One handed? Yes, one handed.
All instruction was followed up by hands on rounds down range repeating to a point which was required to get a feel for the skill. This was a repeated aspect of this class, and a welcomed one, since the initial aggregate was a "preview" of sorts for things to come during the class.
By the time the sun started to set and the day was running down we were just starting to have fun. We broke for an hour or so and when the sun set, and the moon took over we went into the night shoot. Now there are no pictures, since it would just be a black picture with random white light sources. I switched over to my backup Spikes/Noveske AR15 with the mossie mount and a TRL1s, with irons. We did distance engagement in no light and movement drills. Jack talked about white light discipline, he was correct and it showed if you were too quick on the light. I have shot in no/low light before, but with pistols and it was eye opening to have the ability to shoot in no light. First thing I noticed immediately is that iron sights are completely worthless in no light or with just white light, even if they would have been tritium filled I would have still had issue. We were shooting at an object without the use of white light and I had no point of reference with my iron sights. Jack explained this in detail and I would have made the trip just for this part because I learned so much.
End of First Day feast
Most of us decided that we needed to eat so we went out to a local spot to eat. In my opinion this a very important part because we get to relax, unwind and shoot the sh!t with the guys we have been out on the range with all day. Obviously I cannot repeat what was stated, but there was plenty of recap of the days events and drills, also the experiences of those taking the class were made known and I took away a great deal of information.
The First Half (Day2)
When we got back on the range on Day 2, it was a nice 40-something and got slightly warmer, so most of us shed the thirty layers we put on the day before and were in a more relaxed mood, but still had a long days work ahead of us.
The theme of the first half of day 2 was how much we had to learn shooting with the other hand/side. I am right handed (as most normal, non-satanic people), so transitions over to my left shoulder is something that does not come natural. Jack showed us a technique that I have never used before this class demonstrated in this picture:
Pretty damn awesome, and definitely we drilled it enough for me to remember how to do it without thought. We ran a 1/2 & 1/2 using our non-dominant shoulders. This was very awesome since it put me outside of my comfort zone, something I really enjoy in this class. My SCAR has ambidextrous controls which allowed me to use both sides of the gun for safety control, it was extremely easy to run the SCAR on my other shoulder with off hand grip. Also when transitioning hand positions I was able to keep my sight picture and have the ability to fire if required.
Some guys had issues with their rifles, while bad it still gave them a chance to practice other hand/arm/shoulder reloaded and malfunction clearing.
