    I have finished watching a couple training DVDs and noticed both instructors used the same brand AR. This piqued my curiosity so I did a quick search. It seems like a good portion of the high end instructors use 1 of 3 or 4 AR brands.

    Let's have a little contest. See how many top instructors you can find and note what brand of AR they use. Report back here w/ your findings. The most thorough list wins.

    As a sponsered shooter or instructor you shoot what ever your sponser is selling. During my IPSC days I used only Federal Ammo. Do you know why.;)

    You missed it. This was a challenge to other posters to compile a list of the nations/worlds top instructors and the brand of AR they use. Not a game where we guess what they use.

    ^^^^^^^

    That survey will tell you who sponsors the most instructors, not which rifles the instructors like best.

    And? I guess I missed the point you're trying to make. I simply asked to match up top instructors to the AR brand they use. I didn't say anything about so and so chose this so it must be GTG.

    What instructors use what?

    -----

    Remember those tests where you have two word banks each in a coloum on oposite sides of the paper and you had to draw a line connecting the word w/ its meaning? That's what this is. Match up instructor and brand.

    List the name of the instructor then brand name.

    Example: Larry Vickers - Daniel Defense
    Travis Haley - BCM
    Pat Rogers - BCM
    Navy SEAL Rich Graham - BCM

    I guess I don't understand the difficulty in matching a name to a particular brand of AR.

    Maybe I'm some sort of genius who thinks in such abstract ways it's difficult for layman to understand :D

    Kyle Lamb seems to be associated with S&W now and has a new model, the VTAC M&P15.

    i only know of two civilian instructors and thats just cuz the free dvd came with my upper... the opinions of payed shills have little weight with me. (this is not a comment on any individual's ability as an instructor, only on that they are almost always payed to use a certain brand)

    the best instructors i had all used colt m16A2.
