Last October, the announcement went out on Facebook that the Range Master 2016 tactical conference was sold out. It was to be another missed opportunity for me to attend a historic meeting of the minds. Out of the blue, Lynn Givens (wife of Range Master’s Tom Givens) told me that I was coming. She and Tom invited me to attend completely free of charge. I would later find out that I had been the first recipient of the Range Master – Todd Louis Green Scholarship. This is an honor I’m not sure I deserved. This morning (3/15/16), we learned of Todd’s passing after a valiant 10 year battle with cancer. Donate to his charity here. It was an emotional weekend for me, and one that I won’t forget.
The schedule and topics for this year are here.
- Paul Sharp – Recoil Mitigation
- Cecil Burch – Managing the Entangled Fight
- Eve Kulcsar – Gaming the Streets
- Greg Ellifritz – Escaping Common Restraints
- Tom Givens – Defining the Threat
- Craig Douglas – Experiential Learning Lab (photos prohibited)
- Tom Givens – Shotgun Fundamentals
- Tom Givens – Active Shooters: an Overview
This was a tremendous opportunity for me and a rare chance to see my friends in the community. The real gold of these things is being around all of the great minds and being able to meet up with friends (old and new). Literally the best in the business presented and attended. I am the little fish in the pond, and that’s where I’m comfortable being.
Thanks to The Tactical Professor for always being a great driving buddy.
I encourage you to try to make it to one one soon, and I hope to see you there.
