April is almost over, and it was another busy month, with Massad Ayoob and Gail Pepin visiting to run a MAG-40, and Tracy Thronburg, John Kochan and I teaching multiple sessions at the national A Girl and a Gun conference, and full classes in our regular program.

MAY 13 CLASSES
Three basic level classes on the Saturday before Mother’s Day. Give one (or more) as a gift to Mom, or treat yourself! Shooting Skills, Gun Cleaning and Maintenance with Karl, Basic Pistol 1 (Ladies only) with Tracy, and the Gun Selection Clinic with both instructors.
DEFENSIVE PISTOL SMALL GUN
Summertime often means carrying smaller guns, maybe in a belt holster, maybe in a pocket or other method. Small guns are harder to shoot and drawing from a pocket or pack is slower. Bring your summer gun to the 3 hour Defensive Pistol Small Gun class and train with what you carry. This year’s version of the course will include a run in the shoot house with your small gun.
Don’t have a small gun but want to take the class? Loaner guns are available: semiautos and snubnose revolvers. This article I wrote for USCCA has more information about the small gun course.
SKILL BUILDER LONG GUN
Get more out of your small gun training day. Bring your favorite rifle or pistol caliber carbine to the Skill Builder Long Gun class. This new two-hour course is nothing but shooting drills to improve long gun skills.
SUMMER USPSA MATCHES
The first 3 summer USPSA match dates are May 24, June 7 and June 14. These are Wednesday evening matches. We will start shooting at 6 pm but you can arrive as late as 7 pm and still shoot the stages. After everyone has shot for score, additional runs are allowed for fun and practice. Follow this link for more information about the summer matches. Matches are limited to 18 shooters so they run quickly. Register for the May 24th match here.

LEGACY OF RANCHING EXHIBIT AT BUSH LIBRARY
Over the past 18 months, Penny led a team that put together a new exhibit for the Bush (41) Library in College Station. It presents the history and legacy of Texas Ranching, including hands on exhibits, guns, ranching equipment, and dozens of video interviews with the families that have owned and operated the biggest ranches in Texas for generations. I assisted with video editing and contributed some vintage pulp magazines from my personal collection to the exhibit. More about the exhibit is in this blog post. It will be showing until January 2018.
We look forward to training you!
Karl, Penny and the KR Training crew
