If a 2 day belt-fed gun fighting class were offered in the Phoenix area would there be any interest? I know it's a small section of the populace but it isn't something offered anywhere else in the training market. I'm just spitballing here.

If it was closer to home where I could drive, yes. Not taking the 249 on planes for TSA sticky fingers.

Is it BYOB (bring your own beltfed)? Or would there be loaners?

Interest? Absolutely. As with everything though the devil is in the details. It would depend on time of year as well as cost as this would be solidly in the less then useful but really awesome category.

Yes it would be a BYOB class. I know there are people out there that have them and have no idea how to milk the best performance out of them. I just had the idea last night that there might be interest

I assume there would be a market, as you said, owners that don’t rightly know how to use them.

There’s and NFA owners group on Facebook that might be a good place to bring it up.

If I had one I would absolutely attend.

There’s also a 249 group on Facebook that you could check out.

How about an updated TASI class with a counter custody module.

Hahahaha I was gonna ask if it had to be Full Auto.... Cuz if we're spit balling I have often wondered about a doctrine for Semi Auto Squad weapons--Shrikes, AR LMGs, RPKs etc

One of the best classes I ever took in Prescott involved 2 Pkms. I still want 2 for myself...

You'd only lose some in the fire control module

It's been about ten for me. A week is probably too long.

I miss the cyclic rate of the M-60, any variantOh man, I miss the 60, only got to shoot it a few times, but it was great. I remember doing a night shoot where we made a barrel glow and melted one of those foam pads to it.

I really liked the 240 but it was a heavy bitch.

The 249 was my go to though. I remember doing a pop-up range and single shooting the 500m target after the inevitable stoppage when your first fire a clean 249.

Good times was had by all.

I still have a 249 tool sitting in my weapons cleaning kit.

My favorite belt-fed weapon in 20MM:

55963

Someone have an A-4 I may borrow for the class if I can find a Mk4?
