Quick Hotwash on FPF Training's Defensive Handgun Course

Just finished up the two-day Defensive Handgun Course put on by John Murphy at Marine Corps Base Quantico. A more detailed AAR will be forthcoming, but these are the highlights:

1. Overall satisfaction: Very High. Met all my expectations and a little more. Double thumbs-up on classroom work and range work.

2. Rounds expended: 400-450. (PMC Bronze .45 ACP 230-gr FMJ, no problems.)

3. Gun used: Springfield Armory 1911-A1; only modification I have made is Simonich Gunner Grips. OUSTANDING combination, except for the old-style non-beavertail grip safety that allowed the hammer to bite the web off of my right hand. I lost a good bit of flesh on Day 1... actually that's not correct... I didn't really "lose" it as I know exactly where it went, and that was all over the spur of the hammer.

4. Other gear used: Comp-Tac mag pouches and holster, and Chip McCormick PowerMags. All performed up to specs, that is to say magnificently, and are keepers.

More to follow.

Besides so many strict gun laws sp, one should always learn how to handle guns for their own protection. Many situations may come when you find yourself in danger. You can protect yourself in that case if you know how to use guns.
