    I have not taken that class but I have taken the Close Range Combat class... Enjoyed it very much and learned a lot.

    Good people great training. That is one of their entry level classes for folks that have not done a lot of gun handling and shooting on a Hot Range. I have done 4 classes with them and learned lots from each one.

    Take it!!!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I haven't but I've heard nothing but good things about them. What I like is how realistic the training seems with an emphasis on shooting while on the move (getting off of the X) and airsoft force on force. They seem more realistic than some of the other square range training courses. there is a lot of info on training/classes and equipment talk over on Warrior Talk Forums This includes what they call after action reports where students write in about the class they took.

    They also offer carbine, long range shooting classes and they have a doctor who teaches a medical course. This group is also big on retaining mags. Their philosophy is that we're civilians and we don't have a supply chain to get us new mags. If I could I would take a couple of their classes.

    Now do you have the ammo to use in the course?

    I have taken three classes from Suarez, and they are fantastic. They are what I called reality based, and not absolutely stuck in the "my way or the highway" mentality at some other schools. I recommend them highly.

    I've taken Defensive Pistol Skills, Point Shooting and Close Range Gun Fighting from Suarez. I found all of the classes to be excellent, well run and very educational. You will enjoy Defensive Pistol. Take the others if at all possible, especially Close Range Gunfighting.

    I took Defensive Pistol Skills last summer and am currently trying to save for Close Range Gunfighting.
    While I have not taken a class by another company to compare it to, I think Suarez offers a great starter class in Defensive Pistol Skills.

    They take you from proper sight alignment and trigger press to a complete draw from holster with multiple shots on multiple targets. All teaching is focused solely on the teaching you the most effective way to defend yourself with a gun. They don't bother with anything unnecessary.
