KR TRAINING MARCH 2012 NEWS
RAINOUT ON MARCH 10th, CLASSES RESCHEDULED FOR MARCH 17, APRIL 7
Due to nasty weather this past weekend, we had to reschedule our March 10th classes for March 17th. Some students in these sold out classes were unable to attend the make up date, so we have slots open in all 3:Defensive Pistol Skills 2, AT-2 Scenarios Only and AT-1A Low Light Shooting.
All 3 of these courses are excellent follow on training to our Defensive Pistol Skills 1 class. We won't offer AT-2 or Low Light Shooting again until the fall.
A make up session of the rained out February Advanced Training 6 course is back on the calendar for April 7.

Real world examples of why we teach what we teach:
- Bad gunhandling on viral video makes all gun owners look bad.
- New Hampshire man fires warning shot into ground, is arrested (warning shots are a BAD idea)
- Georgia man kills wife by mistake (ID the threat before you fire)
