Anyone willing to assist with training a blind student to identify the nomenclature of revolvers and semi-autos as well as to assist with the drawing from holster steps (access, grip, pull, rotate, join, extend, fire [dry fire]) is more than welcomed to assist. The class will be conducted as normal, we'll just assign an astute NRA certified pistol instructor(s) to the student to assist with the nomenclature (parts of a pistol) as well as walk him through the draw from concealment exercise.

On the range, he will be shooting the same positions that everyone else will be. The pistol instructor(s) will be the "eyes", ensuring safe handling, just as you would with any inexperienced student.

I've taught blind students in the past and have never had an issue with any of them as far as safety goes. My last blind student hit 6 out of 8 plates on the plate rack.


Will there be revolvers available so we can teach the blind person about them?

Thanks to all of the great volunteers:

John
Chris
Geoff
Steven
Tracy
Kira

...and any others that I may have missed. I know of at least one who helped out with setting up the range. You donated your time, money, talents, skills, humor, patience, dedication, and share your toys to make this another successful event.

Thanks to the Lee Kay staff, especially Blanche, whose willingness to support our requests always goes above and beyond.

Great class, great endeavor, fantastic results!!! Thanks to all!!!

I ended up with an exta "Stanley" chrome/stainless steel stapler. It was in my range kit when I unloaded things at home. Anyone missing a stapler?

Great photos, D-Fin! Thanks for sharing!

Geoff, any chance we can see the photos that you shot outside? The ones you shot inside were great! Thanks for taking the extra time to capture the moments in digital medium!!!

There were two staplers in your box when we started. I'm not sure the brands, but one hinged from the back, and one from the front. The latter was an all stainless stapler. John and I didn't add any staplers. Unless you took one off my desk.....

Great class and great camaraderie. And, of course, a great instructor and coordinator so kudos to Dave for putting together the class. Great job, Dave, and to all the volunteers! :thumbsup:

The stainless staple gun was already in the box, Dave, so hopefully you didn't acquire it through some straw purchase or other elicit means. Both staplers worked flawlessly, I might add, with no FTF's, FTE's, double-feeds, and no negligent discharges by the operators.

My only complaint is Tracy and Chris brought along their silencers for us to try. As a result they've collectively cost me $1600 as I liked both of them and want one of each. Well, hopefully, not exactly. I'm going to wait for Trump to take them off the list in his first 100 days and then buy mine at Walmart for $50 a piece on the bargain isle. That'll "save" me $1500 with which I can then buy my Ruger Precision Rifle (RPR) with, of course, it's own $50 silencer. :lol:

No one should make decisions for us when it comes to guns and gun carry. If we do things we're not comfortable with because someone told us it's 'right' it becomes a distraction in an event where clarity and simplicity is needed.

I'll try and get them up on Photobucket today. I didn't have time yesterday. If there are any outstanding ones (i.e. ones that Snurd wasn't in :grinningjester: ) I'll post small copies of them on the thread.

That's how Snurd stays so slim... chasing around trying to photo bomb every picture. :spit:

I wish you wouldn't give away my secrets.

I did have some problems with the stapler I used. I had a couple failures to staple, and one squib. Luckily it was a quick fix, and I was still able to staple up more targets than jfwright1955. :dancing:
