    OMG WTF EOC
    I'm tentatively in, subject to scheduling. I already have two weekends in April blocked for work-related travel but I'll make every effort to get to this if I can evade conflicts.

    Damn, I really wish I were able to make this I hope someone writes up a good AAR and maybe takes some videos if possible.

    If anyone in AZ wants to go and needs a loaner let me know.

    Update, we had a bunch if requests for an AK class that is not the Uber Spetznaz flaming Hind helicopter type of thing. Wayne is imminently qualified to teach a solid basics of how to run the AK after spending years in Iraq doing exactly that for the Iraqi police.

    So, we thought it would be interesting to do a two day ďAsymetric CarbineĒ class for a couple very viable defense carbines that are not ARís and the class would be on simple TTPís for running and maintaining the AK based guns on day one and the AUG on day two. We should have some loaners of both for those who have one or the other.

    I have always found that having not just passing familiarity, but actually knowing how run a variety of common systems is a solid skill set to have. Kind of like knowing how to shoot and run a Revolver, 1911, And TDA even if you just shoot Glocks. People who are familiar with how we take a solid, simple, safe, fundamentals based approach to teaching will find that we will do the exact same thing with the AK and AUG platforms.

    Just a Hairy Special Snowflake supply clerk with no field experience, shooting an Asymetric carbine as a Try Hard. Snarky and easily butt hurt. Favorite animal is the Cape Buffalo....likely indicative of a personality disorder.

    Sir are we having trouble getting enough students for just an AUG class? While not a master with them I have enough trigger time on AKís to know that I can run one in an emergency if itís all I have. More importantly I have enough experience with them to know I have zero interest in anything AK. Iím all about a 2 day AUG class and will travel to Dallas for one. Iím not interested in spending a dime on AKís.

    I also have found one day classes typically donít get in enough reps to feel like Iím building a solid skill set. I was thrilled with the opportunity to spend 2 days working the AUG with one of the few people skilled enough to teach it. Iím going to be extremely disappointed with anything less.

    This is always a balance. I will take this into account. I have learned the hard way that people saying they will spend the coin to come to a class and then actually paying and showing up is another. That experience comes with a deep financial penalty in the lessons learned department. The AK/AUG idea came from students actually in a class....basically, the ones who have shown up. I am still working through this and on a facility. I will keep folks updated. The other option my be an AUG class this year and an AK class on the same format next year.
