This post is just a quick heads up that Scott "Jedi" Jedlinski currently has a few slots left in his October 20-21 Red Dot Pistol class being held at Triple C Range in Cresson, TX.
Here is Scott's bio from the Primary & Secondary moderator listing:
Lifelong martial artist (TKD, Muay Thai, BJJ), no LEO or military experience (save being an Air Force brat), NRA pistol instructor (who isn’t?). I have received previous training from George Wehby of BlackBelt Tactical, Matt Jacques of Victory First, John Murphy of FPF Training, Chris Sizelove of 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Aaron Brumley of Solo Defense, Steve Fisher of Sentinel Concepts, Greg Ellifritz of Active Response Training, Pat Goodale and Wayne Fisher of PFT Training, Ernest Langdon for Langdon Tactical and private training with Al DeLeon of the State Dept’s MSD unit. I shoot anywhere from 200 to 400 rounds a week. I try to compete three times a month. I train BJJ 2 to 3 times a week. Strength & Mobility training twice a week. I am the 15th recipient of the F.A.S.T Drill coin.
Scott invited me to take the class and I would have been a fool to say no. While I am not sure what gun and gear setup I intend on using for the Red Dot Pistol class, it will either be my FN 509 Tactical or an ATEi Glock 19 riding in a PHLster holster with a Trijicon RMR RM06 on the slide.
The information below is the course information:
Must have already taken a fundamental class by a vetted instructor. Student should be able to clear Dot Torture drill at 3 yards
- Zeroing your red dot. 10 yard zero. 25 yard confirmation. Ammo selection.
