When you say "bury you finger" what does that mean?
Macka, sorry for the delay.

Traditionally, we are taught to put the middle of first pad of our trigger finger on the trigger for an auto and the first joint for a revolver.

The good SGM and HF0311 says get as much finger in the trigger guard as possible, like maybe the pad btx the second and first joint.

If you watch Kyle Lamb shoot his S&W M and P, he does the same thing.

Anyone take his vehicle class? I am looking for a car to put on my range as a training aid.

Took this class in May of this year, in NJ. Pat Mac was a great instructor whose drills required shooters to put out physically and mentally. Offline, a wealth of information and insightful and intelligent mind.

I know this is a very old post but I just recently took his class in September. As TFG alluded to, there is a lot of internet theatrics that are taught and he does not over complicate things. Simple, and concise in his reasoning. I was able to take a lot away from the training and would highly recommend attending one of his courses if you have the opportunity.

Glad to see this post, and glad to see Pat getting good press. He seems like a truly good guy and a helluva lotta fun to be around.

My question:
Time being in short supply, I am vacillating between taking Pat's class, or one of John "Shrek" McPhee's classes. If I had the time, I'd go to both; but can't go wrong either way.

Does anyone have a POV on which class is simply better for an old grunt that wants rust knocked off, and to simply be a better shooter from a shooting enjoyment and fundamental's improvements for 3 gun?

Flip a coin. Both of those dudes are talented and both have killed more people than smallpox. Go see the other one one day down the road. That being said, I anticipate someday soon you will be seeing guys from the Regiment with as much or more street cred as anyone from the unit, and they earned it many times over. I saw many times both Tier 1 units decline a target package because it wasn't high enough on the JPEL. I never once saw the Regiment decline a target package unless there was a very very good reason.
