The vast majority of my shooting has been done at indoor type ranges meaning, shooting slow and controlled shooting, no rapid fire, no draw from a holster, and no moving and shooting.
I trained with LMS Defense, I was not sure what to expect but they were very professional, and I felt safe being on a hot range with them. Almost everyone there was a repeat student (which is telling). We went through all different kinds of drills, draw and fire, draw fire reload and fire two shots. Box drills, multiple targets, shooting on the move, shooting from cover, prone, kneeling, shooting from your back and fighting to your feet, walk back. Reloading and clearing malfunctions in all kinds of situations were covered as well.
Lots of stuff was covered. I found that I can shoot pretty well, but once movement and stress are put into the mix I become inconsistent. Sometime is can clean the drill, but if I start off with a miss I have trouble resetting my brain and getting on track. I also need to work in drawing, I had never done if before this class so I have no muscle memory for that.
Overall a good experience and I look forward to doing more of this kind of training, it won’t be easy to make time for it. I also learned some things that can be done with dry fire to sharpen many of my admittedly dull skills.
