SEPT/OCT 2022 UPDATE
The last 30 days have been very busy, with more than a dozen classes, public speaking engagements, school safety presentations, expert witness work on court cases and private lessons. October will be busy (most of our classes have already sold out) and then we get a fall break as our annual “no live fire classes on weekends during deer season” agreement with neighbors takes effect.
I am available for private weekday training. Doug Greig is also available for private weekday and some weekend sessions. Contact us for details.

Due to student requests we added another Basic Rifle class on Sunday, October 23rd, in the afternoon from 1-5p. This class is ideal for the new rifle owner (AR, AK or any other rifle with a shoulder stock, no AR/AK pistols) who wants to learn shooting fundamentals, maintenance and zeroing.
DEFENSIVE PISTOL SKILLS 1 (RANGE ONLY)
Also due to student requests, we added a 2 hour range only version of our popular Defensive Pistol Skills 1 course on October 15, from 10-12. Use it as a refresher if you’ve taken the class before, or a short course to learn new skills!
DEFENSIVE PISTOL SKILLS 3
The Defensive Pistol Skills 3 class is the highest level live fire course required for our Defensive Pistol Skills Program challenge coin. Graduation from DPS-2 is required to attend. DPS-3 includes shooting and written tests, and graduates also earn an NRA CCW program certificate. Russell S, in the picture below, recently completed all the coursework and earned his challenge coin. If you have passed DPS-2 and haven’t taken DPS-3 yet, we only offer the course 1-2 times a year, and cool fall weather is a great time to attend!
We taught multiple Force on Force scenario courses, in Memphis and at home. Here are a few pics from those classes.
KR TRAINING STAFF NEWS
Paul Martin attended and passed the Department of Public Safety’s new First Responder handgun course. DPS is also allowing instructors to offer the course to carry permit holders, as a higher level tactical and defensive pistol course. We will have more details about the course and our plans to offer it to students after more of our team attends the instructor certification course at DPS.
Paul was also a presenter at the annual Texas Bar Association conference on firearms law. He has shared his presentation on self-defense legal services on his blog.
I was a guest on another episode of the “That Weems Guy” podcast. This episode was recorded awhile back but Lee reposted it to his podcast stream so new subscribers could see it.
SONG OF THE MONTH
Earlier this year I released a remixed, remastered compilation of my late 1980’s/early 1990’s electronic instrumental work, where I wrote, arranged and played all the instruments on each track. “Now I’ve Found You” is an upbeat Latin & funk song with lots of fancy piano playing in the solo section.
