AAR / LMS Defense / Bad Breath Pistol / 24 Aug 2013 / Sac Valley
On 24 August 2013, LMS Defense held a one day Bad Breath Pistol Course at the Sacramento Valley Shooting Center. With the majority of gunfights taking place at approximately zero to seven feet, this course primarily focuses on point shooting from up close and personal, while distracting and creating distance between you and the threat.
We couldn’t have asked for better weather. With it being around high 80’s to low 90’s with a light breeze, it made for a very comfortable range day.
Of course Glocks outnumbered the other handguns on the line with the exception of an occasional XD, 1911 and Sig thrown in. The gear was pretty much kydex across the board.
We had 14 students in this class and all performed at or above expectations. We have a prerequisite of at least a basic handgun course in order to attend. The experience in this class varied from novice shooters to law enforcement SWAT Officers with a little in between thrown in. As stated all students performed at or above the expected level for this course.
With having a lot of moving components, I split the firing line in half and ran 7 and 7 with an RSO. I found this to be more advantageous for both the shooter and myself. It gave the shooter time to top off magazines after each evolution as well as giving me the opportunity to focus more attention per shooter while on the line.
There were no serious issues with handguns or equipment other than a front sight coming loose which forced the shooter to utilize their secondary handgun. The second issue was an XD with a failure to extract that locked the slide in battery. Once we were able to cycle the slide and eject the round, the XD ran smoothly the remainder of the day.
I would like to thank all of the students who attended. This was a great class with a lot of experience in it. Everyone’s attitude played an important role in how the course progressed throughout the day. I can definitely say, I had a great time and look forward to training with you all again in the near future!
I would also like to thank the following companies for their support of LMS Defense and our students.
