Idaho Enhanced Academy

Idaho Enhanced Academy


Professionally instructed and safely operated. This program includes all the factors that the Government requires to carry concealed, operate a weapon safely and adhere to the laws. Information was based on fact, presented in a comprehensive manner and the instructor ensured that all students had digested the information prior to moving on. The range portion was by the book and Terry (the instructor) made everyone obtain the required proficiency through great instruction and patience regardless of the student’s previous familiarity with weapons. I would highly recommend this class.
Terry, question from my retired LEO, "How much of the weapon has to show for it not to be considered concealed?"
Today is brought to you by UHT and Idaho Enhanced Academy and by NRA rules #1, #2, #3 and Number 4. Private tutoring this morning g followed up by range time at Double Tapp.
Another day on the range. Joy is trigger diagnostics and lead therapy.
Idaho Enhanced CCW class completed today. I’ve had my standard concealed weapons permit for over 10 years, but now I’m good for 30 states! I highly recommend Idaho Enhanced Academy if you’ve ever thought about it! Terry Piper does an amazing job with instructions, patience and his stories will leave you speechless 😂
A good day at the range.
More students getting training and equipping themselves with skills, techniques and knowledge.
Private lesson on trigger diagnostics and technique. Nicely done Gary.
When you teach someone technique, do some dry practice on one Target and then give them a fresh target? Meet Gary, and his first shot on a new Target after employing his new technique. Zoom in and check out the X in the orange!
Check out recent guest session on Range Minded Podcast.
I wonder who their instructor was?

So, I got some new guns yesterday. I went to my local neighborhood gun shop to pick up the new G***k 48, G***k 43x and some defensive ammo to try these new guns out for concealed carry. When I was ready to pay for the guns and ammo, the cashier said, “Strip down, facing me”.

Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about gun control wackos running amok, I did as she had instructed.

When the hysterical shrieking and alarms had finally subsided, I found out she was referring to how I should place my credit card in the reader!

I’ve been asked to shop elsewhere in the future. They need to make their instructions to us fi****ms instructors. I always instruct my students on good ways to articulate things.

I still don’t think I look that bad if your blind and can't hear.
Snow Day??? Not for this instructor and RSO!!! Augmenting your training by training in all conditions and situations.

Developing a new round for hitting varmits from out of state. I think I’ll be able to reach Black Canyon from Oregon or Washington.

I think I’ll call it the Tarty Two Twigget High Velocity Shuttlecock Sonic Shaker. What do you think?

Proper technique is key to making this not be a problem. Note to self: Springfield XD’s are capable of a backwards insert.

Mr and Mrs Smith getting some range time.

A little story: Mrs. Smith was not a gun girl, but after a day with Mr. Gun Fu, she is all in. She bought her first gun and can’t wait to go shooting again.

Current status? Wet, cold and prepping for some shooting. 12 students, 2 relays.

Re-running rounds I found on the ground that had light primer strikes. I found about 25 of them. Someone had a bad day of malfunctions. I had a good day of practice.

Timeline photos 04/17/2022

What do you do with pickups from the range? Why, run them again to see if they will work in a gun with a heavier striker.

The two on the left were light primer strikes and cartridges I found in the dirt at the range. The two on the right were some of those I found that I ran through my wife’s G***k 42.

What surprises me is that there were about 25 that I picked up.
