    I'm highly interested, but the sooner we get a date nailed down, the sooner I'll know if I can commit.

    How hot does Virginia get in the summer where you are Lord Skeletor?

    Both mild summers and mild winters. We're in the mountains, somewhat...so in May, you're looking around 70-75 degrees. Nothing you'll need cold-weather gear for. It would certainly be my pleasure if the Grinch himself showed up. lol

    I've received a number of emails from guys asking about the curriculum and wondering about the pitfalls (legal-ese) about transporting weapons if they flew. Again...it is *not* necessary to bring weapons. I have a number of assault guns and related gear and weaponry to accommodate most of you, should you make the trip. I would just need help with the ammo (no reloads, please).

    If we could either get the Grinch or St. Ordinance to entirely nuke this thread and make a sticky entitled: Come Train /w Guns with Us or something, and I could put together a "what you'll need to bring" list for everyone and cut down on the confusion. Again...It would be optimal if everyone could set aside between 4-5 days for this, but I know that this might be impractical considering the distance that many of you would likely be driving.
    3-4 days would be great.

    Considering the emails that I've received, most of you seem interested in SWAT/CQB stuff (room clearing, building searches, tactical team operations, etc.). This is good because most of it relies heavily upon tactics and not so much on weapons and firepower. On the final day(s) we can goto the range and we can blow **** up with real guns, plus, I can help you out with intermediate/advanced (or basic, if needed) carbine/pistol skills. After 2-3 days of training as a team, I could easily set up a scenario for you guys to roll into against some OPFOR (bad guys) so you can practice whacking some tangos with Airsoft.

    SWAT/CQB sounds good to me. I guess it's not something I'd normally be able to train easily on my own.

    I am now certain I won't be coming. Recent events have reminded me that I finally need to get serious about finding a publisher for my book, so I plan to spend next year working my ass off in preparation for making lots of money (maybe DA Young and I could get some kind of "I got a book published, and not by Paladin Press" tag). Writing aside, it seems that most of you are interested in activities that are hopelessly beyond my means.

    I look forward to the "you assholes should've been there" thread.

I'm carrying about 16 different instructor disciplines right now and can pretty much handle:

    Handgun 1-3
    Carbine 1-3
    Shotgun 1-3
    Subgun/Select Fire Weapons
    Precision Rifle/Sniper 1-3
    Close Quarters Battle (Basic & Advanced Building Searches/Room Clearing)
    Low Light Survival (Flashlight/NVG/Night Fighting Techniques)
    Exec Protection/Personal Security Details (Counter-Ambush/Protection Details, Vehicle Assaults, Principle Protection, Defensive/Evasive Driving, etc)
    Defensive Tactics (Stick/Knife attacks & defense, jiu-jitsu, etc.)
    Small Unit Tactics/Actions (Assaults, Ambushes/Counter-Ambush, etc.)

    We can set something like this up for May or June or something....that will allow the more financially challenged among us to save some gas/hotel money up or something. At any rate...it's up to you guys if you want to make something like this happen. If there's any police/military instructors who want to help out, please...feel free to PM me and we can coordinate something.
    I'm halfway through a M40A3 build and I would buy you any number of beverages as well as let you shoot it if you were to impart some skillz on this. You can even help me pick out a scope!

    JNP - We can make this trip together, if you'd like.

    Provided I can make it, that sounds like a great plan. Like Skeletor though, I need more than six months to plan for it.

    I'll call you later this week. I'd like to go hunting before whitetail season ends and thought you might be interested.

    In my email inbox I got some more Front Sight LOL. A junk email going on about how even fat out of shape guys could still be all badass if they signed up for courses.

