I took the two day defensive handgun course [at Front Sight] 2-1/2 years ago, and I agree on the value of the experience. Prior to that class, my pistol range time was just punching paper. Now its presentation, safety rules review, malfunction clearing, etc. I had never considered malfunction clearing! In all my reading of the gun magazines, I had never come across the topic. Maybe it’s not sexy enough to sell magazines.
I also appreciate your review of [the television series] “Jericho.” I had the same impression, though your experienced eye caught more. I guess if they showed the reality of it, it wouldn’t have made it past five episodes. – Brian
