Scratch AAR from One-Day Minuteman Rifle Course

Wavetops, in brief. More to follow, perhaps tomorrow but more like Tuesday.

  • One-day format is good; not, of course, as good as two-day when you can really work out some kinks and make greater progress, but the one-day deal will do nicely.
  • Price and round count are spot-on.
  • Good blend of classroom, dry-fire, and then live-fire; good blend in live-fire of some close in (under 10 yards) and a little farther out (100 yards), but balance is back and forth at 25 and 50.
  • Experienced shooters will snap in nicely, especially those who remember the two-day format; novice shooters have a steeper learning curve but it’s not insurmountable.
  • NONE OF US SHOOTS ENOUGH TO KEEP THE EDGE HONED. Ask me how I know! Sometimes today I felt like a novice.
  • John R. Murphy of FPF Training is *the best* practical arms training around.

I invite USMC0802 to chime in with his comments.