    Last week I did something I have rarely done before and will likely never do again... I gave my personal endorsement to another trainer and told you that you were absolutely crazy not to take advantage of his amazing at home, self defense DVD series. Well, hundreds of you have taken advantage of it and the testimonials are flying in. I expected as much, but one testimonial caught my eye because it sums up WHY I recommended that EVERYONE associated with Front Sight take advantage of Tim Larkin's (at home) Target Focus Training Self Defense DVD offer. Here is what one old, fat, out of shape guy had to say.. Dr. Piazza, I want to report an incident which took place in Rome. We had toured the city on the open-top buses, and just enjoyed a glass of wine at an outdoor cafe near the bus terminal. We were walking toward the taxi stand and I noticed a small group of ruffians lounging around the entrance to the subway. As we walked along two of them left the group and began to follow us and close the distance. When one of them reached into my back pocket I grabbed him by the neck, rotated through and bounced him off the wall of a building. I put him on the ground and ascertained that he had nothing of mine in his hands. I looked around for his companion and discovered that he had run off. (My significant other was holding her walking stick ready to strike at either of them). Now let me describe myself... I am 57 years old, 5' 11" and 330 pounds. I am in lousy physical shape, as I work behind a desk and eat too much and don't get enough exercise. My significant other is older than I am, and neither of us is likely to run away from a dangerous situation successfully. How did I become an old, fat, out of shape killing machine? Well the old, fat, and out of shape part took years to perfect, but sometime in 2006 I became aware of Tim Larkin and Target Focus Training... I was interested in the philosophy expressed on the TFT web-site. Two things impressed me immediately. The first was the concentration on function, not form. The objective is to cause a disabling injury to your opponent. Second, the training is available to people of every size, gender and physical condition. The size or condition of the opponent is of secondary importance because the physiological reactions to the TFT strikes and kicks are involuntary. If one learns to deliver a disabling injury and follows through, no opponent can prevent one's successful self defense. I ordered the DVD set and it arrived promptly. Tim Larkin made the point that criminal violence doesn't depend on skill or practice, but on inflicting injury on a victim. I watched the DVDs every night for a week and realized that this information was useful and of vital importance. The sessions are well described, the instructions are clear, and the practice shown is illustrative and helpful. I learned a good deal from this abbreviated set of DVDs and was determined to get more TFT training. When the sixteen disc course became available I immediately sent for it. It took me a couple of weeks of evening sessions to watch the whole series, which essentially condenses the three day live course into about 16 hours of instruction. This set of DVDs is terrific! The whole course is presented logically, with the sections on asocial violence, legal responsibility and post incident considerations thoroughly handled. Each section on different types of injuries is concisely covered, and the demonstrations are just as real as when you are attending the class. No one is seriously injured, thanks to the quality of the instruction, but some of the instructors and mastery class members come away with bruises. You watch real people practicing the moves, being coached by first class instructors and learning to strike, rotate and follow through. I have re-watched almost every one of those discs and find each time that I learn more and reinforce the training. The technical side is thoroughly and carefully explained and the time devoted to practice and coaching makes it clear how the training works and why it does. I cannot endorse them highly enough, and would cheerfully buy them again at full price, which is remarkable for someone as frugal as myself. I like to travel and to walk around the various cities we visit both in the U.S. and abroad. In the past I have been apprehensive in various neighborhoods and wondered how I would react if we were confronted by bad guys. I regarded many younger larger and probably stronger individuals as threatening, especially in unfamiliar neighborhoods and unknown cultural situations. I stayed aware, and tried to appear confident but I was uncertain what I would do if violence began. With the benefit of the TFT training DVDs I know that, while anyone can be outnumbered (and TFT is excellent on dealing with multiple adversaries) I have the tools to protect myself and my significant other against an attacker. Since viewing and reviewing the TFT DVDs I look at bad guys on the street as potential Targets, not as Threats. It is hard to convey in words how profound the transformation has been. The TFT training DVD course is extremely thorough, dealing with everything from the nature of violence to the physics and physiology of inflicting injury to dealing with armed attackers and multiple adversaries. I do not believe that anyone can watch the whole sixteen hours or so and not come away prepared to defend him or herself effectively from violence in our society. I'm a great example of how anyone of any age or physical condition can learn how violence works, and how to counter it by causing injury to an opponent. I can't think of a better opportunity to learn how, than these TFT training DVD's and want to thank you for bringing this information to the attention of your Front Sight students. You are right, an unimaginable amount of freedom and self confidence is gained through knowing how to incapacitate a violent opponent within 5 seconds or less. Take it from me, you are also correct that everyone should own this amazing DVD collection! Sincerely, John RapinchukImporterSan Francisco

    Much as I would like to attend, I fear I'll have to pass. It seems that instead of going on vacation I am getting divorced, and in this f(*&# up socialist country that means I might lose my firearms. Way to get screwed both ways.
