    I going to get to one when I get all my GSSF materials back. I don't know how often they come around, but I'm looking forward to it.

    Do they provide guns and tools or do you have to bring your own?

    If they don't schedule a Course in NH....we have no choice!!:whistling:
    Only Course I see (so far....the list gets updated, I know....) for NH is
    Derry (LE ONLY!!!).....otherwise, the "closest" one to me is in western MA (Pittsfield)-- 2.5 - 3 hours drive.....each way!!
    Think I'l call the Derry PD and ask if they'll accept me if I can get a character reference/letter from my town's Chief of Police (we've exchanged ammo over the years....:supergrin:).....
    It's one of the main reasons I joined GSSF...!

    NOTE: That "exchanged ammo" was in boxes, BTW.....
    NOT opposing muzzles!!!!

    This class was in south jersey ,,must have taken those guys 9 hours to get there..
    I traveled from South East PA. ,,,wasn't bad ..1 1/2 down but 2 1/2 back due to rush hour traffic thru Philly.
    2.5 hours isn't bad if you want to take the course.

    Greene was the instructor,,he did a great job and made it fun

    In order to be certified, you have to be certifiable first. I think most of us qualify! :p

    But seriously...you get a certificate at the end of the class just like everyone else does. You will be a certified armorer if you take the armorer's class.

    I took a course today in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Fairfield</st1:place></st1:City> ct <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    It was great, well worth the price of admission. I love my Glocks even more now that I have a complete understanding of the inner working of them. A complete understanding of why the drop safe cant fail. I am completely confident in being able to take the gun down to each individual part, inspect it and re assemble it or replace bad parts as needed. I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in your Glocks and how they work. I hope I am not a gun nerd but there was not one boring part of the class. <o:p></o:p>

    Just like a good movie it seamed I just sat down in the morning and the next thing you know it was over
    <o:p> </o:p>
    I just completed my first parts order I plan on placing as soon as I get my armorers certificate <o:p></o:p>

    I don't remember seeing a Glock Armorer course scheduled for Connecticut. I had to go to NJ to take mine in December.

    I hope your class goes as well as mine did. I was lucky I had a set of my maglifying reading classes with me, and I also had a lighted magnifying glass that made it easeyer to read the small part numbers

    Both of which I was not smart enought to plan ahead to bring,they were just in the car I took there.

    Have fun

    Hi :wavey:

    Just remember if you are joining / renewing with GSSF and planning to take the AC put AC (bold and big) at the top of your membership form. That way they know to get your membership processed and into their database asap. Donna will email your member number to training and you will need to register on line for the AC and you are in!!
