AAR LMS Defense Carbine Course, King County, Wash. 17 Dec 2013

Bug Stomper ·
LMS Defense conducted a one-day carbine course at a discrete range in King County, Wash. on 17 Dec 2013. It was an open course consisting of 11 students, which included law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMTs, military veterans and a few civilians. WX Weather was cloudy, with temperatures in the high 30s for most of the day. It was supposed to rain, but the lead instructor, fireguy275 , did his usual no-rain dance. That kept the precipitation at bay. Guns and Gear Carbines ranged from...

Thanks, Eric! Did you ever figure out what caused your carbine to malfunction? What were the makes of your carbine and your spare?

Great AAR by Bug Stomper. This was the first LMS class that I have attended and I anticipate that it will not be my last. As an instructor and full time worrywart, I appreciated the safety brief right off the bat. Kevin is well versed in the efficient application of the carbine and presents the material in a way that is easy to pick up. There was a lot reviewed and the time absolutely flew by. There was an equipment issue, however. Shortly after doing a fine tune on the 50 yard zero, my...

In case anyone is wondering, the Pat McNamara drill we did was " Set It Off ."

At the risk of resurrecting a dead post, here is a photo of Kevin sporting his “positive shoulder” and “kickstand.”

Kevin (left) teaches sight alignment and sight picture with one of his signature field expedient illustrations. Jordan is there to back him up.

I really wanted to attend this course, but was already at Tap-Rack's TL class. I know Kevin and he's a good dude. I've been trying to get into one of his rifle classes for a while. DJ, what was your total round count for the day?

Don't sweat it too much, Sean. It's tough to make a bad decision when choosing between courses from Bill and Kevin. Other carbine courses I've taken from Kevin required at least 500 rounds, but this one was closer to 300. The lower round count is a legacy of those dark ammo shortage days. Since registering for the course, I'd wondered how Kevin would pull off an all-day class with only 300 rounds -- but it worked. It was a full day of quality shooting and instruction without the customarily...
