AAR-ish. Talon Defense. Defensive Handgun.

Had a chance to take another class with Talon Defense/Chase Jenkins last Saturday. As has come to be expected at this point, the class/instruction was fantastic. Chase is a really great teacher and is able to explain the content in a way that makes sense to everyone. In the few instances where the lesson doesn't "click", he also has the patience to continue working with individuals until it does.

This class deals with using a handgun in compromised positions, using a handgun while employing cover/concealment, and the consideration that has to be paid to all of the no-shootums that we come in contact with while living our day-to-day. I've taken this class a couple times at this point and I have every intention of taking it a couple more in the coming years. While no, the class didn't contain any super-secret-teir 11-ninja $#!+, it does do a fantastic job of getting you comfortable with the fundamentals of working a handgun, while NOT just working on a traditional flat range.


The video was taken by Abner Miranda.

    That last drill showed in the video looked pretty intense.

    The instructor was using it to induce malfunctions.

    What Farm Boy said...

    It's very handy to induce malfunctions in both handguns and carbines. Chase takes it easy on the first timers, but the folks who've gone through his classes before get several "teacher induced malfunctions" throughout the class, especially in the more advanced classes.

    Trying to clean a handful of Alabama dirt out of your AR or Glock, in the middle of the night, while having a tennis ball taped in one hand, while the teacher is still calling out targets for you to hit can get.......interesting.

    Looked like a rock concert to me.

    Looks like a first class operation to me.
