A few weeks ago I took the MDTS training Combative Carbine Skills 1+2 class in New Paltz and I just wanted to let everyone know that it is an excellent class! Chris Fry and his staff are incredible instructors and I would highly recommend his classes to everyone. It is a very practical class with real world applications. I'm an AR novice so I was worried that I wouldnt be able to keep up but its a great class for all skill levels. It's very fast paced with alot of trigger time which makes for a fun day. I missed a few of the drills due to a mishap with a hot brass spend cartridge getting stuck in the arm of safety glasses (noones fault) but other than that I could not be more satisified with the class. The guys are very informative, patient and helpful - if you get a chance take one his classes - they will definitely increase anyone's skill level!
