    10-8 Performance's sister company, 10-8 Consulting, will be conducting several 2-day Duty 1911 Courses throughout the country. This course is based on a comprehensive transition course taught to law enforcement personnel intending to carry the 1911 for duty use.

    The 1911 platform requires a more sophisticated end user to properly operate and maintain than typical modern service pistols. With that in mind, this course is specifically designed educate the student on operational theory of the 1911, helping the student avoid reliability pitfalls of the 1911, as well as diagnose and rectify problems as they appear.

    The live fire portion of the course will focus on 1911 specific manipulations, such as proper usage of the mechanical safety, slide stop, and malfunction clearances.

    As time allows, minor reliability tuning of student's pistols may be performed by instructional staff.

    We have gotten a number of requests to bring the Duty 1911 class to various locations around the country. We would be glad to come to you, but due to the special requirements of the class, there are a few prerequisites that must be met:

    We require a range with a classroom which has a Powerpoint projector.
    We need a minimum of 12 paid students for the class. The class host will be primarily responsible for promotion and student recruitment, as they are more familiar with their local area. We will publicize the class through 10-8 Consulting and 10-8 Performance and handle the administration.
    Please note that our 2012 schedule is complete, and no additional classes will be added. If you wish to host a class, we are will start booking for 2013 later in 2012.
