Today is a catch up day. I'm sure everyone read the WODs and thought about doing them, thought it would be good practice, maybe did 5 or 6 repetitions as you got ready for work, did a lot of mental reps, but some of you may be a little bit lacking in actual reps, so here is your chance to get a little bit closer to caught up. Working out for the gun show is a lot like working out for "The Gun Show". Once you get a little bit behind, it is very easy to get a whole lot behind.…Continue

Read WOD 11/10/11. 11/14/11 WOD starts the same as 11/10, make sure your pistol is unloaded, press check, press check again, and if you dry fire during this exercise, please do so into body armor hanging on a chair, or similar arrangement. Draw pistol, establish grip in holster, as you clear the holster, drop into a one knee, kneeling position, scan/assess appropriately before standing up, reholster. Repeat 20X.

11/12/11 WOD is the same as 11/10/11, except, you have to do it using only your support hand. If you cannot reach the holster, time to make some lifestyle changes. If you can almost reach it, practice pulling your belt around a little bit, get the holster in front of your hip a little if you can, that should help.

I ordered my Valkyrie today, I'm really looking forward to getting it since it has gotten downright cold out the last couple of days. Here a few quick pics I snapped of the Valkyrie LT. Very low-key appearance, flattering cut. I also threw on the TAD pants too, Force 10s, very practical for range time. The cargo pockets are big and can carry a lot of stuff. I love the…Continue

I had an extremely interesting conversation with Daina during lunch at the free ballistic shield class by Diamondback Tactical this past spring. The thing that was so interesting about it was we didn't just talk about chocolate and ice cream, what most of my food conversations entail, but it was about how food works, and it started to make sense. It was shortly after that, my mom had stopped eating wheat gluten because of digestive issues. Not only did her gut feel better, but her…Continue
Greetings everyone, I hope you are all enjoying this incredible fall weather we're having. I'm going to start putting together some dates for fall and winter pistol and rifle classes for the Law Enforcement members of the group, at my range in Will County, and I need to know what you want to do. I don't want to put on a class for A, if you guys want to learn B, so let me know what you need. Also, would you prefer shorter 4 hour classes or stick to the standard 8 hour? If you prefer a 4…Continue

The class descriptions I had written for the pistol and rifle classes coming up did not specify that they are for LE only, not by my doing, but as are the rules for the ranges we'll be using. I apologize for the oversight and will make appropriate refunds if applicable.
Now that we have non-LE members, please take a minute to send me an email got.1911sATgmail.com and let me know what kind of training/instruction you would like and on which weapon systems. If you guys are…Continue

In Commerce Township, Michigan there is an excellent place called the Multi-Lakes Conservation Association. They have been hosting the competition portion of the National Patrol Rifle Championship, which I have attended the last two years. The competition and conference is put on by Centermass, Inc. and runs like a well-oiled machine.
If you register the night before, you can get the course of fire booklet at that time and see what the next…Continue
