Just an FYI to everyone but the daily range fee is included. We did not want guys to have to pay for the class and then pay the range fee each day. Our goal is to make this as painless as possible for everyone.

va-dinger - thank you very much for bringing these classes to the PRK!

I attended this same class last May and Larry was able to un-train me from 30 years of self-taught bad habits and I'm a much better shooter for having attended.

And I'm still using the one-liners and off-color jokes that Larry fired off non-stop!

Good luck with the classes!

Before ammo prices went nuts we used to require factory ammo in our classes, BUT those days are long gone.

Reloads are fine now.

I've gotten a few emails & PM's asking about prerequisites for this class.

This is a "Level-1" class so it has no prior training prerequisites. It can be your fist organized training class. However that does not mean more advanced shooters should shy away. As any level of shooter will walk away from this class learning a great deal. Plus have a great time.

Not a problem guys.

Currently with the system in place Grey Group does not actually charge your card until thirty days from the class start date. We only ping the card to ensure it is available.

Please let me know if you guys have any other questions.

For anyone who had a questions on the deposit. I signed up through the Greygrouptraining website.

This is what happened and I confirmed with a gal on the phone from Grey Group.

You add the class to your cart > checkout > cc gets charged full amount of class as authorization > about 3 - 4 days later charge drops off your cc
> 30 days before class > cc gets charged full amount.

Hope this helps others out.

Looking forward to some great fun!

Maybe a few.

I need to check but 3-5 days ago we only had five seats still available. I will check and post the exact number tomorrow morning. It really would not surprise me if we are full. If so, I will be taking names and contact info for a stand-by list. Just to ensure this class is full and nobody misses out of we have an open seat pop up.
