Gunfighter Moment – Larry Vickers

I just wrapped up the NRA show in Louisville KY and I gotta tell you I really enjoy meeting shooters and fans of my shows and products. A great time was had by all and it was especially important to me personally to see all the whole families and children visiting the show. I have been very fortunate to make a good living in the firearms industry and I remind myself regularly to treasure it and not take it for granted. Thanks once again to everyone who stopped by the Wilson Combat, Raven Concealment Systems, Aimpoint and Blue Force Gear booths while I was there to say hi. Be safe and I’ll keep driving on with training, shows and products. LAV out

      Take a weekend of handgun classes with LAV and then come back here and let us know how much of a smart ass you still are. I’d enjoy watching LAV smoke your hide during a class.

    Hey is it possible to get help with a carry class and pistol class. I’m paralyzed. So I’m on a wheelchair. (Short rant I say on instead of in, because you don’t say your sitting in a bleacher. Or that you are sitting in you dining room chair. End rant)

    • Airborne_fister says:

      That goes to anybody.

      • Paul McCain says:

        Unless you have an “all terrain” wheelchair model, like I’ve seen around, you’d probably be better able to manage at an indoor shooting range that offers CCW classes, since they are probably going to be handicapped accessible and have smooth concrete floors, etc.

          Any good instructor should be able to accomadate you, but facilities will play a role. Reach out to Paul Gardner, as he can probably provide feedback on different instructors. Pretty sure he has a youtube channel with videos of him training. I think he is on P&S so ask the question there too.
