Hits Count Pistol (Las Vegas, NV)

Nov 5, 2017 @ 7:45 am4:45 pm PST

1-day Pistol Overview

Prerequisites: None

Estimated Ammunition Required: About 200 rounds/day.

1-day Basic Pistol includes classroom and range time learning to shoot pistol. Students learn:

  • Rules for safe gun handling & range rules
  • Pistol parts and operation & ammunition
  • Shooting fundamentals: Five steps to firing each shot
  • Two Handed Grip & Stance:  Isoceles, benchrest, and low ready positions (Weaver may also be taught)
  • Natural Point of Aim
  • Shot Group Analysis
  • Clearing Common Stoppages
  • Traditional Service Pistol-Inspired Qualification Test

This course, based on traditional American service pistol fundamentals teaches “Hits Count!”  This course lays a sound foundation for students to shoot groups under time pressure from a practical stance.

Pistol Requirements:  You will need a safe pistol with at least five round capacity to fully participate in this course.  Pistols should be of a modern, drop safe design.

Older single action pistols manufactured before the 1980s and lacking a transfer bar safety are the most common type of pistol that lack drop safe design features, as do some military surplus imports from Eastern bloc countries and Taurus PT-series pistols not fixed during an international safety recall in 2015.  These pistols may discharge if dropped and pose a potential safety hazard to our volunteers and students, and are not permitted.  If you have concerns about the safety features of your pistol you should have it inspected by an armorer or gunsmith before class.

Other Equipment Requirements:  We will not be drawing from the holster in this class and we will run a “cold range.”  You will not need a holster to participate in the class activities, but you may bring one if desired.  This can facilitate moving about the bay with a cold range.

 

The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere

Hear the true story of Paul Revere’s famous ride and learn about the events that immediately precipitated the Revolutionary War. Paul Revere did not ride alone – many individuals played crucial roles in the events of April 19th, 1775.

This history presentation begins with alarm riders warning “the Regulars are out!” You’ll hear about the dramatic stand on Lexington Green and the “shots heard ’round the world” at Concord’s North Bridge. The tale concludes with harrowing life-or-death choices made along the 17 mile “battle road.”

This exciting tale will be woven throughout the day’s marksmanship events.
