Hello from Black Hat Training Corps, BHTC (http://bhtcorps.com).
We have opened up our RECCE/DMR course for registration. This is an and/or course. You can bring rifles set up for either task and shoot them both if you wish.
30 second elevator description:
This is a high round count, long distance rifle course that focuses on practical employment of the AR platform rifle with magnified optics either 10+(DMR), or the 1-4 or 1-6 range (RECCE) out to the furthest possible distance. Both you and your platform will be pushed to their limits. We recommend 200-250 rounds for each class of rifle you bring. Bring more == shoot more.
If you don't know about us, feel free to ask openly here, on snipershide.com, pafoa.org or the njgunforums.

Tactical Knife Proficiencies: D.R.O. 2
This seminar will expand on the physical skills taught in the D.R.O. 1 course of using a knife for self defense. We will be covering additional situations and drills to advance the participants' attributes in the following skills:
Deployment - Accessing and utilizing your blade (focusing on the use of a folder)
Retention - Retaining/holding onto your blade
Obstructions - Getting your blade to your target while something is attempting to stop it
Without addressing these three aspects, you can't use your knife to protect your life or others around you.
This seminar will be taught by Chris LaCava, M.S., L.Ac.
Participants need to bring the following:
*Eye protection that can be secured to the head
*Folding Training blade
GAPP will be offering an AR beginners course on April 17, 2016 at Fort Dix Range 14. This course is the NRA First steps rifle course (specifically for the AR rifle platform). It is designed to introduce the new AR-15 owner to their rifle properly and safely. The classroom portion covers the history of the platform, disassembly, reassembly, cleaning, and aftermarket accessories... as well as the laws regarding rifles of this type. Several models are available to look at and will be used for demonstration in the classroom... and one can be provided for use on the range if you don't own an AR yet and just want to learn how to shoot one. After lunch, we head out to the range and zero your rifle... and see if you can hit a steel plate at 200 yards. The course length is approximately 6 hours and the cost is $180. If you're a new AR owner or if you've had one sitting in your safe for a while, come out and learn more about it. For registration info, go to http://gappnj.com/rifle/ar_beginners. The class size is limited so register soon.
If you’re in the Philadelphia viewing area, Action News (channel 6) is previewing an “Arming Yourself Against the Active Shooter” segment for tonight’s (2/26) 11 o’clock news. Previews show folks buying guns and getting training – I have no idea how the news station will treat to topic – just a head’s up if you want to watch it.
"Substantially Identical" was ruled unconstitutionally vague in a 1996 lawsuit. The court ordered the then AG to define what "Substantially Identical" means, Peter Venierio - the then AG - plagiarized the federal AWB's "evil features" list to define substantially identical, which is how this became the standard.
All the M1 Carbine clones are all illegal because AG Paula Dow unilaterally decreed them to be illegal. There was no legal basis for this, only an anti gun AG saying so. IMO this is ripe for a lawsuit, any got the cash to spare for one?
