All platforms. Any day during the week. I would love to have a class with Grey Ops but don't want to always have to commute to Sac Valley

His classes are awesome, but I'll stick to his weekend classes at Sac Valley Shooting Ctr though I live in the Bay Area. It cost me more money to take a weekday off (self employed) than to pay for gas to Sac Valley and a night at Best Western.

I'd love to make this class happen. We do have a choice it can be at Richmond or possibly at Metcalf in San Jose. prc77 is taking the lead and is your point of contact if you're interested.

We are attempting to put this on to meet your needs. Let's make it happen! Those of you that are familial with my training style know its all about the student. Looking forward to making this happen...

i am interested, as I live close to Richmond as well. the question is when, due to the current ammo situation, waiting a few months may be more suitable.

To make this class happen those planning on attending will need to register prior to April 1, 2013. We need a minimum of 5 to make it happen.
Short-cut to registration page http://www.gofast1.com/courseregistration.php

Looking forward to visiting Richmond to make this a reality.

I'm assuming you'll need at least a belt and holster before showing up right? (besides the usual eye, ears , 500 rnds of ammo etc)

I got the day off and will sign up tonight depending on the answer to the following question:

If I pay the money to enroll and the class does NOT happen because of low enrollment, will I get a refund or credit toward another class? I don't do credits, been burned too many times and I don't know if I'd be able to attend anything later. If he refunds for cancelled classes, I'm in.

I sent a note to Gordon(?), but thought I'd ask here if anyone might know.

This class will be a GO with 6 shooters. I'm pretty sure we can get 6 like minded folks that would rather hit the range, than go to work.

PM Sent! Not worries, If I cancel the class doesn't happen full refund! If you have an issue refund polity applies. No one will be burned by Gray Ops, you've worked hard for your $$$'s we're here to train, not rip you off!

If you'd like to attend with your 226, I can certainly provide you with a holster and mag pouches. Right or Left Handed?

Thanks for the note, Gordon.

I'm in ... And paid.

with the possibility of another coming. He won't know until late this month.

I'm looking forward to it. Also, I'll be coming from the Modesto area and can get two others in my truck.

Curriculum seems a bit confusing to me. Supposed to be an "advanced" class, but there's 5 point draw stuff, which is pretty handgun 1A. Then later there's shooting on the move, which is obviously more advanced. Seems like 0-100 MPH class which is a lot to pack into a single day.

5 point draw can be very advanced, if you start pressing the trigger on 4 (when your support hand merge with your strong hand), raising the gun to eye level while continuous pulling the trigger, and the gun fire either immediately or a milli second after 5 (sight picture acquired)

I'm contending that the handgun draw should already be hammered out to take "advanced" classes.
