1-Day Carbine Course: Knoxville, TN

Posted by Abbey C on

A day of training with SOB Tactical. Today was a good day.  I took a 1-day carbine class with John “Shrek” McPhee aka “The Sheriff of Baghdad” of SOB Tactical. I am pretty wiped out from the mental challenge of my first formal firearms training since Riflery Merit Badge in Scouts 25 years ago. It was pretty hot and humid as well, and frankly after cleaning and putting away all of my gear, I am ready for bed. I am going to write a longer post about the class for TTAG, but as I teased this the other day, I...

1-Day Pistol Course: Knoxville, TN

Posted by Abbey C on

This was my second time taking the 1 day Video Pistol Diagnostics course and I have to say it was just as beneficial as the first time. John is constantly improving his courses and they are ever evolving. When the course first began I wondered exactly how much I would get out of the course and if it would just be the same course all over again. IT WAS NOT! I had a lot of work to do after the first pistol course and I used John's critiques and put in the work. When I took the course this time...

I attended the one day pistol course in Knoxville, TN. The class had 10 students with a mix of experience levels, from law enforcement academy staff to novice shooters.

He didn't try to reinvent...

Using the Coach's Eye App and in only a few short rounds John will analyze your shooting and explain everything to you so that its memorable and repeatable. John keeps the round count low and...

1-Day Pistol Course: Knoxville, TN

Posted by Abbey C on

This course was well worth my money. After nearly 11 years in law enforcement this is absolutely some of the best training I have ever attended. Not only does John coach you the day of the training but he provides the video for you to remind yourself later what it was that needs to be corrected. I will certainly attempt to take more training if he comes back to my area. Only suggestion to people wanting to take the course is bring a weapon with a moderate ammo capacity. The 8 round magazines in my Sig P220R meant less actual...
