Even with the retention screws OUT it barely fits. Dunno if the combat model has some different specs, but anyway, if anyone going wants a free comp tac infidel/see if it fits their sig, holler and I'll bring it.

Not worth the hassle to me to return it, and I don't plan on buying any other sigs this year (which is a sure sign I'll buy two :lol: ). I don't mind giving it away to somebody if they'll get some use out of it.

Got a galco triton (what I use for my glocks) on the way instead. Also, Raven updated my order to 'printed' :lol: which I think means they are ready to charge me and put my printed order on a stack this high...
Bring it, there will be a couple Sigs in class!

The raven I received two months about was in my hands about two weeks after the printed date. A lot faster then the first one I ordered. So you may have it in time for the class.

Okay, the club is once again playing games with me. I put in the request for the extra guests but it doesn't sound good and they want me to go to a club meeting to plead my case. I'm not seeing this go well because their 'instructors' say it's a bad idea. As an off note, I've done this twice already with and without Don and I've never had an issue. I informed them that I have a professional instructor helping me, we'll see. I really need to have a friend help me out and get a membership, 57plymouth? Anyone? :lol:

Anyway, these are the folks that are 100% in and coming:
RG
Omega Man
Doc66 (Instructor)
Dave M (Instructor)
TDW
Mister Dark
57 Plymouth
The last one
Equuleus (He'll be there 110%, that's just how he does things. Well, unless a grievous misfortune befalls him. Fuck off grievous misfortune.)
+2 of Doc's homies.

I'm sorry but Redeyes and JC, you guys are on hold. I'll let you know ASAP if they allow this.

I looked into joining, but the monthly meeting that a new member is required to attend before joining, is tonight at 7:30 P.M..
I have a class from 6 P.M. to 8 P.M., and the location of the class is an hour away from the club. I could probably make the new member range safety briefing although, it would be tight as I would get out of work that Sunday at 7:30 A.M. and there would be nearly a two hour drive to the club. I could qualify for an associate membership as I live more than 75 miles away, but I have no idea what that means or if I can afford the fees.

Edit: An associate membership is $100. I could do that, but I can't make this monthly meeting. I also don't have a membership card to any gun rights organization. I have no problem with getting one though.

2nd Edit: If there is a way to join, in time to help with the class, let me know.

Hi well sorry to put you through so much trouble but I'm going to have to back out anyway. We just rescheduled a software release and I'm going to have to work that day.

I have emailed the VP concerning my interest in joining MCRC. I will post again when I recieve a response.

Edited to add: Further perusal of Google maps shows that I don't live a straight line distance of 75 miles away, more like 60 miles.

Better post detailed AAR's with pictures so the rest of us can live vicariously... :(

Are beards required for MilCopp pistol classes, or just for their Carbine I/II courses?

Your sleeves will suffice. Note that I have no beard or tattoos of any kind, much less sleeves, so hopefully I will be allowed to participate.

Okay, last update on particpation. My request for extra guests was denied because they need to defend their feudal order. I'm very sorry but they've limit me to ten.

These are the particpants:
RG
Omega Man
Doc66 (Instructor)
Dave M (Instructor)
TDW
Mister Dark
57 Plymouth
The last one
Equuleus
+2 of Doc's homies.

That's the limit. I'm tired of getting jerked around by these guys.
We all need to be on the same page while we are there. Do not talk to anyone else that comes up to us about this being a course or a class. Don and Dave ARE VOLUNTARY SAFETY OFFICERS. No matter what is asked, no matter how squirrelly they get, that's it. We may have to all go to the bathroom together but that's the way it is. We are having a range day for a group of friends. Full stop.

As usual, we have range problems, and we overcome, somehow!

Sorry everyone....

Now if someone would just donate about 100 miles of range to us (yes, I meant miles) we'd be set (or I could win the lottery, and that'd mean having to play).

Wyoming, Montana, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, looking at you!

Well, just make sure we all look scary as hell and that should eliminate most people wanting to spark up some conversations.

I'ma be bearded up to give me a -10 to suckiness (I hope). Tattoos will only be visible if we have topless day at the range (yay hot brass). I will bring a marker for TDW to draw some bad ass anchor tats on his forearms and to print 'ar15' on his knuckles.

I live in CO and damn if I could find a range/crater for us to play in I will. Laws/assholes vary county by county here and more often than not it's just a pain in the ass.

Also, IS IT FUCKING JANUARY 27th yet??? I'm getting antsy. :twisted:

I just got an email back from Stephen Smith. They won't let me join the club this month. I have to be at a meeting to be voted in.

I haven't gotten an email from Stephen Smith yet. I keep hoping that we can get the range for a couple two day rifle courses, but I am losing hope. The questions about our teaching techniques and number of students we teach at a class couple with the comments "Our range instructors" and "The board wonders" just makes me hate FUDDs even more. I directed them to our AARs when they asked me about what kind of class we teach.

I doubt they even read them.

Ah well.

Sweet. Did you find the Pickens Co. range? I'm thinking of heading out there Friday to shake off the cobwebs if you're interested.
