ALCON, My buddy and fellow gun enthuesiest is wanting to come to the Anchorage area in December (shooting for the 2nd week) to put on a 2 day armorers course. This course is for the AR 15/M4 carbine platform. For those of you that are frequent visitors of other gun forums (carbine dot net, m4 dot com etc..) he goes by the screen name Iraq Gunz.. Currently he is working with Sionics Weapons Systems and is traveling throughout the lower 48 putting these courses on for local law enforcement departments. Class fee is $400 per person but, he said he would hook us Alaskans up with a $50 dollar discount. Some basic Armorers tools will need to be purchased which I have a list with links to the best places to source them. We need to get about 15 students for this to happen and also need to find a good place to host this class.
