    Pistol is a G19.5 and backup is a G26.5 in either case. All of this stuff is in use and not new.

    Given the class mindset, do you see most folks in CCW configuration, or Action Pistol setup?
    Sorry Rich, just saw your post!

    I see a lot more people shooting carry gear from concealment but that speaks to what's important to them and the type of shooters most commonly interested in my class (skill-minded, serious defensive shooters.)

    Either of your rigs will be totally fine and you should use what you want.

    I try to have a reasonably big tent philosophy in the testing and not summarily shaft anyone because they like using a rig or gun that I'm not interested in.

    It's probably true that a great AIWB draw from concealment is the easiest way to score highly in the testing. But I think all reasonable right rigs contend and can have a good chance.

    Reloads are essentially a non factor in class so I wouldn't make decisions based on that.

    Thanks Gabe.

    I think at my level of training (just starting out), using my regular simple USPSA D/O holster will be one less thing to worry about. That way I can focus on the instruction and trying to learn.

    Will be great to see ya again. Really looking forward to the class.

    Iím driving over from Tampa as Iím local.

    Lakeland is pretty benign as towns go, as far as I know, but thatís only from driving through on I4 back and forth to Orlando to visit my son.

    Now you mention I donít know where the Range is, but I believe the class info Gabe sent said he would email the location to the participants.

    I haven't been able to make one of Gabe's classes fit my schedule, but knowing the curriculum: if you are not subconsciously comfortable drawing from concealment a lot, just run your game gear and work the lesson plan.

    Yeah that makes a lot of sense.

    I was fine taking Tom Givens class using a P30SK AOWB, but Iím primarily taking this class with Gabe to focus on USPSA, so it makes sense to use that rig.

    Iím pondering taking Toms class again in 2019, but using my G19 in my RCS Perun.

    Either way, looking forward to it.

    I stayed at the LaQuinta in Lakeland when I was last there. I remember there being a few other hotels near the LaQuinta as well but don't remember which they were off the top of my head....let me reach out to the class host.

    I'll be sending out the range address via email to registered students sometime in early or mid August. If anyone would like the information early, just email me at classes@gabewhitetraining.com and I'll send it right away.

    Thanks!

    If anybody does figure out a hotel let me know.

    I may just get a room Sat night to save an hours drive back to Tampa Sat night and Sunday morning. And of course if anyone is interested be glad to grab dinner somewhere Sat eve.
