Anyone take Kyle Lambs Carbine 1.5??
Has anyone taken this 3 day course?
What did you think about it?
It's a great class from a great instructor, who is the rare combo of being both a highly skilled shooter and having a ton of real world experience. Lots of shooting and gun manipulations. Fantastic lecture on malfunctions. The class focuses on short range to about 100 yards. You get to shoot many of the VTAC drills that you see on youtube (of course you don't need the class to do that).
The class has a pretty high round count, which I think is a good thing but some don't.
I've taken the 1.5, and I'd echo what Kelly-Neal posted above. But watching videos of certain drills doesn't even come close to the experience of attending the course. Kyle was not present at the class I attended, it was led by Dan Brokos. Dan is a pretty laid back guy who brings some real life experience to the table. He teaches from the perspective of someone who's been in a gunfight, which to me was the key to the whole thing. I hate that Kyle wasn't there- I know that would have added a great deal. But by no means do I feel like I got short changed. Three days worth of instruction from someone of that caliber, who has been in some tough situations, was well worth double what it cost to attend. I would say do whatever you need to do to take the class with those guys. You won't be sorry.
I couldn't find the AAR for the class I took. But here's a link to a recent one that pretty much sums up the three days I had as well.
Not trying to thread jack but any of you guys know what the prices are like?
700 with range fees
I've had the pleasure of taking Carbine 1.5 and night fighter courses with VTAC. Some of the best training I've ever had. Jump on it!
It is coming up in a few weeks.
Any suggestions or tips??
Other than the normal carbine course stuff.
