New Todd..

Well, in this case, we'll call it Todds!

Yes, "Acrunchyfrog" and I, also known as "Peaches and Cream" to the shooting community, had our "nicknames" done on our stocks of our new shotguns.
So, I award myself, and Peaches, the coveted "Todd of the Week" Award.



The lovely wife is off this weekend to a shooting class of her own..

I won a gift certificate good for one free class up at FAS, so I gave it to her. So, here is an overview of the class she is taking:

FAS-2, Defensive Handgun and Qualifications, teaches the fundamentals of defensive handgunning. This is an intermediate level course, open to shooters who present a clean background check or state-issued concealed carry license. While this course is not appropriate for beginners, we welcome shooters who have a strong mastery of gun safety, their state gun laws, use of force parameters and basic shooting skills to start their training at FAS with this class.

Course covers these components of defensive handgunning:

  • Shooting Stances
  • Proper Grip
  • Trigger Control
  • Drawing from a Holster and Safe Re-holstering
  • Reloading
  • Clearing Malfunctions
  • Use of Cover
  • One-handed Shooting (both strong and weak hand)
  • Stress-Point Index
  • Multiple Targets
  • Verbal Intervention
  • Introductions to lowlight shooting
  • Moving and Shooting
I remember my class.. Oh it was fun! Peaches and I took it together.. As a matter of fact, that is where they nicknamed up.. Peaches and Cream! When you get done, you shoot a police-style qualification course. We'll just have to see if the little lady can shoot it any better than her hubby!

I am just now recovering from this weekend. Ken Hackathorn is.. Well.. Professional! Unfortunately, I was asked to not divulge what we were taught this weekend. I can tell you this, some of the stuff was flat out bad ass though! When I say bad ass, think the movie "SWAT". Now you have an idea what I am talkin about! I mean, this is a guy who just got back from teaching the guys in Delta Force how to shoot! That's right! Freakin TASK FORCE DELTA!!

Wow.. The nice thing was, he was honest, straight forward, and very un-PC!

"Some people call a spade a spade, I just call it a fuckin shovel.."

Just in case anybody was wondering.. That is Peaches.. Aka acrunchyfrog, standing with us. He and I have been friends for years.
