IDS is based on years of constantly evolving information about how the body works and what really happens during Dynamic Critical Incidents and has been heavily influenced by the diverse group of instructors that are certified to teach it and the thousands of students who have been through courses all around the world. The program features a variety of specialty drills and training methods that the student will be able to utilize in their own practice after the course in order to continue to develop their abilities.

Initial testing of the new @garmin Xero C1 Pro Chrono was nothing short of fantastic. Set up is super easy and the menu system is very straightforward and easy to navigate. The screen is easy to see and the flexibility of placement is far more forgiving than other chronos. I shot 3 different suppressed rifles including a 22LR and it didn’t miss a single shot. Because of its size and ease of set up I expect this to be standard equipment in my range bag.

Next test up will be a comparison between the readings from the Garmin, Lab Radar and Magneto Speed.

The @zoocity3gunchampionship Fall Brawl has quickly become the competition season finale of choice. Great match, great fun and great people. We had tons of fun, lots of laughs and no shortage of challenging stages. Thanks to the Zoo City team for all their hard work and special thanks to the RO’s and sponsors who make the match possible.

Registration for their sister match Battle of the South opens up December 1st.

Just got the new @garmin Xero C1 Pro Chrono in and this is a game changer. The size is just a little larger than a business card and the set up and easy of use is very straightforward. It makes it very easy to get a quick velocity read anytime you need. More details to come after I have had a chance to test it with a range of firearms. ...
