There’s a funny thing about doing something a long time; how teaching develops into a personal read for each student. Years ago, as a certified NRA instructor, I used to teach basic Home Defense. There were often ten students in a class. I made them safe and they shot well enough for the times. But now my teaching is more organic and personal with one or two students at a time.
Take Tom and Carol for example; they had no pride to overcome, they just wanted to be able to defend themselves for these times. I’ve been working with couples a lot since I started teaching again. I show them how to work together and make a dark and dreary subject fun. Sorry there aren’t more pictures. We had a great 2 days; they took me to “Jalapenos”, a great Mexican restaurant in Alajuela and I taught them to Shoot. We’re friends now, how cool is that? Paul
The other day my daughter was helping me clean up my computer. We decided to remove some pictures off my Picasa site. Next thing I know, pictures were missing on my blog. All this talk about privacy is somehow tied to how people feel about personal defense. I’m happy to live in Costa Rica where my rights are respected. I believe however, that I’ll be looking for a cloudless sky in the future and choose more wisely the company I build my next blog with. Will keep you posted. Paul

I thought I’d get away cheap, fire a few rounds and go home, but no… we got into a real shoot out. No one kept score but these guys shot very well and I had to pay attention to stay with them. This kind of day is what La Garita Pistol Club is all about; camaraderie, good spirit and improving our game. We had fun!
Those of you who have taken my courses and others who have come to shoot on
Last Sunday of The Month
We’re waiting for you!
Two More Graduates for La Garita Pistol Club
They chose the Brown Bag Special, (can’t blame them), so I thought I’d randomly find a picture…
|Practicing Situational Awareness, really, there were only 2 of them…|
They shot very well indeed; and I expect to see them on regular monthly gatherings. Congratulations my friends!
