    If you want some serious training, the best bang for the buck and most dynamic classes IMO (and I taught CQB in the Corps and was involved in the development of the first FAST teams) is with Magpul or down at the U.S. Training Center. Check out their respective websites for training info.

    These guys have an AK class upcoming in just a few weeks, nearby to you (Hellertown, IIRC):

    These guys have a rifle course once a year in Harrisburg, but you missed it for this year:

    I would think hard about InSights, Vickers Tactical, Viking Tactics, or TigerSwan. If you were willing to travel to TX, Paul Howe's outfit if great, too.

    I'm personally not too thrilled with the MagPul courses, but lots of other people are....

    ...wherever "Bloomsburg, PA" is -- Mapquest shows more than one of them.

    Haha!

    It's kind of a shame that you can learn better tactics and shooting techniques in a few weekend courses, than you can in OSUT.

    Oh well...

    You left out EAG and your just jealous that Costa's beard is cooler than your little scruff... I am going to catch them when they come east. It looks like a pretty "dynamic" class... I also wouldn't rule out US Training (Blackwater) either...

    I would start with Vickers to get a very sold foundation of fundamentals and then try others after him... He is a great instructor and not to far away when he holds classes at South Hill. Ronnie77 and I will be heading down in Oct for a 3day Pistol/Carbine II course.
