Trident Concepts conducted their 3-day intermediate Combative Pistol, Level 2 (CP2) class in Gainesville, FL at the Gainesville Target Range. The weather was excellent, high 80° with some high humidity at times. You have to love the humidity and it along with sunscreen would make gripping the pistol a bit of a challenge. The student body was a mix of local LE, some military and private citizens. We had folks come a long way for this class and some that have had scheduling conflicts for a few years finally make it to a class. It all worked out as we had a great time, sometimes classes just click and this one did an excellent job. I love it when they literally move by themselves. We were ahead of schedule for most of the class and maxed out on the round count, both rarities.
Equipment has become somewhat boring to talk about, but something worth mentioning goes back to defining your mission. There was one LE officer who chooses to fire something other than his duty weapon. The complication in keeping the brain aware of the different types of triggers is a lot to ask of anybody; much less folks who struggle to get range time. Do yourself a favor and keep it simple, if you cannot use your duty pistol then at least have a backup that closely resembles if not exactly your duty pistol. I owned several Sig’s while on AD for this reason. I know it might seem simple to most, but it still is worth mentioning just in case there is any lingering doubts.
