    Hahhahaha if you go back and review some of the AARs from our classes, having fun is our third objective for every class!
    1. Safety
    2. Learn something
    3. Have FUN!

    I always tell people, bring your sense of humor, and your thick skin.

    If you are on the range, shooting guns, with awesome like minded people, and you aren't having fun.... why the *#%$#Y%& are you there?!

    Oh, that reminds me. Are tactical walkers good-to-go?
    Also, will we be having a scheduled nap time?...

    Generally I like people to have their pistols on them. I'd say 100 to 150 rounds. Good to get comfortable having a sidearm on you while running a long gun.

    Yes, again as stated, if your sister shows up we will all get some snuggle time. However for the most part, we will be in the sand so maybe a beach towel and some shovel and pail play sets.

    OFT:

    Do you have any recommendations on the best brand of bulk bird-shot?
    I'm looking at Walmart 100-round value packs from: Winchester Universal/Federal Field & Target/Remington/Estate?

    Figure you've seen what feeds/fires/works best...

    Thanks,
    ~Matt

    So, the Federal Field and Target are no longer produced/stocked.
    Fed Top Gun as good? (Blue Box)

    Hmmm really?
    There is also a winchester gray box at WalMart too.
    Any bulk bird shot is good.

    I think I'll pick up a 100 each of the newest Federal, Remington, and Winchester shotshells and self-evaluate all three major manufacturers during the training...

    Thanks again.

    I like it.
    I have to make a Walmart run soon. last time I had 35 of the 100round boxes in my cart. Guy behind me in line kept looking at me, looking at the cart full of ammo, looking at me,....looking at the cart full of ammo, looking at me,....looking at the cart full of ammo,...... I looked at him and said "Bachelor party tonight!"
    He looked even more puzzled. :)

    Now that is some funny shit right there!

    By the way, I found the Federal Field and Target (Red Box) up in Hudson, NH Walmart and picked up 3 boxes of #7 1/2. ($21.74ea)
    I also picked up Winchester Universal #8 ($21.85) and Remington "Nitro 27" in 8 for $27.48.

    Anyone else going to the class: They had another 18 100rd boxes of #8 in the Fed Field and Target at the Hudson, NH Walmart.

    The round count you require is the Minimum...right? I tend to over do it. [smile]
