I promised the guys in class I would get a picture up tonight, for the guys who were there and that I had a chance to hang out with, you guys were great. I would have been nice to have kicked back and drank beer or grabbed dinner with more of you.

I'll get more pictures up as I get some more time.

If you secure a range, and a dozen students, I bet they would be willing to do so. Honestly, I do think that's the critical piece, finding a good range that will let them do their work.

As you can imagine, their services are in high demand. But send them an email, and take the first step. All the folks I have ever chatted with at Magpul have been very polite and helpful.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained, my friend.

And Stickman, I hope you had an opportunity to shoot a carbine, and not just a camera. That looks like some very happy folks. You all must have had a blast.

I cannot speak for them but some of us have been trying for a couple of years, and have been "assured" it will happen, but it does not (or has not yet and is not on the visible horizon). (And I am not complaining or pointing fingers). Their schedule is very busy with non published .mil/.gov training and other projects and they just have a lot more demand than they can meet.

I am not saying you cannot get one, but it will be a lot of work and waiting and time and stuff if my experience is typical.

Again, I am not complaining or blaming MD or anything. I understand they are busy. Just trying to point out it is more than getting a range and a list of prospective students.

Then I will certainly understand your frustration.

I hope my response did not come across as belittling or making light of folks.

I was thrilled to death when Larry Vickers came to Texas in February, and taught several classes. Work commitments forced me to drop out at the last moment. The resulting oaths and imprecations would have dropped an elephant in it's tracks. :(

I did not mean to sidetrack Stickman's thread. I just wished to offer encouragement to a newer member here.

I do wish you gentlemen the very best of luck, gaining the training you seek. Chadbag, thank you for clarifying things for me, I appreciate your help as always.

Not at all! I don't think anyone took any comments of yours that way.

Another one I am working on bringing to Utah. So far we have Pat McNamara in October!

Yes, sorry to sidetrack.

The MD classes I have been to (both pistol) were fabulous and it looks like this bunch was a great bunch as well.

For guys who were in the class, this was the second day, and it this is when we were picking up light rain in the morning.

Nice heavy rain soaked everything and everyone. If you didn't bring good rain gear, most guys were heading to REI to find it after the first day.

Before the water started to rise??

If it got any higher, I would expect Chris and Steve to start leading the students two by two towards the big wooden boat.....

Serious bunch of folks you had there. That is what we like to call real focus.
