OpSpec Training is following-up our Practical Fundamentals class on Nov. 10 & 11 with our one-day Advanced Pistol Marksmanship program.

We have confirmed we have exclusive use of Bay 3 (the large bay) at Richmond Rod & Gun Club for the three days we will be on-site.

This is an advanced-level course. 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 or competed in USPSA, IDPA or 3-Gun matches you also meet the pre-requisites for this class. To get the most benefit from this class, you should have taken OpSpec Training’s Practical Fundamentals class within the last two to three years.

Advanced Pistol Marksmanship
The one-day Advanced Pistol Marksmanship course is for a shooter who wants to become faster and more accurate for defensive or competitive shooting. This course places a heavy emphasis on process oriented technical marksmanship to solve various marksmanship challenges. The goal of this course is to take the shooter through a series of logically organized problems, and equip the shooter with the ability to solve them. This has been described as a very mentally challenging course that pays a dividend in overall technical skills.

More details online right here, and you should READ this page!

When: Nov. 12, 2016, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Class size: Limited to 24 students, with a minimum of 12.

Where to Stay
If you are looking for a hotel in the area, we are suggesting you look for properties near the following communities: El Cerrito, Albany or Berkeley (south of Richmond), or El Sobrante, Pinole, or Hercules to the north. Berkeley will have the best selection for hotels as well as food.

Food at Lunch Break
To ensure you get the most "bang for your buck" we try to keep lunch breaks to one hour. If you have the ability to bring your lunch, you can do that. If you need to run out and get a quick meal, there are options in the area. Fast food restaurants (McDonald's, Subway, Jack In The Box, Little Caesar's) are located near Contra Costa College about 12 minutes (3 miles) to the southeast.

We have a couple of people registered for this class so far. The Practical Fundamentals class is immediately before this date, and we suggest that program as a pre-requisite.

Three days of training. Get some!

Don't forget Practical Fundamentals the two days prior. This is a packaged program.

I just started using a shot timer. Because of Jerry and Bruce's training, I can draw and fire one accurate round in .92 to 1.25 seconds, every time.

Not challenging you; I'm curious regarding what others use as goal / success criteria. 0.9s draw is very fast to me. But when you say accurate, what level of precision (how close to the X) and accuracy (group size) are you accepting at what target distance?

I'm always curious what other do so as to evolve my own goals.

I'd say starting at 7 yards within an A zone or down zero of target. For an IDPA target within the eight inch circle(down zero) at 7 yards under a second is awesome. I don't know if I could consistently do that, it would be challenging. I don't think grouping at that speed would be the goal, however I know some are quite capable of getting very good groups. The goal shouldn't be how tight of a group you can get, rather focus on the draw stroke and when you acquire a good sight picture and press with good follow through. Group size will naturally follow.

As I have not been practicing much over the last 6 months mostly I am shooting minute of bad guy, or 8" circle, from 7 yards. If I concentrate under 1.25 seconds is fairly easy, but once I start to think about other matters, time goes up to 1.5 seconds, or more. I am using a drop holster, and that is definitely much faster than a hip level holster. About 10% of my times are under a second, and the rest between 1.0 and 1.25 seconds.

After taking a 2-3 day class my accuracy is amazing. However that accuracy degrades significantly over a few months. Lately I have been dry firing 15 minutes or so a few mornings a week, as recommended by Jerry Jones. Hopefully but the November class my accuracy will be good again.

I think anyone who takes the Operation Specific Training classes, and then uses a shot timer, can draw and fire in 1.25 seconds.

I learned that there are more persons signed up for the two day Practical Fundamentals class than the one day Advanced Pistol Operator. My experience tells me that anyone who completes the PF class is ready for the APO class.

When I first took the PF class, it was a three day class. After two days I was a much better shooter. However after the third day I was a GREAT pistol shooter. I was shooting 1" groups at multiple targets as fast as I could pull the trigger. This was at 7 yards. It was fully amazing how my pistol skills improved. This accuracy does degrade without practice, but the core fundamentals are embedded in my brain.

So if you are debating about the third day, I recommend you sign up for Saturday as well. You will definitely be ready.

Weather report is excellent. Partly cloudy and no rain for the duration of the class.
