going to give free handgun instruction at Ft. Huachuca

to E-4's and below. I'm going to speak with Marilyn (the sportsman's club director) on Wednesday and decide on the format. I'll probably buy another Taurus PT92 or so. Above E-4 can pay but below that grade life is tough.

I won't charge anyone in these classes, but I want to make certain that the lower grades have to opportunity to train.

I think the gooberment needs to overturn that silly Clinton ruling that says soldiers can't carry weapons on their own base. That rule got kids killed at Fort Hood.

But I know Obama won't change it.

Interesting that it is the Sportsman's center that is supporting my lessons.

Re: going to give free handgun instruction at Ft. Huachuca

Good news, partly because I gave free lessons through the wounded warrior group to a couple of guys who are in wheel chairs my entire idea was picked up by te Warrior Transition Unit. I'll teach handgun, CCW, and probably a carbine class.

Here are a cople of NCO's wives from the woman's class.

Why the "one-hand hold?"

Perhaps because that's how most people end up shooting when confronted suddenly at close range, regardless of how they've been trained?

Actually, I'll bet that it's because Uncle Mas not only teaches it, he teaches it that way.

Re: going to give free handgun instruction at Ft. Huachuca

I thought it was probably a CQB maneuver, especially with the off hand up close like that and "out of the way."

Clenching the non-gun hand tends to produce a sympathetic tightening of the gun hand. As Mas teaches it, the non-gun hand is brought back to the pectoral muscle because that's what it is likely to do if the non-gun arm has been shot. Shots to guns, hands holding the guns and the arms and shoulders behind them are fairly common in gunfights.

Re: going to give free handgun instruction at Ft. Huachuca

Secondarily, it's also a way to make sure the extra hand stays out of the line of fire and closely duplicates what's usually going to happen if you have something in the hand when the festivities begin. Or are holding a child, etc.

It's occasionally interesting to hand people something to hold in the support hand before a string of fire begins. There's a surprising number of people who, without instruction, won't drop the item so they can use both hands. Worse are those who dither over the problem.

It's actually pretty difficult to get the non-gun hand into the line of fire unless you've placed it on the assailant, over your target area. While Rex Applegate taught to hold it out to the side, for stability while moving, several of us who teach variations of point shooting place it close to the centerline but at a different height from the gun. My students are taught to hold it close to what wing chun kuen calls the "guard hand" position.

Yes, most people tend to clench their hands when surprised so they are much more likely to retain than to discard whatever may be in the non-gun hand. All the more reason to train shooting one-handed.

Re: going to give free handgun instruction at Ft. Huachuca

Since I was involved in Shotokan for 30 years (Koyama, Phoenix, Oshima, L A) I had the withdraw hand drilled into me for a good age uki. Mas teaches that and I teach it also because it is so useful. The NCO hubby of the girl with the 1911 just ordered a Spartan from Mike Chasse WO3 (RET) who owns Thunder Mountain Custom Rifles.

Re: going to give free handgun instruction at Ft. Huachuca

First class on the 19th
On the 17th i have to go to Range Control for a class on being a Military Rangemaster. (I did it for 20 years) Then I can sign out the Ft. Huachuca ranges myself.
First class will have 8 students, 4 of them Captains which means that I will be able to draw from 4 Units for assistance in the future.
