Don't have a pistol :(

I can lend you one of mine if need be, I have a 1911 you can use with one chip mcCormick 10 rounder and two 8 rounders you can borrow - your own ammo of course :)

I do have a side holster for it but no spare mag puches sorry (I'll be using mine) you always can use cargo pockets, fanny pouch, 12G skeet bag, etc

I switched my day off with a coworker so I'm looking forward to build some skills. I'd never had a training course on shooting pistols but have shot my 1911 from time to time. Would a side holster be ideal for this event? I think we all can agree that we should train the way we should respond when action is needed but I won't be carrying a side holster everyday...
any suggestions? I need a holster so that's why I'm asking. Side or shoulder?

Ricky-Ray

Side, hip, thigh holster would be fine. Generally in most classes shoulder hosters are not advised as when your standing in line when you draw you could be sweeping some students & possible instructors.

Thanks! What other equipment are needed? I read that some are bringing knee pads. Any other things? This is my first calguns shoot so I want to be prepared.

This is what I usually bring when I attend a shooting class.

Sturdy Belt,
Double Mag Pouch
2-5 mags
side, hip or thigh holster
eye & ear protection
baseball cap/bonnie hat
dump pouch (store extra full/expended mags and loose ammo)
knee pads
Ammo

You don't need to buy everything if you don't have it. You can always substitute with something else. Ex. Cargo pants or fanny pack in lieu of the dump pouch. Knee pads aren't necessary but the terrain at Burro is a bit rocky and after a few times you go to the knee position you'll be glad you have them. It's more of a creature comfort. :)

Don't forget sunscreen, refreshments, lunch, pen and note pad for note taking. It's forecasted to be 81 degrees in Azusa on Saturday so bring plenty of cold drinks.

I was in Chino Hill's last weekend for a level 2 pistol class and it was 85 degrees out there. I went thru 2 medium size bottles of power aid, 4 medium size bottles of water and 2 boxes of coconut water. It was barely enough. Basically bring extra cold drinks, you can always bring what's leftover home, or aid a fellow calgunner out who didn't bring enough.

Above all else, have an open mind, have fun and be safe. Any day where you get to shoot at least 200-300 rounds of ammo is definitely going to be a good day. :D

That's exactly what I was looking for, Ricky. Now I have something to go on in getting my gear together. Offtopic: Can you or anyone else point me to some recommendations for a 1911 holster? I usually do quite a bit of research on most everything I buy but this time around, I don't have too much time since it's about a week away. I did a search here but mostly found threads of them for sale, not much on reveiws... Just PM me so this thread won't be cluttered with my noob needs. Thanks.

This would be the first time shooting that much ammo in a day. I just hope my vintage M1911A3 can still stand up to this abuse. I just recently had the firing pin and spring replaced so it should be good to go.

Now back on topic! Looking forward to be schooled...

for a holster I would just get what on sale at Turners, take your pistol and find the best fit. First time out for a skill builder means you are not just learning the pistol but the holster and draw and such. It is fun

Myself and my Dad are VERY intersted in doing this, just one problem though. I wont get my 1911 in time (just started 10 day wait today :( ) so we only have my dads pistol for the two of us. I dont think the two of us could share it because of the way the training format will be correct? If not, does the range or Tactical Avenues have any 45 ACP pistols to use for the training? I will provide ammo of course.

Bump. How many people we got so far? Id love to go but i wont have my 1911 yet.

If its not too much to ask, does anybody have a 1911 45 ACP they would be willing to loan me for the day. I have my own ammo, WWB and Rem. UMC. I will be forever grateful :D

pennys dad
