Default Video documentation of One of Our Student's Progress

Dear Calguns Members,

We've had the pleasure of working with and documenting Nicholas' (one of our student's) progress over the past several months.

Nicholas' first class with us was on September 10, 2011. He had never fired from a holster, taken a handgun class or done any moving and shooting etc prior to this class. We videotaped one of Nicholas' final runs of our assault course at the conclusion of the 4 hour class.

Here's the link:

Nicholas has since attended 3 more handgun classes (4 total) and I am very proud of his progress. He has supplemented his live fire training with a lot of safe dry fire practice at home.

Here's a video of Nicholas' 4th class with us this past Saturday (12/17/11):

Nicholas is shooting a Sig P228 (9mm). I am especially impressed with his timed shots in light of the double action/single action trigger system.

Nicholas' open mind and work ethic are to be admired. We look forward to continued work with him.

Awesome stuff, Maani. I especially like how Nicholas started with slow, smooth methodical movement and technique in the first video ... which is how you end up with the excellent speed in the second one!

Seems like he must've had a good instructor, and the good sense to follow directions.

I don't pretend to be an "authority." I'm just a guy who trains a lot, shoots a lot and has a perspective.

Thank you ZT.

If I recall correctly, you, also said in one of your videos that speed will inevitably materialize once one is accustomed to doing a skill at a slow/smooth pace using the correct technique.

Speed at the expense of accuracy and proper technique is a detriment. Nicholas was curious to see how he would do when timed...and he did great. The timer was a tool to gauge his progress.

Thanks again for watching.
