Unforeseen Delay

Last week I was hiking in Dry Canyon and managed to fall when a rock rolled out from under my boot. After hiking out about a mile and icing it for a couple of days I ended up in the emergency room. After x-rays, they told me I had a broken ankle (a fracture of the distal fibula). So now I have this fancy boot on my foot and orders not to put any weight on it or walk for the next 6 weeks.

So…it looks like I’m going to have to delay many of my teaching activities, including the initial concealed carry class, for 6 weeks or so. I’ll keep you posted.

If you do need a Refresher or Renewal class let me know and we’ll see what we can work out.

The Sidney Paul Gordon Shooting Range has reopened, with some restrictions, and things are going well. They have made a lot of positive changes out there. I’ve received word the local gun club (Otero Practical Shooting Association) will start holding matches again at the range, but on a limited basis. This Sunday, May 24, will be an IPSC match. The .22 match and Cowboy match will be held on their regular schedule in June. Masks may or may not be optional.

I’ve been told that fingerprinting for concealed carry initial applications has resumed at Print Plus, but by appointment only.

So…be stay out of trouble out there, and be safe!
