I'll be signing up for the Rifle class next weekend. I did it for the first time last September and it was awesome.
Of course I've forgotten everything so I'll be the noobie again :noob:

I'll be there too, Geoff, so you won't be the only newbie.

Side note, can anyone recommend a good AR sling?

I'll be there as well. Got my supply of ammo from Freedom Munitions so I'm ready to go. See you next weekend! :D

No one should make decisions for us when it comes to guns and gun carry. If we do things we're not comfortable with because someone told us it's 'right' it becomes a distraction in an event where clarity and simplicity is needed.

I have the Magpul MS3 Multi-Mission Single Point / 2 Point Sling with Push Button Swivel and really like it. It can be converted from a single- to a two-point sling in seconds. Some folks like single points, which I prefer, and some like a two point so this fits the bill for both.

This is the one I got, specifically for the class last year:
http://www.larue.com/larue-tactical-padded-sling
Since I'm new to the whole 'Modern Sporting Rifle' scene, I went with a two-point sling because it seems to be a more "standard" approach. Not that it's necessarily better but seemed a good place to start. I have no points of reference, for comparison, but I was pleased with my purchase. It is comfortable (for me) and was very appropriate for the class. It seems to be very well manufactured.

Hi Michael. Some good suggestions so far. I would recommend a simple 2 point sling. I will bring a few different kinds, if you want to try them.

I've been watching a number of videos on the Savvy Sniper sling. I'm hoping to get one at some point. It's definitely not cheap, but it has some cool features.

Yikes and argh, I won't be able to make it. I have a family wedding reception that day so duty calls.

Especially argh as last year's rifle class was definitely tied for first in Best Classes Ever category.

I'll miss you all. Shoot well, learn a lot, and be safe.

Well, that's awfully inconsiderate for someone to plan a wedding on a firearms training day! :ROFL:

We'll lob a few rounds down range for you. Knowing you you'll be running through AR malfunction drills in your head during the reception. :wink:

Well, If Bill's not coming we need to borrow his rifle so that we can throw it down on the ground during the transition-to-pistol drill

We'll miss you Bill!

I've kinda looked a bit at those myself. But I feel like I'm over thinking all the possibilities. I mostly want one that goes al the way around me :crown:

I want to do the rifle class but probably not a good idea til I at least get this boot off my foot and get some more healing time.
