It's crazy to think that you would probably blow through $500 worth of ammo(at today's rates) in one training session.

 

Chris is a great teacher, I took one of his pistol classes. If more ammo starts to show up on the market I may take the carbine class, but not until I can replenish my stores.

Hi Guys,

 

Couple things:

 

Since the last ammo crunch a couple years ago I have allowed dedicated and conversion .22 carbines and pistols into classes. Some people don't agree with this but some training is better than no training.

 

And, If you look at the recent website updates I have reduced round counts in all classes from 500/day to 300/day in an effort to help all of us conserve what reserve ammo we have.

 

This class is almost full with 1-2 seats still available.,Look forward to shooting with some of you soon.

 

Thanks,

 

Chris

Hey Chris,

 

As I told one of the other posters, I don't mind expending the ammo if it is in the course of training. I understand the reasoning behind reducing the round count of your classes, but do you think it effects the overall reinforcement of the training? I'm not questioning your decision, just wondering what you thought.

Hey Checker,

 

I don't necessarily think "high round count" is any indication of good training because you may or may not be installing bad habits depending upon the course work or drill. However, reps are important for any physical skill set. I would submit that training is where you get the educational component and knowledge and practice is where YOU rep it out and make it your own.

 

Just my take

 

Thanks,

 

Chris

I've attended CCS 1&2, as well as CPS 1&2, with Chris and MDTS multiple times, and the level of training, professionalism, and legitimate real-world application is incomparable. If I wasn't as busy myself, I'd be right there on the line with you-- have fun and bring a note book!

Chris' classes are top knotch. Ive taken a bunvh of his classes and would recommend them to everyone. I've been on the fence about taking this carbine class again in March because I'm low on 223 ammo but may do it with my .22 AR.

I think there is one more spot left.

Well, I woke up sore, so thats always a good sign. The weather was a bit cold and a little wet in the end but held off for the most part of the day. The training itself was somewhat different from other things I've been taught, but I tried my best to keep an open mind and try the skills Chris was teaching. I think his training style was good and lessons were effective. Was definitely from the view of an average homeowner. My favorite part of the class was the reinforcement on clearing malfunctions. I do wish we had more trigger time on the line and got a little more in depth in each module, but I would not consider this a knock on Chris or MDTS. I have felt the same way after other classes. Such is life when you have 8 hours to soak in as much information as possible.

 

All in all, Chris had taken me out of my comfort zone, which will help me in the end. I will be able to put the lessons I've learned here with the other things I've learned and broaden my knowledge base.

    • An Election with Consequences: NJ2AS Endorses Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Mayor Carlos Rendo Posted by Alexander Roubian 425sc on October 23, 2017 · Add your reaction The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) exists to defend, protect, and preserve our second amendment right to bear arms from public officials that disdain, disregard and disrespect the constitution. Furthermore, NJ2AS is equally committed to reclaiming all of the rights we have lost to radical New Jersey politicians that have willfully chosen to empower criminals. It is by these measures we judge the fitness of candidates for public office. Additionally, a central role of our mission at NJ2AS is to ensure the safe use of firearms for self-defense. While New Jersey police officers often do a great job responding to incidents, they cannot be there the moment a violent crime commences and life is potentially hanging in the balance. It is our job as citizens, each and every one of us, to be the first line of defense in a free society when a dangerous situation unfolds. Because a victim of crime cannot sue the police or the state for failing to protect them from a crime, we believe it is important to allow citizens the right to carry a firearm for self-defense. We believe it is especially important that women be able to exercise their second amendment rights, too. There are countless, tragic examples of what happens when all a woman has is a piece of paper -- a restraining order -- to defend her from a violent threat. NJ2AS will never forget Carol Bowne, and that is why it is time to end New Jersey's deadly permit process and work towards following the Constitution as written. Phil Murphy and Sheila Oliver are not only members of the elitist Democratic Party establishment that has -- in Trenton -- made New Jersey less safe by stripping law-abiding citizens of our Second Amendment rights. They’ve actually promised to pass even more laws that would make it harder for women to defend themselves while empowering violent criminals. It speaks volumes that Murphy and Oliver are committed to turning New Jersey into a sanctuary state for murders, rapists and other violent criminals illegally living in our country and state, but don’t support law-abiding citizens exercising their constitutional rights. In their campaign statements, New Jersey Democrats continue to take pro-criminal, anti-law enforcement positions that NJ2AS finds repulsive. The most egregious being the sympathy demonstrated towards Joanne Chesimard, a convicted NJ cop-killing terrorist on the FBI’s Most Wanted. That’s why we’re glad voters have a capable alternative in Kim Guadagno and Carlos Rendo for Governor and Lt. Governor. We support and endorse Guadagno and Rendo because we believe they are best positioned to defend the Second Amendment, Bill of Rights and make New Jersey safe again. NJ2AS calls on all of our members and supporters, across the political spectrum, to get behind Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Carlos Rendo for the future of New Jersey.   Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and NJ2AS President Alexander Roubian at her birthday party Forget what your Union Tells you to do. If you are concerned about your Gun rights (or Lack Of them) there's only one choice.     Murphy= Jon Corzine 2.0 and looks like a pervert that wears woman panties and offers candy to children to enter his windowless Van. Bought his way, like Corzine into the Race.  
    • I'm a fan of the cheap Kershaws as well. Incredibly sharp and durable for the price.
    • HE did u ever try it ?? 
    • i just carry a cheap kershaw that i bought from a snap on dealer. i've got this cool little push knife i think it's called that i may start tucking into the watch pocket of my jeans.....
    • Seems like it would be a simple request, but so far Google turns up nothing. The FN-FNAR has a pistol grip stock but would be better with a regular, non-pistol grip style stock instead (in my opinion). However I am unable to find anything of the sort. I am also wondering if anyone knows, does this take the same stock as the Browning BAR MK3? And if so, where would one find a stock for this?
