OpSpec Training has not been to Florida in at least two years, and we're thrilled to announce we will be in Florida for a Practical Fundamentals class at the Volusia County Gun & Hunt Club near Daytona Beach, Florida. The club is located about 14 miles (less than 20 minutes) from the Daytona International Speedway and the International Airport.

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.

Practical Fundamentals
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

When: Jan. 19 & 20, 2018, exact start time TBD

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

Tuition: $450, with a $225 deposit

Range Fees: $20 per day.

Local Host: Mike Staley

Ammunition: Round count for Practical Fundamentals will be approximately 750 - 850 rounds

Important Links and Information

* Instructors listed for specific programs have committed to teach the class on those dates. Although we do not anticipate changes, travel delays, family emergencies or illness may result in instructor substitutions.

Where:
Volusia County Gun & Hunt Club
4845 E. SR 44
New Smyrna Beach, FL 3216
Map

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.) We'll be looking at options and will provide a suggested hotel in the near future.

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.

Evil exists. You can not negotiate with, bribe or placate evil. You're not going to be able to have it sit down with Dr. Phil for an anger management session either.

I've shot at that range a number of times, the Deland Hampton Inn is pretty new and where I stayed in the past. And there is a Publix on the way to the range so you can grab a sandwich for lunch.

You got a range close and want to host it? I'm down with it. Ranges in WNC are hard to come by. At least ones that make me feel safe. There are a couple that you are shooting into a hillside with lots of trees and stuff and there "shouldn't be" anyone back there.

I want to do WNC in '18 anyways. Its been three or four years since I've done a class there.

I really wish I did...my life is in a cycle right now that is 100% work or kids, with zero hobby/free time. 60 hours of OT in July...just had 3 requests for full days to train our animal control people CPR in September, on top of patrol work and teaching the academy recruits for a week. All that to say...I haven't even been to a range that wasn't the PD's for a solid 4 months.

But if you find a spot in NC for 2018 (unless its up around that fancy place in the NE corner), I'll be there!

The training date & location sound excellent. Never been to the hosting club, but I have taken this training class in prior years. Now to see if my 2018 budget is up for it.
