They usually fit diagonally in suitcases meant to fit in the airliner overhead bin. I think you should be able to take them in the cabin. Never tried it though.




Now that our daughter is moving to Henderson, we might likely drop by FS in the summer only to get Pro Ears fitted. We decided our hearing is worth more than their ear pros.

Just going to bring a builders tube in Oct and stuff it full which will fit in the overhead.

Anyone have any they could share and send to me - I'll pay the cost plus a lunch?

Quick question/s guys on both the THG and ATHG next week -
  • Which days would we be shooting 50-yards?
  • Which days would we be using one-handed manipulations, ie., using the rear sights to rack the slide, etc?

Based on the course descriptions on the website, I believe that these are both during the THG...

Am asking because I would like to know which Glock to bring for each day/class. It is kind of complicated - one has a rear sight angled back and is not suited for one-handed racking, but then, the one suited for one-handed manipulations is NOT good for long range because of a fat front sight.

If the 50-yards and the one-handed manipulations are just on the THG class, I think I will bring the G19.3 which is suited for both one-handed racking and long range; but because of the short grip, I find a little awkward compared to my G34.3.

I know I can switch sights, etc. to my G34.3... It's just that I am lazy (well, and again have to verify zero)...

Thanks in advanced!!!

You could be called upon to do 1 handed shooting / malfunctions at any point in time after being taught the FS techniques.

...Any gun will do if you will do.

I would never recommend using stock Glock sights of any kind for helping with malfunctions. I've seen my fair share rip right off the gun. Racking off of rear sights is reasonable convenient, but you can rack off of the ejection port nearly as easy with most guns. If you want pure easy-mode, use a Trijicon RMR.

Default Will this work for the Rifle Marksmanship Class?

I set up a Kimber Adirondack in 6.5 Creedmoor mounted with a Swarovski Z6 1.7-10x BRH for brush / mountain forest hunting. It is light weight (> 6lbs with optic mounted) and easy handle and carry all day. For those that have taken the class, is this something that would work well for the Rifle Marksmanship class? Is there any benefit to bringing something more robust or will the Kimber Adirondack in 6.5 work for this class?

Understood... I guess it will be the G19.3 all throughout the four days then...

In my 4DDHG last December, I used the same G19.3, albeit with stock sights. I had since upgraded the sights to Trijicon HD XR to allow more precision shooting.

Maybe I will use different pistols and calibers whenever I get the chance to make use of private training...

Thank you for the response.

That looks like a great setup. Lightweight, accurate w/great BC. The SFP on the scope wouldn't work for me and I am always wanting more magnification. Good choice on reticle. I'm sure you know what works for you. You should be well prepared for the class with that setup.
