The Fairfax Rod and Gun Club Education Committee is sponsoring SGM (Ret.) John “Shrek” McPhee of SOB Tactical to deliver three one-day firearms training classes. First is a one-day pistol class, second is a one-day carbine class. The thought is that you take them both as a combined two-day class, but that is your option. This will be SOB Tactical’s second year delivering classes at Fairfax Rod and Gun Club. 

Pistol Class Description: “This is a Sheriff of Baghdad (aka John Shrek McPhee) 1-day (8 hours) Pistol Course comprised of video diagnostics; Stance, Grip and presentation, as well as one to one evaluations through shooting drills. My methodology applies video based play-by-play technology and current professional sports coaching models to correct any deficiencies in the officer’s technique and fundamentals. My successful coaching strategy employs a neuroscience approach to enhance every officer’s ability to comprehend, advance his cognitive reasoning and simply learn at a higher level. This course develops “problem solvers” using techniques that are proven and dispels common shooting misconceptions.”

Carbine Class Description: “This is a Sheriff of Baghdad (aka John Shrek McPhee) 1-day (8 hours) Carbine Course comprised of video diagnostics; Stance, Grip and presentation, as well as one to one evaluations through shooting drills.
