Mike,

Since I don't own an AR15, can I take the class using an AK?

Thanks,
Accountant

You are most welcome to take the class with an AK, I do have a spare AR and a Beretta AR70 and an MP5 that I will bring along for those of you who are black gun deprived or who have not shot them.

I forgot to mention that a sling that allows you to carry muzzle down is required.
Can be single, two or three point. You will need a spare mag or two and holder or a big pocket.

I thought I would offer a couple class specials from Talon Tactical

1. Buy a rifle mag pouch for $15 - thats $5 off
2. Buy a holster get a free Talon Tactical T-shirt thats $12 off
3. Buy a holster and 2 mag pouches take the class free thats $25 off
these deals are for people taking the class only

I am not deprived. I just chose a better rifle.

Will the Spec-Ops Mamaba sling qualify? I haven't taken it out of the package yet so I don't know which direction it hangs.

Larry Vickers is an ex SF dude/well sought after gunsmith. He is a close colleague of Ken Hackathorn and Rob Haught. His classes are first rate and usually booked way in advance. Rich Touch is hosting him at South River. I've heard his classes are as intense as those taught by SDave. I'm looking forward to it.

The 25th is definitely more ideal. What kind of magazine holders would we need?
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 1:22:21 PM EDT
any kind of mag holder will do One is all you will really need.

Here is a pic of the ones I make

What's a good M4/CAR sling? I'd like to use the same sling for both stock types.

Specter Gear CQB 3-point is my favorite. You can borrow one if you'd like to try it.



Ditto.

I'm interested but have never taken a class before ... is it newbie friendly? Thanks ....
Link Posted: 2/23/2006 4:44:55 PM EDT
In for the 25th. Week after that I have hand surgery, so no more postponements!!
Link Posted: 2/23/2006 6:59:50 PM EDT
Mikes classes are extremely newbie friendly. Excellent for the newbie to learn the basics and great for the bit more experienced to get quality repetitive trigger time. I highly recommend getting one of his belt pouches for a spare mag and maybe a Maxpedition Rolly Polly dump pouch. Quality mags and a good sling too. Know your zero before coming. 50 yards is a good BZO. See you there......hopefully.

What do most guys use for sights on the AR's at the classes? EOTECH, AIMPOINT, Iron sights?

Aimpoint and irons here.

Mike,

I am up for the class but would like to know what type of targets we will be shooting. I plan on using my SBR. If we are punching paper I use cheap WWB 55gr. but if we are going to knock down steel I need to bring 75gr. match grade ammo.

As much as Mike gets swept (a lot) I have yet to see him freak out. He'll point out their errors, for sure. I've taken people I don't know well to Mike's class and people I know very well, They all have very good after reports, as newbies.

With carbines though, I don't think any sweeping is acceptable. ; )

Where is Pickens? How do you get there? Is there a web site with info on the range?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Me and (+1?) for the 25th. This will be my first class, and I can't wait. Bookhound, maybe we can meet, and I can follow you up.

March 25th, I should have another AR by then and plenty of time to get some toys for it. Count me in on the 25th if thats the case.
Link Posted: 2/27/2006 6:58:44 AM EDT
I'll be in plus the usual +2.
