I have taken this class. Will is an excellent instructor, knows his stuff and presents material with a hands on approach. I learned a heck of a lot about my AR in that class.

Tell him I say hi and that I am still planning on getting him up here in Portland one day. I have not forgotten him. Just distracted by other stuff.

I have a few more coming up too, hopefully a big one in jersey, though it'll likely be closed to mil and LE, unfortunately.

I was telling Will about your thread on the class and that one particular poster, if you remember. That guy was the perfect example of why these classes are so useful.
