Shane did his usual outstanding job of organizing the various courses, and Slacky and I made the trans-Atlantic trip once again, in August 2016.
Here are some photos from the trip:


[Class on range for the MindsEye Shooting Program]


[Shane shot this group with his sights obscured with tape]


[Taking part was Ken Hudson, who teaches MMA at his superb facility in Americus]

THE HOUSE OF GLOCKS
We stayed in a luxury apartment for the Americus phase. Sitting to have a brew I counted at least ten Glocks in the immediate area, and Shane told me there were more in other rooms. Plus the pump shotgun next to my chair. First thing on the agenda was a brew of tea, and we had problems finding spoons. We were in a place with more Glocks than tea spoons!


[This nice H&K VP9 was lurking amongst the numerous Glocks}

GALEFI
Travelling up to the Atlanta area we attended the annual training conference of the Georgia Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors,[GALEFI] where we were presenting a couple of topics.




[Classroom phase of my presentation on Tactical Pistol for VIP Protection]



[Demonstrating seated shooting drills]



[Class working on drills]



[Demonstrating a transition from striking to shooting]



[A joy at such events is chatting with old friends. Here Slacky is pictured with Court, who has attended all of our US programs, outside our lunch venue]



[Making new friends is another delight. Here we are with noted instructor Daryl Bolke, who also taught at the conference]


[Daryl designed the "DB" model for Strider knives, and the reason behind the design was a fascinating story.


[Presenting during the keynote speech]


[The auditorium]


[Slacky during his presentation on Experiential training]

Back in Americus we enjoyed some free time, which included spending time shooting with our good friend Aaron.


[Slacky tries the .44 magnum revolver for the first time]


[Rod took us for lunch, by boat]


[All good things come to an end, and Shane took us to the airport for our flight home]


[The long flight was made more tolerable by this party of cheerleaders]


[We flew back via Dublin. I hadn't been to Dublin airport since I was eleven, and was impressed by the large, very modern terminal]


We enjoyed a really memorable "full Irish" breakfast in Dublin airort]

Good report.


I miss having breakfasts like that! Mind you they were a once a week event when I had them.

We'll be doing a gym day, which will include knife work; and a range day, which will incorporate Skills & Drills.
Shane may also present a Shotgun day.
Cheers
