    Class review from Caleb Giddings' Contextual Revolver class

    I just posted this up over at P&S if anyone would like to see what the class is about.

    An I frame in .32 S&W Long? Did you get the "Class Hipster" Award?

    Excellent write-up!

    Thanks for the great AAR.

    I've taken courses with Green Ops in Culpepper, which is within fairly easy reach of my AO. Hope they hold this one again.

    The only real issue that I remember was a 9mm bullet jumping the crimp under recoil on a Taurus Tracker. Not the gun's fault. The ammo, if I remember right, was a commercial reloaded brand. Probably not something that would have come with a strong factory crimp.

    One nice thing about that particular gun, though, is that the cylinder yoke has a push button release instead of the more common screw. That allowed the cylinder to be taken out very quickly and easily. If the student had brought some 38 special ammo, he could have quickly swapped over to the 357 cylinder the gun came with.

    I'm definitely hoping that Caleb comes back, and hopefully other revolver-centric classes as well. While it wouldn't be impossible to run a revolver in a regular handgun class, the drills are built differently for semiautos (and even revolvers of different capacity). What I'm REALLY hoping for is a snub-focused class.

    The first Revolver Roundup I attended (which was the very first one) split the two days into 'service revolver' (day one) and 'snub' (day two). The split allowed one to see what they could do with a full/duty-sized wheelie, then see just how much you could do with a snub (J-frame, D-frame). The training/experience was very worthwhile. I'd certainly like to do something like that again.

    I don't know how I missed this thread, thanks for coming out to the class man. It was awesome and I really enjoyed teaching it. I was talking to Melody the next few days how we could add an Unconventional Carry/Snub class to the rotation without getting into territory that other people are really doing a good job with.
