The Range is in Lock Down

We still do not know when the local range will be open. Our officials have allowed the outdoor ranges to be open, but the indoor range at City Park that I like to use for my training is still in lockdown. When that changes I will let everyone know. Anyone wishing to complain needs to contact the Mayor of Pueblo. He and the Health Department are in control.

Concealed Carry Permits

I called the Pueblo County Sheriffs Office this morning and the recording states that they are not taking new applications for concealed carry until the stay safer at home order is lifted.
They are now taking permit renewals by mail. Call the appointment number and listen to the directions carefully. You are allowed to renew 120 days before the expiration 719-583-4941.

Mr. Happy/Frowny Face Decisional Drill

By tacticalprofessor Claude Werner
For this drill you will need paper plates, a silhouette target, a deck of cards, and a table or platform to put the cards on. The object of this drill is to practice thinking with a gun in hand.
Draw faces on two paper plates. One plate with a happy face (no shoot), one with a frowny face (shoot). Different color markers for each plate, one Red and one Black.
Put the two paper plates on a silhouette.
Place the silhouette at 4 yards (12ft)
Use only the Ace, Two, and Three cards of all suits from a deck of cards and then shuffle those cards. Ace through 3 only
Place the cards face down on the table in front of you.
Sequence 1
Turn a card over.
If the card is the color on the frowny face, draw or present the pistol and then shoot the frowny faceplate with the number of rounds indicated by the number of the card. If the card is the 3, then shoot 3 shots. The Ace is one shot.
If the card is the color on the happy face, don’t draw or present, i.e., no shooting.
Pistols having a capacity of less than 12 rounds will require reloading. This is a good opportunity to practice reloading skills under a bit of stress. Pistols with capacities more than 12 rounds can start loaded with less than 12 rounds to gain this additional practice opportunity.
After all 12 cards have been turned over, there should be 12 hits on Mr. Frownyface and NO hits on Mr. Happyface.
This drill can also be done at home using a SIRT pistol, a toy pistol, a water pistol, or some other simulation. The marksmanship might not be measured but the decision-making and thinking skills are the primary purpose of the drill.
The drill has several variations but for most people, this is a good start to work on decision-making.
Ammo Shortage
After you have been through a couple of these cycles you will learn some things about ammo. 1st, every time you see some ammo you should pick up a box or two. You will shoot it eventually or in a crisis like this one you will have ammo to practice with or ammo to trade for things like food and water. Ammo is always going to be an important commodity. 2nd, I think the prices are very high for what is available. I think the price will come back down and availability will increase. Remember we usually go through this when we have a Presidential Election (hint hint). Don't pay those high prices you are seeing on the web. All you are doing is helping people take advantage of you and all the rest of us. The price will come down and you will be able to purchase ammo again at a reasonable price.

Student Download Page

In class, we talk about the resources of the password-protected downloads page that I have provided my students. I have been working on a new look and new resources for the page. I have been trying to make the information more accessible with categories and organization so it is easier to find what you are looking for. This information is available to my students and not the general public. Great information is available on the legal aspects of concealed carry, training issues, as well as some new information on self-protection coverage and more.

Pepper Spray Training

OC/Pepper Spray is legal everywhere in Colorado. It is one of the best ways we have to defend property in this state. It also serves as a complement defensive tool for anyone that carries a handgun for self-defense. Remember if all you carry is a gun the legal system can say that you intend to use a gun as a solution for everything. Statistics indicate that most self-defense encounters would not qualify for use of a gun (your life is not in danger). I have developed a booklet for the use of OC/Pepper Spray. Feel free to read it and discuss it with your family. Contact me direct for the best OC/Pepper Spray at wholesale prices.

Shooting at the Range

Heading into the Summer months, remember that some events that happen at the range take priority. So be sure to check the events at Pueblo Municipal Shooters. When you park in the lot remember not to leave anything of value visible in your vehicle. Especially guns and gun cases. Also, be sure you are only firing guns that are authorized by the range rules. If you have any questions be sure to ask me about your firearms. In addition, always wear a hat for protection from flying brass and shoes without open toes.
