Spring is upon us and we will be enjoying the near perfect weather for the next few months before it begins to get hot. Classes are filling up as fast as we can answer the phone, check the fax and read our emails! 250 classes for April and May are full but we are taking names for a wait list. 260 shotgun and 270 general rifle are full for spring. If you missed out this time don’t wait, register for the fall classes.
Let’s talk about which classes are still available during the next couple months. 250 Glock! We ran this class for the first time last year and it was a huge success. This will be our 250 curriculum with a focus on the Glock pistol. Representatives from Glock Inc, will be on hand to do free weapon inspections, give specific maintenance and handling tips as well as all the giveaways. Last year Glock gave away 3 pistols! Come celebrate one of the most successful pistols of all time coupled with the best instruction in the world.
There are still a few openings in Close Quarter Pistol and 556 advanced carbine. I expect these classes to fill completely very soon. These are two of the most real life, practical classes you can take anywhere. Both are reality based and include several force on force scenarios utilizing Simunitions marking cartridges with live interactive role players.
Want to learn to work together with a partner? Be it a spouse, friend or co-worker knowing how to work together as a team increases your ability to survive many of today’s threats such as home invasion, work place violence and carjacking. This class also offers many force on force scenarios.
Rounding out the remaining classes you still have time to register for during April and May- Edged Weapons- you need this class! Learn how to use and defend against the most common tool/weapon available to anyone most anywhere.
Gunsite Scout Rifle, the 2011 gun of the year combined with our 270 General Rifle curriculum, makes this class a must for any rifle enthusiast. 223 Carbine has a handful of slots left. Learning to use an AR15 system is as American as apple pie! A couple of our specialty classes that are only offered once every two years are Carbine Tactical Problems and Shotgun Advanced Tactical Problems. These are the finishing schools for the carbine and shotgun. Don’t miss out and have to wait two more years for these advanced courses!
April is the month for rebirth. Our schedules at Gunsite reflect a surge in interest in firearms training and our 2nd Amendment. Tax Day on the 16th will be painful for many, however let’s celebrate Patriots’ Day on the 19th and remember what makes our Nation great.
The Annual NRA meeting will be held in St. Louis this year April 13-15. Many have complaints about the National Rifle Association but we must always remember that the NRA is our strongest lobbying force in America to protect our 2nd Amendment freedoms and that they are very necessary in this political climate. Attend if you can, I promise it will be a memorable event.
Take care, enjoy your freedoms.
