Practical Fundamentals ~ June 16 & 17, 2017

We can not seem to stay away from our friends at Richmond Rod & Gun Club in Richmond, California. OpSpec Training returns for another rendition of our Practical Fundamentals class. We’ll be visiting on June 16 & 17, 2017.

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 or competed in USPSA, IDPA or 3-Gun matches 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
If you are looking for a hotel in the area, we are suggesting you look for properties near the following communities: El Cerrito, Albany or Berkeley (south of Richmond), or El Sobrante, Pinole, or Hercules to the north. Berkeley will have the best selection for hotels as well as food.

Food at Lunch Break
To ensure you get the most “bang for your buck” we try to keep lunch breaks as short as possible (one hour). If you have the ability to bring your lunch, we you may do so. If you need to run out and get a quick meal, there are options in the area. Fast food restaurants (McDonald’s, Subway, Jack In The Box, Little Caesar’s) are located near Contra Costa College about 12 minutes (3 miles) to the southeast. Limited food options will be available on-site on Saturday and Sunday.
