Patriot Pistol training event
« on: October 05, 2019, 12:42:14 PM »
Ladies and gentlemen!

StevenK has selected the weekend of October 19 - 20 for the Patriot Pistol trainer event.  The site will be Beaver Valley Rifle & Pistol Club, 505 Constitution Blvd, Beaver Falls, PA 15010 on the Training range.  Hours are 9AM to 5PM both days.

Please be advised that this course is limited to Instructors (red hats) and Shoot Bosses.
The event is open for registration, listed as a Private Event.  There will be a range fee.  Students will split range rental of $50/day, so, the more who attend the less we each pay.

The SB prefers that we use .22 cal. pistols for this event, which will make it more economical.  I haven't seen the COF, but I assume semi-autos would be preferable to revolvers.  If anyone needs a loaner, I have a couple on hand.  Also, be prepared to expend 600 rounds for the weekend.

If you are interested in attending please contact StevenK or myself for the link to register.  If you are in need of lodging, Appleseeders are welcome to stay at my house, which is about five minutes from the range.

Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.    Churchill

EZ3,

Dag gone, I can't join you as we have a KD at New Philly that weekend.  Sorry I can't be there, I really would have liked to learn about our Pistol Seed offering and see how to run an event. 

To the rest of the Ohio Instructor corp, if you can make it, please do.  We need to add this offering next year to our schedule to expand our reach.  To those that can make it, please give me feedback on how it goes and what you learned.

Hey Corvette,

There will be a couple other guys with you at Tusco who would have liked to do it also.  If all goes well here, maybe you can convince StevenK to put one on in OH.

Actually, when I first got the date my first thought was, "There goes my KD in New Philly!" :'(
