This weekend at Gunsite looks to be interesting. I conceptualized this training and presented it to Dave Biggers at XS Sights and Ed Head at Gunsite. The idea was for a ladies’ handgun course that also involved some team (husband-wife) training. These guys put their heads together and come up with a plan.
My interest was two-fold; provide me with some information to build articles on handguns and training for women and to expose my wife to some professional instruction. (I don’t care how good of a firearms trainer you are, you should always let someone else teach your love interest how to shoot. Teaching your wife how to shoot is like helping her put up wallpaper; it’s called a prelude to a divorce.)
It just happened to be scheduled on our 16th wedding anniversary. I’ll let you know how that turns out.
Anyway, there will be a number of ladies in attendance along with representatives from Galco, XS Sights and Surefire. Michael Bane will be filming for one of his TV shows and we will be working with handguns from S&W, Kahr, North American Arms, Ruger and SIG. I hope to get input from the opposite sex on what guns they are comfortable carrying and shooting.
On the way back to the airport, Drema and I plan to spend an evening with John Vehr (Timney Triggers) at his ranch. I’ll see if I can get any info on what gun Timney plans to build a trigger for next.
