Hi Guys and Gals,
Just joined today so 'new guy' here at usacarry. This is my first post so I'll try to make it thoughtful.
I've enjoyed reading this entire thread on FS. Some of you apparently attended FS back in 2007 and others more recently. It's nice to read about your experiences there. Have any of you attended a class this year in 2010?
If you've attended in 2010, I'd like to know if the FS facilities have progressed since 2007, e.g. running water to the property, toilet buildings, RV hookups on site, refrigerators, etc.
Also, did you notice any visible sign of new construction happening on the property, e.g. Gunsmith shop, indoor ranges, simulators, hotel, air strip, housing, etc. like they described in their promotional DVD?
Some people have told me to stay away from FS, others like you say the training is good. I'd really like to hear from anyone who has attended FS in the last few months for an update please. A week long training is a big commitment financially and chronologically so I want to make the best choices for my time and money.
I also noticed that there are FS banners on this site. Doesn't that have some influence on the moderator's and admin's support for FS? Seems like it could have some influence because you may not want to lose an advertiser by posting a truthful yet unflattering comment about them. What I mean to say is, I hope the mods and admins will post honest truthful observations and opinions about FS regardless of their advertising status.
My emotions tell me to spend the money and take their class, and maybe even spend 5K to become a member. The intellect tells me to slow down, do more investigations, trust but verify, and ask former students for their opinions.
So that's what I'm doing. I hope I didn't offend anyone. Thanks for letting me post!
who else were you expecting?!
