We had a great time, great turn-out, and great weather for our program in January 2018 at the Volusia County Gun & Hunt Club near Daytona Beach, so we’re heading back in January 2019! By popular demand, we’re bringing back our Practical Fundamentals class back to central Florida. The club is located just outside DeLand, about one hour north of Orlando International Airport and 14 miles (less than 20 minutes) west of the Daytona International Speedway and the International Airport.
For all the details about this specific Practical Fundamentals program, check out this page.
If you have experience working from a holster, and have good gun-handling skills, you meet the pre-requisites for this class. If you've taken OpSpec Training's Intro to Practical Fundamentals, Practical Fundamentals, competed in USPSA, IDPA or 3-Gun matches or have law enforcement or military training you also meet the pre-requisites for this class.
Using a building-block approach, Practical Fundamentals encourages students to focus on the process of running the gun, tamping down the emotional desire to see results on the target. By using a variety of dry fire and live fire exercises, students are brought through the fundamentals of marksmanship with a focus on trigger control to help the shooter make fast hits on small targets, on demand.
Instructors*: Jerry Jones & HR Hawkins
When: Jan. 18 & 19, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day
Class size: Limited to 24 students, with a minimum of 12 students.
Tuition: $450, with a $225 deposit
Range Fees: $40.
Local Host: Mike Staley

Where to Stay
As you can imagine, there are an unending selection of accommodation choices in the area as the club is close to the Daytona Beach area. There are also many options just west of the range in DeLand about less than 25 minutes away. (The DeLand options may be less expensive than Daytona Beach in January.)
Suggested hotels in the Deland, Florida area include the Comfort Inn DeLand or Hampton Inn & Suites Deland, both near the intersection of International Speedway Blvd. and N. Woodland Blvd in DeLand. (Links take you to Trip Advisor reviews.)
Food at Lunch Break
To ensure you get the most "bang for your buck" we keep lunch breaks to one hour. If you have the ability to bring your lunch, you may do so. If you need to run out and get a quick meal, there is a Subway located about 10 minutes east of the range at the southwest corner of the intersection of State Route 44 and State Route 415. There is a McDonald's located about 15 minutes east on State Route 44 just prior to I-95.This message has been edited. Last edited by: steve495,
Bump for Florida in January!
Last year's crowd was great. Great location too.
Bump! If you're enrolled and know any other shooters who may be interested, now would be the time to get them involved and registered!
If you're thinking about this class, we might be able to get you in. The class is this weekend!
