Mike,

I want to first say thank you so much for allowing us to come up and shoot with you. I had a wonderful time seeing everyone and finding out how bad I really do shoot. That is a first time I ever took a class shooting and a first drawing from the hip. Also great little side holster you make as well. I look forward in taking another class from you. Next time the Miami boy will have to come in warmer weather.

Book,

Thanks so much for allowing me to follow you up. I grew up in that area but its been 20 years since Ive been up that way. Many things have changed. But again thank you so much!

Everyone else,

It was good to see all the old faces and meet some new ones. You guys are the best. VSP good luck to you in Miami, if you get some free time shoot me an email and I can show you that bar trick! :o)

Well take care all and when I get back in warmer weater Ill post some of the pics that I was able to take when I was not freezing my ass off!

Good times for sure!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Vedubin

Mike.....thanks so much for the hospitality at your range and the class! Let Claude know its always a pleasure to for him to grace us with his presence.I always enjoy good repetition although I feel like I shot like shit today(I blame it on the cold). Book(our fearless moderator)and the rest of the GA gang......its always fun to get together and put screen names with faces. It was good to meet all you folks I've never personally met before. Mike,Eric,and Book......thanks for letting me and the others rip on your blasters with happy switches. Eric......I look forward to shooting with you again in the near future. You definitely have skills. Be careful down there in Miami. Until the next time.

Mike and Claude really gave us some humbling drills, today. It was good to see everybody and definitely good to shoot the toys. I really liked that Sten, an oldy but a goody.

Thanks alot, Mike. We will certainly be throwing some cash your way in the near future.

I would also like to Mike and Claude for a great class. I now know what I need to do, and how to do it, to become a better shooter. Practice, practice, and a whole lot more PRACTICE. I enjoyed meeting everyone and Chianshaw thanks for letting Trevor shoot your .22, thats was all he was talking about on the way home. It might be intresting when he goes back to school. The old, "what did you do over Christmas break" question. Could be intresting.

Mike and Claude,

Thank you for a great class! As usual, I learned a lot!

It was wonderful to see old friends and make some new ones.

Mike and Claude were fantastic. I learned a tremendous amount of valuable information from proper grip, to the fact that I am cross dominant ( shoot with the right hand, have a dominant left eye). Thanks to all and I hope everyone has a great Christmas!

Sten and MP5 ran great, thanks to Mike for letting me try out the toys.

I think I would like to get a Glock too! Perhaps a 17 or 19, not sure which one.

I wanted to say thanks to Mike for letting me come to the class and for letting me take the 16 for a little stroll. I had a great time and I appreciated the trigger time. It's always nice to shoot for fun and not practice or train. Thanks for all the kind words and in case your wondering....it's overcast and cloudy, 75 degrees, in Miami. Crappy day, but it's better than 35 degrees and sunny!

Uhhh, VSP, that was training for some of us. Just because the center of our targets didn't look like a sucking chest wound being held together with little square pieces of tape.

Seriuosly though, thanks for the offer to stroll with your 'leetle freen', I will take you up on it someday, that lottery thing just has to pay off, they tell me the odds are in my favor!

Mike and Claude: Much thanks to you guys too!! I learned alot and I found a muscle I didn't know I had. It showed up late Sunday, ouch. I will practice better with the info you guys gave us.

Hmm, you would think with all those Glocks we would have had a kaboom. Hell we hardly had any gun related problems at all, well, except for BookHound's piece of crap subgun.

Promises, promises!


If it does run I do have some loaded mags.

We really should have had name tags...I could have avoided some of you better that way. I have enough trouble with names as it is, then to have to remember two, sheesh.

And I prolly should have taken my camera out of the car, is anyone gonna post some pics?
