Title: Waterman IL May 5-6 2012
Post by: Tornado on April 20, 2012, 11:13:35 AM
Looks like the line if filling up well for Waterman May 5-6th. But we could use a few more IIT's and Instructors still. Please check your calendars and PM Instructor Scheduling if you can make it. We'd love to have you even if it's only for 1 day. Bring a friend or two.

Thank you. Look forward to working with you both again. What's this I hear about a name change?

We were talking about how we picked our forum names.  I shared what we originally planned and chickened out when it came time.  I'll have to figure out how to do it , and see if they are available.

Any other instructors interested? We've got 15 pre-regs so far so looks like we'll have plenty of shooters to work with. Should be a good time sharing history and marksmanship with some nice people who are willing to get off the couch.  O0

Tornado, I'm bringing some friends of mine. I was thinking of shooting/requalifying on a bolt action with them, but was wondering if I could still participate in the event as a student since I've already made Rifleman.

Title: @Tornado regarding Optics used in USMC Bootcamp
Post by: SemperFindley on May 15, 2012, 10:47:51 PM
@Tornado, I asked my friend that most recently graduated from bootcamp and he said the Marine Corps was teaching with Iron sights when he went through, but companies after his were starting to use RCO (ACOG) optics on the rifles. When my other friend comes home in about a month I'll ask him. I hope for the sake of the USMC they stick to the Iron Sights as long as possible and then train with the optics for specializations. Also I talked to my dad and he said he would buy me a Kimber 1911 - Warrior.

I like your forum name. :) Thank you for this information. I'd be very interested to hear if there are any changes.

Come out and shoot with us again. I'd like to see you build on the progress you've made. Dry fire practice at home 10-15 minutes, 2-3 times a week and most likely you'll achieve Rifleman at your next Appleseed.
