ECRG is an excellent class, and Randy does a great job teaching it. You can read about my experience in his class here.

You wanted some intense pistol work that streches the square range as far as it can go, force on force, AND vehicle gunfighting. Combine that with an extra day of our world famous Shotgun Gunfighting and you get THIS weekend class combo!!!

The shotgun is the best CQB weapon in existence today. This dynamic course presents a reality based, aggressive, close quarters combative method of deploying the shotgun. Most shotgun schools spend a great deal of time discussing modifications and additions to the shotgun, or try to turn this CQB weapon into some sort of a rifle.
Such is happily NOT the case in SHOTGUN GUNFIGHTING! In this class you will learn what the shotgun is really for, and perhaps as important, learn the weapon's limitations. After a brief overview of the fundamentals and a skill check, we progress quickly to advanced reality-based drills. This is the Shotgun version of Close Range Gunfighting. All of its done on the move! Whether you are a private citizen, a police officer, or a soldier - if you rely on a shotgun for self-protection, this course is essential.
DURATION: 1 day PREREQUISITES: NONE AMMUNITION: Approximately 100 rounds of Birdshot, 25 rounds of Buckshot, 15 Slugs and 50 rounds of pistol ammunition YOU NEED TO BRING: Spare clothing appropriate to the weather, lunch/snacks and water (minimum of 1 gallon per person) for the entire day, baseball or other style hat, sun screen, bug repellant, allergy medication (if needed), chair (if you have a problem with sitting on the ground, note taking paper/pen/pencil and a boo boo kit (bandaids, gauze pads, antiseptic wipes, antibiotic ointment and tape) REQUIREMENTS: Shotgun (any action, caliber or stock configuration), All shotguns must be equipped with a sling, Pistol with at least two magazines, Suitable Bel, Holster, Magazine Pouches, Shotgun Ammo Pouches (Butt Cuffs or Sidesaddles are acceptable alternatives), Flashlight attached to or separate from weapon, Ear & Eye Protection and Elbow pads are strongly suggested INSTRUCTOR: Randy Harris

EXTREME CLOSE RANGE GUNFIGHTING
(Formerly Titled - Close Range Gunfighting II)
Our Close Range Gunfighting Course has achieved international recognition as the highest level training available anywhere with a handgun. There is much, however, that cannot be studied in depth in that class purely from a lack of time. In Extreme Close Range Gunfighting we've gone even further.
We cover many of the topics only hinted at in CRG, such as Shooting from seated positions (ie., in a vehicle), fighting when injured, and a dynamic module of instruction dealing with the ultra-close 0-6' distance. We also introduce fundamental gun vs. knife concepts. Most importantly, in this course we introduce the student to the dynamic and chaotic world of Force-on-force Interactive Training. Through a series of carefully executed and designed drills, the student will get the opportunity to apply what they've learned against live role-players. This is as close as you can get to a real gunfight without risking your life.
Although there are no official pre-requisites for this course, we must point out that THIS COURSE IS DEFINITELY NOT FOR BEGINNERS - All attendees should have a thorough understanding of the defensive pistol fundamentals. If in doubt, please call us first. Come join us in this exciting and cutting edge training event.
* You don't need a Glock or a Custom 1911 to attend this class! Shoot what you carry. Any caliber or action type will do fine here - Revolvers are Welcome!
DURATION: 2 days
PREREQUISITES: Students must have attended a Suarez International Intermediate pistol class
AMMUNITION: Approximately 300 rounds (minimum) and approximately 300-400 (minimum) good quality plastic pellets : NO STEEL PELLETS

BEST VALUE IS BOTH CLASSES FOR ONLY $575!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just a quick reminder. This class has a little bit of everything....live fire while moving from side to side, forward and back and at all the oblique angles using the Pekiti Takeoff. Then you get to test it in Force on Force, Defending SUL and other 0-5 foot issues, and Vehicle gunfighting live fire from your vehicle.
Very few places do you get ANY of these things in a class and NOWHERE except Suarez Int do you get it all in ONE class. This one is right around the corner....
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!
Guys it looks like this class in Chattanooga may be the LAST offering for ECRG since Gabe's ECRG class in Sept is already full and this class will not be offered in 2011.
In 2011 this class will be broken up and different parts absorbed into the Advanced Close Range Gunfighting, the 0-5 foot Gunfighting class and the FOF classes.
So this may be the last opportunity to get the moving and shooting in all directions,the vehicle gunfighting, defending Sul and FOF.... ALL IN THE SAME CLASS! You'll still be able to get that stuff in the various SI classes (0-5 feet, Advanced CRG, FOF) but not again in ONE single weekend class.
Hope to see you there!
Just a reminder that this one is right around the corner and we still have spots available.
There really is no better way to get a feel for how you will perform and what you can do to improve performance against a live opponent than to do a class that involves Force on Force. This class has that.....plus a whole lot more!
