Carbine Elements Theory 1 - Premier Training at @costa_ludus home range is the among the top 3 training experiences I've ever had, if not the best altogether. I rarely take notes, This time I have 7 pages. Many more topics covered than I anticipated. We discussed zeroing, the advantages of night vision, (I started a fund) different weapon systems/setups, the deadly force triangle, working with a partner, ballistics, context, etc. We did drills on malfunctions, balance of speed & accuracy, positions, barricades, distance, compensating for wind and bullet drop, (new to me) we shot at distance through Vtac barricades using odd angles to allow for height over bore while in unorthodox positions, and then some. We wrapped it up with the 'Trail of Tears' drill which was both awesome and terrible, especially in that mountain altitude. If you're looking into carbine classes, just take this one. It's excellent.
Premier training is well worth the extra $100, the added value was beyond that IMO. Chris is a world class instructor on an average day, so with the home field advantage factored in, it's an amazing experience. You learn a ton just eating dinner at the loft every evening, discussing everything from dog training, to vehicle take downs, to politics, to the best places to live when the world ends. Chris and the whole crew are extremely accommodating, a wealth of knowledge and just fun folks to be around. They even won @cariafolkner279 over, she's now planning on taking a class in the future. If timing works out maybe we'll get to stay a whole week and attend back to back classes.
