Practical Fundamentals ~ Jan. 19 & 20, 2018

OpSpec Training has not been to Florida in at least two years, and we’re thrilled to announce we will be in Florida for a Practical Fundamentals class at the Volusia County Gun & Hunt Club near Daytona Beach, Florida. The club is located about 14 miles (less than 20 minutes) from the Daytona International Speedway and the International Airport.

If you have experience working from a holster, and have good gun-handling skills, you meet the pre-requisites for this class. If you’ve taken OpSpec Training’s Intro to Practical Fundamentals, Practical Fundamentals, competed in USPSA, IDPA or 3-Gun matches or have law enforcement or military training you also meet the pre-requisites for this class.

Practical Fundamentals

Using a building-block approach, Practical Fundamentals encourages students to focus on the process of running the gun, tamping down the emotional desire to see results on the target. By using a variety of dry fire and live fire exercises, students are brought through the fundamentals of marksmanship with a focus on trigger control to help the shooter make fast hits on small targets, on demand.

Where to Stay
As you can imagine, there are an unending selection of accommodation choices in the area as the club is close to the Daytona Beach area. There are also many options just west of the range in DeLand about less than 25 minutes away. (The DeLand options may be less expensive than Daytona Beach in January.) We’ll be looking at options and will provide a suggested hotel in the near future.

Food at Lunch Break
To ensure you get the most “bang for your buck” we keep lunch breaks to one hour. If you have the ability to bring your lunch, you may do so. If you need to run out and get a quick meal, there is a Subway located about 10 minutes East of the range at the southwest corner of the intersection of State Route 44 and State Route 415. There is a McDonald’s located about 15 minutes east on State Route 44 just prior to I-95.
