championship winning pistols, as well as pistols for the military, law enforcement, and for civilian use. Bob is well known for a series of .22/1911 conversion designs, 1911 design improvements, and products for the 1911, as well as being a consultant in the firearms industry.

This will be a thorough, comprehensive 10 day course to teach the participants how to build a custom 1911 pistol using specific knowledge of each part. The requirement for the 10 day schedule is due to the amount of information, knowledge, and custom pistol building skills that are to be passed on to the students. Simply put, five days is not enough time.

The classes will involve supervised “hands-on” training, lectures, class discussion, trouble shooting, range time and reviews. At the end of the course, each student will walk away with a custom built 1911 pistol, knowledge of how the pistol works, and how to build and repair 1911 pistols from the training acquired in class.

Brief course overview:
Introduction and basic gunsmith hand tool use
Slide to frame fit including breech prep, extractor, firing pin stop, feeding relief
Barrel preparation and barrel/bushing fit
Action work – trigger, hammer, sear, disconnector
Frame work – grip safety, thumb safety, mainspring housing, ejector, plunger tube, magazine tuning
Sights
Range – test fire along with malfunction and troubleshooting instruction

Detailed information can be found on the Deep River Customs website: www.deeprivercustoms.com

MESSAGE FROM BOB MARVEL:

“I appreciate the tremendous support and feedback you have given for my 1911 classes to be taught beginning in April of 2015. As a result of your feedback, I have decided to modify the time frames of my classes by decreasing the course length from 10 days to 7 days. Hopefully, by decreasing the class length, participants will encounter fewer conflicts with family responsibilities and work schedules.

Rest assured that I will maintain the same rigors and level of instruction of the original class schedule in the 7 day course. I will be able to cover the same material and provide the same quality of instruction by decreasing the maximum class size from 14 to 7 participants. The minimum class size will be 6 students. The cost of the course will remain the same as the quality of instruction and end products will not be affected.

Thank you again for your feedback and your support for my 1911 classes.”
Bob Marvel

REVISED CLASS SCHEDULE FOR 2015 Bob Marvel 1911 CLASSES:

April 12th though April 18th
September 13th though September 19th

Rangemaster Firearms Instructor Courses, Texas and Iowa

We’ll be conducting our signature Three Day Firearms Instructor Development Course in the Austin/Bastrop, Texas area and in Waterloo, Iowa, this Summer. This course is suitable for those who wish to begin teaching defensive pistol skills to others, for those who are already teaching and wish to improve and polish their skills, or for any shooter who wants to master the use of the handgun. The very best way to master any subject is to teach it.

Training is conducted over three full days, about evenly split between classroom time and range time. Each student will fire about 1,000 rounds of ammunition. Each receives a 200+ page training manual, which is a valuable reference resource.

July 17-19, 2015, Waterloo, Iowa
See https://www.eventbrite.com/e/firearms-instructor-development-course-waterloo-ia-tickets-13501991821 for details and to register.

Combative Pistol Course, Denver, CO, area, July 11-12, 2015

On July 11-12, Tom and Lynn Givens will be teaching a two day Combative Pistol Course in Ramah, Colorado, near Denver. This is one of our rare appearances in the Rocky Mountain states.

This is an intensive weekend course that covers all of the essential skills involved in fighting with a handgun. There is an all day session Saturday and Sunday, 9:00am to 6:00pm each day. Topics covered in this course will include:
• Rapid presentation from concealed carry
• Effective gun handling techniques, designed to work under stress
• Rapid reloading techniques
• High speed accuracy at close ranges
• Precision shooting at mid-ranges
• Shooting effectively with one hand, with either hand
• Fixing malfunctions rapidly and reliably
• Proper defensive mindset, personal tactics, and more.

Expect to fire about 800-1000 rounds of ammunition. This course is designed expressly for the armed citizen who carries a concealed handgun, or the plain clothes or off duty police officer.

You will need a good handgun, holster, belt, and magazine pouch, at least three magazines, a ball cap and concealment garment (vest, jacket, windbreaker, etc), eye and ear protection, and rain gear (we train rain or shine). A cooler with soft drinks and snacks is a very good idea.

You will need a quality handgun and gear. It is a good idea to bring a second gun just like your primary, in case something breaks on your primary gun. Please bring good quality ammunition. You will shoot better, your gun will function better, and you will learn faster. Leather or kydex holsters are fine—PLEASE NO flimsy nylon or cloth holsters. For more info, please email rangemaster.tom@gmail.com.

Good afternoon all;
I've just registered / signed up for a Concealed Carry Permit course. It's Saturday 10:00 to 1:00. Looking forward to the experience. The course is being given by Florida Gun Supply at their store in Inverness, FL.
Should anyone have a comment, pro or con, I'd appreciate all input. I'm a little new at this game and need what help I can get. Hope I don't sound lame, but I guess most new kids do.

Tactical Performance Center is excited to announce a new series of Multigun Bootcamps with some of the most talented shooters on the planet as instructors. The first camp will feature 3 Gun Nation Pro Shooters Craig Outzen, Brian Nelson and Andy Peterson, with possible assistance from other pro shooters.

This will be a three day intensive course for the intermediate to advanced 3 gun shooter. This is not a class for beginners! There are plenty of options on the market for training on how to safely use a gun, basics of shooting, etc. This class is designed to elevate your 3 gun game for major match placement. We expect students to have solid fundamentals in stance, grip, sight alignment consistent with a B class or above shooter. This class will be the best 3 gun specific training available, we won’t be satisfied unless you are.

Class will be hosted at the TPC home range in St. George UT. This facility offers year -round beautiful weather and an amazing range. With multiple major matches hosted here yearly, you can always expect top notch stage design. Recent events have included Hard as Hell, USPSA Nationals, 3 Gun Nation Western Regional, Berry’s Steel Championship and more.

The first class is scheduled for August 27-29, 2015. This is a Thursday – Saturday schedule, with FN-FNH right around the corner we wanted to get out a little earlier to allow time for travel.

Greatness lies within you, let’s find it!
We believe anybody can be a great shooter! And we love to train with people who aspire to greatness.

But it is a journey… and it requires training smart and working hard. Our bootcamps get you started.

The TPC Handgun Boot Camp builds a solid foundation of core technique; specifically adapted to you, your shooting goals, and the equipment you choose to use. along with mental, physical and emotional discipline.

Using the best training methodology in the world for teaching reactive shooting, you will put those principles into practice with shooting exercises, drills and training challenges. Mindset, discipline, perseverance, technique and gear will be rigorously tested.

Each day, we will encourage you to “up your performance” and increase your personal bests. We will measure your overall performance through challenge exercises and competitions. You will be competing with your fellow students as part of the exercises. These are fun, add stress, and let you know where you really stand.

Expect to feel challenged, expect to be tired, and expect to feel exhilarated as you reach a new personal best of shooting performance under pressure.


What we will Cover
Reactive shooting vs. target shooting
The Triangle of Control: grip, stance, and trigger manipulation
Vision, the Focal Continuum, and how to use it properly
The Reactive Shooting Cycle – Understand your shooting and how to improve your consistency and accuracy.
Ready positions and target acquisition – Acquiring the first good hit, fast!
