    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.

    Yes, military training (I'm in the infantry, rifles are how we make out living), also combat medical training.

    I took a civilian 2 day pistol training course before I got my CHL (about 5 years back)

    I intend on hitting up TDI in Ohio for pistol and shotgun work after I EAS this year.

    Added a poll...

    I've had Military training, private, semi-pro training, professional training, ranging from 20 years ago to within the last year and more to come.


    Started shooting young (80s-90s) under Dad who was law enforcement, then onto Military training in various small arms ('99-'03), then sem-pro training through some NRA stuff and basic range time with some private instruction ('03-'07), then onto professional training with InSights Training, Langdon Tactical Tech ('07-2010), and this spring on to TDI, next year Sig Academy is on my list.

    Also have a half doezen IDPA matches in there somewhere.

    I'm a novice.

    I attended a 2 day course at Front Sight, Nevada; last year. And a 4 day course the year before.

    Planning on another 2 day this year.

    military, and one of the best courses that a marine could go to is the High Risk Personnel course which use to be ran in Quantico VA. they stop running it (damn shame) because a bunch of mamby pamby officers straight from OTC were getting into it some how. but the name is sorta mis representing of the course......it was actually a CC course and taught me a lot. one of the things you had to do IOT graduate was put a single round on target (pie plate) @ 10yds from your holster (concealed) in under 1.7 sec. i got some good vids from that course ........i'll try to upload them later.

    For this interested, Ernest Langdon built that curriculum and I'm happy to say he's instructing again. I took his Tactical Pistol class last fall and it was pretty darn good.

    I have had traing from NRA certified instructors in inside and outside the home handgun defense. Also had inside the home shotgun defensive class.
    I'm hoping for I.C.E.(Rob Pincus), to schedule a two day class in my area later this year.

    Yes, 4 times in the last year. Two SI Classes, one TR class and one independant class. Shot more than 2400 rounds total and had only one FTF out of those 2400 rounds of factory ammo in my G-19. My last class had dummy rounds in the mags to make sure you did failure drills. I have also shot IPSC for the last 20years. No military.

    Not going to Front Sight NV as I already shoot better than they can train me.

    I didn't check to see if you could vote in more than one category, but yes both Military training and Professional Instruction in several courses and disciplines including pistol, shotgun and carbine. Most recent pro training was about 18 months ago for a urban carbine class at APT academy in Galena, MO.
