Dodd & Associates Training

I recently had the opportunity to take the Dodd & Associates Training 4 day Rogers Reactive Course. This course is shot entirely on the Rogers reactive range, as used in the Rogers Shooting School. The Dodd training curriculum parallels what is taught there. This is no surprise, as Ronnie Dodd has been the lead instructor at the Rogers School for over a decade.
His facility is located in Sale Creek, TN, north of Chattanooga. Nearest hotels are about 20 minutes away in Dayton, TN.
This course is available in both a 3 day and 4 day format. If this is your first exposure to the Rogers style of reactive shooting, the 3 day course is probably just barely enough to start having the technique come together, but it’s a great refresher if you’ve been previously exposed. The 4 day course includes virtually all of the curriculum of the parent course… only the night shoot is missing. It’s ideal for both first exposure or to tune up skills. I’m not going to go over what is meant by reactive shooting. There are a lot of videos on youtube that will help more than any verbal description. If you are unclear on the concept, and want to know more before committing to a class, there’s a video available from Panteao Productions: Make Ready with Bill Rogers Reactive Pistol Shooting - PMR009.
I’ve been to the Rogers School 4 times… it’s one of the few training venues to which I keep returning. The Rogers range forces one to work on speed, with which I constantly struggle. This is the first time I’ve trained at the Dodd facility. The Dodd training course accomplishes the same thing, with a smaller class size. The Rogers school has 6 firing points, and schedules 3 relays. Dodd has 2 firing points, and limits himself to 3 relays, also, although my class only had 2. If there are 3 relays, there may not be much free time in the day, but with 2, there were opportunities to shoot extra exercises. In my class, we split these opportunities between exercises that were fun, and ones that forced us to work on weaknesses. As a result, I feel like I improved more than I would have without the extra exposure, and I know I had more fun.
I can recommend this course without reservation; I’m already looking ahead at the schedule to see when I can go back.

What gun did you use?

I agree that Ronnie Dodd's class is a great alternative to Rogers Shooting School. For the faint of heart, it's not easy.

Search on youtube for "Bill Rogers shooting tests".

Boresight Solutions reduced G34. I think the trigger was stock. Dawson FO sights.

Reduced G34? Is that like a 17

I used a G34 also when I shot the Rogers course when I was younger and can see those far targets.

Well, yes, it is like a 17... the frame of the 34 and the 17 are the same size.
However, the grip size has been reduced and modified so that the gun now points like a 1911.
