"First hit the message board on this site, its under communications. On there you will find two areas that will answer your questions. first is 'Ask the School House' then there is 'Cross Training'. HIGHLY recommend that you read all the posts before posting a question. 99 times out of 100, its already been asked and answered. Next is your MPF.
