Thanks for the class HDF!!! Here's what I learned:

Change:
1) Put buttstock under armpit when reloading
2) Be aware of muzzle blast when shooting close to dirt (close mouth).  Might even look into another muzzle break
3) Press trigger twice when it doesn't go bang.  I have a Geissele 2 stage trigger, the Mrs has  a single stage and much lighter.  I've been practicing on hers more than mine.  So when I pulled mine, I thought I was out, but I wasn't.  It was I didn't pull  hard enough.  Ended up being short rounds of the mag that I dropped to finish the evolution.  This could be a problem if I have to use someone else's rifle (mil spec trigger or what ever).

Mrs. Change:
1) Don't worry about getting dirty (she was in the doggy position on the bottom of the VTAC), instead of lying on her side.  Doggy didn't work for VTAC, but does for other stuff ;)
2) Gear set up, mag pouch was on her support side
3) Recognize when to tap/rack
4) Don't put mouth behind buttstock, rifle kicked and hit her in the lip during bottom of the VTAC (reminded me of that scene in Sgt. York when their at the range and "Pusher" had his thumb in front of the bolt of the rifle.  He said it helps with balance, then the DI let him shoot and it pushed his thumb into his eye.)
5) She was very tired due to her cancelled flight the day before, but now she know how to some what train when tired and not perfect conditions.

I learned a lot about the gear I’m running. My vortex sparc shook loose during the v-tac board drill and I should’ve have recognized it sooner and reacted properly. I knew there was a problem when my POI was completely off from my POA. I should have got my BUIS running instead of trying to correct my shots. What an awesome time learning.
