I haven't done a skill builder in quite awhile and it showed. This was the best one that I did attend so far hands down. I left with many things to work on during dry fire practices. Domo arigato to the staff!!

Can you guys post a recap with specifics?  Couldn't attend cause the wife was leaving for CA and wanted QT.

Sensei covered a lot. Handgun grip and why, stacking muscle groups, stance. Malfunction clearing tap rack was a big aha moment. Efficiency of motion and risk and reward of doing front, over and slingshot racking. There really was too much to recap. Seemed like a little less shooting than previous but way more instruction.

Damn I missed a good one.

I do power stroke because my M&P 9C doesn't have  a slide release, but it's a slide stop.  So for that gun, you have no choice but to power stroke.  So I just got into the habit of PSing.  Had 1 class where we all had to use each others guns and I told our team that they have to PS.  Every single person tried a slide release and took a second or 2 to work thru the problem.

I'm a slow learner, or I would have bought a glock a while ago.
