    CCW course is a joke, I've seen people that finished course and did the most stupid things with guns
    You could find more on the internet about safety

    I witnessed a few people recently who don't need to handle a weapon. Scared to death of the gun. A few brought old junkers that the instructor refused to let them shoot. A few with so many attachments on their new Sigs,Glocks and XD's that they were overwhelmed.

    I was Air Force security police. I worked my way through college first as an armored car messenger with Brinks and lastly as a security officer at a nuclear power plant. After graduation I went to work as a deputy US Marshal. All the training I got in the military and at Glynco gave me the tools I needed to do those jobs. I believe the average person doesn't get anywhere near the training needed to be prepared to defend themselves.
    Weapons retention, tactics, grappling and most importantly a defensive mindset are all skills necessary to defend yourself successfully. The CCW course isn't meant to train you to be a gunfighter just like drivers Ed won't prepare you to race NASCAR.

    I've taken MAG 40 and close range gun fighting from Gabe Suarez. I learned quite a bit in the Suarez course, and it was a refresher on things I hadn't thought of in years. There are lots of good trainers and courses out there. Spend the money, take the time, if the SHTF you'll be glad you did.

    I took a CCW class and I have to say it wasn't much but it directed me in a direction I have never been. it opened up my eyes to self-defense laws that I didn't know nothing about since I pretty much did whatever and them worried about the outcome later. Never had the money or time to get "trained" but did watch and learn from others

    I have been through the Glock FI school, NRA FI school, NRA LEO FI school, S&W Academy, Sig Academy, a couple Wes Doss courses, a John Farnam course, a Bank Miller course, a couple Strategos International schools, FLETC, state police academy and others. My favorite was the Wes Doss schools but I probably learned the most from Farnam. I would still like to attend Front Sight and Thunder Ranch before I end up behind a desk full time.

    I'm taking a Performance Pistol class from Frank Proctor of WayoftheGun.us and I'm really looking forward to it.

    That looks like a good course Clay. Lots of training. The night stuff with flashlights is priceless.
