    Let me begin by saying this was my first ever true training class. I needed help building up my rifle skills. I contacted Ryan by email and he responded very quickly. I wanted to do the 102 class but my father wanted the 101 class so Ryan said I will do a combo no problem.

    Got to the range a little early. Talked with him and his staff. A very cool and knowledgeable group of people. After the other students arrived we when to the range and began the class. He covered basic rifle skills like reloading, cover, proper recoil control and more. Then it was lots of live fire drills designed to make you think and use your whole body. Firing from kneeling, prone, and from your side( for under cars and stuff). Firing from cover, moving and firing over 400 rounds. Simply awesome. I learned so much. Ryan and his staff took extra time with people that needed more help on certain things than others. Just a great experience. Me and my father both are already planning our next trip up to Apex training. If you have the opportunity to take a class from them I can't recommend them enough!!!!!

    Thanks @Apex Defense Group

    I was at the class as well, along with two of my oldest boy's. I think we all learned a great deal. I learned that single point slings are tough on my shooting hand and that loctite is your friend. We also learned that PSA has some quality control issues huh? Two PSA guns had some fairly big issues. My old Rock River did a pretty good job, but after 8 hours it felt like the front end was made of depleted uranium. Using my psychic abilities,**sim salla bim** I see a lighter key mod rail in my future. Another big take away for me was that, while a compensator's may help your shooting, it has a detrimental affect on the guys to your right and left when on a line... thank God for MSA Sordins.

    If you are sitting on the fence about a class you need to hop off and sign up. These classes are affordable and often - two things we rarely see in firearms training right? And we all know that when guys (and gals) who shoot get together, it is almost always friendly and a good time. Apex's classes have always been both educational and a hell of a good way to spend a Saturday. You can even show up without a gun and shoot! BTW Ryan, were you not supposed to charge D2 for that?

    So come out to the next class folks! If I am available and they have room, i think i will take the ACC class coming up for a third time! Maybe I will see you there.

    p.s. I was not late.

    Thanks for the kind words my friend. Thank you for your continued business as well. I am glad you learned a lot and had some takeaways and you hit an amazing point, a class like this does allow a shooter to see what works and what fails. When we (the instructors) get as many students as we do monthly, it allows us to see a lot of different optics, weapons, gear, etc. and allows us unique insight as to what works and what doesnt which we try to pass on unbiased only if someone asks. Thank you again for all of your business, and no, no charge for D2 or Dalton for using rental guns. Its the least we could do for all the business you have given us between yourself and your family. I look forward to seeing everyone back out for a class very soon.

    P.S. you were definitely late (although I do admit I may have not been clear on start time ;) )
