Focus on Front Sight...Break Icicle off Nose!


I just had to post this picture from Bruce Gray's class at the SIGARMS Academy (courtesy of Paul Erhardt @ SIG)! After they finished this drill, I hear they went out hunting penguins...

Boy, I'm glad I missed this one!

Looks like the Clear Creek range..but doesn't show the fourty knot wind coming down the canyon.

I've heard of the IPSC "Michigan start position". Your hands are tucked into the opposite side armpits :-)

Those guys in New Hamster are TOUGH! For Brucie's next class, the students are going to have to first scale an ice wall, then summit Mt. Washington, followed by 2 shots, a tactical reload, then 2 more shots!

There's something about the shared experience through great adversity that brings men together. Actually, taking turns huddling naked with each other in the warming tent wasn't so bad. Did you know that the muzzle blast clears the snow long enough for a flash image of the target during white-out conditions? As long as you're closer than 3 feet, anyway.

Did he also tell you about the new 220 single action and the 240? 245 slide and 220 frame. Maybe some new good things from Sig? Regards

Looks like the class I taught this weekend. I told my students, "Adversity builds character." That and, "This is Michigan. Don't you think you might have to shoot in the snow sometime?"

It sure was cold! Guess who took that picture. :D

I shot an IPSC stage in -15C (5F) temperature several years ago. One problem is that a hit anywhere on the paper targets would blow off a cloud of patches-they stick poorly at temperatures that low.

The problem with that is what? You just score everyone with two A's and move on. Anyone willing to shoot in that temp (I've done it) deserves two A's just for being there.
