Hate to lose you! You aren't stationed at the SERE school bychance, are you? (PM is fine if that's sensitive info).

Hermon seems to be attracting a lot of big names. I think southern Maine is lacking a great range facility to host, the club I belong to has a LOT of wood-and-bluing safety Susans that only exist to harass young members. And that club is the biggest and best facility north of the Sig Academy in NH, as far as I know.

Not at SERE (unfortunately...I tried to get a billet there though).  I'm stationed at Prospect Harbor (about 30 mins north of Ellsworth) for a couple more months.

 

I agree, the Bangor area seems to be gathering quite a following.  While most of the ranges aren't as well established or equipped there are quite a few folks up this way who are willing to pay for reputable trainers.  I guess there continues to be enough interest to be on the radar into the future.  Last years LAV class brought out a very diverse group from ME, NH, and MA.

I am interested in this, but sadly, by the time I am able to get the green light from various approving authorities (wife, training Sgt., etc) it will already be filled with an alternates list ten miles long.  I still try.

I won't be able to make this one but I will say that having attended last year's LAV class that I would recommend you guys get up there and try it.  The host was awesome and it was well run. I didn't realize some other lightfighters were there.

I'm going. Just ordered the ammo up. Can't wait.

I agree about the southern club. Nice facility but not sure how they would work with a instructor for a program like this.

This will be my first trip north for a training. Ill have to post an after action or comment on lobsters since I know he will be me to it.

Bump. Kyle posted on his tumblr there are single digit spots left in this class, which is capped at 14!

 

Sooo..... don't miss a chance to meet me (oh and Kyle is going to be teaching something about rifles at some point)

I REALLY hope you mean you didn't realize other LF'rs were at the LAV course (I wasn't), because if you are referring to Maine as "there", I don't know what to say.      I guess we will just have to redouble our Maine-awareness efforts.

I would love to go but am saving my pennies for the shoothouse in Sept.  I've taken a class with Kyle before and it was a great experience both in learning and just plain ol' having fun.  Anybody who is on the fence just go ahead and snag up those spots that are left!!!

He seems to sell out his stuff in a hurry. I tried to get into a course he's having in October a couple of months ago.  He let me know that it was sold out and the wait list was full.   Kind of bums me out, because it was a scoped rifle class thirty minutes from my house, but if he's filling them up, he's obviously doing something right.  Hopefully he'll be back in 2016.

These days, you will not be able to wait on any of his classes.  Now that he is on his own, as opposed to working under Alias, he sticks to a very strict class max (14 I believe).  While it can make getting into a class a bit more competitive, it just goes to show that he truly cares about giving his students the attention they deserve and keeping things safe.  Kudos to him
