Colt 1911 Experience at Range Ready

September 14 & 15, 2023

Limited to 10 students!

Featuring the Colt Competition 1911 9mm


If you’re a fan of the Colt 1911, this is an experience you won’t want to miss.

The cost for this class includes a Colt Competition 1911 in 9mm, 3 magazines and much, much more.


Come to Louisiana’s beautiful Northshore and spend two days training but stay for the weekend and enjoy the culture of New Orleans, a short 45-minute drive across Lake Pontchartrain.


You’ll learn the ins-and-outs of the 1911 platform with Colt’s professional shooter, Mark Redl. Not only an 18-year Colt Pro Shooter, he’s also Colt’s manager of product testing. This is an experience not often offered to the public.


Two days of learning how to operate the 1911 platform in an intimate setting only open to 10 lucky individuals. Classroom and range presentations will be presented by Mark and Gun Talk’s own Chris Cerino.


You’ll get a solid dose of skills from these two professionals. Everything from defensive application of grip, sights and trigger to competition tips and techniques.


Range Ready’s experiences are designed to give you the red-carpet treatment, with attendees from firearms industry professionals, writers and, everything but your personal gear provided. You’ll think you’re one of the big dogs.

Colt Competition 1911 in 9mm and 3 magazines
