A Double Header!
Last week La Garita Pistol Range
Had a Special Training for OIJ agents
by the Director of Security, Gerardo Urena,
of the Dos Pinos Security Team
|Just like real guns but they don’t work. Used for teaching close order tactics without pointing real guns at each other|
And the next day
La Garita Pistol Club
Typical Pistol Match
|My last Graduate in the foreground, hopefully my next, behind, though he shot rather well to start with.|
First, the Police
This was a special day for me. Most of these men are still working and for that reason, don’t have full on face shots.
|The agent begins with his gun in pieces. The white box is a timer. When it goes off, he must assemble the gun, load his magazine and begin his course of fire|
|Targets taking fire|
|The course of fire doesn’t stop until he disassembles his pistol after shooting all the bad guys|
|A bad guy and… judging from the way she’s dressed, a bad girl too.|
There were about ten agents, some
from the local police. Some shot very well, some need practice. Programs like this are extremely helpful in bringing them all up to the same level.
|Joel and Ivan with their rented Glocks, shot very well.|
Of course this was to be our Pistol Match, but if you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know sometimes I shoot alone.
Joel, Ivan and I began shooting at targets. Then I introduced the Orange Ball my sister gave me for my birthday last June. Sorry, no pictures, but we started shooting the ball, then a can that happened to be sitting there. Then the ball on the can and empty ammo boxes on the posts of the targets. All three of us were better shots by the end of the day. You would be, too, if you came the first and last Sunday of the month. We still have Glocks for rent, $20 a day.
The Ball Lives!! come have a Ball…
|Ivan with a gun and a peace sign. Why not, peace is what we’re after.|
|Head shot Joel, he kept tight groups all through his training. Proof of my great teaching ability.|
Give us a Call, we’ll make you a shooter too.
