Yesterday I had my first, informal, introduction to CFS. I got to spend a little time at the range with my boss/instructor before the students arrived. He was recently certified to teach this program. He showed me the Figure 8 drill, which I must admit was impressive and intimidating. He took it easy on my and walked me through a less advanced drill slowly then gradually sped it up. It was a challenge and at the same time showed me some things I need to work on.
I haven’t taken the course yet, but plan to the next offering. From what I have read and what I learned yesterday, this is not for beginners, but if you are an experienced shooter who is looking to advance your defensive skills, this is a must do course.
I had already been working on shooting without using my sights, more natural point of aim, at least at 15 feet or less. It was a harder transition than I expected because I had been working so hard to finish the Winchester Marksmanship program (which I did for pistol), now I can focus more on natural point of aim and spend more time training drawing from cover and the one I enjoy the most, rapid fire dumping a mag into a target. Probably not the best use of ammo compared to real life, but very fun.
