End of May 2012 Celebration!
Two New Women Graduates!
|Day 1: Classroom with both Don Enrique & I in Spanish|
I got a call from a gentleman in the states who said his wife, Shirley, wanted to take our training here in Costa Rica. She’s a Tica and came to Alajuela from her farm in Guanacaste just for the course.. I was impressed. She brought her friend, Carolina, and thus began a formal class with two serious women who wanted to learn.
|We began with basics and took little steps. Shirley Shooting.|
Soon they were shooting doubles, hitting their targets and becoming confident.
They seemed to have an unspoken competition between them. We kept adding things for them to do, use of cover, tactics and decision making under stress. They took it all in stride.
We took breaks, which became informal classroom and the exchange of ideas flowed freely. On the last day, Enrique and I shot a bit with them.
We created a bus stop with bad guys. By now the ladies were drawing from their holsters, changing magazines from behind cover and taking out targets in the order of threat..
Each of the three days was hot. We ran and moved and even had to chase cows off the range in the sun. No one showed the slightest bit of discomfort. It was clear that Shirley and Carolina had found a new sport and would be back as often as they could. After all, they were now members of “La Garita Pistol Club.”
