Here’s a quick note for my South Dakota readers: after a long hiatus, we’re finally offering training classes again. Because it’s SoDak and the weather is…fun, we’ve partnered with the Outdoor Adventure Center in Brookings to offer classes at their state of the art indoor range. The OAC is just 45 minutes north of Downtown Sioux Falls, and the facility is easily one of the nicest I’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot in. Right now, the only class I’ll be offering will be Fundamental Defensive Pistol on December 19th, more dates TBD. You can sign up for the class here:

Here’s the class description:
