Trying to pick your favorite part of #themingle23 is like trying to pick a favorite child. You may have one but you absolutely love them all and you’ll never tell.
To the lady behind it all Shelley Luehder Hillyou are a beautiful, lovely soul and I feel fortunate to have been invited to the The Mingle: Openness to Experience and get my infamous Hug.
Brian Hill‘s class was all I expected & more. I Will absolutely be back to train with The Complete Combatant.
I have so many takeaways from the team at Active Self Protection
Stephanie & Kaery Dudenhofer that I can’t wait to implement in class.
What a phenomenal group, looking forward to future training with you ladies.
HK showed up and showed out lol. Gun giveaways, challenge shoots. It was a great time. I got to shoot Howie Marbury personal gun (no pressure) thanks Howie!
It was an amazing weekend. Can’t wait until next year!
WOW… what a fantastic weekend! I wish I had had time to take more photos but I was sort of busy (please add them in the comments )! Over 80 women from all over the US that are in the Firearms training business (most are instructors) gathered together for The Mingle: Openness to Experience to train, network, and have fun!! I was honored to co-instruct the Heckler & Koch block with the fabulous Howie Marbury and our wonderful AI, Karen Whitlock and assisted by Bill Dermody with HK (thank you Bill for loaning all of the wonderful HK gear and donating the ammo)! And thank you Shelley Luehder Hill & Brian Hill and The Complete Combatant for all you do (6 months of exhausting work goes on behind the scenes) and hosting this annual event! There were several training blocks going on simultaneously with top notch nationally recognized instructors… I know the ladies got so much out of the weekend! Thank you ladies for trusting us with your training
