Hey, at least you didn't almost pass out in the middle of class.
I thought about you guys today - and thought what a great day it would have been to shoot...alas, my daughter's school/social and our family schedule is pretty tight for the month. I couldn't make CFA's class tomorrow, either, for the same reasons.
I truly believe that the physical/mental exhaustion is something that you get from getting fed from a fire-hose. It's one of the reasons why I like to repeat classes. There's no way my brain can process everything that's taught in those few hours.The one thing I regret doing was changing my Glock 26's sights the night before. I put new XS Big Dot nightsights on (previously using factory Glock sights), but for some reason my aim was way off the whole time. It was only later that I found out that my rear sight had come loose, and could freely slide left and right.
On the bright side, when I retrain with them, they'll think my aim has vastly improved.
Quack shot Costa's HE01 with a gun that he'd also just put new rear sights on and had not really gotten a feel for. It took him a couple of evolutions before he got back on it. You guys who bring new equipment to classes, you are definitely more brave than I am!
it just took the first 3 groups of shots before i settled in and it was just the start of 3 days. I also switched to my other gun for a few evolutions w/o any issue before I let the lady use it for the remainder of class. I was tempted to run the M&P because everyone else was and wanted a challenge of a sub-par (for my collection) gun.
