Back in March I taught a Fighting Pistol class in which I had Ronnie and Chris Barrett as students. They enjoyed the class so much that they had us down to their place recently for a private class.



There were congressional aids, 2 NRA-ILA guys, and 2 Gun writers in the class in addition to the Barrett family and several of their employees.

The coolest part for me however was the personal tour of the plant by Chris Barrett.


Me, an M107 and Chris Barrett


A suppressed M468

I will get some more pics from the plant up later on.

Did you get to shoot the 107?
If so, what was that like?

Nice, man! They've interviewed him a couple of times on NRA News radio show on Sirius. Seems like a nice/cool guy.

Demi – Very much so

Willybone – I have shot the 82A1 which is the civilian model of the M107 and I have shot the M99 Bolt Gun. They are a blast to shoot ....literally. The brake does a very good job of keeping the blast off of the shooter but it is really not that pleasant to those standing around watching. It is most certainly a time for plugs and muffs.

Mrarmbar2you – Ronnie and Chris both are great guys. Ronnie is standing strong on the front line as a defender of the 2nd amendment.

It looks like I will be going back either later this year or early '07 to teach a rifle class.
