Intro to Firearms 6

Ok, I’m running out of material, so here’s a few links to more resources. Some of you (assuming I have more than 1 reader…)

http://girlsguidetoguns.com/ That’s an intro-level gun website meant for women. I don’t really know how good the page is. Of course, firearms are a male-dominated subject. Most firearm related material is written by men, but the actual writing is gender neutral.

Also, read some of the stuff by Jeff Cooper. He’s widely considered the father of modern handgun shooting techniques.

Finally, consider some real training from a professional. Of course, it’s best to own a gun to take to the training class. You can find NRA classes here. http://www.nrainstructors.org/searchcourse.aspx There are classes in WV. You can take the First Steps pistol class in Charleston WV. You can take the Basic Pistol Shooting class in a lot of places, including Poca WV. These classes are very affordable, costing only $65 plus the ammo you use.

If you’re willing to travel to the far Eastern panhandle of WV (about 5 hours from Charleston), you can visit the Echo Valley Training Center, which hosts famous shooting teachers like Rob Pincus (“peenk-uss”) and EAG Tactical. Classes are NOT cheap. Many cost $250 per day, and several classes take multiple days. However, this is some seriously badass training. NRA classes are for beginners. These are advanced classes for serious self-defense.

About jurmond

'Jurmond' was the name of my first character in a homebrew D&D campaign. He was a gunslinger and tinker, creating and carrying strange weapons that belched fire and smoke. That was well over a decade ago but I still think of him whenever fiction and firearms collide, so it seems the perfect pen name for this project.
