New here, just wanted to introduce myself. 

I am a avid hunter and into self defense training and am getting involved in long range shooting.  I have my first formal precision rifle class coming up soon.  I love trying and learning about new optics.  IOR and Meopta are my two favorite brands amazing glass and quality in both brands.

Thanks
Jason

I have been attending classes at Front Sight for a couple years now.  They teach the modified harries technique.  The bladed off push and pull thing.  But as we all know when you start training real tactics the whole stopping and blading off before a shoot-out doesn't really happen.  Big%20Smile  But I have learned a lot and enjoyed the ride and made and met a lot of good friends.

I have my 2 precision rifle courses coming up there in March and April then hopefully in the Fall or 08 I can get out to Central Virginia Tactial and train with master Flea.  Word on the street is he is one of the best teachers and precision shooters out there.

St,

Cool I have studied WING CHUN for about 10 years now.it's a close quarters fighting system that works really well with self defence.It combin's angles and the use of oncomming energy's with out wasted motion.but it is brutal.most of the people i have tought didn't understaind that the person they are about to fight off wants to hurt them really bad and they are going to have to hurt them really bad first.they get squimish about it but oh well

Enuff blabing from me welcome to the OT again and if your ever around ATL Ga stop by we can swap some knowledge.

I figured out after I posted you were talking hand to hand while I was talking gun training.  But Front Sight teaches a few hand to hand classes, but I have just not hit any of them up yet.  I am to addicted to the rifle and handgun tactics classes, they are just to fun.
