    I'd give Alias a call. I'm sure they would be more than helpful with your questions.

    This still has to be one of the best original posts ever. I have read this thread at least a half-dozen times now. Again, since I am back to having enough time to start taking some courses. Thanks again Mr. Jack.

    Just signed up for my first class and am pretty stoked. It's lavs 1911 operators course, on spare parts what would you recommend I bring? I was obviously going to bring my primary which is a trp operator, but was thinking I might bring my backup although it's a rock island armory and I don't have a whole world of faith in it. But spare parts, what should I bring?

    Definitely bring the backup, it won't hurt. How many rounds on your primary? I'd bring a new recoil spring. Maybe an extractor as well, but I really have no idea what it takes to replace that so it may not be feasible on the road. Other than that, mags and o-rings for your grips. That's probably about it though.

    I'm not sure. I don't track rounds for it less than 1500 though.

    I read on another forum that if you build your own AR, PLEASE put it through a wringer before you bring it to class. This guy had taught hundreds of classes (I think he was with Front Sight) and said 90% of the time when somebody's gun fails in the middle of a lesson, it's a home-built job.

    Replying to an old thread!

    However...

    This is a tremendous resource. I recently took my first AR focused course and this was plenty helpful. Sure I had a rolling toolbox worth of stuff with me, but I did have to use some things I wasn't expecting to.

    Thank you to all who have contributed and compiled information together.

    Iím looking at taking a carbine course this winter, itíll be my first carbine class. Donít know how to ask this without sounding like a douche so just going to ask. I have a chest rig setup that Iíve used, and itís got lvl iv plates in it. Being a basic class should I still run that or go get something different for mags and dump pouches?

    Thanks

    I’m a nobody that’s taken a few training classes as a first-timer. I’ve found that using what I already have and am familiar with gave me the most learning opportunities. There’s always somebody in class with a hot new setup and inevitably spends more time figuring that out than learning the course material. Of course, there are basic requirements of any particular class and the courses I’ve taken usually have a good description of recommended equipment like knee pads, minimum mags and reloads for their curriculum, etc.

    I would run what you're used to. Not sure what kind of physical shape you're in or how long you're used to wearing your plate carrier, but if the weight/fatigue becomes an issue during class you could probably just remove the plates and still use your PC as a chest rig for spare mags, etc.
