Great Impromptu Training Day

Had a great time with Coach Brian, his wonderful bride Shelley, and Jeff on the range today. Worked primarily rifle short and intermediate distance stuff. Shelley had a great time whacking steel at an unknown distance while gaining confidence in her application of fundamentals, improvised shooting positions, and the usefulness of a 50m zero.

Making hits!

Hitting It

FacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Pssst. Over here. Wanna know a secret? The mystery? The magic to hitting your target?

Sights & Trigger.

Align the sights and press the trigger while keeping the sights aligned. That’s it. Done each and every time and you’ll make hits. Force it, fudge it, half step it, and you’ll be plagued with frustration.

The “secret” to accurately shooting a handgun or any firearm for that matter lies in what you do. Your actions determine whether the bullet hits its intended mark or does not. The thought you put into the shot and the physical act of making the shot result in one of two possible outcomes; the bullet goes where you wanted or the bullet goes somewhere unintended. The difference in outcomes is a result of what you did vs. what you thought you did.

Understanding the difference requires you to be of two minds; both active participant and impartial observer. The bullet goes where the sights are aligned at the moment of the “bang”. In either case there are valuable lessons to be learned…

New Site and 2014 Calendar Posted!

I’m proud to announce CMTT’s new website and training calendar for the 1st half of 2014. Please take a look and pass along the news!

2013 was a “toe in” year for CMTT. We stood at the deep end of the pool and tested the waters. For 2014 we’re grabbing the proverbial cinder block and jumping in the deep end. We’ve greatly expanded the number of available training days for 2014, and our list of available courses will continue to grow throughout the year.

Students turned out for classes from all walks of life starting with our Practical Pistol 1 class for “Ladies Only”. A great group of enthusiastic students that gutted through some truly shitty weather to get their shoot on.

For the classes that followed we ordered up some interesting training weather and should have put fins and snorkels on the the gear list. Despite the harsh conditions every student successfully completed the course and left with a smile on their face.  Wet, cold, shivering… and smiling!

Atlanta PD made a strong showing. We look forward to seeing more of our brothers and sisters from .gov and .mil in attendance.

The response was nothing short of humbling. I greatly appreciate each and every student that has chosen to train with us. Thank You!

A special thanks to my Coaches; Brian Hill and Mark Luell. Both of you have volunteered to help grow this dream and invested time away from your families to help me do so. Without your support CMTT would not be poised for a new year of successful training. Thank you!

To our alumni both current and future; we’ll see you on the range!

– Sean
