I was asked to get a teach a class on basic metallic pistol catridge reloading at Bluegrass Indoor Range. They have had interest in this by some newer shooters. I use Bluegrass Indoor to teach my KY CCDW classes and I also help out with the weekly combat matches on Thursday evenings so they asked if I could teach a class on basic pistol reloading. I have been reloading ammo since I was 12 so not a problem to teach. I have a date for the class and due to a few conflicts the class was put back to Feb. 20th. I have had some people who want to attend taking an IDPA SO class that day so I found another venue for an earlier class. I will also be having this class at Silver Creek Conservation Club outside Sellersburg, IN on Jan.30th. Below is my outline for the class and I hope to cover this in 4 to 4.5 hours in the class and another half hour or more on the range. There will be 2 classes and if you can't make it to one then think about the other date. Course Outline Lesson I Introduction to Reloading and Reloading Safety A. Course Orientation B.
