Just returned from our first live fire class in Dallas (rexreviews.org if you're confused already). Epic weekend. We had 30 shooters who'd mostly not ever shot beyond 100yrds in their lives. By the end of day 3 they were all able to pass the various tests including a final exam that had them working in teams of 2 to prone out, set up, range a target using their reticle, generate a firing solution and fire on a 3-2-1-fire command such that both shooters fired simultaneously and at least 1 round landed in the vital zone of a torso silhouette target at 763 yards (they didn't know the distance beforehand) as wel as being able to do the same command fire kind of shot at a known (long) range and then follow it up with another in under 5 seconds from the time of the first shot. Everyone was able to hit to 1100 and everyone knows now how to use a data card properly. Some even teared up here and there from the sheer sense of accomplishment over the weekend. Lots of IOR Valdada Crusader scopes, some Recons, some Schmidt & Bender, SWFA, Steiner M's and T's. A good showing of good stuff. TONS of Savage rifles and MidwayUSA bags and Magnetospeeds. Only 2 rifles had issues and we had loaners for those. Don't use AR's for long range precision where the use case is high intensity and has no tolerance for equipment failure. Bad magic.
