Interesting day today. I went to a tactical weapons training class in Azusa. Learned rapid reload, emergency reload, room clearing, quick draw, multiple assailants, and more. Spent from 930 am to 3pm shooting live 9mm ammo and going through different setups. Quite fun.
My driver an hour out there and back was Sandy Hill, a well-known mountaineer who has famously summitted the tallest peaks on all 7 continents… and infamously brought a french press on the 1996 everest climb where there were multiple fatalities (though none in her expedition). Talking to her about her perspectiveas on the situation was fascinating. Sandy is also known as an NYC socialite, female mountaineer, author and the ex-wife of the founder of MTV.
