2 Day Pistol Course: October 29-30, 2016

Posted by Abbey C on

I won't call this an AAR, but a summary of my experience in the 2 day pistol class with John.  Without exaggeration, this was the most helpful pistol class I've ever had. John's mastery of the technique in conjunction with video recording and software tools allow John to dissect the student's technique and objectively show the student the many, many improvements that could be made to their stance, presentation, and grip.  It is impressive to see how much better things that I thought I was doing right can be done and the significant effects on accuracy and recoil management that...

2-Day Pistol Course: October 29-30, 2016

Posted by Abbey C on

Just finished the SOB 2-Day Pistol class in Bastrop, TX.  First and foremost, if you have not taking any training from John McPhee, you are definitely missing out on a source of extreme knowledge and skill.  Mr. McPhee is very approachable and eager to answer questions and engage with participants.  He is friendly, humorous, and keeps your interest.  John's class is not about ego, but about passing of knowledge and skill and learning is enhanced through examples of real world application. I was skeptical of the video diagnostics used for the class when I showed up.  John's ability to use...

Bastrop, TX 2-Day Pistol Course AAR

Posted by Abbey C on

2-Day Pistol Course AAR: October 31-November 1, 2015 I took the "Halloween Flood" two day pistol class in Bastrop Texas. Had an incredible experience. John's instruction was clear, concise and extremely practical. There was a range of skill levels and John  professionally melded them for quality instruction for all. Everyone came away a much better gunfighter. His use of video provide immediate feedback and workable corrective measures. Excellent tool. Regardless of conditions,beyond his control, he "backed up, regrouped and drove on". And much credit to Uptex Range who hosted the weekend. Professionals all the way around. Looking forward to more...

Bastrop, TX Half-Day Pistol Course

Posted by Abbey C on

Half-Day Pistol Course: October 30, 2015 The half-day couples pistol course far exceeded my expectations. My husband has tried time and time again to show me proper stance and grip, and I always thought, if I can hit the target, what does it matter? But after watching myself shoot on video and listening to John’s suggestions on how to fix my mistakes, my entire perspective has changed. I now realize how important grip and stance is to my overall success behind a pistol and that my husband may have been right after all…tough pill to swallow! I witnessed several ladies...

Bastrop, TX: Half-Day Couple's Pistol Course

Posted by Abbey C on

Half-Day Couples Pistol Course: October 30, 2015 My husband and I loved the class. Getting in front of people and having all eyes on me while performing a task really got me out of my comfort zone. John did a great job making me feel comfortable every time I went up to shoot. By the second round of shooting, I felt as if John had been my coach for a very long time.  What really hit home was that John took the role of a coach vs an instructor. He didn't yell commands or make me fire a lot of...
