Running what you would normally grab is what you run in a class. If you haven't worn a plate carrier for more than 30 minutes while posting for the gram, you will suffer and you won't learn anything because you're to busy fucking with your gear.

Count me in. I can bring some extra ammo for you poor bastards if needed.

I would be in for this think it is a great idea to meet some good folks and great some great training.  I have done some open shoots out there and it is a great place for training.

OK I spoke with TJ today.  He will be in the process of getting a sign up page on the TV website.  Things are progressing and this looks like its gonna be a go soon.

I will make a new thread THE OFFICIAL TIGER VALLEY CARBINE CLASS SIGN UP once the class is up.  It should have a link to the class when it gets posted.

There will be something like $75 -100 down payment.  And then installments.  On the phone he mentioned it would need to be paid in full 30 days prior to the class start.  

He also mentions we need 10 people not 4.  I thought he originally told me 4, but the magic number is 10.  I NEED 10 PEOPLE TO SIGN UP.  

This is a long way out.  I will continually post ammo links so people can acquire ammo as necessary.  

He also asked how many would be tent camping.  I stated that I would, and probably at least 3-4 others.  Maybe more.

I'm tentatively in for this.  That means I have 5 months to lose the cereal gut, and to see if I get a new job after my impending job termination.

I would say we suffer from superior intellectual discourse, but I have usually respected your viewpoint.  

Who knows what will actually happen, maybe it'll be a sign for me to retire again.    I do appreciate it.

As for the topic at hand, I'm still tentative about it.

I'll be there with my travel trailer.

and as far as gear, my old ass benefited from elbow pads and knee pads.

Spare rifle parts and a good idea as others have posted.  My BIL had a gas ring burn up when he went with me to TV.

I've been watching sgammo stock myself daily, debating between just ordering a couple cases now, or waiting a bit.  Mostly to keep the wife happier by spreading out the spending a little.

Dollar cost averaging or some such.

I am a club member at Target sports.  I get free shipping on every purchase.  I been buying just a hundred rounds every pay day.  Spreads it out.  

I wouldn't blame you for spreading it out.  That is why I am trying to post these smaller increment cases.  Its just not gonna be cheap again for a while.

@MADUCE

Sent you another email today.  Contains my original email in case you did not get it.  

I have checked my spam folder and haven't gotten anything back yet.  But we have good positive response to this concept if we can get it planned.  

Thanks

Not yet.  This was the requested venue by many.  This may still happen.  I am just at a loss at this point with no contact.

Yes I've called him a couple times.  Emailed him a couple times.  @'d him here.   Posted in his thread.  

Not mad.  He maybe be very busy.  I've followed his direction but no return contact.

I assume he wants the business but maybe the headache isn't worth it?   Maybe he's not feeling well?

Im just stumped.   I hope we can get it figured out.  But it's just been complete silence.

ETA: At this point I just hope everything is ok for him.

Let me make a phone call tomorrow and see what I can find out.

It's 6 months out. If he's got the date locked into his calendar, it's probably a low priority for him right, if he's otherwise swamped.

It maybe and that is cool.  It's the other details for the people coming that need to get ironed out.  Setting up payments so people who wouldn't ordinarily attend, can.  

Just hope to to get that done n a timely manner so guys aren't in a crunch to make choices.

I just hope everything is ok for him.  I don't presume anything.  I have followed instructions.  I hope we get to have the class.  I am just in the dark right now about furthering the goal.  I felt like there was a time frame relayed that we might be working on it soon.  And I have just haven't heard anything.

I want to stay positive because a lot of people have a lot of good things to say.  I don't mean to be impatient at all.  I just thought there would be some communication or reply by now.  

I will wait for a bit longer, I just want there to be a period of time in which guys can pay this off.  The class won't be cheap there, but people say it is worth it.

MADUCE hasn't logged in since 9/15.  That was the last time I heard anything from him.

I really hope he is ok at this point.  Living in this crazy time with covid, but I have no idea what, if anything, he might be going through.  Just best wishes for him, for now.  No idea what is going on, and contact was left his court so he will contact when ready.  

Just hoping he is healthy and things are ok.

Well, if you DO get this rolling, me and my sweetheart are both interested in attending. I've had some training and overseas experience on both the .mil and contractor sides, and she is former Army Warrant Officer, so she's had very little formal marksmanship training, but she is a natural good shot with rifle or pistol.

I am always on board for reinforcing the fundamentals, and she is keen to learn from the ground up how to run a lightweight carbine like a pro.

I figure this class will be a good experience for both of us.

Let me know of there is any way I can help.
