It was my privilege and honor to work with this great bunch of Gals back in April (rained-out) and today at the Gun Powder Gals Women’s Only Practical Tactical Clinic. Thanks to every one of you, and extra-thanks to Candy Sugarman.

Here’s the scores/results and complicated-technical “Stage Briefs” for their first timed event and two mini-match stages. (Adobe PDF): 2016_0507_GunPowderGalsPracticalTactical
A few things to remember from our time together:
Women shoot better and can hold their guns out there longer because: “We hold babies [like that].” Mystery demystified 🙂
When in doubt about what to do with your non-shooting (support) hand, put it over your heart / don’t put it near the gun. No crossing thumbs, especially all the way behind a handgun. No “support or bracing” (cup-saucer, elbows or arms set on a surface). Seattle police shootout Dec. 2015 – 2:58-3:08 notice the 45-to-90 degree muzzle flip: https://youtu.be/OOycGq3R5Lk?t=2m54s

And, now, I must end this – gotta go do mothers day stuff. I thank you ladies again and wish you all Happy Mother’s Day! Sorry for the long delay in getting this posted – got to “play date” with the Grands after our little thing yesterday and then Computers, internet, servers, the Great “Why Can’t I Just… Argh!” happened.
