Southwest Florida Blogshoot - Now with Moar Col. Jeff Cooper!

Our very own Miguel has graciously offered to run the El Presidente drill at Saturday's blogshoot.  For those of you not familiar with El Presidente, Pew Pew Tactical has a good overview:

“El Presidente” is a shooting drill originally developed by Jeff Cooper (remember the 4 firearm safety rules) when he was training security for a South American president.  The name came about when it was incorporated into USPSA/IPSC as a standardized stage.

Click through for more detail, but this looks like it will be a lot of fun.  Miguel says to bring your sidearm (and holster if you have one) and at least two magazines (as if any of all y'all would bring only two ...)

Here's the venue info - if you haven't RSVP'ed , please leave a comment.

The Venue:

When: Saturday, February 27 at 12:00 noon until 4:00 PM.

Where: Manatee Gun and Archery Club1805 Logue Rd, Myakka City, FL 34251

Facilities:  Some of our readers are bringing their betters halves (as am I) and the fairer sex will be relieved to know that there are proper, civilized facilities in the club house.   

Cost: $20 per person to cover range rental and sundries.

Dang, I'm gonna miss a great time. I'm up here in Injun country toting barges, lifting bales and freezing my parts this week, though. Looking forward to the review!

El Presidente is possibly the most modified shooting drill in history and ours will not be the exception. For people who  is afraid to be unsafe with all the drawing and turning or do not have a side holster or carry in other ways that can't be applied in a regular range environment, you will be allowed to star it from the low-ready position, facing downrange & then shoot as it is indicated. 

And remember, you are not in competition with anybody else but you. I want to see if we can have everybody shoot the drill three times, write down the times so the shooter can analyze what was done and track his/her progress. 

So once again: Bring your sidearm, at least 2 magazines or speed-loaders and enough ammo (36 rounds) to shoot the drill three times.

See you at the range!
