Instructor KD in June/July
« on: April 23, 2020, 09:57:02 AM »
Hey y’all,
We re living in strange times. Most of our events cancelled into or thru May and now CMP and NRA high power events, including Camp Perry in July/August, have been cancelled.  I’m testing the water to see if there is any enthusiasm for an instructor-only/invitation-only event in June, or whenever the CMP range at Talladega opens up. We have a great relationship with them and I’m pretty sure they’d be glad to have some shooters for a change. The idea is that it would be two days, three if you want to come early or stay late, with minimal instruction, some great opportunities to shoot on the world’s greatest range and some great camaraderie.

The COF would be standard KD opportunity to re-qual and maybe even a chance to try your .22 come-ups at longer distances or shoot pistol.  It’s a blank slate. Let me know.
There is a really great campsite nearby where we have stayed before for those interested.

At this point it’s just an idea. If there is enough interest we can pick a convenient date and get it on the schedule.

I’m posting this in the southern region and I know Talladega might be a long drive for most of you. If you’re planning a similar event sometime in the coming months in your state please share it with us and maybe we’ll drive the other way. I think spending time with like-minded folks is very important now especially if we can burn some powder in the process.

I am definitely interested.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
– Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer

I'd jump at the chance to come down and shoot KD.  I've already qualified a few times, but 1) would like a refresher and 2) would really like to see how "others" teach KD.

May even combine it with a family vacation.

Sounds like a plan. I'm interested.

Link is up. Event is in Talladega the weekend of June 13-14.
Let me know if you have questions. This is a fun event for the camaraderie.  No instruction. Just friends shooting. There will be an opportunity to KD qualify.
