1-Day Pistol April 15, 2016

Posted by Abbey C on

I recenty took one of SOB's one day pistol courses.  I have to say I was not disappointed.  Even with a limited amount of time of one day I learned a lot.  John uses technology in a way I've never seen before in firearms training.  John emphasized the basics of stance and grip and dispelled common myths of pistol training.  John also made the course a lot of fun in an easy going, laid back environment.  John's use of video diagnostics made me look at firearms training like I never have before.  The use of the Coach's Eye app made...

2-Day Pistol Joliet, IL April 13-14, 2016

Posted by Abbey C on

This was our second time hosting an SOB class; both years Pistol Diagnostic and one year Rifle Diagnostic. In 13 years in law enforcement, this is one of the most fundamentally sound, yet original courses, I have ever had the pleasure of attending. John does not teach a system. There is no gimmick; it’s experience and scientifically-based instruction that makes his courses so original and highly useful. John breaks down each attendees weapon handling skills on video and then, through video and coaching, makes the shooter a significantly more efficient and effective gunfighter. John’s claim that you bring whatever you...

2-Day Pistol Course April 13-14, 2016

This was the second time I attended John's Diagnostic Pistol training.  The first time was last year and one of the best training classes I had ever attended.  And, that is with over a decade of attending other training from various well known instructors and schools. This year it was a two day class, and it was even better than the previous year.  John's personal attention to every student is incomparable to other instructors.  His experience and instruction abilities are truly at a master's level as well.  For a person with his background, he is one of the most approachable...

Joliet, IL Pistol Course AAR

Posted by Abbey C on

As a woman in Law enforcement, I feel we have a duty to keep up with firearms training. Often times we recognize our weaknesses and choose to ignore it or become too busy to address it. I recently transitioned from a Kimber 45 to a Glock platform and soon realized I had some issues. A friend suggested I attend John McPhee’s (Sheriff of Baghdad) video diagnostic class to address my difficulties. John’s class was extremely beneficial and quickly got to the core of my issues individually. John gets right to the problem with the video and fixes it. He made...
