    It has been hinted in a couple threads about Cerberus Training Group putting on a NW Firearms members training day, or days.

    I have talked to Joey, head cheese of this here forum and it has his blessing.

    This thread is to gauge interest and to see what members want, and what possible dates;

    1 day of Pistol
    1 day of Rifle
    1 day Pistol/Rifle combo
    2 day = 1 day each of Pistol - Rifle

    It will be at a reduced cost of 100.00 per day, and will need paid commitments to make this happen as there is overhead costs to cover...mostly that being other instructors on site. I have a firm belief of a good student to instructor ratio of 5/1 so all students get what they came and paid for.

    Camping is available with tents and RV's, just no hook ups. Someone can coordinate a group BBQ as well if wanted, as there are some pits available.

    If you are genuinely interested, please vote and respond with possible dates.

    I voted a 2 day course, end of July or first part of August would be cool, like July 28/29 or August 4/5th.

    Second pick for me would be the 1 day pistol course around the same dates..

    Any date except the 4th of July weekend would work for me. Is this a semi-auto only event? I’m more of a revolver and bolt action kinda guy.

    That free class you put on for NWFA members back in 2008-2009, remember that guy who brought a Mosin 91/30 or something? :s0114:

    I voted for two days, I have zero actual training, and have been looking to do a bit. Pretty open on dates too at the moment.

    I also love to drive my van around and camp in it.

    I voted rifle since it is the skill I am most lacking.

    End of July or beginning of August for me too.

    A 1 day course is better for me, it is hard to ditch doggers all weekend.

    Will you consider letting the 1 day rifle/pistol people fill in gaps in the 2 day class? I.e. let 2 people share the spot of 1 person going for both days?

    Lots of little and middle towns, restaurants, hotels nearby, 30 miles is nothing. Bring the missus, or not

    I'd go for two-day if I could get a room... I like my coffee and a shower in the morning (cuz I'm civilized, see)
    Probably down the hill in Biggs or that motel in Goldendale by the McDonald's.
    Anything else nearby?
