What ever it is its not ready yet and they couldn't tell us. But more word in the next couple of months. But they said it would really cool!
Indeed, the only thing to make it better was clearly adding Bojangles to the catering schedule and more references to Magnum PI during training. We'll definitely take that to task in next year's eventI think I can start by saying that this event exceeded my expectations in every way.
The WOFT facility is awesome. The ranges are well outfitted, the grounds are beautiful, the indoor facilities are well appointed, everything is clean and the food provided for breakfast and lunch everyday is really good. The staff are absolutely fantastic. They’re super accommodating and helpful, from making sure you have loaded magazines to making sure you’re staying hydrated. The focus on safety is excellent and the realism of the lowlight and the coffee shop scenarios is top notch. Phillip and the whole WOFT team just do an amazing job to make sure you get the most from your experience and you leave having learned a lot.
@HKPRO has so much to share. Even though I shoot the MP5 regularly, Tom helped me identify things I can do better in my operation of the firearm. I definitely need to get more efficient at those reloads. Tom is also super personable and has a ton of great information to share beyond the firearm instruction.
@bystok is a great instructor, even though he doesn’t identify as one. Derek helped me gain a level of comfort with the VP9 outfitted with red dots. I went from uncomfortable in the draw finding the dot, to running the shoot house with my new friends in an afternoon. Derek has a great sense of humor and the afternoon flew by.
@Teufelshund Tactical really helped me overcome my weak strong hand pistol shooting, which was a skill that came in useful in the training scenarios the following day. James had a methodical approach to training, concepts and techniques building upon one another. I think this is a very effective way for most people to learn. You can always talk about Bojangles or Magnum PI during breaks. James has some great stories to share, particularly about free fall parachute failures!
@straightgrain I really enjoyed chatting with you. Thank you for all of your help organizing the event. Thank you for bringing your post sample MP5’s for us to shoot, and thank you for providing the 4.6x30 ammunition for the MP7 demo shoot. We could all see that you were expending a lot of effort to make sure everyone really enjoyed themselves.
Getting to run the M27 IAR, the MP7 and XM8 was an awesome experience. Particularly getting the trigger time on a real unicorn, the XM8. Attending an abridged VP9 Armorer course with Bob Schultze is a wonderful experience. Picking Bob’s brain and getting stories about the development, teething and success of various weapons platforms and accessories was definitely another highlight of the trip. Thanks to Heckler & Koch for supporting this event, bringing experts for us to interface with and providing some amazing firearms to shoot.
Lastly, meeting my fellow HK aficionados was fantastic. Being around people that suffer from the same HK affliction that I do, is not an opportunity we get everyday. I really enjoyed meeting everyone. I particularly enjoyed the time I spent with those in my group. Everyone was dialed in, knowledgeable, supportive and a lot of fun to spend the weekend with.
I’ve already reserved my spot for the next event and I hope I see you guys there!
