    First I heard of it, but it does sound fun. Maybe in the future I'll take it

    I was really interested and went to sign up then saw the part about car pooling to the final location. I'm not social enough for that. Looks like a great class though.

    There's been a few classes that I really wanted to take with them but leaving my pickup truck in a public parking lot for the day isn't very exciting.

    Honestly I assumed I'll have two people so I'd be driving to final destination. If that's not the case I'll have to cancel. I don't leave my jeep In random parking lots.

    Very quick reply. They said it's no problem to bring Bertha :) Gist of it was that the range is set back in cranberry bogs, so there isn't an exact address. Woop woop all good!

    Looking forward to meeting all you NES guys who are going...
    ~Matt

    Lol. Just did a Google satellite map of 8 Cranberry Highway, Rochester, MA and you can't trow a dead cat and not have it land in a bog around there...

    Sorry for the confusion. It was meant to say we would be "caravaning in" as opposed to car-pooling. The range is set back in an area that is all bogs, so to give directions to the "exact" location is pointless. We will meet up at the gas station / convenience store and you guys will all follow me to the range.

    Is this shotgun training being held at a club range, or at a less formal venue? I know it was said as either, or, but in your opinion is a Remington 870, or Benelli, M1, Super 90, better suited for this event?

    I'm bringing a Remy 870 and a Mossy 590A1. I'm hoping that I can shoot with both and see the upside/downside of each platform.

    I believe it is being held at a "Private" range and not a club.

    OFT may be able to answer your questions better. He's been good at getting back to all posts...

    I'm surprised enbloc didn't beat me to this.... But this was a fun fucn class.!

    ...will definitely take anther course with Ben. Those sexy blonde highlights were,... Scary for a hot second...then you realize he actually knows how to...teach.... It's a lost art.

    If you do a pistol class, there, on a Sunday.... We'll come and bring one more.

    Thankyou....Christian and Jeffro

    Will definitely be curious to see if they fix my poor guy. That's awesome they have stood behind their products for you guys.

    It was a good day. day. Definitely sore this morning.

    Where else can you shoot in that many different positions, a shotgun...prone sitting, kneeling, moving, if able transition to a handgun.

    It was too hard to type with a right shoulder in an icepack and a mouth full of Tylenol and Bourbon!

    I LOVED THIS CLASS!

    Ben Dewalt made it for me. I've had other training, but Ben Put Out!

    You guys were awesome to train along side too! Everyone was serious and brought there A-Game.
    Could not ask for a better day doing the things I love.

    I worked closely with Blueskyday, mcshooter, jeffwatch and Dan (whose NES handle I forgot.) These are great guys and serious men who made this fun for me.
    They can be counted on and really add to the great NES Experience!

    To All NES members who have not taken a training class with Ben and On Site Firearms Training: "What the Hell are you waiting for? An Invitation...?"
    You will learn, you will increase your skill level, you will have fun and train in a safe, well-instructed class.
    I Promise!

    I AGREE completely.


    Ben is really great. For me he has the knowledge, experience and I can learn from his teaching style and he a HOOT to be around. For perspective: I have taken training classes with Yeager, Pincus and a few other national trainers. NO QUESTION, I think Ben DeWalts classes are so much better and 50% less in cost.

    SIGN UP FOR A CLASS AND YOU WILL EXPERIENCE IT YOURSELF AND HAVE A BLAST
