Tips for Teaching New Shooters

Many people ask me via YouTube and other channels what my key concerns are when teaching people who have never before touched a handgun.  This video series on YouTube is my summary of the most important factors in teaching new shooters.  I hope you find it interesting and helpful.

If you have other things you consider when teaching new shooters, or if you are new to guns yourself and have things you’d like to see considered which I may not have mentioned here…please be encouraged to comment below and let me know! 🙂

I’m currently uploading the introductory video to a new Keeping the Piece Mini Series entitled Handgun Malfunction Clearance 101 to my YouTube channel.  The mini series will include 6 videos in total including:

  1. Introduction to Malfunction Types (Basic 5)
  2. Failure to Feed – What is it, how to clear it, and how to prevent it.
  3. Failure to Fire – What is it, and how to clear it.
  4. Failure to Extract – What is it, and how to clear it.
  5. Failure to Eject – What is it, how to clear it, and some tips for preventing it.

In the future, there will be a follow up series to this one entitled Handgun Malfunction Clearance 201 that will cover more complicated stoppages like squib, hang fire, and more.

New Target Packs Available for 2016 Students

Are you tired of the boring silhouette targets at your local range?  Problem solved!

New target packs will be available to any students who take my Concealed Carry Courses or Private Instruction.  These packs will include 4 full color, full size targets from Law Enforcement Targets. These are targets you probably won’t find at your local range, and give you added benefit when going to practice.  Packs will be $5 and there will be one available for you at the classroom on the day of your course. If you would like to reserve extra target packs, please let me know prior to your class date so I can make sure to have extras.  I’ll plan to have one there per student enrolled unless requested otherwise.

 

These are the targets that will be included in packs for now.  In the future, targets may vary according to what I have available.  All targets included will be good quality training targets in full size and vivid color.

I do not ship these target packs. They are for local pickup only.  If you would like to purchase packs and don’t plan on attending any of my classes, feel free to contact me and I’m happy to meet you in Paris for delivery of 4+ target packs.
