    Larry Vickers 1911 Operators Course - June 5-6, 2016 - Custer, South Dakota

    This class features 1911 specific range drills that highlight the differences of shooting a 1911 vs other handguns. Specific drills and courses of fire are used to allow the shooter to understand what shooting a 1911 is all about. The real unique part of this course that makes it stand out is the day two classroom portion. In this section we teach detailed disassembly, troubleshooting, recommended and not recommended modifications, and a detailed inspection of each students 1911. If a problem is detected and can be fixed - it will be fixed it on the spot by Larry himself. This will give students the knowledge and skills needed to identify and diagnose problems. Time permitting a return to the range on day two to reinforce what was taught wraps up this an intensive 1911 learning experience. This class is a must for anyone who wants to run a 1911 properly.

    Hello, I just signed up for this class and was wondering on the magazines, when I usually carry my pistol I keep the spare mags in my left front pocket not in a magazine pouch. Will this be ok to do during the class as opposed to the double mag pouch?

    Also, what if any spare parts should we bring, this is my first training class of any kind.
