Come on out for an awesome oppertunity guys.

We have dudes flying in from out of state in order to attend. .mil sneaky pete's, LE cool guys and retards like myself will be in attendance.

How often to you get to shoot from, into, and through cars?

Did I say you get to shoot cars?

Bring your duty ammo and see how it performs against various barriers in the vehicle.

Crazy things happen out in Okanogan CO and you never know what extra events we will be pulling out of our sleeves during this course.

This is not an oppertunity to miss.

I did mention that we are shooting cars and stuff right?

Some rumors have been flying about the ammo count.

I talked to Kevin the other day about ammo and the word I got was-

-There are some addtional things they are in the process of working into the training plan.
-As of TUES 06/17/10 the ammo count has not OFFICIALLY changed.
-It is STRONGLY RECOMENDED that you bring more ammo if possible.
-If you have to cart some extra home, so be it. I do not think you want to be the guy that cannot train to the max because you did not bring extra.
-The local Walmart is doing better with ammo supply, but do not count on being able to get any ammo within 100 miles of our fair city.

Like I said, and have hinted at before, the intent for this class is to push beyond what is normally accomplished in a two day course like this.

FYI, for anyone that is on the fence, we are getting close to having the class full. Express your interest and get in while you can.

We are three weeks out and have had a cancelation (unfortunately, me as some mandatory .mil training got moved around and this class is right in the middle of it). With me bowing out, this leaves two slots open that I am tracking on.

If you are *****footing around on this class, you are about to run out of time.

The ammo count has been upped to 500 rounds for each platform as a minimum. The more you bring, the more you can get out of the class. Keep in mind that if you do not forecast your ammo properly, then resupply around here is a very chancy thing.

The plus side of having to bring in extra ammo is that extra’s have been added to the curriculum beyond your “typical” VT type course.

I have been told that a third instructor is being brought in to ensure a 3 or 4 to 1 student/instructor ratio.

People that are in the know about this class are flying in from all across the country.

This is a class that is not offered very often. Get out here, shoot some cars, meet some good guys and get some great training.

I will be out of communication from the 22nd of July on. If you have any special needs or questions on the class, let me know.
