Alright guys (and girls)...when you get home and get settled in, I would appreciate it if you could either email or PM me your email addresses (ones that you actually check), because I'm going to send you guys out an AAR/Class Critique that I'd like you to send out. I'd prefer anonymous, but I know that most people aren't going to go through the trouble of creating a shill email account just to send me something back. I should've had them available before camp started...but I was just too busy.
I'd appreciate it if you guys took a good 10-15 minutes and completely fill them out...they are tools that help me (and the other primary instructors) determine where my shortcomings or oversights were in regards to the training atmosphere and curriculum that you guys were exposed to. Thanks again for coming and I hope you all had/have a safe trip home!

It was one hell of an experience, one of the best in my life. I could have paid thousands of dollars at a training institute and not gotten anything approaching the quality and detail level of the training from the past few days.Best Vietnam War music video I've ever seen put together by a vet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDY8raKsdfg

Amazing training. I was afraid I was going to be too overwhelmed with advanced stuff, but I think that there was plenty of catering to people like me with very little training. The material we went over will be well practiced. Thanks again to all the trainers.
My training to survive the zombie apocalypse / war with the machines has definitely gotten a wealth of new tactics to practice.

Well...a few people pulled me to the side and thanked us for starting slow and then picking up the pace when everyone was fully involved/caught up. We didn't honestly know what to expect, so we figured on catering to the "lowest common denominator" so to speak; for purely safety purposes. Everyone stepped up to the plate and really came together. I'm glad that you enjoyed yourself.

This was so bad ass I can't even begin to do it justice. Due to expense and life just having gotten busy I had pretty much put my interest in firearms as a hobby on hold. I used to go shooting every week but as of late I hadn't been shooting in probably 6 months or more. this completely re-sparked my interest in all things tacti-cool. I think I'm ready to get involved in an actual shooting sport now. Just trying to get smaller groups on a piece of paper from behind a bench isn't going to do it anymore.

I'm really glad for my basically last minute decision to piss off my boss and take the week off to come to this, it totally blew away my expectations. I was totally not expecting this to be such a professional training course. This is the kind of thing I would expect to pay a lot of money to get to do. I definitely learned a lot and it really was a lot of fun. Lord Skeletor and the other instructors were all enormously helpful and seemed to be all around good people.
It was also really cool to meet the rest of you internet nerds that I hadn't met yet :)Ranked #9 internationally at 118lbs by WIKBA http://www.womenkickboxing.com/wikba...rch%202009.htm

If you decide to try combat shooting (like IDPA) keep us in the loop. We'll make sure you get moving in the right direction.
BTW, tight groups are nice for target shooting. For combat shooting, we want to "spread the love"--everywhere from the hips to the heart/lungs to the head. What good does it do to put two bullets side by side through nearly the same bunch of tissue that you already destroyed with the previous bullet? Find some new "meat" to tenderize with your hollowpoints!
Here's that Vortex Sparc--- you can get two of them for the cost of one EoTech.
