We're receiving inquiries from individuals and groups concerned about potentially not having the neccessary rounds to participate in OFA's courses. Hopefully this post will put folks at ease. Our policy regarding about the number of rounds to bring and the number of rounds to shoot has been, and will continue to be this... The number of rounds we list on our course descriptions are only recommendations or suggestions - therefore, You, as the student, are in the driver's seat and if a course calls for 350 rounds and you bring 250 then you just need to regulate accordingly such as; If a drill calls for 6 rounds, and you want to shoot 1 or 2, then shoot 1 or 2 If a drill calls for 6 rounds and you want to shoot 9 or 10, then shoot 9 or 10! We don't have to shoot hundreds of rounds in order to learn all the manual of arms or to learn new tactics or practice a specific strategy If you can, bring the suggested rounds but you moderate/regulate what you shoot. but if cannot bring the suggested number then be conservative in your rounds expended throughout the day so you can train and participate all day. The only exception is when we measure performance with Qualifers - then for score/documentation you may want to shoot the required rounds. But again, you're in the drivers seat! We still strongly recommend 50 rounds for our Basic Handgun Safety class, but if you only have 42 rounds then shoot 42 rounds! And as before factory new or commercially produced remanufactured ammo is acceptable. We look forward training together in the near future - ADAPT OR DIE!
