Thank you for choosing to train with Frank Proctor Shooting! We appreciate your dedication to being a better and responsible shooter.
COURSE LOCATION: The website lists the range location and or city the course will be in. Use the range/city listed for any lodging/planning info. For classes at private ranges will send everyone an email the week prior to the course with any particulars on range location or address etc for private ranges. We will not email prior to the course unless there is something important we need to tell everyone. All you need to do is to plan to be at the range at the start time. We do this to for efficiency and to minimize communication clutter.
RANGE FEES - Students may be required to pay range fees that vary range to range check with the range the day of the course. COURSE TIMES: We gather and start talking at 9am each day and break for lunch around noon. We take a 30min to 1 hour break and finish around 4pm each day dependent on weather etc.
FOR CLASSES HELD AT THE CMP MARKSMANSHIP PARK IN TALLADEGA- Students must arrive at 9 am and watch a safety brief for the facility.
If you registered for more than 1 person or someone other than yourself please email them this information.
If you have any questions regarding course material or equipment please read through the Course Descriptions.
SAFETY/SAFE GUN HABITS AND MARKSMANSHIP REQUIREMENTS
We just added a video to the website and FPTV in regards to safe gun handling habits. We need everyone to watch the video and perform the gun handling exercises to ensure they have safe gun handling skills as a habit! We also attaching a copy of the waiver and safety brief that we will cover the first morning, read through everything especially the safety brief prior to the class. As stated in the brief if anyone has unsafe gun habits and therefore a danger to themselves or the class they will have to be removed from training. We will not make someone leave the range if they fail at safety but they will only be allowed to participate in the course with an unloaded gun. Here’s a link to the video, watch it and do those exercises and if you follow those 2 rules/habits we will all be golden! http://www.frankproctorshooting.com/faqs/
SAFETY BRIEF AND LIABILITY WAIVER: attached is a copy of our safety brief that we will read through at the range. Go over this prior to the course so that you know what is expected of you. DO NOT EMAIL IT BACK.
We strongly recommend that you subscribe to Frank Proctor Training Videos (FPTV)
USE CODE- LETITDO2020 for a free month of FPTV
Subscribing to FPTV and watching the videos prior to your Class will greatly enhance your training experience and allow you to get more out of the Class. FPTV contains hours of information and exercises that will not only help you prior to the class but allow you to continue to develop after the class. Frank constantly develops new information and exercises, therefore FPTV is constantly updated with new videos!
VIDEO - We request that you do NOT record any instruction during the class. We understand that some folks want information to review however If you are filming during class you are not in the moment and hearing the information first hand. FPTV offers video footage from several classes as well as Frank’s personal training sessions, providing much more information than you will be able to record during a single class. We do allow and encourage shooters to film each other during individual events and use video and slow motion video as a diagnostic tool. Frank will notify you when it is acceptable to do this.
How to get the most out of the time we have together on the range.
As a result of shooting and or thinking about shooting and how to do it better EVERY DAY for over 15 years I have a lot of information that I want to share with my students. As much as I want to, I can’t transfer 15 years of info to someone in 1-2 days, but I push to give you as much information as possible to help you reach your goals!
For every course I have an outline of what information I’m going to cover in the course. Every course is a little different I don’t believe in teaching the exact same material every class for 20 years. I explore new ideas constantly and will bring those to the courses. I absolutely believe in being fluid and adapting to each course, the location and the shooters to offer the best info possible at the time. The course flow also varies based on the range and things available on the range to work with and here’s a big thing that influences the course – the students! I encourage each of you to be engaged during the course. I could lecture for days on shooting (I nerd out about it and love to get in the weeds) I prefer to talk WITH you about shooting instead of talking TO you. Let me know what your goals are and or the skill sets you want to improve on and we can make sure we highlight those areas during our time on the range. I encourage questions and discussion while we are on the range and of course I prefer to keep things light and everyone in good spirits (we learn more when we are all having a good time). In closing please review some of my training videos to get an idea of my thoughts on shooting and my teaching style, show up on range day with an open and explorative mind and we will have a great time doing this thing we all enjoy!
Thanks Again! I look forward to helping you reach your shooting goals!
