DeFoor ProFormance 1 Day Private Course - Scoped Carbine
March 30, 2020 - Private Range
This course came about as a result of the Covid 19 closures and Kyle needing to fill time where his cancelled contracts were. The offer was $300 per day per shooter, topic of shooters choice. A buddy worked out the logistics and off we went. The whole thing took about 36 hours from announcement of availability to booked and paid.
Course started off with a quick assessment of hardware and skill.
Kyle explained his preference for a 100 yard zero on a LPVO carbine, which both of us had already been using so there was a quick zero verification and off to the races.
The facility allowed us to shoot out to 300. We worked on isolating various fundamentals like natural point of aim, sight picture and trigger. We did some positional work as well at varying distances which is always a good refresher. Mechanical off set, target area transitions and cadence drills were hammered home to end the day.
It wasn’t an earth shattering course for me but there were a lot of little nuggets.
Throughout the evolutions Kyle was giving us some corrective instructions. The 2 to 1 ratio was awesome for that. He also shot most of the drills with us which is neat. It gets you to feel how his cadence runs while you’re shooting.
Round count: 302
What I did learn is that I really want to increase from a 1-4 to a 1-6 LPVO and also away from a BDC style reticle to something with better subtensions for accuracy at distance.
