1. This a very generous and great idea by Mas. I also suggest that someone create a GoFundMe site, or other mechanism, whereby MAG graduates, Sand Burr graduates, or others, can contribute a small amount to help the Reichard family. If everyone chips in, it will be easy to support this family and undo their losses.

  2. Tough blow to take, I sure hope the perps get caught and guns returned. Thanks for helping them out.

  3. Great gesture, Mas. Hope the good-will comes back to you 10 fold! Best wishes for the new year. Hope to join you again soon

  4. Mas, am curious why you call the burgers “very sophisticated”. Was it their choice of what to take or their mode of entry or something else?

  5. After the investigation, please let us know. And, since your coming to San Antonio, I’ll try and make it. Hopefully, I’ll be in town.

  6. Liberal Dave,

    Just a guess on my part, but many, if not most small gun shops place their inventory in quality safes when closed for business. My guess would be that after entry into the building there was some safe cracking that took place. Also there may have been some alarm disabling. In other words, not your typical street thug smash and grab.

  7. Mas, as usual, you have the best sense of what to do to help friends in need. I only wish I had the funds to be there. My dream has always been to take some of your classes. Unfortunately, retirement budget doesn’t allow me to even shoot near as much as I want/should/need, let alone get the training I need. But, I have good insurance and am healthy – just wish I could help such a noble cause here.

    Keep up your solid work, Mas, it is needed now more than ever – especially the writings you do. I wish you and Gail a Happy and healthy New Year.

    Oh, and, as Bruce said ^^^^ – stay out of those “helocopters.” Not a good day for spelling, eh?

  8. What a wonderful way to kick off 2017 with the generous gift of your time and training us all. I called several friends hoping they will register. Please let me know if I can be of service since it’s around the corner from me in Chicago. I am still working on my training plan for 2017 and yet continuing to work on catching up on all my documentation/notes from 2016. Best Wishes for a healthy and prosperous Happy New Year to you and Gail.

  9. Burgers. A perfect example of why I don’t like to compose on my iPad, as I did in that case. I make enough mistakes without “help” from autocorrect.

    I’m sure that once discovered that the burgers in this case will be thoroughly grilled. Let’s hope that the investigators will put some mustard on it and do it with relish.

  10. Massaad – The course for the benefit of sand Bar is excellent. Wish I could attend but THAT one is out of range. What’s the chances of something near NH or Maine.. or the Tri-State area of NY-CT-NJ ?? Bet you’ll get a good response there. Thanks for the newsletter too.
