    What's the class, what kind of shooting will be done and what principles will be taught, and where will it be held, and how much will it cost?

    I can't access either link. Work is blocking those sites as gun porn.

    Sounds like a good class and a perfect excuse to get a new carbine :)

    March probably works better for me. 1200 rounds??? Can a Stoner design handle that reliably? Wow, that is about $450 of ammo for the carbine alone if I get a decent price :shock:. I will certainly need until March to save up for both the M4 and the ammo.

    Okay 2 emotes in the same email, if I do any more I will be encroaching on Mack's territory.
    :oops:

    Get an AK. 1200 rounds for it is around $200. And probably won't even need cleaned Saturday night.

    There is no fun in that, I already have one of those and more ammo than that. The purpose of this exercise is to add another firearm to the safe. :)

    You could always shoot wolf in your AR.....then you wouldn't have to force a malfunction by loading spent shells. :D

    Good point! Hadn't thought about it from that angle.
