    I've had a few questions pop up and I wanted to get the info out:

    There will be a night shoot on TD1, make sure your light works and you have spare batteries if you want to participate.

    You can pay by check or PayPal.
    Your class seat is not secured until payment is received.

    My max class size is 12, so if you want to bring a group of buddies contact me sooner rather than later.

    The range facilities at EVTC are outstanding for practical carbine, but are not cheap. However, the range fees are built into the class fee.
    This is not a 0-25 meter ammo-burner class, it is a 0-300 rapid precision class. Every round you fire will be with a performance standard attached. The 1500 round ammo requirement is not set in stone, but rather to permit remedial practice, extend firing time, and give the student every opportunity to solidify their trained skillsets. If 1,000 rounds is all you can bring, we can make it work, just let me know.

    Cheers

    Here is a link to a YouTube video of the Echo Valley Training Center.

    This should give you an idea of the facilities where our course will be held.

    Echo Valley Training Center has a deal with the Marriott nearby.

    $70/night gets you a room and a breakfast buffet.

    It's only 20 minutes from the Training Center.

    Go through the "Lodging" link on EchoValleyTrainingCenter.com.

    Northern VA residents, how often do you see a trainer of this caliber conducting a 0-300 yard carbine class within driving distance of NoVA? $350 including range fees.
