I'll be hosting Suarez International's Fighting Rifle Skills class in Reno, NV, the weekend of October 2-3, 2010. That is only 13 weeks away! Roger Phillips will be the instructor. FRS is the foundation class for all of SI's rifle classes. If you're interested in taking any of the advanced rifle classes, this is the place to start.

For those of you in Northern Nevada and California, this is an opportunity to come train with one of the best instructors in the business. While he may be known primarily as "that Point Shooting guy" , Roger Phillips is also highly regarded for teaching other classes in the SI curriculum. He'll bring the same knowledge, skill, passion and ability to teach that many of you have seen in his PSP classes.

Additionally, this class will be the second SI class in Reno this year. It represents a big question mark: Does the Reno area have a large enough student base and interest to consistenly bring a number of SI classes to the area EVERY year? The PSP class in April and the FRS class in October were set up to test that. The April PSP class was a great success! The number and caliber of students was fantastic! If the turnout for the FRS class in October is anything like that, we should be able to bring 3-4 different classes to Reno next year.


There are still spots open for the FRS class. The weather is PERFECT in Reno in October, the range facility is TOP-NOTCH, and the instructor is FANTASTIC!!! So bring your wife, let her enjoy a weekend away from you at one of our fabulous casino resorts, and COME SHOOT WITH US!!!

I just signed up for AK Combatives and Advanced AK Combatives classes with Suarez in Houston next year. I don't have the money to spend on another class at the moment, but yours should be a good one and you should have plenty of volunteers if you get the word out.

As far as whether Reno can support a class every year, I think that will depend on what class you host, and who is teaching it. If you host more generalized classes, you will get less students because they have the option of taking it from someone else closer to their home. I can fly to Reno to take a Suarez rifle class from someone other than Gabe, or I can just drive 8 hours and take it at Thunder Ranch from Clint Smith himself. That's an easy decision, and Reno doesn't win in that scenerio. A four day AK class taught by Gabe himself is unique enough that I will travel to Houston, because there is no equivalent class/instructor combo anywhere in the country next year. I think you get what I'm saying.

Okay guys,

Only 32 days left!!! Don't miss an opportunity to get the foundation training you'll need to move on to the higher speed classes. Fighting Rifle Skills lays the groundwork to advance throughout the SI rifle curriculum, which is exactly what we are trying to do by bringing classes to Reno.

If we want to keep bringing these classes to the Reno/Tahoe area, we need to fill 'em with students!

So, if you haven't signed up, what are you waiting for???
