    It was a grueling 5 day course. There were 22 students from various local agencies. Everyday, each student fired approximately 300 rounds each. Just imagine the "Once Fired" casings on the ground. The courses of fire was a LOT TOUGHER than quals with my department. They emphasized on accuracy at 25 yards on a bullseye target. We shot bullseyes twice daily and combat courses twice daily as well including Low Light shooting. The qualifying courses were the same courses they have in Quantico for new Special Agents. By the way the instructors were FBI SWAT operators.
    It was so tough that my fingers were numb and blistered. It was cold and raining and muddy. We shot in the rain, total darkness, prone, kneeling, weak hand.
    The most fun day was allowing the students to shoot everything in their arsenal. I shot the MP5 full auto and a Thompson Submachine gun full auto.

    Masarap sa first 2 days pagdating sa third, fourth and fifth, hindi na. Parang trabaho na kasi. Dalawa lang naka 1911 perso sila ang pinaka magandang tama and mabilis pa maskina single stack. Majority had Glocks, few Sigs and 92FS's. The Instructors were awesome. Their classroom instructions were on the money for today's world agenda.
    Now that I have been awarded the FBI Firearms Instructor/Rangemaster certificate, my next goal is the Basic FBI Sniper School (as soon as I have my own HPR)

    IMHO, the two 1911 shooters dominated the courses. The fastest and most accurate shooter in the class was an almost retired Deputy with a Kimber .45 single stack (no, not me.) The instructors carried Springfield Armory 1911. It just shows you that this platform is still the best.

    Ulol, mas magaling kayo. Anong videoke? na-fake ako ng isang hunghang last time.
    I am looking at two different dates to fly home. December this year para "Babang Luksa" ng mom in law ko or Feb for the golf tour.

    Ang daming brass nakakalula....I brought 1200 rounds of FMJ 185 .40, looking at the inventory today I have approx 75 rounds left. The TommyGun did not have a muzzle flip at all. I did not realize that it fires with an open bolt. The MP5 on the other hand had a lot of muzzle rise considering it was a 9mm.

    No civs. Leo's only. However, there was only one (Pinoy ito) who was not an LEO but an Army armorer.
    It took me a lot of phone calls and paperwork to get to this school. By the way, the school was free.
    Going back to the Pinoy armorer, he retires in a few months then back to Tarlac. He has set his mind on a high tech shooting range out there and would like to cater to PNP and bodyguards of the rich. I even jokingly said that I would work for him when I retire (again).

    LOLOL. Fried chicken lang ang habol ko doon.

    I wouldn't mind having a few cold ones at the Whistlestop. Mannix ordered the Tuna sisig the last time, it was very tasty.

    If I follow the curricula to the letter, then 4.5 days will be okay. We spent about 40% of the course in laws, tactics, night shoots, weapon presentation and gear. Now if you guys just want the firing phase then one or two days would be good, depending on the number of shooters.
    I almost forgot, we had to shoot 35 yards prone.
