Anybody else going?  Hermon is right next to Bangor, which some of you may remember from passing through on military flights. 3 hours north of Portland, which is about 90 minutes north of Boston. Plenty of hotels and other places for supplies in the area.

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.

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
