Well, most cops will get stuck working July 4th weekend (and students are not likely to want to train then anyway) and there is a 2 day carbine at the end of the month. Also Sully is working out the details of a 2 day Tactical Handgun class in WI.

I like the new prices. I can actually afford the carbine 1 and 2 class.

Thanks Sully

Don't you ever have anything positive to say about DE? Maybe we should delete the Oakdale post, too.

No, this is the apppropriate forum for MN happenings such as Oakdale gun club shoots and Defensive Edge events.

Perhaps you should start your own bulletin board if you don't like the posts here.

Oakdale doesn't have a forum or website on ar15.com......DPMS does and you don't see them in here advertising all the time since anyone can go over to Industry and look and ask questions on their forum.....besides, all I did was ask a question ..

Yes they do. However since DE is a paid industry partner for AR15.com they are encouraged to post freely on these boards. It is a MN based company that has quite a few MN alumni. Many post on this board and have thanked me for alerting them to DE updates. I also post in the WI area due to requests by WI members to do so.
If DPMS were to plan events that affected the MN arfcommers they would be welcome to start threads here as well.

If you don't like it, ignore the thread! Why click on it if you have no interest in it?
The DE threads will continue considering the majority of MN members have some interest, the staff encourages it, and DE makes valuable contributions to this site.

Actually, no I didn't get defensive at all. Just answered your question, explained a few things, and made a suggestion that might aid in making your (and everyone else's) experience here a little better.

It is funny how one person seems to evoke such a negative response, oh wait a minute. That is what trolls do? Oh boy perhaps somone should be labelled a TROLL. I do not recall the last positive contribution that our resident troll has made?

I think Sully & Company do a great service to the shooting public of MN and other areas courses are hosted. He is great educator! He can walk the walk while talking the talk. I know Quin... is a doing all of us a favor with updates on DE opportunities. People who take exception to it are just wasting bandwidth. Or perhaps he is just jealous and has to have people waste bandwidth on him! Who knows? Better Who Cares. Quin keep the updates coming!

I was going to take a pass on commenting on this thread.
The last time I took a stand, I'm told I was called a liar when I answered at what appeared to be a simple question.
(I never saw the thread, it was vaporized by the time I got home from work)

I think the Defensive Edge posts in the Home Town forums are fair use.

I don't think I've seen Greg Sullivan ever post a single advert here.
Why should he? His "public" is giving him the best advertising there is. Word of mouth.

I think the new price structure is a boon to those on a tight budget that need to plan ahead. Hell it actually rewards those that plan!

One of the things that many vetrans loose sight of is, yes, the military taught you to shoot. They trained you... repeatedly and often.
Those skills are perishable! I would also add the the world keeps turning. The skills I learned in 1975 have little to do with the world 30 years later.

there are many good schools and instructors out there. I feel very lucky to have one in my back yard. A school that I don't have to take a week off from work, motel and travel expenses to deal with in order to attend.

Quinlan, Thanks for the update!

July will be anything but quiet for me. I'm planning on attending the 2 day carbine, soon to be added 2 day Tactical Handgun in WI, and probably an alumni handgun.

Link Posted: 5/16/2005 8:09:05 PM EDT
I'm doing my best to keep my calendar open for June handgun 1. I sure hope my folks don't come visit that weekend. Maybe I can talk them into coming the weekend of empty hand/OC .

Calendar is printed and a bunch of classes are circled.

I'll make sure Sully knows to bring the Fox and Taser along to Handgun 1 for you

Lotsa Alumni Handgun, don't see any Alumni Carbine yet..... Need more Carbine in my diet.

Sully, thanks for your courses. I took your CCW course about 2 weeks after the 2003 law was enacted & it was very good.

Could you clarify the "alumni" designation? Does my one course for the CCW enable me to take a subsequent course at the alumni rate?

Thanks.

Sully,

Its my understanding that Handgun 1 alumni are eligible for the Al;umni discount rate on the Revolver 1 class...correct?
