I agree, 150%! We live in the Dallas area and travel about an hour away to Greenville to train. We are extremely happy with our instructor and the RO's - the experience is priceless. I truly can't wait to incorporate carbine and shotgun training as well.

I have not trained that way yet, but plan to.

I'm so wishing I could join a group, but the one I wanted to join is over an hour drive during peak traffic. :grumble
It was an amazing experience. It is our responsibility to ensure that if we should have to fire our weapon, we better not miss the threat. There is too much at stake. This thought drives me to continue my training... But, it's also fun. My instructor is an hour drive from me, but it's worth it.

Ladies... Are you training, shooting on the move?

Hello Ladies...

I am fairly new to the forum, well...not really because I joined right along with my May CHL Applicant peers and had a great time chatting, waiting and chatting. Nonetheless, I have returned because I want to ensure that I remain educated and interactive with my CHL peers.

With that in mind, I participated in Defensive Handgun 1 & 2 classes a couple weekends ago (16 hours total) and it was the best thing I think I've done since "thinking" I wanted to be a CHL holder. Thinking is in quotes specifically because, my thought of holding a CHL was primarily to ensure I was equipped with an adequate tool to protect me and my family should the need arise. However, thinking and being able to actually do are two different things.

The class consisted of a few hours of classroom curriculum on Day 1, then range time latter in the day. You thought you felt a little nervous when picking up a firearm for the first time... Well, try shooting it...on the move, while considering the other 15 ppl next to you PLUS the instructor and R.O's. As comfortable as I thought I was shooting my Sig P226 Enhanced Elite in the range - I was completely crushed in Defensive Handgun training. I mean, I can draw from a holster and shoot the gun...one the move, but that was after 4 hours of jaw clenching (you better NOT mess up) stress. And, de-cocking that darn Sig 100 times.

Day 2: A full day of the same, this time - with a Glock - because I am just not going to decock every again.

Anyway, I left there knowing that my training would never cease. I plan to train monthly with this same group...using the indoor range weekly (or as much as possible) to practice my fundamentals (stance/position, grip, sight alignment, sight picture, trigger control, breathe and follow-through)... And of course, with my new carbine... I will start with the above training all over again w/ Defensive Carbine 1 & 2.

So, I'm asking the ladies of this forum... Are you training or shooting on the move? What was your experience?
