Tactical Conference AAR
Tactical Conference Results
On April 24-25, 2010, Rangemaster conducted the annual Tactical Conference/Polite Society Match at the wonderful facilities of the United States Shooting Academy in Tulsa, OK. USSA is the largest and most modern firearms training facility in the country, and is the perfect venue for our event. One hundred and fifty attendees came from literally all over the US, from Washington state to Maryland, Minnesota to Florida, and all points between.
As usual, we had classroom, live-fire, and hands on training segments going on concurrently in several locations throughout the weekend. Attendees were able to sample training from a broad cross section of nationally recognized trainers, in a variety of subjects. In the classrooms, lectures were presented by Massad Ayoob, Skip Gochenour, Tom Givens, John Hearne, William Aprill, Glenn Meyer, Hany Mahmoud, and Martin Topper. Live-fire range training was conducted by Rob Pincus, Wayne Dobbs, Paul Gomez, Marty Hayes, and Will Andrews. There was hands on training by Southnarc, Mike Brown, and Steve Moses, plus airsoft scenarios in the shoot-house against live opponents, directed by Karl Rehn. Attendees were able to attend several classes of their choosing each day.
We also conducted a tactical handgun match, consisting of a 60 round set of Standards, followed by three scenario based stages, two of which involved shooting in/around a car. The scenarios involved reactive mannequin targets, that look surprisingly real and fall only when struck solidly in the vital zone. A third match segment involved a live fire exercise in the shoot-house, run as a side match. The top ten shooters in the tactical handgun match were:
Todd Louis Green 70.56
Mike Cyrwus 71.15
Wayne Dobbs 78.56
Karl Rehn 82.06
William Aprill 83.64
Hany Mahmoud 83.78
Randy Richardson 83.87
Massad Ayoob 86.40
Charles Cowden 87.80
William Arnett 89.93 .
The High Lawman for the match was Mike Cyrwus, and the High Lady was Joanie Webb.
More shooting was done in a side match run by Todd Louis Green (pistol-training.com). Todd ran shooters through his FAST drill, with all entry money going to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the leading research hospital in the world in the fight against childhood cancers. We raised $1,700 that was donated to St. Jude’s. The best time of the day was turned in by retired cop and trainer Wayne Dobbs of Texas, followed closely by Spencer Keepers and Massad Ayoob.
At the conclusion of the event, plaques were awarded to a number of high scoring shooters, and there was a prize drawing for everyone with several thousand dollars worth of goodies, including a rifle, free classes, and lots of range gear.
The Tactical Conference will be back at USSA in Tulsa for 2011. Details will be announced soon.
