SHOT Show Side Trips – Clark County Shooting Complex

I’m blessed to be spending this SHOT Show in the hospitality of family members who shoot, and they were fairly insistent that I at least see their county shooting facility before I departed. We went out this morning to the Clark County Shooting Complex, and I just have to say, it is a phenomenal facility. Huge number of trap stands, a shotgun sports multi-station course, and a 200yd rifle and pistol range. Best yet, it’s not even all that from the city – maybe half an hour or so. I could only wish for a place like this in the DMV area.

Sig had a big event out there on Monday and Tuesday, so I’m told.

I’ve moved on from the supplier showcase to the main expo hall. It’s very difficult to communicate just how huge SHOT is – it dwarfs pretty much everything I’ve ever been to.

JDC Speed Shooting & Shot Calling Class AAR

As I’ve progressed as a shooter, I try to tailor the classes that I take to address my particular needs. It’s a little hard to list out my needs, as my shortcomings are myriad, but tightening up my speed while maintaining accuracy is certainly high on my list. When I saw Justified Defensive Concepts’ 2020 schedule, and the Speed Shooting & Shot Calling class on it, I knew I was not going to miss it.

If you want some indication just how much I was not going to miss it, here’s the story. I am writing this AAR from Las Vegas, where I will be attending SHOT Show for the first time. I got home from this class at 11:15 PM on Sunday night – as expected – secured my weapons, went to sleep at 11:30 PM, and woke up at 4:15 AM on Monday to catch a flight to Las Vegas. That is punishing, and I was pretty fatigued on Monday, but I think it was worth it.

Unsanctioned Steel Challenge Match at AGC – 1/5/2020

In an effort to start off 2020 right, I participated in the unsanctioned Steel Challenge match at the AGC range near Baltimore. I have never shot Steel Challenge before, so this was going to be an interesting experience. I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t going to count towards classification, but in a way, maybe that was for the best.

2019 in Review, and Plans for 2020

One of my favorite posts to write last year – even if no one read it – was the 2018 in Review post. This was a review of the year, followed by some plans and goals for the next year. My shooting year is basically complete at this point, barring a couple of matches, so I think it’s time to start looking back so I can move forward.
