I may be joining Gun Crew soon...
Signed up for a course before getting a firearm? Good deal
$70 for the class + $85 for 250 rounds of .35...
Think I can grab the ammo for cheaper anywhere?
holy crap, someone actually getting training before buying a bunch of guns and thinking they're rambo.
thumbs up for being responsible and taking the proper steps before gun ownership!
and start hitting all the local wal marts, the ammo is cheaper, winchester white box is good quality for great price at wal mart.
the only issue is finding ammo in stock but if you check often you will be able to find it. it just doesn't sit long when they get it in usually.
was thinking the same thing.
oops typo... .38
Gonna be using a loaner at the range... S&W 38 caliber revolver
i took a class last year...haven't actually purchased a gun yet because i didn't have the moola
now i'm in the market..very excite!
Watcha looking at?
i'm pretty set on a glock 17 for a pistol
debating between mossberg 500 or remington 870 or remington 1100 for a shotgun
i also really want a bolt action...i just have NO idea what to look for right now i don't know a lot about guns and haven't fired a large variety of them to really know the pros/cons about different brands/models.
I've had mine for about a month now.
And Wal Mart is almost always out of ammo. I've been hitting up Academy lately. They typically have either the white box Winchester or Remmington at a decent price.
went full size on my first, kinda wish i went compact
I'd go Remy 700 for bolt action..lots of different styles and calibers avail
So, I never followed up after I took the class cuz I got lazy...
The class was great...it took place at an outdoor range...despite some minor rain...was an awesome day.
The class was led by Greg Block...really knows his stuff and has been around teaching LEOs and etc. forever. He's also big in trying to get some pro-CCW people into office here in So. Cal.
The class started with just some basic classroom stuff like learning how to handle the weapon safely (i.e. always treat as if loaded...always make sure a round isn't chambered when handing off a gun to someone...etc. etc.), how to use the front and rear sights, how to reload properly.
We then headed outside to do some target shooting at typical pistol ranges at a paper target. Practiced some double and triple taps...good times.
Was definitely a great way to spend $140 and 7 hours. I think I might end up taking some of the other classes he offers.
Now to buy myself a gun...
