Am on the way home from Tom Givens' RangeMaster Tactical Conference, this year in Tulsa at the U.S.Shooting Academy.
As usual, had a wonderful time, catching up with Tom, John Farman, Mas Ayoob, Paul Gomez, Karl Rein, and as whole bunch of other people, including my old high school buddy Bill Baker, who now instructs at RangeMaster.
You'll see a ton of this stuff on DRTV, along with a whole slew of gun tests.
As usual, Tom and the RM guys set up some cool and challenging shooting stages - a house exercise with lots of terrorist and lots of innocent bystanders, the classic Dozier Drill (which I'd shot with an S.A.revolver at GUNSITE a couple of weeks ago), a standards, a stage were you carted around a darn heavy "baby," and a back-up gun stage. I shot the main stages with a Para LTC 9mm I had in Tulsa with me and borrowed a Kahr .380 for the BUG stage. The highlight of the BUG stage was 2 shots standing at 15 yards on a target about 3/4 covered by a hostage, then dropping to prone to engage a clay pigeon at 15 yard through a hole in a steel plate. The plate messes with your head! I shot 2 "A's" on the paper, then drilled the clay pigeon on the second shot...as Walt Rauch told me a month or so ago, the little Kahr is a SHOOTER!
