Legitimate Advanced Training
« on: March 18, 2017, 04:51:10 PM »
Anybody taken any classes from professional instructors?  Who were they?  How was it?  What drills or instruction really stuck?

Not yet, but really looking forward to attending a Dave Spaulding class in 3 weeks.

Until then, his book Handgun Combatives (http://amzn.to/2nDx8Su) is a good start.

I've got to find my copy of it. I'm going to be pissed if it's in a box somewhere.

I've taken a couple great classes from Paul Howe at Combat Shooting And Tactics in Nacogdoches.  Paul is former Delta Force and was part of the Black Hawk Down battle.  He's the real deal, no fluff, awesome all around guy.  Here are a couple of my write-ups with some video.

My bad, never did come back and do a write up.  Dom, you want to make a thread or shall I?

I'm looking to take a couple more of Dave's classes, maybe a class or two at Tiger Valley in my area, and I don't know what after that.  Paul comes pretty highly recommended.

Paul is also, at minimum, semi-retiring.  His classes later this year aren't guaranteed, let alone anything in 2018.

I heard that recently.  So is Dave, I believe.  I think next year is Spaulding's last year.

Go for it man, I've been meaning to but either haven't had time or haven't thought of it when I briefly had some time.
