On the second try, they make you sign a paper saying you are going on academic probation. After that see ya with a big fat I owe you attached.

    Now those that can make through Millington have my respect as they go through a whole lot.

    Swift is far from being a dictatorship, and it's certainly not boot camp. You're there to learn. Kinda like college: you go to class, and after class you have homework. I guess for some people that's too much to handle. Oh and they don't make you sign anything, that's up to the individual. Everything is clearly laid out and there are no surprises. You can attend Swift's class for the first 3 days and owe nothing.

    Millington was like boot camp for some Rocky. Some could not hack it and choose to go home. In the beginning, they did not say the part where were gonna stick you with another classmate and have a instructor per 15 students. I am just stating facts.

    Well I don't know how you're coming up with those facts. You were in the same class as me, and it wasn't a 15:1 ratio.

    John, the range instructor. He has a vest that says Denton on it. Tony Wisener and the classroom instructor were great. The hotel has an problem so beware.

    Funny, I haven't heard those complaints from anybody else, Hunter. Yeah, I know. I won't go into details as to why you feel the way you do. You are entitled to your opinion.

    And when you find a motel in the South that doesn't charge over $100/night and is perfect, you'll please let me know. I might want to take a little vacation.

    There's lot's of nice hotels down here for less than $100. Pick up one of those hotel coupon books or go to Price Line and find a deal.

    Injun,

    I can name five hotels right off the back that dont charge a hundred a night in my area. Their nice and one is located in a very nice community. The La Quinta, Holiday Inn Viera, Hampton Inn, Extended Stay, Courtyard By Marriott, Holiday Inn express. These dates are right around thanksgiving so rates will be expensive. Whenever I got to NY, I stay in a suite that cost around $75 a night but this is a town that sees little tourism.
