KR TRAINING AUGUST 2014 NEWS
2014 SUMMER & FALL CLASSES
We have also added more classes to our September and October schedule, including more sessions of Defensive Pistol Essentials, DPS-1, DPS-2, Low Light Shooting, Defensive Long Gun Essentials and AT-2 Force on Force.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT USPSA MATCHES AT THE A-ZONE
KR Training and the Chicken Ranch Shooters USPSA club (LaGrange, Texas) will be running USPSA format matches at the A-Zone range on selected Wednesday nights in June and July. The matches will be limited to 18 shooters, and all participants must pre-register online and pay their $15 match fee in full in advance. 4 stages, 75-90 rounds per match. Shooting will begin at 6 p.m. and run until 9 pm or dark. Shooters can arrive as late as 7:30 p.m. Late arrivals are OK. More details here. Registration links will be announced via the TXIPSC list and KR Training Facebook page.
SUBURBAN DAD SURVIVALIST FIELD DAY AUGUST 2
On August 2, we'll be hosting the Suburban Dad Survivalist Field Day. This all day event will include presentations on many non-shooting preparedness topics: indoor and outdoor sessions, with emphasis on hands-on learning, including chainsaw usage, solar cooking, fire extinguisher training, medicinal herbs, rainwater collection, ham radio usage, snaring and trapping wild game, reloading ammo, map reading and orienteering, first aid, generator usage, bug out bag gear selection, and more. This will be a great value for $50.
DYNAMIC FIRST AID AUGUST 3
On August 3, Caleb Causey of Lone Star Medics will be teaching a one day Dynamic First Aid course. This class will teach a wide spectrum of first aid skills useful to anyone in a life-threatening medical situation. First aid training should be part of your personal safety plan, and just like shooting skills, first aid skills need to be practiced and refreshed.
DPS BACKUP GUN AUGUST 9
The DPS-1 "BUG" class is a chance to use that little gun (in any caliber) that you'll be carrying in your pocket all summer - that gun you never practice with because it's no fun to shoot, but it's the one you are betting your life on. It's important to train with what you actually carry. You will shoot the NRA Defensive Pistol certification test during this course.
