To say I’m glad I did this is a serious understatement. For four full days I didn’t worry about the office or any other extra-collateral nonsense and I slept well. More importantly, I discharged more ammunition in four days than I have in the last 10 years – talk about stress relief! Doug, I cannot tell you how impressed I was with your demeanor and your infinite patience in instructing what has got to have been one of your least enlightened shooting classes in quite a long time. I don’t think you have any idea how incredibly important your bearing as an instructor is, not only to me, but to probably most of the people you work with. Having to constantly remind people of the things you’ve told them numerous times has got to wear on anyone’s patience, but likely exponentially more so for someone with the background that you have. Yet, through all the trigger jerks, dropped ammo in the middle of drills, and forgotten equipment (I raise my hand as guilty, guilty, and guilty), you simply dealt with things in a calm and positive manner and helped everyone feel relaxed and good about themselves so we could actually enjoy what we were doing. As a lawyer, I am trained to be cynical first, and second, even when things are going my way, to always expect “the other shoe to drop.” In this case, there was no other dropping shoe, my experience with you and the rest of the guys was literally on the other end of the spectrum, and have an incredible, newly regained confidence in my shooting.
