    Sigh... can't get to a class.

    Locally, the only classes that are accepted are done by trainers that only hold classes on Saturdays, and I work every Saturday from now until the end of time basically.

    After I am finally able to take my class by probably paying over 300 bucks for a private class I may learn why it is 8 freaking hours long. Until then I sit here, reading all of this great information... complaining to my dogs, cat, any anyone else forced to listen to me .

    Sigh...

    i'm sorry.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    I'm sorry to hear that, can't you get a day off of work to take your class?

    I had pretty much the same problem....every saturday I work a 15 or 16 hour shift. What do you do for a living that you cant take off a day (assuming you cant, instead of purely monetary reasons..)

    A couple suggestions?

    Try less publicized sources. I've ads on Craigslist before... in fact, there's one on the Kansas City site now: http://kansascity.craigslist.org/lss/376928849.html

    Advertise on local forums and see if you can get a group of 5 - 10 people together willing to do a weeknight (or whenever you're available). Maybe you can convince one of the well known instructors to do a special session.

    Talk to friends/co-workers about their interest. At least out here, some of the instructors will allow a certain number of people to all participate in a "private" class. Then you can share the cost.

    Good luck.

    He does both KS and MO classes, was $80 held at the Wichita Gander MT store. He is from MO, so does most classes there.

    Too bad you don't live here in MN. I hold my classes over a couple of evenings just for that reason. Most people don't want to kill an entire weekend day I find. My students and I pick a couple evenings that work for everyone and hold the class. Even if I am doing one student I don't raise the price either. Hope you find one that works for you.

    Thanks for the great suggestions everyone. If I had spent a little more time researching and less whining I may have come up with some of those myself :)

    That's what I get for staying up and forum watching.
